I graduated from the University of Florida with honors and a dual B.A. in political science and economics. I went on to law school at Georgetown Law obtaining my J.D. sum cum laude. I practiced law for a few years in D.C. before transitioning to teaching. I loved working with students and have now accumulated 20 years of experience teaching in higher education and grades K-12.
With students running the gamut from pre-K through college, I have a unique chance to see what works and what doesn't for becoming a strong learner throughout your education. I focus on helping students not only master content but develop the learning skills that will help them succeed in all levels of school and work. These skills include: identifying useful note-taking techniques, the efficient organization of study material, finding the instructional material that allows you to understand concepts, and developing a work schedule that allows you to satisfy your school requirements without being overwhelmed. With over 20 years of experience helping students flourish, I've earned a solid reputation for enabling students to find their way in school and learn to manage their own learning.

I have worked with younger students to develop foundational skills, especially those who struggle or have missed steps in their education. I also have experience with almost all levels of math and science at the middle and high school levels. I develop lesson plans that focus on the skills students need to

Botany

I completed the University of Florida Master Gardener 90 hour training class in 2003. I have since taken 9 biology and botany courses through the college, as well as spending over 150 hours in the plant clinic assisting public clients. I love plants and enjoy sharing that love with others.

Test Preparation

Bar Exam

Bar Exam

I can help law students prepare for the multi-state exam, the Florida exam (including the essay), the D.C. exam, and the professional responsibility exam. I was admitted to the D.C. bar 20 years ago and I took the Florida bar exam 12 years ago. I have taught legal research and writing at five different law schools and colleges with all courses including a section on writing for the bar essay. I have taught property, torts, contracts, constitutional law, civil procedure, trust and estates, commercial transactions, remedies, and ethics at Florida law schools and in online college-level courses; I continue to work with individual students to help them master these subjects to pass the bar exam. I make the material interesting with memorable (but pertinent) examples to help manage the sheer magnitude of information you need at your command for this exam.

Extremely engaging

My son loves working with Christal. She is very engaging, and when he's being shy or isn't coming up with ideas right away, she knows the right probing questions to help him think of an answer. You can tell she has a lot of experience working with children on their writing. We feel very fortunate to have found her on Wyzant.

Amazing

After my first tutoring session with Christal I feel much more confident on the strength of my graduate school scholarship essay. Looking forward to more tutoring.
