Mr. Brodsky

Hello! I'm Tim Brodsky. I teach AP World History, AP Macroeconomics, and Project Based Learning 2 at Circulos Advanced Learning Academy.

I was born in Kyiv, Ukraine, and immigrated to the United States of America as a child. I grew up in Springfield, Illinois. My love of history is rooted in understanding my own story and past. I hold a bachelor’s degree in film from Columbia College and worked as a visual effects coordinator for major motion pictures as well as a freelance video editor and animator. After launching a successful educational YouTube channel and educational media non-profit, I went on to complete a Master’s in the Art of Teaching from the University of Southern California (USC) in 2019. You can learn more about me and see my portfolio of past work here.

Fun Facts: I have a black cat named Coffee Bean and I have launched two cameras into space using weather balloons.

I look forward to working with you as students and parents as we practice and master new skills while we explore the themes, traditions, histories, and cultures of the world as we breakdown and figure out how the world around us works.
