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.

Bible Studies

I am currently a graduate student in the Religious Studies Department of UNC-Charlotte. My area of concentration is Christianity and Mediterranean Religions in Early and Late Antiquity. I have presented papers at numerous professional conferences, both state and national in scope specifically related to topical issues related to the New Testament, in particularly Christian theology and the history of the early Christian church. I have completed 24 graduate hours (of 30) and maintain a 4.0 average.

In addition, I have guest lectured at UNC-Charlotte on God and Time and taught a semester long class at Broad Street United Methodist in Statesville, North Carolina, on reading Augustine's Confessions, a 4th century work which recounts Augustine's struggle to formulate concepts of creation ex nihil, the nature of sin, God's relation to time, the nature of evil and God's goodness, all doctrines taken from both the Old and New Testaments.

College Counseling

I have direct experience with public and private undergraduate, graduate and professional school admissions processes, admissions standards, and curricular expectations at American colleges and universities. I also have direct experience and training with regard to college and professional school testing products, including the ACT, SAT, and GRE,as well as the BAR/BRI bar preparation program and have provided tutoring and test taking counseling in the area of undergraduate admissions tests. Serving as a mentor for my undergraduate institution, I have over the past five years directly advised students with regard to undergraduate course selection and career counseling. I also have specific graduate level training in college level humanities instruction, with particular emphasis on current educational philosophies and trends in higher education and have been trained to be enabled to counsel college students with regard to the college level learning environment. As a former employee with the residence life staff of a national university, I had responsibility to counsel resident students in all aspects of college life and am familiar with all aspects of university based residence programming and residence life. Finally, as a newspaper columnist covering colleges in the Southeast United States, I have become personally acquainted with and have visited most major public and private colleges in North and South Carolina, recently visiting and interacting with admissions representatives at six National Liberal Arts Colleges in Ohio (Oberlin, College of Wooster, Kenyon, Wittenberg and Denison).

Criminal Justice

As a practicing attorney in the private sector, I have represented numerous criminal defendants as well as juvenile offenders in both North Carolina and in the Federal District Court. As a result, I have become familiar with criminal process, bond issues, prisoner's rights, and sentencing. As a public attorney, I prosecute cases in the civil court where children are abused, neglected and/or dependent in civil court, assist the prosecutor in criminal court and co-manage cases involving dependent juvenile offenders.

English

As a legal professional, my stock and trade for the past sixteen years has been my ability to successfully utilize the English language to accomplish the goals set by my clients, who have included county governments and individuals and businesses. My legal work, both oral and written, has lead to considerable success in both state and federal courts, before administrative tribunals, as well as the North Carolina Court of Appeals. This work has enabled me to offer students extensive expertise in gaining rhetorical skills, understanding key vocabulary, and in understanding the mechanics of effective persuasive and expository writing.

Government & Politics

For the past fourteen years, I have worked as an attorney for county government. In the course of this work, I have had extensive experience in law and policy on both the state and federal level, from administrative regulation to statutory and case law. My work also brings me in close proximity to individuals who work in all three branches of North Carolina government with whom I occasionally work on common problems, most recently work with the Hague and Vienna Conventions on Consular Relations. I also consult with the director of a county governmental agency to advise with regard to proposed legislation and an effective response to lawmakers before such legislation is enacted. I also advise with regard to the impact of new legislation on the agency.

Additionally, I have worked as a staff member on a congressional campaign, and have been the president of several student grass roots political organizations.

Grammar

As a legal professional, my stock and trade for the past sixteen years has been my ability to successfully utilize the English language to accomplish the goals set by my clients, who have included county governments and individuals and businesses. My legal work, both oral and written, has lead to considerable success in both state and federal courts, before administrative tribunals, as well as the North Carolina Court of Appeals, success which is dependent upon the proper use of grammar.

Additionally, as a published author of a legal publication that is published annually by an international publisher, I regularly edit supplementary text for each year's new publication. This work includes researching current legal developments and integrating these into an existing text, proofreading the text, assuring that proper grammar is used, and making necessary corrections before the text is sent on to the printer. I have undertaken such editing work annually for the past eleven years.

Law

I am a practicing trial attorney in North Carolina and have worked in both the private and public sectors since 1995. I have appeared in both state and federal courts, and have argued appellate cases before both the North Carolina Court of Appeals and the North Carolina Supreme Court.

Philosophy

I possess a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Asheville and have read and taught philosophy as part of a Master of Arts program in Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

Proofreading

As a published author of a legal publication that is published annually by an international publisher, I regularly edit supplementary text for each year's new publication. This work includes researching current legal developments and integrating these into an existing text, proofreading the text, and making necessary corrections before the text is sent on to the printer. I have undertaken such editing work annually for the past eleven years.

Public Speaking

As a trial attorney for sixteen years, I have successfully developed the ability to rhetorically strategize and effectively communicate my client's position to both judges and juries, with considerable success. Also, as part of my employment, I daily speak to groups of people, both professionals and the general public, about the law and law related subjects.

Religion

I am currently a graduate student in the Religious Studies Department of UNC-Charlotte. My area of concentration is Christianity and Mediteranean Religions in Early and Late Antiquity. A have presented papers at numerous professional conferences, both state and national in scope. I have completed 21 graduate hours (of 30) and maintain a 4.0 average.

SAT Reading

I have 80+ hours tutoring mainly in the area of SAT and ACT reading and writing test preparation.

Vocabulary

As a legal professional, my stock and trade for the past sixteen years has been my ability to successfully utilize the English language to accomplish the goals set by my clients, who have included county governments and individuals and businesses. My legal work, both oral and written, has lead to considerable success in both state and federal courts, before administrative tribunals, as well as the North Carolina Court of Appeals. This work has enabled me to offer students extensive expertise in gaining rhetorical skills, understanding key vocabulary, and in understanding the mechanics of effective persuasive and expository writing.

Writing

I am the author of North Carolina Juvenile Code: Practice and Procedure, a work that has been published by Thomson/West since 1993. In addition, I have published articles for Wake Forest University Continuing Legal Education, law review articles for the Campbell Law Review and for publication online with the Social Science Research Network.
