I am a third-year law student at the University of Texas School of Law and a graduate of Rice University. I was a full-time tutor for two years in-between undergrad and law school and enjoyed it so much that I decided I want to continue tutoring on the side during law school!

I have tutored most non-AP level high school subjects, as well as AP history courses. I've also tutored SAT, ACT, and PSAT students, as well as ran a GED course for a for-profit college. I also have experience tutoring the LSAT, having scored a 172 myself.

I will consider solicitations on a case-by-case basis, depending on what you are looking for and what I can offer. However, please remember that I am in law school. If you need someone for frequent, multi-hour, last-minute sessions, I may not be able to make time. I'm looking for students with a relatively stable schedule.

CANCELLATION POLICY: (Sorry if this sounds harsh, but I've had students no-show and need to make sure this is in writing; I understand things come up, and I am flexible so long as you give me as much notice as you can and are in contact with me.) Any lesson can be cancelled up to 24 hours ahead of time with no penalty. Cancellations due to illness permitted penalty-free up to two hours ahead of time. Any other reason, I will accept without penalty up to three hours before time the first time only. After that, I will bill one hour. Cancellations with less than two hours notice will be billed as a full lesson. Failure to show up to a lesson without explanation will be billed as a full lesson.

Bang For The Buck — I found Burton to be very respectful and sensitive to our needs. He listened intently as we described our situation and was quick to develop a plan of action in order to maximize the limited available time. Burton has a very disarming and pleasant personality. My daughter felt at ease during the tutoring session which allowed her to absorb the lesson. Burton is a bright young man who knows his sub ...
