I am a Harvard Law 0L with a background in writing for a high-level government official. I enjoy teaching the LSAT, the SAT, history, and writing, and I work with all students of all ages, from elementary to post-grad. I'm a patient, committed, and capable tutor who will give you personalized attention and tailor my study plan to fit yours.

I scored a 173 (the top 1 percent of test scores) on the LSAT by tackling and approaching the test methodically. I enjoy teaching and sharing these methods to allow you to tackle the test, too. I will approach each test you take as if it is my own, and I will systematically work you through the questions, games, and passages to teach you the skills necessary to dramatically improve your score. I will work with you on accuracy and speed, and I will help you create a study plan to maximize your results.

I scored a perfect 800 on the writing section of the SAT, as well as a perfect 800 on the SAT subject test in American History. I particularly enjoy working with students on these subjects, helping them to not only score higher on the SAT, but to also allow them to fully understand the subjects they explore.

I hold a degree in political science from Johns Hopkins University, where I graduated Phi Beta Kappa. For LSAT-related study, I will provide a number of free practice and test materials. I look forward to working with you!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I would slowly and deliberately walk them through the fundamentals of the concept and the theoretical underpinnings. Then, I would look at some questions and carefully analyze the wrong and right answers.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I will assess his or her weaknesses, ask what he or she is struggling with, evaluate prior performance, and set a study schedule.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

By showing him or her the techniques to analyze and understand a question and the fundamentals that underlie that understanding.
