About Stefan

My tutoring qualifications are extensive. For example, I am a Certified Instructional Substitute Teacher (k-12). Also I am Certified in Building Better Readers, an elementary reading technique that helps students struggling with pronunciation and comprehension. Also, I am an Alumni of AmeriCorps, where I worked in critical humanitarian needs environments specifically related to education of elementary school students. As an AmeriCorps member I was certified in reading, writing, grammar, pronunciation, CPR, disaster preparedness, disability awareness, and other humanitarian related subject matter such as working with students living with learning disabilities. Finally, I am very knowledgeable with Macintosh, Microsoft Software, and Audacity audio editing software.

I am also a recent graduate from Suffolk University Law School, an Attorney in the Boston Area, and hold a doctorate degree. During Law School, I published several articles relating to law, justice, civil rights, and history. My practical experience comes from being a volunteer with the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office, the Edgartown District Court's Clerk Magistrate and (I hope) passing the MA and FL bar exams. Now I work in the criminal justice field at the United States Attorney's Office where I ply my trade in order to keep the citizens of the United States and New England safe.

In closing, let me also talk about who I am as a person. My first passion was teaching. I went to law school to help others in educational need through utilizing the law. After my family became the victim of crime I dedicated my efforts to working as an attorney in criminal prosecutions. I have worked with the District Attorney's Offices the United States Attorney's Office, and the Massachusetts Government to reach these ends.

I am a team player and get along well with others. There is never a task too big (or small) for me and I appreciate challenges. I ran cross-country at Rollins College and am always in the Fens playing pick up basketball with my Suffolk Law School buddies. Finally, I am uncle six times over and work especially well with children. For these reasons I hope you will choose me to help you further your educational goals.

Very truly,

Stef

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 have recently sat for the MA and FL bar exams. I have all my resources from my bar review course still in my possession. If admitted to the bars of these states I would possess the ability to dissect not only the application process but also the best practices in study techniques. Finally, I was a representative for a major bar review course and have invaluable advise on the Bar Application process.

Basketball

I have played basketball for over twenty years. As an athlete I played High School, AAU, and intramural basketball. At the AAU level I have be a member of a 8 time state championship team, as a member of a High School team I was a point guard, and as an intramural basketball player I managed both school and sports effectively. I have coached numerous recreational teams at the elementary level and continue to volunteer as an AAU basketball coach.

Criminal Justice

I have interned with the District Attorney's Office for 2 years. During that time I arraigned defendants and requested bail; provided discovery; and prepared for trial. Further, I conducted legal research on suppression matters, witness identification, and confessions. Also, I interacted with Judges, defense attorneys and Clerks in order to efficiently and expeditiously handle pre-trial conferences, requests for discovery, and jury election dates. Moreover, I drafted intra-office memorandum regarding requests for direct indictment; assisted with grand jury witness preparation, and prepared motions in opposition, relating to suppression of witness identification and statements made by defendants.

Elementary (K-6th)

During College I signed up to be a substitute teacher with the Pasco County School District. Thereafter I worked in K-6 for three months out of the year over a four year period, or one year of experience. Additionally, I worked as a Community Outreach Associate for AmeriCorps and was placed in an elementary school helping children learning to read, write, do simple math, and some sciences. Finally, I volunteer as a tutor in various schools throughout the Bay State.

Microsoft Windows

I am proficient at Microsoft Office on BOTH Windows and Macintosh operating systems. I have used Microsoft Office for over 10 years, from High School through Law School and am well versed in different versions of the program. Finally, I have drafted hundreds of individual documents on Microsoft office ranging from simple three paragraph cover letters to 100 page dissertations.

Political Science

In undergraduate, at Rollins College in Orlando, FL, I was a minor in political science where I maintained a 3.70 GPA. I was also accepted by American University to participate in their Law and Justice program where I learned, first hand, about federal, municipal, and international politics. Finally, I received my Juris Doctorate from Suffolk University Law School in 2014.

Public Speaking

I have an award in oral argument from Suffolk University Law School. I also participated in the Clark Oral Advocacy and Appellate Advocacy competition; where I wrote an appellate brief and argued it during a mock trial competition. Finally, I have worked at and interned with several District Courts; speaking to judges, arraigning defendants, and arguing motions as well as conducting jury trials on behalf of the Commonwealth.
