Excellent U.S. History Tutor

Emily is a wonderful U.S. History tutor. My son is an 11th grader at a rigorous college prep school and the expectations are high. Since Emily is currently an AP US History teacher, she is well versed on all topics and helped my son prepare for tests and presentations. Most recently she helped provide guidance on an 8 page final paper. I highly recommend Emily for any U.S. History student.

Excellent and Patient AP US History Tutor

Emily is the perfect tutor for AP US History. She is knowledgeable and very familiar with the AP exam. After working with Emily just for 1 session, my daughter feels a lot better about taking the AP exam. Emily is very patient in explaining the content and the exam rubrics so she knows what to focus on. My daughter looks forward to working with Emily to prepare for the AP exam. We highly recommend her.

Amazing tutor! Extremely knowledgeable in the subject. 10 stars!!!

My daughter was very concerned about passing her AP American History Exam. She feels so much more confident now that she is working with Emily. My daughter would not stop talking about Emily after her session with her. Emily assessed what my daughter knew and what she needed to work on. Thanks to Emily, my daughter is so much more excited about the topic and feels confident that she will pass the exam. Will schedule many more sessions!!
