About Kelsey

I am a lawyer currently practicing criminal law in San Diego. I earned a B.A. in English from UCLA Honors College and a J.D. from UC Davis. I would love to help spread my love of English and learning to students! I was a legal writing tutor at UC Davis and have experience helping students with both study skills as well as substantive areas. I love tutoring because I enjoy helping others improve their work.

I graduated from UCLA Honors with a B.A. in English and a minor in anthropology. I took several advanced English courses as well as edited the UCLA student newspaper. Once in law school, I was selected to be a legal research and writing tutor for first-year law students.

I am available any weekday in the evenings and on the weekends! Please contact me if you have any questions, want to know more about me, or want to schedule a lesson!

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 went to UC Davis for law school and was in the top 25% of my class. I took the bar in July 2015 and passed the first time. I completed about 99% of the summer bar preparation course and also took bar preparation courses at UC Davis. I was a legal writing and research tutor at UC Davis as well.

English

I graduated from UCLA Honors with a B.A. in English.

Grammar

I worked as a copy editor for the UCLA newspaper. This experience required me to have a solid foundation of the English language, especially grammar, as I was closely editing newspaper articles. I received a J.D. from UC Davis Law in 2015 where I worked as a legal writing and research tutor. This position required me to meet with students individually, carefully assess the quality of their written work including their grammar and analysis, and provide feedback on how to improve their papers.

Public Speaking

I currently practice criminal law and engage in public speaking in courtrooms daily. I myself once struggled with public speaking so I will be able to identify with students' struggles and fears. I am patient and will be able to work closely with students to improve their public speaking skills.

Study Skills

I graduated from UCLA Honors College, where the rigorous school schedule required me to refine and hone my study habits. I further perfected these study habits while at law school at UC Davis and studying 10 hours a day for the bar exam. I was a legal writing and research tutor in law school, a job that required that I help first year law students improve their study skills.

Writing

I received a B.A. in English from UCLA Honors college and a J.D. from UC Davis Law. I was a legal writing and research tutor while at UC Davis Law. I currently practice criminal law.
