About Gordon


Bio

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....

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.

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.

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor

In my session with him, he helped me better understand the history behind Jefferson's presidency and overall political life. Through it, I learned much more about him and was able to deepen my understanding of U.S. History. I highly recommend him to anyone struggling in a history course.
