About Neal


Bio

I tailor lesson plans to the topic being taught as well as the student's preferred learning style. Multimedia is often effective in reinforcing materials covered orally and in writing.

I have been tutoring students since high school. I frequently work with students on their research and writing skills at a law school.

For the last ten years I have taught a wide variety of law school courses. After law school, I practiced real estate law and did criminal defense work. Later, I worked for a federal agency in Washington, D.C. In 2006, I completed my master's degree in library and information science and began working at a law school in Minnesota. I began by co-teaching the legal research and writing program. Over the past decade, I have helped teach doctrinal courses, skills courses, and clinical courses including Administrative Law, Criminal Law, Disaster Law, Veterans Law, Advanced Legal Research, and Internet Legal Research.
