I am a lawyer, an English major, and former educational administrator who recently started a business. I live in Brooklyn and I'm originally from Jacksonville, Florida. I've lived all over the country in Los Angeles, Chicago, Florida, and NYC. Formerly I practiced bankruptcy law.
I have passed the bar exam in three states via self-study on my first try for each: California (2015), New York (2020 UBE), and Illinois (2007). On the UBE I scored in the top 8 percentile. During the past few years I've taught numerous students how to pass the bar exam in many states.
I am also skilled with essay writing, composition, editing, test taking strategy, literature, reading comprehension, and all areas of government/civics and law.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is to be patient, communicative, and approach the student on their own terms.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
On a typical first session I would ask the student about their background, their learning styles, and skill level. I would also introduce myself and make sure the student was comfortable with me. Finally I would set realistic goals and expectations for our time together.
