My name is Mario and I work for the Federal government, but I would like to have the opportunity to give back through tutoring. I have tutored several individuals over the years in subjects ranging from English and ESL, to History and Social Studies, to Spanish and Italian, among others. I have also assisted students in writing papers and preparing to study for tests/exams, the SATs and Maryland Bar Exam. I have a law degree and have mastery of Italian and Spanish. I can tutor individuals or groups.
I have a JD from The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law, which I received in May 2001.

These included conducting briefings to staff or senior officials, leading presentations and meetings to audiences of anywhere from 10 to 30 people, conducting webinars (including one with an audience of 1000), and giving remarks to large audiences (anywhere from 50 to 500 people). I have also served as an MC at cultural and charity events with large audiences.
Excellent, Patient and Flexible Tutor — Bar review is a stressful period. Even when one studies for at least a bit every day and makes every effort to follow the study schedule suggested by the major bar review courses, the sheer amount of material is overwhelming.
