About Preston

Now available for online tutoring!

Hello, I specialize in Advanced Placement U.S., European, and World History. I have two M.A.s in History and have completed graduate level teacher training in both World and U.S. history. I have over fifteen years experience both teaching and tutoring History at the high school/college levels and over 1100 hours tutoring here on WyzAnt. Whether you are looking for help with classwork or specific exam training or both, you couldn't find a more effective or qualified instructor in the Greater Los Angeles/Pasadena/Foothills area.

AP History can be a challenging subject for even the hardest working students but I have found that the help of a good tutor can make a big difference. I am available for scheduled weekly meetings to keep up with classwork, emergency cram sessions, paper final drafts, or whenever the need arises.

I travel to students in the convenience of their own homes or at a public location such as a Starbucks or a local library if you prefer. I mainly operate out of the Silver Lake/Los Feliz/Burbank/Glendale/La Canada/Pasadena/Arcadia areas but will consider west LA and the valley depending on availability. I am now available for online lessons as well.

If for any reason you are not completely satisfied I will refund the fee for that session. I have a flexible cancellation policy as well but would prefer at least a 24 hour notice

I look forward to achieving the rewards of success together. Many thanks for your consideration.
