The LSAT is the first real step you take in your legal career and it is crucial to approach it strategically.
The most efficient way to prepare for the LSAT is to hire an experienced tutor - someone to help you figure out where you are starting, set a target score and plan the best way to get there.
I have been guiding aspiring attorneys through this process as a professional tutor for seven years and have the experience to help you get the score you need.
The LSAT is the only subject I teach and we will use real LSAT questions. The test, especially the logic games or puzzles section, requires a specific skill set and the only way to learn it is using the type of questions you will see on test day.
Together, we will evaluate your strengths and weaknesses and develop an approach that gives us the best chance to reach your goal so you can move on to the next level law school.
The first thing that we will do is take a full test using real past LSAT tests. From there we develop a plan to get the score you need. I will work with you on the fundamentals needed for each of the three basic parts of the test, arguments, passages and puzzles. We also work on test-taking skills, trying different approaches to each section.
The puzzles are the most difficult section initially, but that means it is also the best opportunity for you to increase your score. You will learn how to spot the different types of puzzles, how to develop an effective diagram and with practice, you will drastically improve your performance. I consistently see students make their biggest improvement in the puzzles section.
I scored in the top 3% of test-takers when I took the LSAT. I went on to Boston College Law School and have been a practicing trial attorney for six years. I work with students of all skill levels, whether you are just starting to prepare for the test or have already taken it and are looking for ways to increase your score.
