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.

The friends at 2/3 of 3/4. "Of" is word problem for "multiply." They ate (2/3)(3/4). To multiply fractions, multiply the top across, and the bottom across: (2/3)(3/4) = 6/12, which reduces to 1/2, since you can evenly divide both 6 and 12 by 6. Your...
There are two things you're looking for - the amount invested in stocks, and the amount invested in bonds. To help keep things straight, let's use S and B (respectively) to represent them. So, what do we know about S and B?
S + B = 40,000. The total investment...
