English/ESL/Communications Tutor/LSAT/Law School Tutor

After retiring from the practice of law, my experience included several years of teaching American History to Honors students at a high school level. I continue to tutor high school students in both American and European History as well as writing and researching their projects in each of those areas. It is a rewarding endeavor because there is no reason for history to be anything but exciting.

Effective communication by writing can insure success in any field of study. Accurate and engaging essays or research papers provide the reader with invaluable information and a positive response to the writer. Proper grammar and precise explanations have provided me with invaluable experience in the practice of law, teaching in both private and public schools, and tutoring in high school and college. Journalism has been my second major and provides tailor-made support to the study and teaching the gift of writing.

My background as both an attorney and a teacher provides strong and varied experience with the essence of positive composition and effective speaking.

My background and experience in tutoring for the GRE and other graduate level exams is far-reaching. As an attorney and teacher, my students receive careful and enjoyable lessons geared particularly to reading comprehension, parallel logic, and essay writing. We work one on one with precise instructions to improve scores for acceptance to top-tier graduate school programs. Please look over my WyzAnt profile and review the student ratings there. The GRE in large part reflects communication and logic skills which are strengths I can help you develop.

SAT writing proficiency reflects proper grammar, precise thoughts and a grasp of information. Unlike creative or research writing skills, SAT writing measures application of the techniques learned during the first 12 years of education. My background provides the experience to insure effective review and increased scores.

During my work with students taking the ASVAB, I have developed a focused study for each section of the test: Paragraph Comprehension, Vocabulary, General Science, Arithmetic Reasoning and Mathematics. Depending on the number of weeks before taking the test, we work through practice test sessions, one on one review of problem areas, and an emphasis on text anxiety when dealing with computerized and timed standardized tests. I also work with the recruiters who have been assigned to each applicant to ensure a smoother preparation process.

As a professional who has pursued two avenues; a doctorate in law, and a master’s in education, I share expertise with those seeking help in selecting or furthering their career goals. During my 4 years of teaching high school seniors, I was their counselor from consideration of curriculum through submission of college essays and applications. During my years of legal practice, I presented seminars for (a.) college students and interns who were looking for entry positions or (b.) a viable method for those already in the marketplace to advance in their chosen fields. In many situations, we worked with anticipating changes in employment by revamping resumes, securing certifications or credits, or networking, to insure ongoing success or promotion. The textbook career development models were applied integrating the (1.) “career targets”, (2.) training required or preferred to reach them, and (3.) personal vs. professional objectives. My experience reflected that specifics are unique to each person, but the proven methods of career development are necessary and effective.
