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 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.

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 Dan's help on my LSAT and essay. I feel very lucky to have had Dan's help and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone. If you're not in the area, use his Skype method--you won't find a better tutor.
Dan not only teaches you how to arrive at the correct answers but also how to quickly get there. Hope his tricks and strategies will help me boost my LSAT score!
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.
Daniel is a very talented tutor and great communicator. My tutoring with him included review of written materials. His written feedback was concise and thorough. This was one of the best decisions I made to hire Daniel. I will definitely be using him again for his expertise. He's also a really nice person. Thank you!
I was enormously impressed with Dan as a tutor. Not only did his assistance raise my LSAT range by 12 score levels, but he was professional, punctual, and easy to understand. I did the Skype format with Dan, which I found extremely convenient and effective. It was so nice to be able to get tutoring from the convenience of my home office without driving time as a factor. I was able to start tutoring right after work, which allowed more time for tutoring and practicing. I'm confident you will find Dan as effective, fun, and polite as I did. Great experience!
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.
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.
