Mr. Steve Heimler, better known as the face of Heimer’s History, is a high school teacher who has specialized in pretty much every AP History class there is. Because he is so experienced with these exams, Heimler designs his lesson material to be used as tools that students can recall in the Free-Response portion of their exams. He also hosts live-streamed reviews with thousands of students across the country tuning in and learning from him before they take their exams.

Mr. Riley Sinn teaches both AP Psychology and AP Human Geography on his YouTube channel Mr. Sinn. On this channel, he provides extensive explanations into specific concepts covered on the AP exams.
