Knowledgeable and professional

Max is not only an excellent tutor but also someone who really cares about your progress and wants you to succeed to your highest potential. We had around 15 lessons and in those times he personalized the way that he taught the material to the way that I understand it best and allowed me to boost my score exponentially. It’s really clear that Max is very talented in what he teaches and he’s the best tutor that I’ve ever had for anything. The LSAT for me was the most important exam for me to do well on in my academic career and he allowed me to exceed my own expectations of my potential and help me secure a position at a top law school. I would recommend Max to anyone that needs an LSAT tutor because he will definitely get you there.

Knowledgeable and consistent tutor

Max has been a great resource for me throughout this process. He takes an individualized approach to each session tailoring the material to areas where I need work. He's smart, patient, and takes a genuine interest in my success. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for tutoring help.

Christopher, 7 lessons with Max

Amazing Tutor!

Max is an awesome tutor and is extremely helpful in navigating the LSAT and overall law school admissions process. He is very eager to help you improve your score, and you can tell that he genuinely cares about your success. Before tutoring with Max, I was scoring in the low-to-mid 150s, and I now score in the mid-160s. Max helped me develop better strategies for Logic Games and really shifted the way that I was perceiving many Logical Reasoning questions. He also is especially good at Reading Comprehension! Max is very patient and understanding, and he’ll always make sure you understand a topic before moving on. I am very appreciative for Max’s guidance and would recommend him to anyone seeking help with the LSAT.

Kind and competent

Max is a decent man who cares about helping you and dials in. For each weakness he gave me SPECIFIC advice that immediately helped. That’s crucial in a good tutor. I’m glad he was recommended to me and I would trust him again to be worth the money. Thank you, Max!

ACT tutoring

It is amazing. My daughter just had 6 session with Max within a two week time period. Her ACT score jumped from 34 to 36, which is absolutely out of expectation. Max is the one tutoring strategies rather than providing solutions or explanations. Highly recommend!

Kell, 6 lessons with Max

Awesome!

Max has been an incredible tutor. He is smart, methodical, and offers realistic but encouraging advice. He’s shared great tips and tricks to help me crack open the test. Would highly recommend.

Dena, 9 lessons with Max

Engaging and Amazing Tutor

Max really helped to reshape my study efforts. I noticed a tremendous difference in just one day. He gives realistic feedback, suggestions, and goals. All of which have meant so much more to me than any LSAT prep book/course. He is an engaged and very talented tutor. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. It was a totally worthwhile experience!

Terrin, 6 lessons with Max

Personable and supportive tutor

Max helped me improve on specific aspects of my test taking strategies, which helped to boost my score. He is very knowledgeable about ACT strategies and tricks that would be difficult to learn on your own, and teaches them in a clear and concise way that is easy to implement. I’d highly recommend him as a tutor!

Zoe, 5 lessons with Max
