About Michael

For more than fifteen years, I practiced law in New York City. Perhaps the most important role I played for my clients was that of an advisor, educating them how the law applied to particular factual situations.
Teaching clients about the law for so long helped me become an effective instructor.

Beginning in 2016, I began teaching at Fresno State University. I am currently teaching Evidence as well as Business Law. I have found that the teaching skills I learned as an attorney have translated well to the classroom.

In the classroom, and in tutoring, I believe the best way to present material is one which allows students to think though a problem with my assistance, and therefore better understand the solution. In my opinion this is much better than me simply telling students the answer.

If this approach appeals to you, and you think you could benefit from working through problems to understand the solution, with my assistance, please feel free to contact me. I would very much like to assist any student who feels like working together would be beneficial.

Thank you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bar Exam

I am an attorney admitted in New Jersey and New York. I, thankfully, passed the Bar Exam in each state on the first attempt. I practiced law for more than fifteen years, and am now teaching Business Law as well as Evidence as a Part-Time Lecturer at Fresno State University.

Law

I received a Juris Doctor from New York University School of Law in 1998, and am admitted to the Bar in the States of New York and New Jersey. I practiced law in New York City for approximately seventeen years, six of them as a solo practitioner.

I am currently a Part-Time Lecturer at Fresno State University, teaching Evidence as well as Business Law.

Law has interested and many times fascinated me over the years. I would very much appreciate the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with those who could benefit from it.

Political Science

I have a law degree from New York University, as well as an undergraduate degree in political science from the University of California at Davis. My practice as an attorney allowed me to see how government, at least the judicial branch in New York State, really functions.

I began teaching at Fresno State University just last semester, teaching one class of business law. Thirty-four students took part in evaluating me and in response to the prompt "Overall, I rate this instructor as an excellent teacher", twenty-one students rated me at five, and eight rated me at four, on a scale from one to five.

Incredible, patient and thorough

Great examples and study strategies, and so patient. Also organized and best of all funny, which helps when the subject is contract law. I really feel confident after his lessons.
