Jan 31, 2023

Ready to learn the history, philosophy, and practice of an experienced professional in the test prep industry?


Meet Greg Hudson, an AP United States History teacher at Valley High School in West Des Moines, Iowa. He earned his Masters in Social Studies Education from Truman State University and has been teaching this AP History for 17 years. He also teaches as an adjunct instructor at Des Moines Area Community College.

He works with over 150 students every day as a teacher, and since most of his students are AP History students, he is certainly familiar with test prep. In addition, Greg has helped students prepare for the ACT since 2009. Today, he teaches ACT and PSAT classes a couple of times a year. He also teaches AP History workshops. Greg has created both AP History and curriculum and test-prep materials over the years, working with big names in the realms of both AP History and ACT/SAT Prep.

Finally, with regard to the AP program, Greg has participated on the scoring end of DBQs, LEQs, and short answer questions for seven years. He has also served as a scoring leader as well, helping craft the standards by which these student writings are scored.

He currently lives in West Des Moines, Iowa, the best city in America.
