I was an attorney for 38 years at the same company and now have retired. My strengths are in writing, grammar and the teaching of concepts to non-lawyers. I have edited dozens of pieces of written material for conciseness and clarity and have written many articles for non-lawyers that successfully imparted difficult concepts. If you or your child needs to improve his or her writing style or the use of proper grammar and punctuation, I can help. I am patient and easy-going and good in conveying material to students of all ages. I expect focus and progress, but I also make learning fun. I also can help high school students who will be taking the SAT in reading and writing.
