I am a self-confessed law geek who enjoys helping people understand the intricacies of law. I graduated from University of California, Hastings College of the Law cum laude, and have an MA in Communications Management from University of Southern California. My BA is from Pomona College (Go Sagehens!) I have taught Constitutional Law, Evidence, Professional Responsibility, and Criminal Procedure as an adjunct professor. I personalize my approach to the needs of the student and the demands of the class or test that they're preparing for. To me, Law is as much a language as it is a discipline, and I try to help students understand the context of the subject matter as well as how best to demonstrate their knowledge, whether on standardized tests or through essays. I also enjoy helping students craft and hone research papers. To me, teaching is incredibly fulfilling and I look forward to helping you understand and succeed in your classes.

I enjoy spending time with my spouse, my dogs, and my overstuffed library of books. I'm a keen soccer fan, amateur chess player, and avid concert-goer. I can also be found on local hiking trails, reading legal decisions, and playing with my dogs (there's also a good chance that you'll see or hear them during any tutoring sessions). I apologize in advance for my trivia, puns and dad jokes.
