I am a Gates Cambridge Scholar and recently completed my MPhil in Development Studies at the University of Cambridge. This fall, I will begin my legal education at Yale Law School. I believe that my achievement on the LSAT and in the law school application process, as well as my two years’ worth of part-time tutoring experience, have enabled me to help others successfully navigate the process of preparing for a legal education.
In the summer of 2014, I started preparing for the LSAT while working full-time at a think tank in Washington, DC. I attended a few prep courses, but primarily self-studied, relying exclusively on prep books. I worked through every page of them and completed nearly every practice LSAT test available. I can confidently say that I owe my 173 score to the methods I picked up along the way and have become intimately familiar with. As a tutor, I am more than capable of teaching those methods to those who need it, as well as helping them work through particularly difficult questions in prep books and practice tests.
My success in the law school application process, including acceptances to Yale, Harvard, and Stanford, and a Hamilton Fellowship offer from Columbia, demonstrates my ability to craft a strong personal statement and resume, and solicit powerful letters of recommendation. I am more than happy to mentor students through the application process to help them do the same.
As a volunteer with Moneythink, a non-profit, I spent tens of hours in under-resourced schools in Chicago mentoring students in financial literacy. I worked with students of different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, and of varying academic abilities. I know how to adapt my teaching methods and explanations to meet my students at their level, wherever that may be.
As a tutor, I am confident that I can help my students meet their potential.
