About Jay

Hello. I'm a former trial attorney who started practicing in 1997. I've appeared in state and federal courts, in arbitrations and in mediations. I began tutoring other students while in law school and I continued to enjoy teaching since I graduated. I've passed three state bar exams on my first try. I can help you study more efficiently and prepare for your classes and exams for better results.

I am also a professional writer. Regardless of the subject matter at issue, I can help you write effectively and persuasively. Whether you're writing a high school research paper, a college essay or a professional presentation, I can improve your writing and give you the self-confidence you need to take control of your writing in the future.

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've passed three bar exams (California 1996, Colorado 2007 and Nevada 2011) on my first try. I understand how to analyze and answer the multiple choice questions asked on the MBE, and during law school and afterwards I consistently scored high on multiple choice exams. While in law school, and while tutoring junior associates over the years, I've learned how to explain legal concepts in a straight-forward manner that makes them easier to understand. I also understand how to take the bar exam, and how to avoid the pitfalls that can arise during the exam.

Law

I have been researching and writing legal briefs, motions and memoranda for more than 20 years. More importantly, I am a very successful writer as my motions win far more often than they lose and I am asked to ghost-write by many of my colleagues. My success is due in large part to my substantive knowledge of the law and the fact that I keep up to date with changes in the law.

Writing

I have been writing legal briefs, motions and memoranda for more than 20 years. More importantly, I am a very successful writer as my motions win far more often than they lose and I am asked to ghost-write by many of my colleagues. I was asked to tutor legal writing while in law school and I also served as an editor on the Law Review. I successfully helped many junior associates improve their writing when I worked as a partner in a law firm and I have informally tutored my friends' children with their junior high school and high school writing assignments.
