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.

Knowledgeable and kind

Amanda jumped to my daughter's rescue when she was stuck writing a history paper. She helped clarify and analyze the text and help her organize her thoughts on writing the paper.

Sandra, 1 lesson with Amanda

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!

Zori, 50 lessons with Amanda

Very knowledgeable and engaging tutor

Amanda has done a great job helping my niece understand world history and make conceptual connections. She has been very patient even with some of more geography question to help my niece see the history unfold. My niece is now asking much more thoughtful questions and even taking more interest in modern events. For a 16 year old this is huge. Highly recommend Amanda
