George Washington University (Master's)
For the past eleven (11) years, I successfully pursued multiple degrees pertaining to the legal profession. I received my Bachelor's degree with a major in political science and a minor in criminal justice. Shortly thereafter, I received an Associates degree in Paralegal Studies. Finally, and most noteworthy, in August 2011, I received a Masters in Paralegal Studies from George Washington University wherein I obtained critical legal research and writing skills as well as application of case law to fact patterns.
All of the above referenced educational experience included heavy emphasis on developing a high standard of reading comprehension, application, analysis and writing skills. As a result, I have extensive experience with researching and preparing papers in a wide range of topics at the college level. I developed important organizational and outlining skills critical to preparing high level writing pieces. Specifically, the Master’s program taught me the key processes for legal research and writing necessary in the legal profession. Therefore, my extensive educational experience ranges from English writing and reading comprehension development at all levels of the undergraduate level to the graduate level.
In addition, I have worked as a Legal Assistant/Paralegal in law firms for approximately 11 years. Most of my experience is in civil litigation with regard to personal injury cases. I work on multiple files on a day-to-day basis and have extensive experience with civil litigation files, including, but not limited to obtaining discovery materials, drafting pleadings, preparing trial subpoenas, medical chronologies, deposition summaries, trial notebooks, etc. Being able to share my knowledge and experience with other paralegal students will be a rewarding experience.
Furthermore, I also provide tutoring for students in preparation for the SAT. My teaching technique is unique to each student's needs with specific focus on only those topics and/or skills required. My overall goal is to provide teaching and guidance specific to each student to develop the skills and testing techniques required to increase a SAT score. Over the past four (4) years, I have worked with several friends, family and other students by referral and each student benefits from the additional resources and skill building knowledge from previous students.

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.
Development of writing skills by a student tends to focus around organization of the thought process and application to the information presented. I have extensive experience preparing papers under strict guidelines and deadlines. The final paper(s) present a concise and thorough analysis based on the facts and issue in a given situation.
My Master's degree specifically pertains to legal research and writing. The program involved composing two to three papers a week under strict guidelines. As a result, each paper represented a clear, concise and thorough analysis of the issue(s) presented.
