About Christopher

Ah, the verbal prompt to describe myself. The bane of my existence! Truly, the world would be much better off without such things, but then the Internet would be a very, very different place. (Though, as Avenue Q reminds us, not all that different.)

But you are not here to listen to my prattling on about my dislike of describing myself. You’re here for what I can provide you in the way of intellectual enlightenment! Or at least what help I can provide you in achieving it. I am, if you have not already caught on, something of a verbal wonk: My vocabulary has on at least one occasion been referred to as Churchillian, though I am rather more modest about its expanses. I possess a B.A. in history, J.D., and Kansas bar license, freeing me to pontificate on matters relating to law and history. I am most well-versed in classical, military, legal, and diplomatic history, though I am well-rounded enough to be conversant in most historical disciplines. Before becoming a history major, I was a political science major, and remain well-read in most political matters.

Prior to going to law school, I tutored at an adult education program preparing adult students to take their GED exam in all subjects.

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.

Classics

The capstone of my undergraduate education was the writing of a thirty-page paper upon the military history of the Peloponnesian War. During my Legal History course in law school, I wrote a paper of similar length on the Ancient Greek law of war. I have further thoroughly dog-eared my copies of the Complete Thucydides, Complete Xenophon, and Complete Arrian, as well as my copies of Plutarch's Lives, in the course of writing the aforementioned papers.

Criminal Justice

I am in possession of a J.D. from an ABA-accredited law school and have spent approximately two years law clerking, drafting a large number of documents to be filed in the courts. This includes having to have sat through courses in criminal law, criminal procedure, and evidence. As well, during my undergraduate education, I took an introductory criminal law course, covering the subject matter in broad strokes.

Tax Preparation

I am in possession of a J.D. and, during my three years of law school, I took three semesters' worth of tax classes, including the introductory course on the taxation of individual income. I furthermore do my taxes by hand, providing first-hand application of my classroom learning.
