I am an established, proven, and experienced tutor with references. I earned my law degree (JD) and Master's in Public Health (MPH) from Emory University in Atlanta, where I was a member of the law review, and competed in moot court competitions. At Emory, I also served as the 3L instructor to a 1L section in a required course focused on legal research and writing. Professionally, I am a litigation attorney with a background in health law and healthcare policy.

My strengths as a tutor include an emphasis on critical thinking and analysis. I work with my students on analyzing and "breaking-down" information and data to determine the substantive material.

This approach is particularly helpful in preparing students for standardized tests, LSAT preparation, and Bar Review.

I am available to tutor all social sciences, with particular skill and experience in subjects such as law, history, government, comparative government, and essay assignments. In addition, I tutor for the LSAT, GMAT, and the Florida Bar Exam.

I have excellent references. I form a strong bond with my students, and am entirely devoted to their success and achievement.

I am an attorney and Investigator for the State of Florida-employed specifically with Capital Collateral Regional Counsel-South. We deal exclusively with capital cases/death sentences. However, much of the job involves forensics, behavioral science, and procedure. I am well versed in Florida's criminal justice system. I have practiced law in criminal court, and now work for the CCRC, which is strictly appellate counsel.

I graduated from Emory Law School and Emory School of Public Health with a JD/MPH. As a first year (1L), I was selected as Finalist for the School's Oral Argument and Brief competition. Thereafter, I was selected to write for the Law Review, and my Comment, focusing on economic sanctions imposed on Iraq, was published and was a Finalist for "Best Comment." As a 3L, I was a Dean's Fellow and instructed 1L students on legal research and writing. As a litigation attorney, my practice is legal writing and hearings in court. I have drafted successful appeals to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, and all levels of Florida's State Appellate Courts. My practice consists of heavy motion practice, with frequent memoranda of law required.

From 1999 to 2000, I served as a student instructor for a first year research/writing/study skills course with 14 first year law students at Emory University School of Law. I was tasked with teaching the students the study and time management skills necessary to succeed in law school, such as study/preparation, exams, and writing assignments with time limits. All of the 14 students earned high marks in the course, and noted how much my planning and organization had helped them develop their own study habits. My tutoring sessions and lesson plans are based on organization, time management, and preparation for short or long-term exams or assignments. Furthermore, my tutor feedback emphasized my ability to do impart these skills successfully to my students. I assist students in short term and long-term study sessions, so they are able to adapt to both requirements as the coursework requires.
