Many law, pre-law, and even high school students want to excel in their approach to a career in the legal field. Tom T spent more than a decade teaching first and second year law students in North Texas in a friendly and relaxed manner. Teaching LSAT prep, coaching champion mock trial and moot court teams, and mentoring lawyers and legal staff have given him the tools necessary to assist students to achieve success in their pursuit of a legal career. His experience includes serving as a professor of legal research, analysis and writing at a north Texas law school from 1997 to 2010, teaching LSAT prep at Kaplan, and coaching moot court and mock trial teams at the high school, college, and law school levels.
Tom T understands the law school experience. Whether judging advocacy competitions or in one-on-one consultations with students, he has given feedback and advice to help students deal with complex issues. Tutoring allows students not only to be sure of their understanding of the material, but also to develop a deeper understanding of the legal system and how its rules affect citizens in our society. Being able to synthesize material and communicate it back to a mentor who knows the system is an effective guarantor of thorough knowledge.
In writing, Tom T has not only drafted winning trial briefs and appeals, but also scientific documents including PhD dissertations, grant applications, and submitted articles. He has given one on one writing advice to students in many disciplines from high school to post-doc levels.
An avid student of American and World History, Tom T has developed a thorough understanding of both the currents of historical events and the progress of civilization that has driven them. He has given personal guided tours of American historical sites such as the Alamo and Civil War battlefields and has written essays on the curious characters of the Cold War. He worked in the building in which Lee Harvey Oswald was shot and went to Oswald’s high school in Fort Worth.
As an attorney, Tom T has been involved in public speaking throughout his career. From winning the speech contest of the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives in high school to speaking in professional education settings and to government and civic groups, he has developed the necessary rules of style, poise, and tailoring for an audience of an accomplished speaker.
