Exceptionally qualified tutor, especially for LSAT, SAT, writing skills, analytical skills, public speaking, interviewing, and admissions essays. I have extensive teaching experience, at Northeastern University and Harvard Law School. I was voted Teacher of the Year in 2007 by the student body at Northeastern Law School. I am a published author and have a lengthy record as a top-notch scholar. Aside from teaching and scholarship, I was an accomplished courtroom litigator, with considerable experience in capital punishment (I was lead counsel that led to the ending of capital punishment in New York). My communication skills are exemplary, which facilitates my ability to create a dynamic learning environment for students with a variety of learning styles.

I am currently a psychotherapist, specializing in family counseling. I would very much welcome the opportunity to tutor you or your son or daughter as a supplement to my psychotherapy practice.
