I am a lawyer, an English major, and former educational administrator who recently started a business. I live in Park Slope, Brooklyn and I'm originally from Jacksonville, Florida. I've lived all over the country in Los Angeles, Chicago, New Jersey, Florida, and now NYC.
Hopefully students can benefit from my maturity and life experiences in addition to my subject matter expertise. I am 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.
