About Wyndell

Hello, my name is Wyndell. I am a graduate of the University of Southern California, class of 1983, magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. I went on to graduate from Harvard Law School, class of 1986. I specialize in tutoring Math, English, Science, Law and Test Prep skills.

I have always had a great passion and interest in learning, and I look forward to passing that on to others. A few years ago, I took a sabbatical from my law practice to pursue other opportunities. It was during this period that I had the opportunity to be a substitute teacher for about two years, at which time I taught English, Math, Science, and History to grade school students. I was told by my students that a gift for teaching, and they didn't want me to leave. I am very proud of this fact.

My tutoring style is largely Socratic in nature. That is, I try to engage the student in active question-and-answer periods within the context of our lessons to insure the depth and breadth of my students' understanding of a particular topic.

As for specific methods, I believe it is important first and foremost to have a clear understanding of a student's objectives. Some students wish to be "A" students, but simply lack the methodology to consistently get the "A" grade. In that instance, I would work with the student to help develop an effective methodology that will work for them (irrespective of the subject-matter) in order to achieve their goals--that is, to become a straight "A" student. Other students may wish to raise their grade point average by a letter grade or more. In that case, I would work with them to try to ascertain why the student is falling short of their objectives, and help them to address those specific issues within the context of the lessons we would undertake. In short, I would be flexible to adopt a tutoring approach that I believe best suits the circumstances. My ultimate goal is to get the most out of my students so that they will be equipped at the end of our sessions to get the most out of themselves--to achieve their dreams.

I offer a free initial consultation. However, I do request that you give me at least 12-hour notice prior to canceling a session. If you have any questions, or wish to schedule a session, please contact me.

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.

American History

I have been a student of history all of my life. I have extensive knowledge and expertise with respect to the American Revolution and the War of 1812. But I would say that it is with respect to the American Civil War that my knowledge is most extensive. I have spent the last ten years studying the Civil War, the cause, the major participants, and the events leading up to it.

Additionally, I am a presidential historian with fairly extensive knowledge of the 43 individuals that occupied the office, and the various political campaigns each of them used to achieve the U.S Presidency.

If you share my love of American history, and wish to improve your knowledge in this area, hire me. I'm here to help you.

Criminal Justice

I am a graduate of University of Southern California, magna cum laude, class of 1983, and a graduate of Harvard Law School, class of 1986. I practiced law in Los Angeles for 18 years during which time I regularly counseled my clients in the area of criminal law. On occasion, I would make court appearances. Moreover, I am intimately familiar with the way the federal and state criminal justice system works.

Elementary Math

Math is (and always has been) my strongest subject. Prior to attending USC, I was a graduate of the Bronx High School of Science, class of 1979, which at the time was one of the most prestigious public high schools in America. Bronx Science stressed the importance of both math and the sciences. I did very well at Bronx Science, which facilitated my admission into the University of Southern California in 1979. I love math, and I believe I can help you to love math as well.

Elementary Science

I have always had a deep and abiding love of the sciences. Prior to attending USC, I was a graduate of the Bronx High School of Science, class of 1979, which at the time was one of the most prestigious public high schools in America. Bronx Science stressed the importance of both math and the sciences. I did very well at Bronx Science, which facilitated my admission into the University of Southern California in 1979.

English

As a graduate of Harvard Law School, I have developed a mastery of the English language. It is an essential tool in a lawyer's "wheelhouse". Moreover, I have extensive experience teaching English to grade school students during my two-year stint as a substitute teacher.

If you wish to improve your English skills, please contact me. I would be happy to assist you.

Government & Politics

In addition to graduating Harvard Law School, I studied political science at U.S.C. prior to formally declaring Economics as my major. I, therefore, feel I bring a lot of relevant experience to the table, and hope to get an opportunity to work with you.

Law

As a graduate of Harvard Law School, class of 1986, with 18 years experience practicing law in Los Angeles, California, I have extensive knowledge and experience in this area.

SAT Reading

I have always excelled at reading. I believe that the critical reading skills that are required to achieve a “high score” on the SAT exam may be developed with practice and a sound methodology. Of course, having a good memory is important, but I believe it is also important to have a “tried and proven” method for success.

I can help you develop an effective method for taking the reading portion of the SAT exam--- one that will maximize your chances of obtaining a high score.

SAT Writing

I have always excelled at writing. I believe that the skills required to achieve a “high score” on the SAT exam may be developed with practice, a good vocabulary, and a sound understanding of English grammar. These are the areas we will primarily focus on in order to help you prepare for this portion of the SAT exam. If you work with me, I am confident that I can help you develop an effective method for taking the writing portion of the SAT exam--- one that will maximize your chances of achieving a high score.

Social Studies

I am a graduate of USC, class of 1983, and Harvard Law School, class of 1986. My undergraduate degree was in Economics----- a liberal arts degree. My GPA at USC was 3.85/4.0. As such, I took a number of liberal arts courses, including several courses in History, Economics and Political Science (never achieving less than an A-). I believe social studies is the integration of these various disciplines in an effective way such that we may take lessons from all of them and apply these lessons in our daily lives and professional endeavors.

Study Skills

I am a graduate of USC, class of 1983, and Harvard Law School, class of 1986. My undergraduate degree was in Economics----- a liberal arts degree. My GPA at USC was 3.85/4.0. As such, I know how to effectively prepare and take tests of all sorts. I also studied and passed the California Bar exam on my first attempt in 1986.

Writing

Effective writing is probably one of the most important skills one can have in this new digital age. I say this because so much of our communication comes in the form of emails, blogs, social media posts and other forms of digital media. As such, it is vital that students develop (at a very early age) the ability to effectively express their thoughts in written form. I developed my writing skills both in college and law school, and I continue to strive to improve my writing every day. I am of the opinion that one can never achieve a state of perfection when it comes to writing. The best one can do is to constantly strive for improvement. If you share my view, and seek to improve your writing skills, hire me. I’m here to help you.
