My goal is to provide students with an understanding of the topic that is tailored to the student's learning style while providing him or her broad insights into the issues. Quality writing, speaking, and argument can only come with a full understanding of facts and context, and having that will distinguish my students over their peers. Tailoring the material to the student will be an important way for him or her to, not only, understand and retain the information, but also to apply it. There are many educational tools that are either not used in classrooms or are not suitable for groups, finding the right tool for the student will be central to my approach.
My background is interdisciplinary and broad. I am a practicing attorney in Washington, DC with prior careers in technology consulting and intelligence analysis. I have bachelor and master degrees from Carnegie Mellon University, a law degree from Washington & Lee University, and am licensed by the bars of Virginia and Maryland. I was raised in Tucson, Arizona and have lived many years on the east and west coasts as well as abroad. I speak Russian fluently and am conversational in Portuguese.
