About Dan

Exceptionally qualified tutor, especially for LSAT, SAT, writing skills, analytical skills, public speaking, interviewing, and admissions essays. I have extensive teaching experience, at Northeastern University and Harvard Law School. I was voted Teacher of the Year in 2007 by the student body at Northeastern Law School. I am a published author and have a lengthy record as a top-notch scholar. Aside from teaching and scholarship, I was an accomplished courtroom litigator, with considerable experience in capital punishment (I was lead counsel that led to the ending of capital punishment in New York). My communication skills are exemplary, which facilitates my ability to create a dynamic learning environment for students with a variety of learning styles.

I am currently a psychotherapist, specializing in family counseling. I would very much welcome the opportunity to tutor you or your son or daughter as a supplement to my psychotherapy practice.

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 am a Harvard Law graduate and a former professor of law at Northeastern University School of Law and Harvard Law School. I've passed the bar examination twice--in New York and California.

Career Development

I am a former law professor and long-time courtroom lawyer. I am now a psychotherapist and wellness coach. Included in my practice is the coaching of individuals in pursuing career goals. I have experience in crafting effective resumes and improving interviewing skills. I can also help identify skills and interests and matching them up to viable careers.

LSAT

I scored in the 99th percentile on the LSAT.

Public Speaking

I am an experienced courtroom lawyer who has advocated several high-profile cases (including the case that ended capital punishment in New York). I have delivered many speeches worldwide in connection with my work on high-profile cases. I have trained lawyers in forensic advocacy for many years. I am also a former professor of law at Northeastern and Harvard. I have spent my entire career engaging in public speaking.

Writing

I'm a published author, including a critically acclaimed book and many scholarly articles and essays. I have coached many people in writing and have extensive editing experience.

Smart, Patient, and Easy-going

Dan worked with me on Logic Games for the LSAT. I was shown ways of approaching questions I may not have considered without him and made more progress in two hours with his help than with eight on my own.
