I have been a trial lawyer and prosecutor for many years. Before becoming a lawyer I was a senior linguist in the US Army in Vietnam, serving as a translator/interpreter. Before learning Vietnamese, I studied French in high school and college, and won two prizes in oral French competitions.
I love teaching (though I have not tutored one on one), and have taught criminal justice courses at Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, NH, and for Granite State College (a part of the university system of New Hampshire) at its Lebanon and Claremont, NH, centers. The student evaluation feedback I received in conjunction with all three courses, was excellent and enthusiastic.
I am proficient to tutor in the areas of US History, World History, European History, Social Studies, Criminal Justice and French. Please afford me the opportunity to tutor you, or your child, in one of the aforementioned subject areas. I would describe my style/brand of teaching (which tutoring certainly ought to be) as conscientious and engaging, interspersed with healthy doses of humor. While I can't guarantee you will come away "loving" the subject (that probably is at least part of the reason for the tutoring, right?!), you will learn about the subject and perhaps, be inspired or intrigued enough by the experience to take another course.
Thank you for your consideration and courtesy. It will be a privilege to assist you in attaining your tutorial objectives.
