Want to improve your grades? Interested in learning a new language? I've been told I have a talent for teaching along with patience, tenacity and a sense of humor. I use the analytical and communication skills I honed in law school to break down information and explain it in simple, easy to understand language. I follow the traditional teaching method using explanations, examples and demonstrations but I also believe in the Socratic method. That is I like to guide the student through his own reasoning and analysis. Although some material needs to just be memorized it is a critical part of education to learn how to think. Check out my background. I would love to help.

I have a Juris Doctor degree from Baylor Law School. In addition to the required classes, I took enough electives to have a concentration in criminal law as part of my degree plan. Some of these classes include criminal law, criminal procedure, post conviction procedure, Juvenile Justice and an internship with the McClennn Co. DA's office. I also have a license to practice law in the state of Texas. In order to be given this license I had to pass the Texas Bar Exam which tests knowledge of criminal law and criminal procedure very intensely.
