Hello! My name is Max Y. I’m the #1 rated LSAT tutor on Wyzant's platform. 100% of my reviews are 5 stars, with 1,000’s of hours of experience tutoring the LSAT. Unlike most others, I ONLY tutor the LSAT.

My students have scored as high as 177 and receive merit scholarships from the top law schools in the world, including University of Chicago, Columbia, NYU, Penn, Duke, Cornell, Georgetown, UCLA, and many more.

After raising my LSAT score from a 154 to a 175, I was accepted to NYU, Northwestern, UCLA, and USC. I was offered over $1,000,000 in scholarships, including full rides from multiple top 20 law schools.

After thousands of hours tutoring the LSAT, I’ve yet to meet a single student who spends enough time reviewing their practice tests. Most people take a test, get a score lower than they were hoping for, and close their books for the day out of frustration. And those that do review their mistakes often excuse them for the wrong reasons: “Oh, that was just a stupid mistake. It’s so obvious why it was D.”

No, it’s not obvious. If it was obvious, you would’ve gotten it right. You missed the question because you didn’t understand it. But that’s OK! The test writers are good at what they do. You just need to hold yourself accountable and figure out what to do differently next time.

After writing over 1,000 explanations to real LSAT questions, I realized their immense value for anyone trying to master the test. I started having all my students write out their own explanations and the positive results have been clear and convincing.

That’s why I formalized my approach and developed the LEARN methodology. The steps below will help you hold yourself accountable, organize your study schedule, and ensure you maximize the value of each practice test you take:

L = LSAT SECTION. Hold yourself strictly to the time limit. Don’t look up the correct answers. Since you don’t know your score yet, you’ll still have the motivation to spend time reviewing your work.

E = EXPLAIN. For each question, write out an explanation

Incredibly patient and insightful tutor!

I can't imagine anyone having more insight into the LSAT than Max. He was able to give me very specific strategies to apply to the problems I struggle with, and even after one session, I feel much more competent and confident. He has a wonderful way of working through the problems step-by-step so you're able to really understand the logic and thought process. Cannot recommend Max enough--he is, without a doubt, the tutor you need!

Great First Lesson!

Let me first start off by saying that I am so excited for what is to come knowing that I have found such a knowledgeable tutor. Although Max is knowledgeable and insightful, he isn’t intimidating. I enjoyed my first lesson with Max and am very excited to continue having lessons with him.

Professional and Efficient

I just started getting tutored by Max and I am very impressed by his efficiency and professionalism. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for structure and help studying for an upcoming test!

10/10, Awesome! Accommodating, personal, and helpful tutor!

Max really helped me iron out my issues with the LSAT’s Logical Reasoning and Reading Comprehension sections. He’s the man, and my only regret is that I couldn’t sit for more sessions with him! Highly recommend!

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.

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!
