Bio

My name is Buck and I am a tutor and high school teacher with 10 years of experience in the field. I have taught just about every English and History class available to high school students over the years. I received both a B.A. (St. Louis University 2009) and M.A. (University of Memphis 2013) in Art History. I have a love for History and English because I have a love for cultures, and I find the best ways to learn about a culture (beyond travelling there) is to study its history and read its...

My name is Buck and I am a tutor and high school teacher with 10 years of experience in the field. I have taught just about every English and History class available to high school students over the years. I received both a B.A. (St. Louis University 2009) and M.A. (University of Memphis 2013) in Art History. I have a love for History and English because I have a love for cultures, and I find the best ways to learn about a culture (beyond travelling there) is to study its history and read its literature. In between teaching, I have traveled to 30 countries, lived in 8 cities spread out over 3 different countries and 3 different continents! I studied Art History in Madrid, Spain for 5 months, and I taught English in Indonesia for over a year.

After finding a way to balance travel, my education, and my career, I decided to settle back in the US. Since then I have taught high school History and English at private schools in California and Florida - as well as teaching community college Art History in Tennessee. During that time I have taught Art History, World History, American History, English Literature/Language/Composition, Geography, and Humanities courses.

Beyond having a strong background across a wide range of courses, I specialize in test preparation. My students in AP US History have a 95% pass rate with the majority of scores being 4s and 5s, and my AP Art History students have a 100% pass rate! I will work with you to not only help you learn the material needed to do well in the course (and hopefully enjoy it as well), but also work specifically on test taking skills and how to answer questions to score higher on these very specialized standardized tests like AP, SAT, and ACT tests. I can also work with you on test anxiety and stress management skills related to school.

I look forward to working with you this school year!

Very knowledgeable and helpful tutor for Art History at the university level

Buck helped me with my college Art History class. For the first few sessions, he provided insights and went over certain pieces of art with me as well as time periods so I could understand the major themes. Buck can cover a wide range of time periods in art. We reviewed Roman and Byzantine art and Romanesque and Gothic cathedrals. We looked at Saint-Foy, and other pilgrimage cathedrals and reliquaries. We also looked at Notre Dame to go over aspects of Gothic architecture. And, he is well versed on South American and Mesoamerican cultures. We used online images and PowerPoints for the works to study key components of the images and their purpose or function. Buck also helped me prepare for writing my final exam essay. He made the art much easier to understand and helped me create a good outline for my essay. I would highly recommend Buck for any art history tutoring at the university level. He was always prompt, responsive, and insightful. We worked together online and not in person and it was still very worthwhile and effective. Having Buck as a tutor was invaluable in my preparation for my exam.

Reliable tutor

Buck was extremely accommodating to my schedule as we did a multi-hour cram session before my APUSH midterm. He was able to quickly and thoroughly get through a ton of the material. We even had time to work on SAQs which he helped me break down and understand how to answer them better. I would highly recommend him if you need APUSH tutoring.

Morgan, 1 lesson with Buck

Extremely knowledgeable tutor

Buck has really helped my daughter out as a tutor for both AP US History and English Literature. He has helped her prepare for AP tests by covering the content and practice exam questions. He also helped her with Literature, including writing poetry and working of Theme for other pieces of literature. He is also good at working with NY Regents exam material for both history and English. He really explains his topic very well in a way that’s easy to understand.

Friendly and knowledgeable tutor

Buck helped me with my APUSH class. We focused on the AP essay writing portion and he really helped me write a thesis and outline my ideas more clearly. I would highly recommend Buck for anyone needing an AP History tutor.

Ade, 1 lesson with Buck

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Buck is a wonderful teacher. My daughter likes him very much even in the first lesson. Buck’s teaching is very clear, constructive, and easy to understand. He is very helpful in teaching my daughter the key concepts and how to write a good DBQ. He focuses on my daughter’s needs very well. I highly recommend him as a high quality tutor.

Xiao, 2 lessons with Buck

Knowledgeable tutor

He was able to go over short answer questions and explained how to write a DBQ to me so that I had a solid understanding of what it was. He gave me insight and background on the topics we discussed during the lesson, which was very helpful as well.

Jun, 5 lessons with Buck

Extremely helpful

John helped me with an ancient sports and spectacle class. I thought this would be difficult to teach as this was a niche topic but John was extremely helpful and was able to provide me with lots of easy to understand information as well as outside resources and study techniques to help me succeed.
