About Alex

I'm an English major and I have a JD from Suffolk Law. Coming out of college as an English major, I chose to pursue law, with the eventual goal of becoming a law professor down the line. I've always loved helping and teaching people, as I believe it's the most important thing we can do for one another as human beings - if we have the knowledge, I think we should share it with as many people as we can. I used to teach Cello part-time to fellow students when I was in high school, and that was great fun for everyone.

I've traveled extensively and have had some great experiences with education in other countries, like the UK, Sweden, and even Cuba. I take pride in helping my students understand what they are trying to learn, as well as in helping them to achieve what they've set out to do. It's not always an easy task, but with the right help, you can do it!

As an English major in college, a law student with multiple research assistant credentials, and an Editor on the Journal of High Technology Law in my final year of law school, I have extensive grammar, literature, proofreading, and general English skills.

Contact me if you are interested, want to find out if we'd be a good fit, or if you want to learn more about my experiences, schedule, or anything else. Looking forward to helping out!

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.

Bar Exam

I took and passed the NY Bar exam in 2015 on the first try. I currently work as an administrative law judge for the City of New York. I have experience through law school preparing for and tutoring students for law school exams and the bar.

Cello

I have been playing the cello for over 14 years. I attended NEC on weekends for 4 years, playing in various orchestras and chamber groups. I was a member of the NEC-YS orchestra for two years, during which time we went on tour in Greece for a spate of performances. My former cello teacher was the principal cellist of the Boston Pop's.

Criminal Justice

I have a JD from Suffolk Law School. I have worked for the New England Innocence Project on criminal DNA cases. I have worked in the court systems helping multiple pro se litigants set up their cases for court. I have experience dealing with courts, law firms, governmental associations, and the federal government as relates to criminal procedures.

English

I received my BA in English in 2012. I am a native speaker. I received my Juris Doctor in 2015. I have published a volume of poetry, as well as having participated in numerous writing competitions.

Geography

Having taken many world history classes, as well as geography classes in high school, I am consistently able to answer almost any geography questions that may arise. My interest in the subject is gained from my extensive travels. I continue to improve my knowledge on a daily basis through news, articles, and television series.

Grammar

As an English major and law graduate, grammar is a crucial aspect of my life and my work. I have consistently been top of my class in grammatical areas. I have been called upon to edit and review many documents for grammatical mistakes.

Law

I have a JD from Suffolk Law School, and have worked the past three years at various legal positions including law firms, state, and federal government. I graduated with distinction in the International Law Concentration, and worked in the Indigenous People's Clinic during my final year as a 3:03 Certified Student Attorney. Currently, I work as an Administrative Law Judge for the City of new York.

Literature

I have taken multiple literature courses throughout my high school and college careers. I also attended the University of Oxford for a semester, where I took an advanced English Literature class. I have been reading consistently since I was very young.

Macintosh

I have used Macintosh products since their inception. My father owned one of the original Mac computers, and I grew up using Macs as opposed to PCs. I worked in IT during my time in law school, and handled Mac-related issues on a variety of subjects.

Proofreading

Proofreading is an essential skill. As an English major and law graduate, proofreading was a daily task for me. I was also the Book Review Editor on the Journal of High Technology Law, which required daily citation and proofreading checks of multiple academic articles for publishing.

Vocabulary

As an English major and law graduate, vocabulary is critical. I have perfected my vocabulary over the years, and continue to learn new words almost every day. I consistently perform better on vocabulary tests than 95% of my peers.

World History

Having dual citizenship and speaking both French and Spanish, I have always been a student of world history. I took several courses in college, and continued my education with multiple study abroad opportunities. I have continued to learn as I progressed through my studies.

Writing

As well as holding an English BA and a JD, I have also written consistently. I was the Book Review Editor of the Journal of High Technology Law and the Opinion Editor of Dicta, the Legal Newspaper while in law school. I have also published a book of poetry.
