About Stephen

As a retired judge I am actively involved with teaching at several local universities. I began teaching continuing education courses to my fellow judges and attorneys. Then I fell in love with teaching graduate and undergraduate students. Over the last eight years I taught criminology, business and criminal law, criminal justice, political science, history and social sciences.

In addition to my career as a County Court and acting District Court Trial Judge, I served in many other offices and positions. I served as a State Senator, State Representative, Criminal Prosecutor, Legal and Civil Advisor, Private Attorney and Political Scientist. As a teacher my fields keeps expanding as does my mutual love of learning.

Many university students do not take advantage of tutoring and that is where they fail. I am excited that you want to take advantage of tutoring and advance in your academic career.

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 teach American and World History at the undergraduate university level.

I was a double major summa cum laude with my Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science. My specialty was in American and Western History.

My love of history led me to serve as an officer and board member on historical and museum boards including the Aurora History Museum.

Criminal Justice

As a retired state court trial judge and criminal prosecutor I have over thirty years of experience in criminal justice as well as business, civil, and criminal law. I have eight years of teaching experience at the university undergraduate and graduate levels in business law, criminal justice, criminal law, criminology, history, political science and sociology. As a former state legislator and political scientist, I am experienced at communication, public policy, and public speaking.

Government & Politics

I've used that political science degree as an active political scientist.

I have over 20 years in public and political life both as an elected official and as a trainer of political candidates. With real life experience in the legislative branch my knowledge of the legislative process is invaluable in understanding the practice as well as the theory of representational democracy or a republic as is practiced and devised in the United States of America.

As a retired state court trial judge I mentored new judges on how the judicial branch operated within the governmental structure and perspective. As a college professor I include teach politics and government at the undergraduate university level.

Having experience in serving in all three branches of our government and teaching government and politics I enjoy sharing my love of both.

Law

As a retired state court trial judge and criminal prosecutor I have over thirty years of experience in criminal justice as well as business, civil, and criminal law.

I teach at the university undergraduate and graduate levels in business law, criminal justice, criminal law, criminology, history, political science and sociology.

As a former State Senator and State Representative I developed, created and guided the passage of legislation into law. I am one of the few experienced in law from the perspective of all three branches of government, judicial, legislative and executive.

Political Science

As a retired state court trial judge and criminal prosecutor, I have over thirty years of experience in criminal justice as well as business, civil and criminal law. I have eight years of teaching experience at the university undergraduate and graduate levels in Business Law, Criminal Justice, Criminal Law, Criminology, History, Political Science and Sociology. As a former State Legislator and Political Scientist, I am experienced at Communication, Public Policy and Public Speaking.

Public Speaking

I have over 20 years in public and political life both as an elected official and as a trainer of political candidates. I train them in how to devise, develop and present speeches and arguments to a wide array of the public at local, state and national audiences.

As a trial and appellate attorney with over 30 years of experience in arguing cases before juries, judges and judicial appellate panels, including the state supreme court, I now also mentor other attorneys on how to improve their public speaking and presentation skills.

As a retired state court trial judge I mentored new judges on how to present themselves in their public court rulings and decisions.

As a college professor I include public speaking and presentations in every one of my courses. That is because if you cannot communicate what you know or learn you will never succeed at any business enterprise or opportunity.

Finally, I regularly judge moot court arguments and public speaking skills by high school, college and law school teams throughout the state.

There are simple, tried and true best practices for public speaking for all of these different public speaking situations that are clearly transferable for any public speaking engagement or opportunity.
