About Amanda

History is fun! I didn't think so when I was a kid. But I learned the secret in college and now I'm hooked -- and I promise, you will be too. After receiving a BA, MA and doing work towards a Phd in history at UCLA, I started writing history books (the "Nutshell Notes" series), taught American history in Lithuania and tutored learning disabled students. I now teach Western Civilization and Middle East History at Santa Monica College, conduct professional development classes for Social Studies teachers, and help students achieve outstanding scores on their AP history exams. My specialty: making complicated information simple and interesting. History is fun! I didn't think so when I was a kid.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Social Studies

I've been tutoring history, political science, religious studies and geography for the past five years. I am also president-elect of a state social studies council and am currently planning the next conference which features 100s of sessions and workshops on the topic.

I am also a professor of history at a college in Santa Monica.

Awesome!

My son was struggling with AP World History before he started tutoring lessons with Amanda. Despite his best effort, he got Cs on most tests. Immediately after he started tutoring lessons with Amanda, my son's grades dramatically improved and he started getting As. It almost seemed miraculous! Amanda is an amazing teacher!
