About Loretta

I have been an attorney for 27 years. Like many people, I am unemployed and am looking to earn extra money while looking for work. I can tutor on subjects from reading and writing to math and computer programs. I have trained people unfamiliar with Excel and they were able to use the program on a beginner level within a few minutes. I helped a family member with school work. She graduated grade school as valedictorian and was in the top 3 students in her high school graduating class. She went on to attend Notre Dame University on scholarship.

If a student is having problems with algebra, I have them write out their solution in full. It helps me identify where their weakness lies and allows me to craft a solution tailored to the student's needs. I can teach your child how to write effective essay answers. I can also help rehearse your child to present an exceptional oral presentation to the class.

I have a copy of the background check the Illinois Education Foundation ran on me September 2011 and can provide you with a copy.

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 took the Illinois bar exam in 1984. At the time I took the bar exam, 1984 had the lowest passing rate in the history of the bar exam. I passed the exam on the first try. Some of my classmates from law school did not pass the first time. They lost a lot of points on the essay section because they addressed one of the two issues raised in the question. One was a red herring and the other was a dispositive issue. You need to identify the red herring and why it does not matter to the disposition of the question.
