" I also work with students in history and general homework help. I am a published writer, with articles in national and local publications and Yahoo! Finance. I wrote about legal and financial issues and discovered that I really enjoy the law - so I moved to Williamsburg, Virginia for three years and studied at the College of William & Mary, the country's oldest law school. During the week, I am a practicing attorney who has taken and passed three bar exams - each on the first attempt. I believe that any student can achieve and that no one style fits everyone. I maintain flexibility and adjust my methodologies for each student that I work with." ...

I love playing guitar and singing more than anything, I've recently been reading a lot of Hemingway, and I absolutely love old Russian literature, particularly Tolstoy.."

" The funny part is that while I always enjoyed writing and had a passion for it, I was never very good. I had my problems with my own writing and certainly not, at first, qualified to tutor anyone else in it. In fact, my first creative writing class I took at Middlebury, my professor told me that writing was not my strong suit. I was discouraged. Frustrated, even."
