An Introduction to APUSH

2nd session

In this course, I will be going over all the different types of questions and essays you will encounter on the AP United States History exam. I will go over how I recommend you tackle each problem and do some practice. EDIT: I will be entertaining the idea of possibly reviewing the big themes across all the periods in APUSH.

The Engines of World History

2nd session

The most essential part of an AP History course is understanding trends, changes, and consistencies in history among nations and regions. Several times per week, we will conduct in-depth explorations of specific key topics in World History, such as Religion, Trade, Taxation, Bureaucracy, Propaganda, State Centralization, Nationalism, Colonialism, Art/Literature, and more. From 1200 to the modern day, we will cover these topics across various eras and empires, employing numerous historical analysis tools that you will utilize in your essays. There will be no memorization of dates or random historical figures; instead, we will focus on studying the Engines of history. We will also cover how do incorporate these ideas in Essays and free response questions. Participation will be expected through either chat or microphone, cameras are not required but are highly encouraged.

APUSH study group

2nd session

I have taken the APUSH Exam this year and have got a 5. I believe that APUSH doesn't require knowledge of the material, but also complex analyzing and synthesis skills that I want to teach the students. I also want to introduce students to fun ways of memorizing APUSH material. This series is not limited to just APUSH students, it's open to anyone who has an interest and wants to learn!

APUSH Starter Course


We will cover the first 3 Units of APUSH going from the pre-colonial period to the American Revolution and the formation of the early republic. In total this should cover about 20-31% of your score when taking the test so it's a great opportunity to get a head start on a course that requires lots of memorization. We will also practice short answer questions as well as multiple choice questions. For the document based questions we will review examples and see how to formulate your responses. Lastly we will be doing a practice long essay question.

AP World Summer Prep

3rd session

I received a 5 on the 2023 AP World History exam, so you're in good hands! Each session we will cover a variety of topics, from the formatting of the exam to important essay tips for the SAQs, LEQs, and DBQs. If you are unfamiliar with any of those, do not fear! We will go over ALL OF THEM! :D This class is usually one of the first AP classes the average high schooler takes. While it may seem daunting at first, I can assure you that the key to consistently doing well on practice exams is often formulaic, and is not as complicated as it seems. My ultimate goal is for you to at least walk away with some of the tools you need to excel during your first few months of class. I look forward to meeting you all. MEETINGS EVERY SATURDAY
