Attorney who majored in English and has over 20 years of reading and writing experience looking to improve your reading comprehension and writing skills

Methodology

My teaching method is to understand the student's learning style and to use teaching methods that are engaging to the student. I also like to use real-world activities to help students learn rather than just relying on text. I try to keep it exciting and fresh so that students won't get bored!

Background

I am a practicing attorney who reads and writes for a living. I also have taught part-time at a local community college and I regularly provide training on difficult legal concepts as part of my job. I love seeing students master a difficult topic!
