Hi, I'm Jeff. I'm a native San Franciscan. I've been in academics for most of my life, and I would like to give back. I am a solo attorney with specialties in real estate and estate planning. I also have experience as a substitute teacher and personal one-on-one tutor at the high school level.
I also have a varied academic background: I have a Bachelor's degree in Molecular and Cell Biology from U.C. Berkeley; a Master's degree in English literature from San Francisco State University; and a Juris Doctorate (J.D.) from Golden Gate University. My interests are varied, and I feel I am competent to tutor students in multiple subjects.
I have an interest in education, and I often feel that the classroom environment may not provide the proper support for the student. I believe in teaching from a holistic perspective, and trying to bring together real-life or concrete examples to help bring understanding to difficult or abstract subjects.
I have also recently passed the July 2012 California state bar exam, and able to tutor another in test-taking skills at various educational levels.
I took the California State Bar Examination in July 2012. I also took personal Bar Exam preparation studies from Themis Bar. As a recent examinee I am confident that I can assist others in preparing for the materials in the exam, as well as support during studies.
I took and passed the CBEST on December 3, 2005. I had a total passing score of 156.
