Law School and Legal Writing Coach
Law School and Legal Writing Coach
I am confident that with my assistance, students can find and be their best selves. My dedication is to ensuring my students "get it" and not just by the sharing of knowledge to get there, but motivation, memory and other similar skills that my many years of experience have taught me are effective. Everyone needs help understanding concepts and theories from time to time. Sometimes just having another person like me explain it differently, and in understandable language can make it all click...
I am confident that with my assistance, students can find and be their best selves. My dedication is to ensuring my students "get it" and not just by the sharing of knowledge to get there, but motivation, memory and other similar skills that my many years of experience have taught me are effective. Everyone needs help understanding concepts and theories from time to time. Sometimes just having another person like me explain it differently, and in understandable language can make it all click for the student.
I tutor students, individually or in groups in my tutoring office near the Brea Mall in Brea, or in any other mutually agreed convenient location, including your school's library or campus, with sufficient advance notice.
I was a college History major which instilled in me, my collegiate love of research and writing. I have been an attorney for years now, which is one of the few professions in today's world that depend wholly on the written word and demand complete attention to detail. I have excelled in reading, writing, and proofreading. I have previously taught law school courses including legal research and appellate brief writing, and can effectively teach you those skills too. These are relevant and necessary in most every aspect of today's education and business environment, not just the legal or paralegal fields.
I have been an actively practicing attorney for many years, all the while mentoring law students and interns and high school students in their own early exposures to the legal field. I now indulge my love of teaching, by coaching high school Mock Trial--an intense, high pressure course, (every year that runs several months), in litigation skills and case studies and presentation. (Mock Trial is one form of legal debate and encompasses valuable public speaking skills applicable to virtually any profession too.) I am proud to say my fellow attorney coaches and I have led our team of 25 students to the county wide playoffs several years in a row, and in an organized pre-competition event involving more than 20 schools, have taken the #1 place trophy 2 years in a row. Usually the cases are criminal but my vast working experience in civil law allows me to provide you tutoring in a wide variety of legal subjects in addition to the emphasis on English (reading, writing, proofreading and public speaking) that I also offer.
I am available most weekdays, and some weekends or evenings with just a few days notice. I encourage you to give me a call and let me help you reach your educational goals.
Worth Every Minute!!
Lisa is absolutely awesome. I had zero legal education or experience. I came to her silently frustrated and left relieved with a better understanding. By the time I finished all my sessions I felt that I would have little to no trouble at all being able to finish what she taught me on my own. Absolutely Fantastic!!!Jaime, 3 lessons with LisaTutor responded:
Thank you Jaime. I am so glad that what you got out of it was not just help with THAT piece of homework, but a better understanding of what you need to know, that you can take with you in the future! Best of wishes.
Fantastic Tutor - 5 Stars!
I can’t speak highly enough of my experience with Lisa. I came to her frustrated after trying couple of other tutors with no hope that I could understand the concept of business law. I haven’t taken any law classes before, besides English is not my first language, yet Lisa did a tremendous job on helping me how to understand the law cases, analyze them and address them properly. There were times when I felt totally lost, but she would amazingly direct me on how to think and deal with all the information I have. I highly recommend Lisa to anyone who seeks understanding and help in law field.Mirna, 5 lessons with Lisa

Lisa was very easy to work with, very professional and knowledgable. After reviewing and revising my own paper for the 10th time (yeh, that many times), I pretty much felt brain dead and need help. Lisa reviewed my paper, provided her recommdations. After working with her, I felt very confident and comfortable submitting my papers. I will definitely recommend her service to anyone who needs professional writing assistance.Angel, 1 lesson with Lisa
