History is fun! I didn't think so when I was a kid. But I learned the secret in college and now I'm hooked -- and I promise, you will be too. After receiving a BA, MA and doing work towards a Phd in history at UCLA, I started writing history books (the "Nutshell Notes" series), taught American history in Lithuania and tutored learning disabled students. I now teach Western Civilization and Middle East History at Santa Monica College, conduct professional development classes for Soci...

Amanda is an amazing tutor. She taught our son AP US History and he absolutely loved her enthusiasm and teaching. He learned so much from her in a very short time. We wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn APUSH from the best teacher.

Amanda was quick to respond and able to set up a lesson same day. She was very knowledgeable in World History topic and was able to help my daughter review for an exam and give her more confidence to take the exam the next day.

Amanda is always willing to go the extra mile to make sure her students get the most out of their sessions and are prepared for class or tests. You will feel way more comfortable with your subject knowledge.
- Melissa C. from Los Angeles, CA
Amanda jumped to my daughter's rescue when she was stuck writing a history paper. She helped clarify and analyze the text and help her organize her thoughts on writing the paper.
- Sandra Y. from Los Angeles, CA
My son was struggling with AP World History before he started tutoring lessons with Amanda. Despite his best effort, he got Cs on most tests. Immediately after he started tutoring lessons with Amanda, my son's grades dramatically improved and he started getting As. It almost seemed miraculous! Amanda is an amazing teacher!
- Zori W. from San Jose, CA
Amanda has done a great job helping my niece understand world history and make conceptual connections. She has been very patient even with some of more geography question to help my niece see the history unfold. My niece is now asking much more thoughtful questions and even taking more interest in modern events. For a 16 year old this is huge. Highly recommend Amanda
- Jusitn P. from Pacific Palisades, CA
Our daughter loves Amanda and is 100% more confident about her ability to do well in her very challenging AP US History class. ! Amanda is such an excellent teacher of AP US History. She knows how to engage a student in the complexities and to develop their own critical responses to US history.
- Ellen C. from Pacific Palisades, CA
Amanda helped my son go from a D to getting an 87% on the first exam in AP US History after they starting working together. She's extremely knowledgable and makes it fun and interesting. She's an excellent tutor. We highly recommend her.
- Jennifer M. from Los Angeles, CA
I had a question that only someone with Amanda's special skills and depth of knowledge could answer. She knows the AP system from the inside out, and that is just what my son needed as he started in his first AP class! She has a good sense of humor and a very easy, comfortable manner. Highly recommended!
- John C. from Carmel, CA
Amanda tutored our 15 year old in AP US History this past semester. She was amazing! My son found that she was time efficient, patient, fun, and much better at explaining the material than his disorganized high school teacher. She knows the material so well and teaches with such high interest that I would want to listen in when I walked past their tutoring sessions. She is very valuable and did a great job preparing him for his AP exam. I would highly recommend Amanda.
- Martin B. from Sherman Oaks, CA
Amanda is helpful and focused. She is very knowledgeable with World History but more importantly can teach it. She is always prompt and makes good use of the time while tutoring.
- Afshan A. from Springfield, OH
Amanda did a wonderful job helping me get ready for my AP World History Exam and I am looking forward to our next lesson.
- Jodi S. from Land O Lakes, FL
Amanda has found a way to "turn the light on" for our daughter when it comes to AP US History. The skills our daughter's learned have helped her focus and identify what the important themes are, while also teaching her to understand what specifics she needs to understand as well. We're very pleased.
- Sam S. from Culver City, CA
Amanda has done an amazing job helping our daughter in her AP World History class. She helps her recognize and understand themes and synthesize tons of information into manageable concepts. We highly recommend her!!!
- Kristen S. from Ashburn, VA
Amanda and I went over the DBQ aspect of my upcoming AP European final, focusing more in depth on the information pertaining to the dates on the documents. Prior to the meeting, she provided plenty of information that would help and throughout the meeting showed her expertise of European history. Very professional and helpful!
- Marjorie T. from Torrance, CA
Amanda saved my daughter she is a tutor angel. My daughter takes a very difficult English/History combination class. It was the weekend before finals and my daughter was in tears. Amanda came to our home two days in a row and helped my daughter learn a semester's worth of material. Thanks Amanda!
