Retired attorney teaches English literature at your San Francisco or Peninsula home.

Methodology

I used the case law method. We read the cases and then commented on the rules of law we learned, tested against a variety of fact situations. Students were called upon to make contributions to the discussions.
This is called "the Socratic Method," involving interaction between teacher and students, and is applicable in all subjects and learning contexts.

Background

I have taught at San Francisco Law School for 10 years in the past. Classes included 50 students.
This was a night school, fully accredited, mostly for students who were otherwise employed full time during the day and wished to obtain a law degree to embark upon a new career.
I practiced law in the Bay Area for 50 years. It was a general practice.
