It is important to know my student first. A good working relationship of trust, confidence and a suitable comfort level are all needed for tutoring to be successful.

Students can blossom in the quiet, friendly and focused environment that I create for a tutoring session. And of course, there are no classroom distractions. Here, the tutor and student can focus on the subject at hand. In this environment, my goal is to see each student achieve mastery of content, analytical fluency and self-confidence.

A successful AP student builds strong skill sets throughout the academic year. The development starts at the beginning of the course and is continuous. These skill sets require much more than content knowledge. While strong content knowledge is needed, it is only a part of the necessary tools that are needed. Based upon a solid knowledge of content, the student is helped to build a foundation to develop the historical reasoning skills of comparison, causation and continuity and change over time (CCOT). These are the three reasoning skills identified by the College Board and they appear on the AP exam. I can help each student develop strong skill sets including the all-important writing portion of the course.

I also teach writing at California Lutheran University which I have done for about the last 12 years. I am a grader for the AP History exams that are administered by the College Board. I have been critically reading and writing for decades as both a teacher and a lawyer. Based on all of that, I train my students to write because they have something to say - not just to say something.

Writing

Good writing is an acquired skill. At this point, you probably need help with some basics either thesis writing, paragraph development and / or overall essay organization. I train students to write a good, solid expository essay which is the backbone of college assignments. I have taught writing for over 10 years at the college level as an adjunct professor. I have taught AP history students for 10+ years how to write effectively in answering a variety of essay questions. I am a grader of the AP history exams for the College Board. I am a retired lawyer with solid writing skills and I earned the 2nd highest writing score on the state bar examination. We can make this come out right.

History

American History,

American History

I have been highly scored by Wyzant students as a 4.9 out of 5. I am College Board professional - trained to teach AP Histories and hired as a grader for AP history exams. I can show you how to master DBQs, LEQs - the scary stuff that makes you worry. I have also taught college level writing for 12+ years at a university in southern California. I'm easy to work with.
Government & Politics,

Government & Politics

I combine an advanced skill set in law, government and history. I have taught all of these subjects at different levels including Advanced Placement (AP). As a result, I am very fluent in all of the subjects and especially so in the “foundational Documents” and the US Supreme Court cases, all of which figure prominently in the study of AP US Government and Politics. I am a grader of the AP histories for the College Board. I appreciate the imperative need for students to understand the AP rubrics and to write according to them in order to be successful. Lastly, I am a retired lawyer, I was a law clerk to a judge at the Court of Appeals and I earned the 2nd highest essay score on the bar exam. I’ve got the right stuff. Let’s work together and make this come out right for you.
