About Dan

I am an exceptionally qualified tutor, especially for LSAT, writing, admissions essays, public speaking, interviewing, and law. I have extensive teaching experience as a professor of law at Northeastern and Harvard Law School. I was voted Teacher of the Year in 2007 by the student body at Northeastern Law School. I graduated with honors from U.C. Berkeley and Harvard Law School. I am a published author (books, essays, scholarly articles, all laid out in my website) and have a lengthy record as a top-notch scholar. Aside from teaching and scholarship, I was an accomplished courtroom litigator, with considerable experience in capital punishment (I was lead counsel that led to the ending of capital punishment in New York). My communication skills are exemplary, which facilitates my ability to create a dynamic learning environment for students with a variety of learning styles.

I am currently a psychotherapist, specializing in performance optimization. I coach professionals and students in how to perform at their peak. I would welcome the opportunity to work with you or your son or daughter.

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.

I am a Harvard Law graduate and a former professor of law at Northeastern University School of Law and Harvard Law School. I've passed the bar examination twice--in New York and California.

Career Development

I am a former law professor and long-time courtroom lawyer. I am now a psychotherapist and wellness coach. Included in my practice is the coaching of individuals in pursuing career goals. I have experience in crafting effective resumes and improving interviewing skills. I can also help identify skills and interests and matching them up to viable careers.

LSAT

I scored in the 99th percentile on the LSAT.

Public Speaking

I am an experienced courtroom lawyer who has advocated several high-profile cases (including the case that ended capital punishment in New York).

Very helpful public speaking coaching session

Dan is excellent! I was hoping to get some suggestions for academic seminar presentations. Dan offered great advice for the delivery and for engaging the audience. I would highly recommend him for public speaking training.
