About Michael


Bio

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. Taking abstract legal concepts, and breaking them down into terms understandable to a layperson was critical to my practice. In addition, explaining complicated factual situations to judges in court, under the pressures of oral arguments, allowed me to further develop my skills in...

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. Taking abstract legal concepts, and breaking them down into terms understandable to a layperson was critical to my practice. In addition, explaining complicated factual situations to judges in court, under the pressures of oral arguments, allowed me to further develop my skills in communicating difficult concepts more simply.

I believe these skills have helped me become an effective instructor.

In 2016, I began teaching at Fresno State University. I am currently teaching Evidence as well as Business Law and I have taught Criminal Law in the past. 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 through a problem with my assistance, determine the answer themselves and therefore better understand that answer. In my opinion this is much better than me simply telling students the answer. I also firmly believe that understanding the underlying concepts makes the specifics much easier. I work to be very patient, and not move on to the next topic until the first one is fully understood.

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.

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.

Michael is knowledgeable and patient. He helped me understand concepts for which I struggled. He reframes material in a way to ease the learning process. He helps me talk through topics to ensure I am on the right track.

Amazing tutor!

Michael Y. has helped me with my legal research class. So far, he has helped me three times and each time it is a great experience. He is an easy guy to talk to and I get a clear understanding of what he is teaching me. I have also gained knowledge and confidence in my class thanks to him. I will continue to go to him for help. I do recommend him to anyone studying law.
