University of Florida (Political Science)
Nova Southeastern University (J.D.)
Greetings prospective students and parents,
My name is Mitchell and I would love to offer my services to you. I am an attorney licensed to practice in Florida and currently studying for the North Carolina Bar Exam. During my undergraduate education I majored in political science while also specializing in history and sociology. Through the years of my secondary education, I have developed a great deal of respect for the values that promote success.
I find that confidence in the classroom goes a long way for my students. Some students don’t believe that they can succeed, and that is completely separate matter from a lack of understanding or lack of knowledge. Building that confidence is essential and helps students in many ways outside the classroom as well. It has been my experience that school aged children make a better connection with a younger tutor. I usually like to make a tutoring session one of fun and comfort, allowing the student to progress at his/her own pace. Enjoying the process is key to transforming learning from a laborious task to a pleasant experience. More importantly, it also helps build confidence.
Personally I enjoy playing soccer, trail running, and was on the University of Florida Bowling Team. I have worked on several statewide political campaigns and was also lucky enough to be chosen as a student ambassador to Australia and New Zealand. In law school I was a moot court champion and heavily involved with my school’s intellectual property law society. I truly enjoy tutoring as I started in high school for the National Honor Society, and over the years have worked extensively tutoring family members, friends, and neighbors. I also had the pleasure of assisting a 4th grade teacher for a semester at Welleby Elementary School in Sunrise, Fl. Greetings prospective students and parents,

Mitchell helped me study for my American history exam. I went into the tutoring session knowing literally nothing and he helped me so much! I got a 91% on my exam! He is very easy to reach and was able to organize all my thoughts and notes. Additionally, he prepared me for my exam by helping me realize what I already knew. I would highly recommend him. I am using him again to help me prepare for my final exam.
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.
American History is a subject that I have been passionate about starting at a young age. I passed the AP U.S. History Exam and minored in history at the University of Florida. American History is also important in understanding the trajectory of U.S. Constitutional jurisprudence that I studied extensively in law school.
I had the opportunity to spend a semester with a 4th grade teacher at Welleby Elementary in Sunrise, Fl. During this time I tutored specific students with certain weaknesses in an intimate setting, as well as assisted in teaching lessons on a wide variety of subjects. Privately I have tutored multiple elementary school students with stellar results. I truly enjoy the age group as it is easy to structure lessons around themes and activities that excite the student. That is my game plan when it comes to teaching younger children, FUN. I always request certain facts about the child before tutoring such as what they find interesting and incorporate them into unique lessons built with the student in mind. Learning needs to be enjoyable.
Government and Politics have always been my true passion. I have a law degree and a degree in political science with a minor in history. I also had the unique experience of working on several statewide and local political campaigns. I primarily read publications that discuss and reflect the current political situation, which is imperative as politics is constantly changing. I also have studied the U.S. Constitution extensively and feel very comfortable explaining its complexity in a way that's easy to understand.
Starting in high school, I was the president of the debate club for three years giving me a great start at sharpening my speaking skills. During my years at the University of Florida, I took part in countless presentations including subjects such as history, politics and sociology. However, it was working for statewide political campaigns that truly allowed my skills to flourish. During my time on campaigns, I was responsible for addressing political events and gatherings and even courting elected officials. Upon entering law school I was able to leverage my speaking skills into joining our Moot Court Society and was a champion of an upper-class tournament. Speaking is about confidence. Confidence is about preparation. I will make sure my students are prepared and have the confidence to address any situation with the grace and ability necessary.
