Bio

My writing and analytical skills are well honed, and I have a warm yet exacting teaching style. As a litigation and criminal appeals attorney, I have written hundreds of legal documents and appeared in court to argue numerous cases before judges in New York, New Jersey, California and Washington State, which required my first taking and passing three different bar exams.

My writing and analytical skills are well honed, and I have a warm yet exacting teaching style. As a litigation and criminal appeals attorney, I have written hundreds of legal documents and appeared in court to argue numerous cases before judges in New York, New Jersey, California and Washington State, which required my first taking and passing three different bar exams. In addition to practicing law, I have written judicial opinions as a law clerk, taught legal writing as an adjunct professor in law school, and mentored dozens of interns and junior attorneys. I am also certified in mediation, an area that depends on empathy and listening in order to succeed.

My professional life has been well balanced by my second job as a mother of two boys, one now in college and the other still in High School. Throughout their years in school, I have carefully monitored their writing and test-taking skills, making suggestions where necessary. Beginning in Second Grade, I provided my sons and their classmates with an introduction to the legal system by conducting mock trials using simple scenarios created by the class, and the books they were reading and discussing in English, such as Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry.

I am creative, patient and flexible, and able to communicate extremely complicated concepts and information in simple and understandable terms. I look forward to helping others succeed with their professional and scholastic endeavors.

Writing

I have been a professional, legal and creative writer for over 30 years. I have also taught legal writing, an exacting form of writing in which structure, vocabulary, punctuation and grammar are key. My sons (1 in college and 1 in high school) have benefited from my expertise and so will you. I like to work one-on-one with students, advising them on their writing and critiquing their written work.

Excellent law Tutor and will be using again

Very knowledgeable on FRE and very friendly and easy to talk with. We spoke extensively on FRE procedures and the state of the Courts. Excellent tutor and will definitely use again

Stephen, 2 lessons with Tracy

Nice but not productive

Very nice but it was very clear that she did not understand any of the material. Nevertheless, she continued to charge me when nothing we did was productive. I strongly advise you not to hire her as a tutor. I've never been so disappointed. I give her 1.5/5, and the only reason why I would not give her a 0 was because she was at least friendly to talk to.

Justin, 5 lessons with Tracy
Tutor responded:

After two or three meetings it became apparent that Justin was not looking for a tutor, but rather a ghost-writer who would do the work for him. I hope he realizes at some point that accomplishment cannot be purchased; it requires commitment and work.

Tracy is creative and patient.

My daughter is fortunate to have Tracy helping her. My daughter is a 9th grader, has an above average IQ but has a specific learning disability. Tracy has been adjusting her approach to address my daughter needs.
