I am a certified Math teacher (grades 5-8, 9-12), with almost 10 years experience. I have also taught Biology and Computers (MS Office), and provided test prep for the GED, SAT, LSAT, GMAT. I have worked with adults and children at varying learning speeds and styles, many children with IEPs. I am patient and precise. I excel at filling "gaps" in knowledge, encouraging students to make sense of the material.
My first career was in (Tax) Law, Estate Planning, Charitable Trusts, and more recently Bankruptcy Law. I published several chapters of treatises and worked in big corporations (banks) and represented various clients. I am still a licensed attorney, with professional level research, writing, and editing skills. I like to investigate topics of current interest to me, like Food and Drug Regulation, and Real Estate Law.
I attended prestigious schools. My greatest asset is an infectious love of learning and an empowering method of self-education. My students do not become dependent. I guide them to find the right answers on their own.
Exam prep is a blend of content knowledge and test-taking skills and strategies, for time management and maximizing point score. I gained valuable experience working for a large SAT prep company. Ultimately, the student need puts in the time and effort; the right tutor is the person who brings out the best in the student.
