Experienced LSAT Tutor With Unique and Proven Approach (San Diego)

I am an attorney and LSAT tutor of five years and have had hundreds of students. I have created a streamlined, meticulous approach to the LSAT which breaks down every question type within each game, argument and reading comprehension section.

Fact is, despite popular opinion, this test is predictable and you can beat it. I've honed my approach over the years to where we have become very successful at picking apart the decoys of the exam and the most common and attractive wrong answers. I am particularly proud of my students' progress in Reading Comp and Games as I've seen immense improvement from my students in these areas.

I know the LSAT preparation process can be frustrating. Sometimes even the commercial courses don't help. I believe there is a reason for this and as such, I tailor my approach to the intricate reasons my students are getting questions wrong. This is a method you seldom, if ever, will receive from a commercial tutoring service.

My students always have success, if they work hard that is. We will pinpoint what it is that is tripping you up and will hone in on the exact areas that need serious scrutinizing. If you are in the 140s or 150s and want to be in the 150s or 160s or if you're already at a high level and want to enter the 170s, let us work together to obtain your goal. My satisfaction truly comes from your growth.

The LSAT is 50% of the admissions process for law school - do not skimp on the preparation.

Whether we work together or not, I recommend selecting a tutor that specializes only in LSAT prep, rather than working with one who tutors for various exams. Select a tutor who knows the LSAT inside and out, a tutor whose sole focus is on this exam and no other exam.

As you'll see below, my price is consistently more than HALF that of commercial course private tutors. The reason for this is not because you'll get inferior preparation - it's because I find it obscene to charge that much for LSAT prep. Here is a breakdown of what each commercial course charges for private tutoring sessions:

Kaplan: $153/hr
PowerScore: $150/hr
Princeton Review: $125 - $375/hr
Test Masters: $150/hr

My rate is considerably lower.

Additionally, I'm not anchored to the clock. If we're five minutes over, I never rush my students out the door - I finish the strategy we're learning.

A recent student just informed me of his acceptance into USC Law - a top 20 school. He came to me with a 158 and obviously went way up the ladder. This is one of many similar stories.

I am currently accepting students for the September exam.

Please contact me to set up a meeting to get started. We'll discuss all the details of the actual strategies you need to learn via the phone if you'd like to call me or in our first session together. Looking forward to hearing from you! You can reach me at 516-297-5376 (don't worry, I'm in San Diego).
