I am an attorney pursuing Ph.D. in English Literature ready to tutor in LSAT prep, College Writing, SAT Writing, SAT Verbal, Reading, English Literature, Philosophy, and Humanities with special expertise in Graduate Admissions Personal Statements.

I am an attorney admitted to the New York State Bar Association currently pursuing my doctorate in English Literature with hundreds of hours of tutoring experience. Equally comfortable with LSAT prep as I am working on grammar and argument for college essays and papers in English, Philosophy, and the humanities, my unique educational background makes for a multi-purpose, flexible tutoring experience. Want to spend an hour editing and working on a Literature paper and then a half hour on test-prep? Or perhaps you need to spend a half hour going over the rudiments of Plato and then an hour straightening out the grammar on a personal essay for graduate school admissions? Time spent with me can be mixed and matched to achieve multiple academic goals.

Patient, understanding, & poses great questions — Tony was professional from start to finish. He did lack in a certain "tutoring" strategy besides read & review, but was able to thoroughly explain his thinking process and mine. This allows one to understand what I'm doing wrong and hopefully how to correct it. He enjoys tutoring, as can be seen, and is patent to the needs of the individual being tutored. Would recommend! Just commuting for me is ...
