Retired attorney teaching at university and middle school at present, specializing n literacy, social studies and test preparation..

About the lesson

I have a Juris Doctorate in Laws as well as a Bachelors of Science in Law. As a young man, while in law school, I served as Head Counselor for a UCLA program that prepared inner city youth for college. I taught at Long Beach State University and teach part time at Antioch University. My day job involves teaching under-prepared inner city middle school children, many for whom Spanish is the primary language.

I teach grammar, literacy and subject matter content in the same lesson. This is done by close reading. That is, where necessary, after a passage is read, the student and I will have conversation about what is read. Any grammatical mistakes or misunderstandings will be discussed and corrected. At the end, the students will write a paragraph about what was covered and a written grammatical critique will be provided the student.

About Cheka

At the various levels of secondary and post secondary education, I have been teaching 44 years. An ex-college athlete, I am still physically fit and the youngsters are surprised when they challenge me for a pick up game. My greatest joy is when I see past students who are now doctors, lawyers, professional athletes, police officers and dedicated mothers and fathers.
