If you’ve found this post, you’ve likely read my writing about the LSAT and law school admissions elsewhere. You may also have found my profile on a listing website for independent tutors. (If you’ve managed to track me down, you’ve probably figured out that I offer significant discounts for booking with me outside of that website’s ecosystem.)
Are you taking students?
I’m taking new students on a case-by-case basis. At this time I can only work with students who are taking the LSAT in February 2021. I do not teach logic games. I will only take students who I truly believe can achieve their desired score by working with me between now and February. I will stop teaching on February 21, 2021 and will accept new students again in late May 2021.
How much do you charge?
I charge $100/hr for logical reasoning and $150/hr for reading comprehension.
I charge $50/hr for an initial hour-long consultation. People who are very close to achieving 170 and who are stumped by a few of the trickier logical reasoning and reading comprehension questions often only need 1-2 sessions. There is a reason I charge a lot and do not do free consultations; it’s because people don’t stay with me for very long and because I give away the store during the first session. We discuss your goals, your work so far, what is holding you back, and chart a course forward. We also review your past work on logical reasoning. Bring 5-10 questions that stumped you, or, I can tell you exactly what section to take.
How long are your appointments?
Usually it takes an hour to go through a reading comprehension section and it takes half an hour to go through a logical reasoning section. For best results we should work together at least twice a week until you are regularly testing in the 170s. You should also take two full practice tests/week and review them with Van Tran or Kerry Monroe. They charge $80/hr and work with my students on logic games. I think it can be useful to have a different perspective on the other section as well. We have a mutual referral network and no one’s feelings will be hurt if you switch between tutors, particularly since I charge more than they do.
What if I can’t afford you?
I can sometimes work with students at discounted rates but can’t discuss this possibility outside of the initial consultation. If you really can’t afford $50, send me a message on the site where you found me and I’ll try to chat you back. I also let some people list on my website at more affordable rates. You can see them through the booking page. I know money is an issue which is why I hang out on message boards and have a newsletter and write a blog with advice. I’m working on funding for a scholarship program. Check back for updates.
Do you do applications consulting?
I think only people who have served on law school admissions committees are qualified to do law school admissions “consulting.” I don’t have time to help people with the whole process but I have a very talented friend who I recommend highly. She charges ~$500 for a full package which is very competitive.
