University of Texas at Austin (History)
Texas A&M School of Law (J.D.)
I am currently studying to become a family law attorney at Texas A&M School of Law. I am in my second year of study and have spent majority of my free time working with school-aged children and young adults. I have experience tutoring in English, History, Language Arts, and Philosophy. Additionally, I have taken the PSAT, SAT, ACT, LSAT, and MPRE. I am passionate, driven, and willing to work as hard as the student is. I grew up in a military family, so my regimes are strict, I am well organized, but my methods work. I find that students need help with more than anything time management skills and the ability to remain organized. I love being able to teach students as much as I love learning from them.
I have a Bachelor's of Arts in History and Philosophy. Both majors require analytical reasoning and deduction, organization, and strong writing skills. I am an avid member of Toast Masters, Intramural Moot Court, have taken speech classes in both undergraduate and graduate school, regularly participate in panels and student tours, and have attended workshops to better prepare me for speaking in court and in front of a jury.
I scored nearly perfect on all TAKS tests taken while in high school, graduated at the top of my class, and was admitted to the most prestigious public school in the state with automatic admission. I have also tutored school-aged children on various topics tested on the TAKS or STAAR tests, to include history, English, and science.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about my approach to learning, my experience with school, or any concerns you may have. I am generally available all afternoons and mornings throughout the week; my time is flexible. I am eager to teach and hope you are eager to learn!

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 have taken public speaking classes in both high school and college. I regularly participate in Moot Court, a simulated Court of Appeals oral argument competition, and Toast Masters. I struggled with public speaking as a child, but my career as an attorney has taught me ways to cope with nerves and different techniques for effective speaking.
