FALL SESSIONS STILL AVAILABLE ! **** Given my time limitations, I may not be able to accept you/your student at any given time and sometimes only online sessions may be available. Typically, I tutor about 40% in-person and 60% online at any given time. As of now, I only have two open spots remaining. I graduated from UCSD before receiving my J.D. in Criminal Law from UC Davis King Hall. I still practice and am currently a Public Defender. As a lawyer and educator, I have always been inte...

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. I saw first hand the real power of written advocacy by passionate lawyers at the UC Davis King Hall School of Law to change criminal justice, environmental change, and civil rights laws. 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.
I applied for law school in the fall of 2010 and graduated from UC Davis in 2014. I took over 20 classes and understand the strategies to succeed at the highest level in an intense and stressful environment. I charge $400 for a two-hour session for law schools applicants to finesse their applications for law school. I also offer sessions for current law students in any of their classes. Please contact me about my unlimited tutoring package for law students.
In high school, I was trained by the career advisors. In college, I worked in the Career Development center helping students with their cover letters and resumes for higher education (PHD, MS, JD, MD). In total I reviewed several thousands of resumes and cover letters.
After I finished my high school, I joined the UCSD college guidance program that worked interested college students. I helped them form their high school plans, the standardized test, and the necessary pre-reqs for the college they wanted admittance to. In total I have provided college guidance for over 200 students.
The California Bar Exam is one of the hardest, if not thee hardest in the country. The CA Bar is not just a test of knowledge, it's also a test of strategy and skills. When I took the CA bar in July 2014 and passed, only 48.6% of Californians passed. In July 2015, the pass rate was even lower. The ABA is making the tests more difficult to reduce the number of lawyers in CA. I took Barbri for my prep course. I have a very recent and in-depth understanding of the time a J.D. needs to invest to pass, the prep needed to succeed, and strategies to pass this very difficult test.
I have over 10 years of experience as a General Chemistry & Organic Chemistry teaching assistant. At UCSD, I took seven courses in organic chemistry: four lectures and three labs. I received two A-'s and five A's.
At UCSD I minored in political science. I took over seven classes and got A's in every class. The classes were taught by PH.D political scientists as well as lawyers. I also helped political science tutors while I was in law school.
