Harvard 2X Test Expert: Top Scores on LSAT, SAT, ACT, GMAT, and GRE

As part of my undergraduate training in history, I studied under many of the world's leading scholars in American history. I'm also the leading online reviewer of American history books. I've read widely in American history and have visited the sites of many major events. My specialty is improving essay writing. History essays are different than English ones, relying more on logic and factual evidence. There are also more subtle issues of interpretation. I am happy to help students improve in these areas.

Harvard Grad, SAT, College App Essays, Elementary (K-8) Teacher

I am still amazed and intrigued by how many different "American" histories there are wrapped up into what we traditionally call American History. As Colin Woodward argues in his book American Nations, there are at least 11 different rival cultures that make America into the diverse place that it is. As a life-long student and historian of America, I feel that the more I learn about world history and European history (especially), the more I understand about my own country's history. Much of American history can be explained in terms of understanding the cultures, conflicts, values and tradit [more]

Learn How to Learn: Ivy League Multi-subject Tutoring

American History is a continuum of many events and ideas. America is the first country in history that was founded based on the idea that all people are created equal. However, studying American History shows that achieving the goal of true equality in reality has been a continuous and often difficult struggle. There have been many steps forward, backward and sideways as the states stagger in different directions at different times; unsynchronized in their actions unless compelled to alignment by judicial decision. This is the American way of democracy, awkward, yet successful. [more]
