Tim Clark, J.D.Educational Counselor
Tim is a seasoned, compassionate professional from both the educational and corporate worlds. This dual experience positions him to guide a range of students, from high school through graduate school. As a corporate lawyer for nearly 20 years, Tim has worked closely with a wide range of professionals, becoming deeply familiar with the myriad graduate and professional programs from which they came. Additionally, his 10 years of experience teaching, coaching and counseling middle school and high school students has positioned him to serve as a highly effective secondary school and college planner.
Tim graduated from Williams College, where he was active in student government, wrote for the student newspaper and was a member of the football and rugby teams. Before earning his J.D. from Boston College Law School, Tim worked in journalism. His legal career has included both corporate law and litigation with a premier Boston law firm and a General Counsel position with an innovative New England energy company. As someone who successfully provided legal services and counsel to a range of clients such as large publicly-traded manufacturers, small high-tech start-ups, venture capital firms, banks, real estate developers, hospitals and nonprofit foundations, Tim has acquired a strong understanding of an array of different professions. His close work with the financial, engineering, marketing, and operations personnel in that array of professions, and his warm personality, made him a natural mentor to those just starting out in their careers.
Notwithstanding his myriad successes in the corporate law world, Tim yearned for a new career challenge, and in 2003, decided to become an educator. After earning his teacher certification, Tim worked at the Fay School in Southborough, Massachusetts and The Peck School in Morristown, New Jersey, where he undertook a wide variety of responsibilities, including teaching math, history, law, government and economics; serving as an advisor; coaching multiple sports; chairing the History Department; serving on numerous policy committees and, once again, mentoring younger teachers who were on their way into education from various professional and educational settings or looking for Tim’s guidance in defining and executing the next professional or academic steps in their careers.
Tim and his wife Carolyn live just outside of Boston. He can frequently be seen riding his bike along the Charles River. In addition to bicycling, Tim enjoys jogging, tennis, and genealogical and historical research and writing. He also still maintains a part-time law practice. His wife Carolyn and he could not have been happier with the assistance McMillan Education provided to their two sons when they themselves were looking at boarding schools and then college several years ago.
