I graduated law school in 1986, with honors (12th in my graduating class of 151). My Case Comment was published in the New England Law Review. During law school, I taught individuals and small groups how to use Westlaw computerized legal research. After law school, I practiced law in a general practice law firm, preparing a variety of legal documents and briefs, in many different areas of Law. For the past 23+ years I worked for judges of the federal district court in Boston, first as a deputy clerk/case manager, and later, as a Pro Se Staff Attorney. The Staff Attorney position involved drafting hundreds of recommendations and proposed Memorandum and Orders for the judges' review, with respect to prisoner lawsuits and habeas petitions, as well as non-prisoner lawsuits file by indigent persons. Primarily, the cases involved alleged civil rights violations.
While working full time in federal court, I also taught two evening classes at Boston University (Metropolitan College). The classes, entitled "Writing and Communicating in a Legal Environment," were aimed at assisting paralegals in developing writing skills for their jobs. Among other things, I encouraged my students to master the rules of grammar, ask questions for clarification, and think outside the box. I stressed the need for straightforward sentence structure, preparing an organizational chart or outline when necessary before writing, and, perhaps most importantly, editing the draft essay.
I recently retired from my federal employment, and now I am currently looking for a challenging way to use my writing and teaching skills and fill up my free time.

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.
