University of Delaware (political science)
Duke University (J.D.)
In college I was an honor's student (elected member of Phi Beta Kappa), an undergraduate teacher's assistant and a part time tutor. I chose to major in Political Science over English and History only late in my college career as at that point I had adequate credits to have chosen any of the three. After college, my career in law made me proficient at English composition and the persuasive use of language. I have remained an avid reader, particularly of history. When not reading history, I prefer fiction, typically southern literature.
Effective writing, whether done to persuade, entertain or explain, is a skill that is often overlooked, but one which can be acquired. My love for the subject matter and previous experience make me an effective teacher. Although I do love to read and write, I also love the outdoors and almost any sport (I could be labeled an avid cyclist, logging over 7000 miles on the road per year). I believe that the variety of my interests increases my relevance to youths of any age, but particularly to teenagers.
I studied English literature and composition extensively in college. Although I have not tutored for compensation since college, throughout my career I have mentored and assisted younger attorneys on writing skills.
I love the study of History and believe that this love for the subject matter can be infectious to young students.

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.
