" 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.

In my free time, I love meditating, swimming, and checking out museums (especially MoMA).."

" Although history is my passion, I am well versed in English, Biology and served as a TA for Calculus my freshman year of college. I find that each student learns at a different capacity, so my teaching style is to first be aware of the material trying to be better understood. Then finding the correlation of the students interests and strengths in order to best relate the material we would be working with. I will then find the best way possible to make learning interesting and each experience and session new."
