Amanda N. Rocks!
We feel lucky to have found such an amazing teacher! She has a gift for teaching and keeping social media obsessed teens engaged in the subject matter. She was always timely, organized and professional. She provided great tactics for test taking that can be applied elsewhere. She teaches the AP concepts and how they can used during the final exam.

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
