Hello!

My goal as a tutor is to help you succeed. I understand that everyone learns differently. Thus, it is up to me (the tutor) to teach the student (you) in the best manner for you.

My background is in the law; especially criminal law, restorative justice, alternative dispute resolution, and family law. I am a licensed practicing attorney in California. I have taught classes to paralegals in Family Law and also spoken at conferences regarding Restorative Justice in the Juvenile Justice System.

I also taught swimming and coached water polo for many years. As a student athlete all the way until my college graduation, I understand the school-team balancing act. Athletes can be very coachable students, if taught in a manner that allows them to grab the ball and score!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My goal as a tutor is to help you succeed. I understand that everyone learns differently. Thus, it is up to me (the tutor) to teach the student (you) in the best manner for you. I also taught swimming and coached water polo for many years. As a student athlete, all the way until my college graduation, I understand the school-team balancing act. Athletes can be very coachable students, if taught in a manner that allows them to grab the ball and score!

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

We would put the skill to use. We would go through hypotheticals, and then I would have the student come up with some hypotheticals themselves. Once you shift your brain from learning, to teaching, you master the skill.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

The most important strategy is to use several strategies and determine which works best for the student.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I am a student. Most people are students. Whether it be reading, literature, or politics, a person needs to seek out information to be current in the topic at hand. Independent learners worry less about what they actually know and spend their time searching the Internet or library for answers. Knowing how to get the information you need is key.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

In a first session, I want to hear from the student how they have been preparing and what the result has been. From there, we create a game plan to meet goals for each subject.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

To stay motivated, I create practice problems in a student's area of interest. For example, if a student loves football, we will have some football related practice essays.
