About Alfred

I have extensive international classroom experience. I have a B.A./B.S. in International Relations and Math from Columbia University, New York; and a Legal Practitioner Certification from the European Union. For the past decade, I have been working in Madrid, Spain, within the law fields (International, Immigration, Patents, Comparative and Linguistic). I have recently moved back to the United States and dedicate my time to teaching and tutoring. I have over a decade of experience working with students from many countries in a variety of subjects ranging from Algebra I to advanced vocabulary, analogies, American History, and languages.

I believe that due to my qualifications as well as analytical abilities, your grades will improve because I do not accept passive attitudes or failure.
---------------------------------------------------
Strong analytical skills and dedicated work ethic
---------------------------------------------------

I firmly believe that everyone is capable of passing the subject matter. I also believe that any goal can be achieved with hard work and the help of a good teacher. That is why I would like to help every student discover potential for the application of their subjects.

Beyond the receiving of higher grades or higher test scores, which I feel I can help all students to achieve, I seek to enhance student's appreciation and pride in their own work. There simply can be no excuse for failure. The greatest satisfaction of my work is to see how a student turns from a passive, uninterested observer into someone who blooms as time goes by in the class.

I grew up in Bergen County, went to Columbia University to get my Math and International Relations degrees, then went off to the United Kingdom to study Law. I have extensive classroom experience, including having taught college level courses. I also teach one- to-one. None of my students have ever remained indifferent about me or my classes.

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.

Criminal Justice

LLM/JD degree, University of London, over 5 years experience teaching Criminal Law (comparative as well).

Tutoring methods: a thorough comparative approach to the subject, detail oriented, fully explanatory lessons where the students has the opportunity to apply the matter and use appropriate case law.

I am familiar with most Criminal Justice textbooks currently in use and always have the relevant cases to accompany the lessons.
