Helpful with FRQ questions.
During Covid-19, CollegeBoard stated that many AP exams (including AP Human Geography) would be FRQ question only. Since I was doing rather poorly at answering questions of this format, panicking would be an understatement. Thankfully, Amanda helped improve my knowledge on how to answer these types of questions. She helped me understand what different key words to look for, and how to fully answer what the question expects from me. We reviewed over the units and I practiced different FRQs. Amanda greatly helped me by giving me tips and reminding me of my forgotten knowledge. She obviously has in-depth knowledge of this subject and she has many resources she can pull up to help me improve. Overall, a wonderful knowledgeable tutor.Qiong, 8 lessons with Amanda
Amanda is wonderful. She’s done a great job helping my son to master the material. I would say using her as a tutor is a no brainer. I would very highly recommend Amanda for tutoring human geography.Margaret, 23 lessons with Amanda
Professional and great tutor
Amanda helped my daughter in AP world History. My daughter was struggling with an essay for AP world history. Amanda was amazing. I had a very quick response from her and made an online tutor session with my daughter. She helped karin with the prompt. She was able to explain and analyze my daughter essay with her. My daughter got a 98% on that essay. I will even use her to revise the material with my daughter. She is very knowledgeable. I truly recommend her for tutoringHeidi, 41 lessons with Amanda
