About John

I have been a successful AP World History teacher for years. Advancing student learning is something I take great pride in. My goal is not just to have a high pass-rate, but to teach the students how to think critically and come to conclusions by using the skills and applying the concepts we have learned throughout the year. Although teaching this course is so much more than test scores for me, an Advanced Placement course uses the ultimate measuring stick of the pass-rate on the AP Exam. My scores on the AP World History Exam have been #1 in the region for 3 out of 4 years, and #2, behind Stanton College Prep the other year. I would consider myself an expert on writing the 3 styles of essay for the APWH course and travel to Salt Lake city each June to grade 1000s of APWH essays from around the country.

I believe anybody can really do well in this class and on the APWH Exam in May. My lessons and activities are designed to not only get the student to understand the concept we are working on, but encode and recall that information for the exam. 10,000 years of history cannot be memorized. Instead, history has to make sense and understood for it to have meaning. We will look much less at who, what, and where, and much more at how and why the events of history happened. Once it makes sense, you know it forever!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.

World History

I am an experienced AP World History teacher who has taught and mastered this tough course. I also read/score the AP world history essays each year in Salt Lake City. I graduated from UNF with a degree in Social Studies Education. I truly have a passion with this course and specialize in finding ways for the students to truly understand the content so they can recall the information on test day, or even later in life. I focus less on the "what", "who", and "where", but in the "how" and "why" the events happened. We focus on how these events compare to others in history, and how they impacted the rest of the globe. It is effective. As my students have the highest pass rate in the entire district. I can help. Let's get started!
