Are you studying for any the following exams: AP US History, AP World History, or AP European History? I can help you get high scores with a strategy that works for you. Most courses and textbooks overwhelm students with a detailed chronology and too many facts. However, to score well on the dbq and essay questions, the key to success is careful, coherent argument and analysis. I work intensively with my students to explain what they need to do and give them the tools necessary to ace the test.
I am passionate about history and enjoy teaching, as it allows me to share my knowledge of how history works. Studying history is about asking good questions and weighing the evidence to grasp what happened. I encourage students to look critically at the sources and analyze carefully the motivations in play. Teaching is fun, as I also learn from my students, who sometimes challenge my own assumptions. My lessons are highly customized to the needs of each individual student. I always aim to finding a simple but efficient strategy that navigates students through the complex course and heavy work load. The best reward is to see how quickly my students improve.
I am a certified and experienced online AP History teacher with a PhD in History from Cambridge University. I teach at a local education center in Potomac, Maryland. I am also a prize-winning author and lecturer specialized in modern history. I have worked as a historical detective solving war crimes cases and editing encyclopedia volumes, so I can teach students how to find the right answers. I have an excellent knowledge of US and World History and can guide students smoothly through these invigorating courses.
If you want to get the top grades and enjoy history, I am an experienced professional who can advise you how to write well-organized essays to meet the rigorous demands of the AP exam.

History

American History,

American History

I have always been fascinated by US History. My main areas of expertise are in the eighteenth and twentieth centuries, but I have also studied the Civil War in detail and am very knowledgeable about American foreign policy. As a tutor, I like to focus on exam strategies and time management. US History appears to be a lot of work, but it is fun to study and very relevant for understanding politics today.
European History,

European History

I wrote my PhD on the Wars of the French Revolution. I have researched the Holocaust for 25 years and served as an expert witness in Nazi war crimes trials. I have taught at all levels from undergraduates to seminars for faculty members. I have published four books and edited an encyclopedia, so the little I don't know, I can teach you how to find.
Government & Politics,

Government & Politics

I am an expert in US Government and Politics, both in terms of the history and its application today. I am very familiar with the tutorial method from studying and teaching at Cambridge University. I can prepare you for the tests by asking the right questions and guiding you to the best answers.
World History

World History

I have a PhD in History from Cambridge University and I have researched and taught on four continents. I have written five books on topics from eighteenth-century Europe to the Holocaust. If you have a difficult historical question, I can help you find the right answer with my encyclopedic knowledge that will examine it from a global perspective.

Great teacher!

Martin helped my daughter study for her APUSH quiz and was outstanding. My daughter is in the 9th grade and is finding her feet. Martin helped her to practice strategies that enabled her to answer the questions with a good focus in content and with the right context.

Outstanding Tutor - Exactly What We Were Looking For

We are thrilled with Martin's tutoring services. For context, my son is a highly accomplished student who was seeking a tutor to really challenge him and provide specific feedback in preparation for the AP US History exam. We tried a couple of other tutors (who also had strong reviews) before finding the right fit with Martin. Martin is terrific substantively while still being very personable. Our family has worked with many different tutors over the years and Martin ranks in the top 1%. He earned my highest recommendation!

Great War Crime Trials tutor

A really insightful lesson. Martin was clear in his explanations of my questions and raised many interesting points that I otherwise wouldn't have thought about. The session was a good balance between Martin's own experiences in war crime trials and his views on current trials. He was accommodating in understanding what I wanted to achieve from the session and how it would aid my current research. I would thoroughly recommend Martin.
