With 15 years of experience teaching high school students AP US History at a Massachusetts high school, and a total of 23 years of teaching honors and college prep level courses in World History, US History, Psychology and Economics, I am excited to share my enthusiasm and skills in one-to-one tutoring sessions. As a consultant for the College Board, I serve as an instructor for new and experienced AP US History teachers and as such, have amassed vast resources, strategies and programs to share with AP students as they get ready for the AP Test in May.

What defined me as a teacher was my love of interacting with my students and the care provided in working individually to prepare them for the exam. My one-on-one afterschool sessions and evening group work were highly attended and resulted in very successful exams scores with a consistent 85% passing rate over the years.

During my 15 years of teaching AP US History, I have coached students to great success on all portions of the exam but especially those requiring written responses. Over my years of serving as a "reader" for the AP US History exam, I have read and graded thousands of DBQ and LEQ responses and, in my current role as an AP consultant, I am exceptionally well versed in the expectations of the new Writing Rubrics. In addition to having extensive resources at my disposal for practice, I also regularly conducted "Writer's workshops" for my students and pre-test prep sessions. Students leave my classroom having mastered the various elements of good essay writing included thesis development, analyzing primary and secondary source evidence and incorporating argumentation to support their analysis. Students returning from college regularly comment that my classroom was where they learned to write for the college level!

My years of teaching AP US History have resulted in my being exceptionally well versed in the extensive content requirements for this course in particular. Additionally, I have extensive experience teaching Modern World History, E

Great tutor and excellent guide.

Anna tutored my son and helped him prepare for the AP US History Exam. She is very knowledgeable on the subject. Her experience brought my son's learnings together and helped him prepare for the exam. He scored a 5 on the test. Irrespective of the high score he received, we were pleased to see a significant improvement in his abilities to write a DBQ. With constant feedback and continuous guidance, my son was able to tighten his skills and write essays from an examiner's point of view while continuously self-evaluating and improving himself. My son enjoyed her classes, and Ms. Anna's direction developed his skills well beyond the test. Thank you, Ms. Anna, for all your help.
