Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

American History

I am permanently certified in New York City and New York State in Social Studies, grades 7-12th. I have taught American History for 5 years at Walton High School in the Bronx.
The focus of high school American History course is the study of the historical development of American ideas and institutions from the Age of Exploration to the present. Students will learn fundamental concepts in civics, economics, and geography. They will obtain a basic knowledge of American culture through a chronological survey of major issues, movements, people, and events in United States history. There is a special emphasis on the structure of American History Regents Exam. Students are given multiple-choice questions and essays from previous years American History regents exams in order to get enough practice and familiarize themselves with format of the exam.
