I have been an attorney for 27 years. Like many people, I am unemployed and am looking to earn extra money while looking for work. I can tutor on subjects from reading and writing to math and computer programs. I have trained people unfamiliar with Excel and they were able to use the program on a beginner level within a few minutes. I helped a family member with school work. She graduated grade school as valedictorian and was in the top 3 students in her high school graduating class. She went on to attend Notre Dame University on scholarship.

If a student is having problems with algebra, I have them write out their solution in full. It helps me identify where their weakness lies and allows me to craft a solution tailored to the student's needs. I can teach your child how to write effective essay answers. I can also help rehearse your child to present an exceptional oral presentation to the class.

I have a copy of the background check the Illinois Education Foundation ran on me September 2011 and can provide you with a copy.

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 took the Illinois bar exam in 1984. At the time I took the bar exam, 1984 had the lowest passing rate in the history of the bar exam. I passed the exam on the first try. Some of my classmates from law school did not pass the first time. They lost a lot of points on the essay section because they addressed one of the two issues raised in the question. One was a red herring and the other was a dispositive issue. You need to identify the red herring and why it does not matter to the disposition of the question.

If a student is having problems in more than one subject, maybe he/she needs help developing good study skills instead of tutoring in the individual subjects. Is your student having trouble completing homework assignments? What does the teacher say about the student's class participation or the accuracy of homework submitted? If there are no problems with the accuracy of homework or class participation,... read more

When writing your answers to the essay portion of your exam, you may be presented with more than one issue. One will be dispositive of the issue, but one or more may be red herrings. You need to address those red herrings and state your reasons for dismissing those issues as red herrings. If you are taking the BRI review, try writing an answer for some of the essay questions. I can review your... read more

The student actually needed a tutor in statistics. I helped tutored her on writing for her English class.
