After 25 years as a general trial lawyer - now retired - I acquired the ability to describe, argue, write about, and expound upon myriad issues of every imaginable kind. Moreover, as an honors graduate of Harvard in Social Relations, five years of Latin, and, being a zealous student of the English language with a sense of humor, I consider myself a consummate wordsmith, no matter what written challenge at hand.
What could be more valuable than honing one's ability to most effectively communicate to others - whatever the context may be (i.e.- academic, civic, business, social, etc.)!!
It would truly be a privilege to help in any manner possible, and I look forward to working with you for a satisfying, optimal result.
I have loved, played and studied chess and the history of chess for over 35 years and have on many prior occasions played for several hours or longer in one sitting - often with the added challenge of using time limits on all moves of as little as three (3) minutes total(!!) by means of a Jerger Uhren Dual Chess Clock. With the chess clock, combatants can win or lose either on the board or "on the clock" by running out of time as the dreaded red flag drops!!
Over my many years of playing I have faced opponents of every conceivable level and consistently am able to hold my own - by now my years of experience enable me to see traps early and apply effective counter strategems.
It would truly be a privilege to share my knowledge and passion for this amazing game with any student interested...
I have been Blessed with a Intensive Honors Social Relations (Psychology, Sociology, and Anthropology)B.A. cum laude degree from Harvard, I am well-versed with both how to apply to appropriate, desired colleges/universities, and, what is required and/or expected for collegiate students to determine, pursue and succeed in their most personally-fulfilling curriculum once admitted to a given school.
Moreover, as a Wyzant tutor a major portion of my lessons have involved (well-reviewed) SAT (and SSAT) Preparation and Writing,including a specific focus on optimal composition of the universally required Common Application Essay. These lessons have, of course, necessarily continually involved numerous students either applying to higher education institutions or already in college, seeking assistance in specific course assignments.
Further, as a former trial attorney for 25 years, I developed a well-honed ability to
plumb and know hundreds of varied individuals'(clients') primary goals and objectives, and, how best to serve as a highly effective advocate on their behalf.
Finally, I firmly believe in and have directly benefitted from a fine College education and genuinely care about students' scholastic advancement, encouraging high-school students and many others (whether students of mine or not)to do everything possible to persevere and acquire a college degree for obvious reasons.
Thus, I respectfully submit that my education, background, training and experience clearly qualify me for approval in College Counseling.
Blessed with an excellent education (Roxbury Latin, Newton High, Winchester College, Harvard University and Suffolk Law School), including 5 years of Latin, and having worked as a trial lawyer for 25 years (now resigned from law practice), I have learned to use English in every conceivable manner to express and communicate myself and issues at hand. Moreover, I have always loved the study of language and particularly the word history and etymology of the English language and consider myself a true wordsmith.
As I have effectively (as reflected in my reviews) tutored students over several years through WyzAnt (and on my own) for both the SAT and the SSAT tests in all subjects covered (i.e. - Math, Verbal, Reading Comprehension, Writing and Vocabulary), as well as the areas of Grammar, Writing, Editing and Latin, and,given that the ISEE overlaps the SSAT and is, in effect, a "subset" of the SAT, I respectfully submit that I am fully qualified to tutor students in ISEE preparation.
My method of choice is to use the Princeton Review's "Cracking the SSAT & ISEE 2014" (which my research has confirmed is simply the best) which I own and require students to acquire their own copy. We then work - by well-paced and planned weekly lessons- methodically through the Review leaving no educational/instructive stone unturned!
I am an Honors graduate of Harvard in Social Relations and spent 25 years as a practicing trial attorney (now retired) in every court, so I am comfortable with people; but, more importantly, I truly enjoy teaching in a conscientious, caring and enthusiastic style.
As an Honors student from elementary school through Harvard College I was trained in and learned superlative study skills. Then at Suffolk Law school to obtain my Juris Doctor Degree and thereafter pass the Mass Bar on my first attempt I had to and did further refine my study skills. Thereafter as a trial attorney for 25 years I had to even further enhance my study skills for trial presentations and briefs. Because of my diverse educational and experiential background I know precisely how best to approach and employ specific study skills for a wide variety of subjects and how to pass these skills on to a student of virtually any age.
As an Intensive Honors student in Social Relations (Psychology, Sociology, and Anthropology) at Harvard University, I was required to write numerous papers on diverse and challenging topics both related to Social Relations and other areas such as Literature and Religion.
As an Investigator for the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination for four years and a former trial lawyer (now retired) for 25 years, I was constantly involved in written work of every kind and sort from investigative reports, to briefs, complaints and persuasive presentations for every imaginable forum.
Thorough and Cheerful — Anthony was a pleasure to work with. Every session he came prepared and went to the trouble of finding additional resources to assist my son's sessions for SAT practice. He was always organized, timely, and he held high expectations for homework for my son to practice before meeting again. Most of all, he had a very pleasant demeanor when working with my son. ...
