About Gary

As I begin to wind down my law practice of more than 30 years, I have decided to pursue other activities. About 1 year ago, I became certified as a volunteer tutor in Lake County, Illinois. Since then, I have worked as a math tutor in a classroom and as a reading tutor for an adult who suffered a stroke.

During my years as a student at Cornell University and University of Chicago, I learned the joy, as well as the value, of education. In my tutoring, I similarly try to convey the joy, as well as the value, of learning to my students. As an attorney, I was sensitive to the complexity of legal issues, and explaining those issues in as simple a manner as possible to achieve “client education” I believe was one of my best qualities as a lawyer. Every student is unique, and I try to customize my tutoring to the particular needs of the student.


I am currently a reading tutor for an adult who suffered a stroke. As an attorney, I honed my reading and writing skills for over 30 years; I look forward to teaching these skills to students.

I have been a practicing attorney for more than 30 years, My performance on standardized tests (including the LSAT) helped me to be accepted for admission by Cornell University and University of Chicago Law School.



I majored in Political Science at Cornell University, and I took many Political Science and History classes in college. I continue to read about Political Science and History topics, which are 2 of my principal areas of interest today.

I charge $60 per hour for both in-person and on-line tutoring. I offer a 30 minute free consultation session before the first lesson. I also offer lesson packages at a discount. I enjoy working with people of all ages and backgrounds.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your learning objectives.

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.

Political Science

I majored in Political Science at Cornell University. I graduated with a B.A. degree Cum Laude, writing my senior thesis on issues relating to voter turnout. Since college, I have maintained a strong interest in Political Science issues. Currently, I look at 6 websites every day, reading various articles concerning topics in this year's election.

Gary has been tutoring me for a few weeks now and he is simply the best. I felt so lost, unorganized in thought and overall hopeless with my LSAT before I met Gary. You could not ask for a better teacher/ attorney. My total role model.
