October 2010

First off, welcome to my page. If you've made it this far you're headed in the right direction. To begin with, let me tell you a bit about myself. I am a 28 year-old attorney. Don't let the legal education fool you though, I tend to dabble in a little bit of everything. Before I decided to study law I was a collegiate football player at Texas Tech University and was part of the most successful team in the school's history. I gained both my undergraduate and law degree while at Texas Tech and have continued to engage in self-education as well as educating others. I would love to get to know a bit about you and answer any of your questions about my experiences both academically or athletically. I intend to make each tutoring session fun and will sculpt them to fit your needs and learning style. Hope to hear from you soon!

My experience with Michael has been fantastic. I needed his help to sharpen my interview skills and he was just what the doctor ordered. He does a thorough homework, has very keen observation and provides some useful tips. Highly recommend him.

My son was reluctant to play basketball and take lessons but Michael made it fun and Jordan really improved. Thanks Coach Michael.

Michael is a very genuine and honest person. I had him for life coaching, and I highly recommend him to other clients. He is easy to talk to; he does not judge others. He is extremely motivating and intelligent. I am positively changing day by day because of his enthusiasm to help me.
