Pennsylvania State University (Criminal Justice)
Duquesne University School of Law (J.D.)
I have always had a passion for learning about a variety of subject areas, which has instilled in me a desire to share my passion with those around me. My endless curiosity and desire to learn took me through my undergraduate studies at the Pennsylvania State University, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice in 2006, followed by a Juris Doctorate degree at the Duquesne University School of Law in 2010. In October 2010, I obtained my license to practice law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
In addition to the above, I have studied Spanish for many years, specifically from middle/high school through my tenure as an undergraduate student and on up to the present day. Since that time, I have managed to become fluent in Spanish with respect to speaking, reading, and writing by way of various tools and programs and would be confident in my ability to convey such knowledge with respect to vocabulary, grammar, and verb conjugation.
In conjunction with my passion for learning, one of my hobbies is History, especially such subject areas as American History, European History, Latin American History, and Ancient History (especially the Classical Civilizations of Greece and Rome).
I strongly believe that one of the greatest assets of any society is in having a well-informed and well-educated citizenry. As such, it is incumbent upon present generations to instill a desire for intellectual curiosity and discovery in order to successfully compete in an increasingly globalized economy.
My schedule is flexible as I am always mindful that schedules are busy and apt to change. Therefore, while I do have an 8-hour cancellation policy, I am certainly willing to schedule makeup sessions for interested students.
I look forward to working with you in the future and would like to thank you in advance for your time and consideration in allowing me to assist you with achieving your goals!

If long-term tutoring with a specific student is established, rate may be subject to change based on student progress/success. Advanced notice will be provided if such a change is requested.
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 qualified to tutor prospective students about the nature of American criminal justice on account of the fact that I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Crime, Law & Justice from the Pennsylvania State University in 2006.
In addition, my subsequent legal education at Duquesne University, which resulted in my obtaining a Juris Doctorate and license to practice law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, also provided me with the necessary knowledge of the American criminal justice system to the point at which I would be comfortable sharing such knowledge with others.
I feel that I am qualified to tutor in this subject on account of my legal education background, which requires a tremendous amount of reading comprehension and interpretation. Additionally, I had tutored elementary school children while a member of the National Honor Society in high school, which included such subjects as reading and writing. Lastly, I also enjoyed this experience and would be happy to have it again.
My educational background in Spanish is quite extensive, reaching back to middle school. I studied Spanish all through high school and on an advanced level for three years as a college undergraduate. I've maintained my Spanish skills since that time via such programs as Duo Lingo and am considered to be fluent. In my capacity as an E-Discovery Attorney, I also assist with the writing and translation of Spanish documents as one of my job functions. I look forward to providing any assistance I can.
