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.

Prompt, professional and knowledgeable tutor

Preston helped my daughter with AP Euro. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. Will use him again in the future.

Kristine, 4 lessons with Preston

Patient and helpful tutor

Preston can pinpoint what is important and can make suggestions without being too detailed. This allows the student to be original and independent.

Anand, 26 lessons with Preston

Knowledgable & Patient

Preston is a very knowledgeable and patient tutor. My son said "He shows a great understanding of the material even without a book" My son's grade had improved significantly in a very short period of time in his AP European class. Since Preston tutored my son in 2nd semester, my son felt very confident taking the test and enjoyed the class more.

Enthusiastic About History

Preston has been terrific for our daughter. She really enjoys history and was feeling overwhelmed in her second AP History class. Preston has helped her tailor how she takes notes to be more efficient, has taught her how to find the important information within all the material, and does it all very enthusiastically. She feels very confident in her work and is doing very well thus far.
