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.
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.

Excellent Tutor! — I felt very comfortable working with Daniel on my GRE and Graduate school preparations. He is very relaxed and is easy to understand when he explains questions that I do not understand. He is punctual, easy to reach, and is very flexible. I ended up being accepted into that graduate program partially thanks to his help! I would definitely recommend this tutor. ...
