About Gordon

I currently teach at a private high school on the south shore of Long Island. I specialize in tutoring AP World History, AP U.S. History, Global History and Geography, and U.S. History for the New York State Regents examinations.

Since 2006, I have been an AP® World History Reader meaning that I am one of the few local teachers who grade the essay portion of the AP World History examination. I also prepare my AP® World History students for the SAT II content examination in World History.

Since 2002, teaching has become my second career. I graduated from Hofstra University cum laude with a BA in History and a minor in Secondary Education. I was accepted into the National Honor Society of Adult Learners in Continuing Higher Education and the National Honors Society in History. Teaching has become my newly found career and I am extremely passionate about the success of my students.

I believe that every student learns history differently. I teach using many methods but I place a great deal of emphasis on material content and essay writing skills. I always create a specialized plan of studying for my students. Students with special accommodations and IEP plans are encouraged to contact me.

I am very flexible with my schedule, weeknights and weekends are not a problem.

I know that not every student likes history, therefore my job is to ensure that learning is a pleasurable experience and discovering the “big picture” the events of the past.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with your social studies needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 have been teaching AP US History for over ten years as well as NYS Regents courses in US History and Government. I have tutored local students for the last three years for their state examinations with great success and possess excellent content knowledge of both the AP and New York State requirements.

Geography

Geography was my major at high school in England as a child. I earned an "A" level in the subject and as I worked for 30 years in International Transportation not only do I know countries but their major cities, airports etc. I have also traveled extensively to many developed nations in the world today and have considerable insight as to their cultures and religious diversities.

Social Studies

Teaching has become my second career after 30 years in international transportation. I graduated from Hofstra University cum laude with a BA in History and a minor in Secondary Education. I was accepted into the National Honor Society of Adult Learners in Continuing Higher Education and the National Honors Society in History. Since 2009, I have been an AP World History Reader in both Fort Collins, Colorado and Salt Lake City, Utah. I am one of the few local teachers who grade the essay portion of the AP examination.

World History

I am certified to teach AP World History and I am also an AP Reader. Each reader is selected by the College Board to travel to a designated site to grade the essay portion of the examination. In addition, the College Board provides over 50 hours of professional development during the eight days of the reading. This year I was one of just over a thousand readers to attend the session at Salt Lake City. Previously I attended readings at Fort Collins, Colorado.

Inspired Teacher

Gordon is an inspired teacher. More importantly, he inspires my son with the fascinating way he brings the subject material to life. As if that wasn't enough, he has an intricate knowledge of the subject material and how it will be tested. I know my 10th grader is going to walk into that exam confident and prepared. Sometimes it's not enough to just know the information. You need to know how to us
