About Bret

I have a history degree from Baylor, a law degree from UT, a real knack for connecting with students, and an ability to make schoolwork seem relevant to your life.

My strongest areas are history, government, research, and writing. I can make mundane lessons seem interesting, and I can give you the tools to write a very good argumentative or persuasive paper.

I can also teach you good test-taking skills. I scored in the top 10% on my ACT and LSAT, and I passed the bar exam on my first try.

I hope I will have the chance to improve your skills.

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.

Autism

My son is going into 8th grade and is autistic. I have a lot of experience in working with him throughout all his time in school. Basically, dealing with an autistic student means that you know when to motivate with a carrot and when to motivate with a stick!

Public Speaking

I was an all-state debater in high school.

In college I was president of the College Republicans, a position which required a lot of public speaking.

As a professional I have appeared in court on many occasions, and made arguments in front of a judge and a jury. I also preach part-time.
