Mr. Preston Bakshi

About: I teach high school social studies and specialize in Advanced Placement World, US, and European history. I was born in New York City but grew up both in Los Angeles and New York because my family worked in the film industry. I have two children also in high school. I enjoy reading about history and practicing baseball with my son
 
Education: I have a Bachelor's degree in History from New York University and a Masters Degree in History from California State University, Northridge. I also have another Masters in History from University of California, Irvine where I am close to completing a PhD in history. I am a trained historian so my students get the opportunity to truly study the discipline of history and share in my enthusiasm for the material.
 
Teaching since: 2003. I have been teaching at the University level since 2003 and at the high school level since 2015.
 
Teaching at Ribet since 2017-2018 school year
 
Favorite part about Ribet: I love the learning environment. Ribet students are serious, courteous, and hard working and they expect the same from their teachers.  The small class sizes and freedom we have in the classroom mean as a teacher I can truly give students the quality of education they deserve.
