If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I am an LSAT tutor and a former attorney, as well as an experienced teacher/tutor. I am also the author of "LSAT 60 Dissected," available through Amazon. My teaching experience includes the school classroom, tutoring a wide variety of academic subjects while in college, and teaching the card game bridge. My LSAT score was in the 99th percentile, and after graduating from a Top-20 law school, I passed the California bar on my first attempt.

I believe in a student-oriented approach to teaching, as opposed to a "one size fits all" mentality. Different students will have different strengths and weaknesses with respect to the three subject components of the LSAT, as well as different learning styles.

We will focus on identifying your strengths and weaknesses, and then shoring up the weaknesses to maximize the benefit of the time we spend together. I can tell you from personal experience - the LSAT is beatable. It's a matter of understanding the sections, learning how to think about the questions and avoid common traps, and learning some of the shortcuts that will allow you to manage your time effectively.







My biggest strength as a teacher is quickly assessing and understanding my students' thought processes. I communicate (send AND receive) well, and I will understand how you're thinking about the areas you're having trouble with, so I can explain how you can

improve in a way that will make sense to you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bar Exam

I'm a former lawyer. I was a top-20 law school graduate, and I passed the California bar exam on my first try.

Chess

I joined the United States Chess Federation in September, 1984, and was first rated in the January, 1985 rating supplement. In March, 1986 (age 17), I was officially rated a USCF expert. Although I have largely given up serious chess for serious bridge, I still play casually, and my USCF rating is over 2100 (Expert level). I have had numerous students over the years, and can assess your weaknesses and shore them up, or we can work on particular areas you wish to improve on, such as endgame technique, building an opening repertoire, attack, strategy, etc.

Public Speaking

I am a Toastmaster (international organization for public speakers), and an attorney and a former standup comic - two professions for which public speaking skills are a must. Whatever your needs are with respect to public speaking, I can help you meet your goals.

By far the best LSAT tutor. — I did the eight week PowerScore class and worked a couple of times with another tutor in the area but Dan was by far the most helpful in improving my LSAT score. He literally wrote the book on the subject. I met with him after the LSAT to work on my personal statement as well and he guided me and gave very helpful insight. I got into my #1 choice school; I am sure I could not have done it without ...
