Elite, Experienced Chemistry, Counseling, and Law Tutor

The spoken word has immense power to effect social and political change. I fell in love with writing when I read Luther King Jr.'s "Letter from Birmingham Jail" in US History in 11th Grade.

Everyday I fight as a Criminal Defense attorney for the Office of the Public Defender in San Francisco County to uphold this Country's Constitutional Rights. [more]

No matter at what level you are, you should write concisely. You should use correct grammar and spelling. There will be times when you have to research your subject. When you use a computer, the Word program includes the MLA (Modern Language Association) style, which will [more]
