I exclusively teach the techniques and strategies to conquer the LSAT. I have spent over 5 years perfecting my methods and have taught thousands of students how to dramatically raise their LSAT scores. One of the highest score increases that a student of mine has attained was 32 points (from a 145-177). It is pretty typical that my students increase their score between 20-25 points if they work extremely diligently. I am upbeat and motivated to help you get into the law school of your dreams!
I only take on a limited number of students at one time to guarantee that each of my students get the absolute highest quality tutoring experience. Consequently tutoring space is limited.
My Official LSAT Stats:
- LSAT Score: 178 (99.9th percentile)
- Logic Games: Perfect score
- Reading Comprehension: Perfect score
- Logical Reasoning: 1 incorrect question within a section
Even though I attained a great score on the actual LSAT, it took a lot of work to get there. My first practice test score was a 156 which I was able to increase to a 178 using intuitive and effective techniques. These are the techniques that I have refined over the years and teach to my students to help them get 20+ point score increases.

Making the online tutoring experience just as effective and personal as live tutoring is my specialty. While working together, we'll use Skype or Google Hangouts to get the face-to-face experience. I also work in front of a whiteboard so that I can demonstrate the concepts visually to maximize your understanding. Many of my students prefer my style of online tutoring to live tutoring because it eliminates travel time to and from tutoring locations which allows them to dedicate more time to studying.

JD taught me how to do the logic section of the LSAT. When I first contacted him, I was scoring a 162 on practice tests. After 8 hours of tutoring over a couple of months, I scored ten points higher on the LSAT itself. This score (172) allows me to be an extremely competitive candidate for some of the best law schools in the nation.
JD is extremely knowledgeable about the test; he was always well prepared for our sessions and had the answers to all of my questions. He was able to explain the complicated principles so that I could understand and apply them with ease. He knew what practice materials were best and how long I should be spending on practice each day. I was very glad that I chose to do one on one tutoring rather than a larger course, as JD tailored all of his instruction to my specific needs.
He was also very accessible - he responded to all of my text messages within the day, and he was extremely flexible when it came to the time and location of the sessions. He was perfectly willing to travel to meet me wherever I happened to be, and even helped me when I got lost on the way.
I would strongly recommend JD as an LSAT tutor. Not only is he patient and competent, but he is also easy and fun to work with.
I chose to prepare for the LSAT independently, and I was doing okay, but I wasn't quite where I wanted to be a week before the test. I contacted JD wondering if he could meet on such short notice and if meeting so close to the test date would be helpful. Luckily, he made time to meet with me, and my two hour session with him was very helpful!
I was having trouble with the Logical Reasoning sections and getting about 12 wrong. JD went over some strategies and hints with me, and we then went through some questions I had gotten wrong before. He explained my mistakes clearly and helped me understand how to tackle such questions in the future. He gave me a study plan for my remaining week before the test date, and with that, I was able to score in the 97th percentile and got only 4 LR questions wrong. I wish I had scheduled another session with him to help me out with the reading section, because I'm sure that would have helped as well!
Anyway, I definitely recommend meeting with JD for any LSAT help. He is patient, understanding, and very knowledgeable about the LSAT. From my experience, even just one 2-hour session can yield great results! Thanks, JD!
J.D. and I have been working these few weeks to turn my weaknesses into strengths. Between our review sessions and the online logic games website, Odyssey Revolution, I am going faster on LSAT sections. Yesterday, J.D. and I worked on Reading Comprehension. He helped me realize how to approach the section differently to improve my score. I can honestly say that I feel more prepared for the exam from working with J.D.
As a person with no mathematical mind, JD is really helping me reach better understanding. Specifically, he patiently and accurately is helping me with the logic games portion of the LSAT. He has a system that works. His patient and accommodating demeanor allow for a pleasant process. I highly recommend JD.
JD is extremely knowledgeable and very easy to work with. He was very flexible on arranging tutoring sessions to fit my schedule. I would definitely use JD again if necessary!
J.D. is a fantastic tutor who far exceeded my expectations. He is not only a master at the LSAT but a great teacher as well. His services were most beneficial to my preparation in the following ways. Firstly, J.D. Is very flexible in building a cohesive schedule to meet your needs. He also is very patient when going through material. This was especially helpful because his positive attitude motivated me to stay focused. Vital to any student, JD possesses a vast arsenal of LSAT techniques and tips that significantly improve one's efficiency and accuracy. Overall, JD is a true professional whose services are worth every dollar.
JD is an excellent LSAT tutor. Before contacting him, I was scoring an average of 151- for a few months straight. After two meetings, JD helped me to target my biggest weaknesses. Within a span of two weeks (3 hours worth of lessons), I was able to jump 10 points! He not only taught me how to approach questions, he taught me how review my practice tests so that my score can continue improve.
JD has been effective in filling in the gaps where I have been falling short on the LSAT. Prepare for a brain overload with new information, but it is for the better. If you have any "formal" LSAT training from a prep course be ready to assimilate new and intuitive strategies or replace what you thought you knew about the LSAT. Great resources and great instruction. Punctual in every aspect and very respectful. Two thumbs up!
With JD's help, I've improved my logic game section drastically -- in six weeks of prep, we've transformed it from a weakness into a strength. In my last two practice tests, I scored perfectly in both logic game sections. With two and a half weeks remaining until the Feb. 8 LSAT, I look forward to continued improvement and consistency. JD has helped me develop new techniques that will assuredly guide me on test day. Specifically, we've worked on eliminating careless mistakes and identifying rules in question stems. When I took the October LSAT, I was a nervous wreck two weeks prior. Now, I am confident that my hard work and new skills will reflect in my Feb LSAT performance. JD's motto is, "get one more point, per section right every time." I've adopted this motto and have improved accordingly. What makes it even better is that (1) JD meets me at my house and (2) he utilizes every minute of our sessions -- just as every question counts on test day, every minute counts in preparation. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased with JD's services, and happily recommend him to all prospective LSAT test takers!
JD was a great tutor. I have not been in school in about 20 years. Besides rusty, I was also quite anxious about taking the LSAT. I am a single mother of 2 and could not take an evening prep course so I decided on a tutor. JD was great. He was professional, courteous and encouraging and worked around my schedule. He used our time very effectively. And expected a lot from me in terms of study. I felt very much a "we're in this together" learning relationship. I am a tough customer. He met my expectations and I would recommend him to anyone serious about learning the LSAT.
Deciding that I want to take the LSAT was a big decision for me. I do not test well at all and feel like I always learned more with a one on one atmosphere. JD is very patient, tremendously smart, and is excellent at explaining all my questions that I constantly have. JD gave me a positive hope of actually doing well on my LSAT. Without hesitation I recommend him to everyone looking to do well on the test.
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.
The LSAT is my passion and I am honored to work with so many great students. Hopefully we can work toward your dream LSAT score together.
