I mainly tutor Advanced Placement United States History 
(APUSH) and Advanced Placement European History, but I can 
tutor most any high school history class. I have both content 
and writing expertise.
I tutor in your home, but there must be an adult present when 
I am tutoring.
I have a web site:, if you need 
more information.

Good morning parents of the Berkeley Parents Network, I am posting on this 
site to advertise my services as an AP tutor for all tests in history (World, 
European, and U.S.), and comparative government.  I am a bay area native and 
graduate of Maybeck High School recently returned from doing a Bachelor in 
History at the University of Bristol, and a Masters in Modern History at King?s 
College London.  I have experience tutoring students in the AP history, and in 
one case preparing a student who did not take the corresponding course (if you 
would like to see some of the material a prepared for him as a perquisite for my 
employment please ask).  To get in touch email David Tiedemann at, rates are negotiable.  

Best Wishes 

David Tiedemann

I am an undergraduate at Stanford and have three year's 
experience in tutoring, tutor training, curriculum design 
and teaching. I specialize in gifted, dyslexic and 
acalculaic students, and focus on giving my students enough 
understanding and confidence that they rediscover their love 
of learning. For the Summer of 2012-13, I am accepting high 
school and university students seeking to study world and 
American history, US or comparative government, or other 
writing and analytically intensive history courses at the 
undergraduate level who either seek review last year's 
material or learn new material with the view of placing out 
of their next years math class. Outside of tutoring, I also 
ran volunteer training workshops at the Chabot Space and 
Science Center, work for the Oakland Public Library, and 
founded a non-profit tutoring service.
