After practicing law for almost 30 years, I changed careers. I chose teaching social studies because my BA is in history. I am interested in economics and government, as well as law, and teaching has been a lifelong passion. I've taught AP economics and AP government as well as world history and geography. My background includes government, public policy and science, having been an environmental regulatory lawyer and earning a Masters in Public Administration, studying statistics and finance as well as administrative law and public administration. As a lawyer, I enjoyed most working with younger lawyers and helping them become better researchers and writers. I've taught both high school and middle school.
Assisting law students and helping them prepare for the bar exam and with legal research and writing is therefore something I have been doing for young colleagues for decades.
A common thread in my experience is working with students one-on-one or in small groups. Therefore, tutoring comes naturally to me. The analytical skills I acquired as a lawyer allow me to teach SAT, ACT, LSAT, GRE, GMAT test prep, in addition to law, history and economics, . essentially anything that requires critical thinking. This variety of subjects is a strength because it never gets boring and I am able to help more students.
I never go into a lesson without being prepared. In economics and government, I have prepared detailed study guides to prepare myself and to assist students. In the first half-hour, or before lessons begin via email or phone, I assess each student's individual needs. Each student learns differently, which is why I reject one size fits all solutions. Having identified the concerns, I tailor tutoring sessions to the individual. For example, many students are visual or kinetic learners, so the use of graphs and other visual aids is especially useful to get to the solution, and to build on basic concepts. I do a lot of work outside sessions on my own time to make sure every session is productive. If I

Larry is very knowledgeable about the law. He has provided review notes prepared by him that are exactly on point. I truly appreciate his input. Encoraging as well.Linda, 8 lessons with Larry
good on details that I cannot see
My case briefs were too generalized and sometimes did not concentrate on the main points, even though they were or may have been on the fringe of doing so. Larry helped me to restructure the case briefs and restructure my approach to them, while better understanding how to more effectively analyze them as well as the case citations (which i still need a lot of help with) etc.Anthony, 19 lessons with Larry
