AP World History teacher with 3 years of experience in Charlotte offering tutoring

Methodology

My teaching method is more conversational and I do teach through humor to help students remember and understand concepts. I have taught grade levels from 9th all the way to senior level. I tend to go chronological and with AP, there is a concentration on causes and effects, rather than memorizing dates. I concentrate on the why something occurred and what happened as a result of it, connecting it to larger themes throughout history. These are skills that can be used throughout high school and college. I will work with you on skills through practice and go through the work with you to help you see strengths and weaknesses. For writing skills, it’s very formulaic.

Background

I have been teaching AP history courses for 3 years. I have been trained in the new AP World course. I have taught almost 300 students in that time and have achieved 3's on the exam, and even 5's. I specialize in teaching students the skills, while also discussing content. This past year, the pass rate of my students was over 85%. I was also a reader this past year so I have experience with how the College Board grades DBQs.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $20/h

Details

Rather than travel to each other's homes, we could meet at a Starbucks. If a student cancels with less than 24 hours, the cancellation fee will be the cost of 1 hour of time.

Ms. Saunders (Gemma) is a magnificent teacher that makes learning very fun. She’s very nice and prepares students to succeed in both college and life. Although some of her work is a little difficult, she’s very understanding and will help any individual who shows the motivation to learn and improve. I still use the skills she taught me in college and they work like a charm. In all, Gemma is a trustworthy teacher who cares about her profession and teaching students about the importance of history.
