About John

I'm an experienced attorney that has worked in both small and large law firms as well as with a non-profit legal aid organization. I have successfully passed 3 states bar examinations. My undergraduate work was in political science with additional emphasis on philosophy and economics. I am an avid reader of American History and regularly keep up on historical and political events. I am able to provide assistance on any of these subjects.

In tutoring, I focus on providing practical examples and background information that help make the subject matter come to life.

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 have practiced law for more than 15 years. I have successfully passed the Bar Exams of the states of Illinois, Florida, and California. The Bar Exams of each of those 3 states included the Multistate Bar Exam ("MBE") as part of their examinations. The MBE is used by the vast majority of states. I am familiar with the current format of the California Bar after having recently passed that exam.

Public Speaking

I am a licensed attorney that has argued many cases in court. I also have a law degree as well as a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science. In earning those degrees, I took numerous classes either focusing directly on public speaking or requiring public speaking. I also have recently made several speeches to the general public on legal topics.
