My undergraduate major was Political Science with a minor in English Composition and Speech.

Hard work and tenacity made me an excellent student with excellent study skills that have served me well to this day.

I honed my skills in writing and public speaking in law school and during my legal career as solo general civi litigation practitioner.

I tutor in the subjects I excelled in at school and still have a passion for. I encourage everyone to excel in education, become a life-long learner and lift as you climb.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bar Exam

I have tutored bar applicants in the past and conducted seminars on bar exam preparation. My area of concentration is the multiple choice portion of the examination.

Public Speaking

I took Speech 101 and Speech 102 at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor campus. I also took public speaking as part of my Reserved Officers' Training Corps. In 29 years of law practice, as a litigator, I have honed my public speaking skills considerably.

Study Skills

My expertise in the area of study skills comes from being an excellent student starting in the 8th grade and continuing to the present day. I encourage students to read for comprehension, take notes on what they read, look up words they don't know or only think they know, organize each subject in a separate notebook, highlight material the teacher emphasizes, review each quiz before a bigger test and actively participate in class. I also encourage a study place without distractions and determining what kind of student you are so you can maximize your study efforts.
