Dynamic AP Teacher with more twenty-five years experience in AP US History (20 Years), AP Government and Politics (12 Years), AP European and World History (10 Years). Multiple years serving as reader for national exam. Providing clarity in areas of contextualization, analysis, bias analysis, and subject changes over time. Exceptional in providing clear instruction to improve student writing and clarity of concept thought.

I have been developing methods for the past twenty five years to better communicate the expectations and requirements of the national exams in Advanced Placement History and Government courses. My education has been a gradual improvement in my ability to explain the expectations of the national exam and I have developed step by step approaches to tackling the requirements of writing and retaining the content of Advanced Placement courses.

History and social science is the entwined narrative of human relationships over time. It is a fascinating study that if analyzed with thoughtful care, can expand a student's understanding of the modern world using concrete examples of human choice and behavior from the past. it combines elements of psychology, anthropology, sociology, economics,. and political thought to explain the motivation and decisions that led to events from the past. I look forward to working with energetic minds to understand the why as much as the who and the when of history.

Huge Help

My son's first session with John went great. This is his first AP test as a sophomore in High School and is nervous about this test. After his first time meeting with John, he felt much more at ease and is looking forward to 2 more sessions before the test! I also want to mention that John was very accommodating with his scheduling especially since we found him just a few days before the exam takes place. UPDATE: After 3 sessions with John (would have done a few more but we found him at the last minute) my son felt a huge sense of relief from the anxiety of taking the test. John was able to give him some great strategies for attaching the exam. He was easy to work with. We highly recommend John as a teacher and tutor.

Very Good

I thoroughly enjoyed working with John, he was very knowledgeable about the material and very personable. He is a great person to reach out to for the AP US Government + Politics Exam as he is familiar with the structure of the exam and what the exam specifically entails in each section. Would highly recommend!
