I am a practicing attorney, licensed in Illinois. My legal experience is in Criminal Law, with an emphasis in the field of Rehabilitative Justice. My undergraduate degree (with high honors) is in History, specifically American History. My current position demands that I spend much of my time teaching workshops and seminars for groups as well as conducting tutoring sessions with individuals who are in need of legal counsel or just some guidance on negotiating the Criminal Justice system. As such, I have been a tutor for the past six years.
Are you curious as to why a law is written the way it is? Why are there laws that say, "Don't do this" and laws that say "You must do this"? Would you like to learn how to interpret a statute? Do you need some assistance in learning how to understand legal precedents? What was happening during that time period that led to a law being passed or revoked?
My teaching style is interactive and I do not limit myself to conventional materials. There is much to be learned from literature, classic and contemporary, as well as television and cinema. Field trips may also form part of the curriculum.
It has been said that law is the love child of two dysfunctional parents - History and Politics. Whether you are a student at any level, paralegal or a citizen with a desire to learn more about America, the American legal system and how the two are intertwined, I can help you.
While law and law related topics are my favorite subjects, I am certified in American history, English, Government and Politics, Law, Literature, Reading, SAT Reading/Writing, Vocabulary, World History and Writing.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
