About Trisha

While a law student, I trained to become an LSAT instructor and effectively tutored students on the LSAT. I graduated from HLS in 2012 and passed the bar exam on my first try that same year.

Prior to law school, I was a high school teacher in Los Angeles, teaching history (including AP US History). I have attended CollegeBoard teacher training on AP US History methods, and am qualified to prepare students for the AP US History exam, and otherwise offer tutoring and insight on other history courses.

I enjoy tutoring and enabling students to pursue their passions (whether it is gaining admission to the law school of their dreams or just passing a history class that is challenging), and find it rewarding when everything clicks for a student through diligent and faithful use of our methods.

I passed the California Bar, July 2012; and scored in the 99th percentile on the LSAT.

I am a former California single subject teaching credential holder in Social Studies, and former teacher of world history, US History, and AP US History at a Los Angeles area high school.

Approved subjects

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.

Bar Exam

I took Barbri, a nationally recognized bar exam test preparation course. During Barbri, I completed all of the test modules. I additionally used the Kaplan study materials for the MPRE. I took the California bar exam in July 2012 and passed on my first try. In addition, I have a solid black letter law course background from my time at Harvard Law School, taking courses tested on the California bar exam beyond those required in the first year, such as Trusts & Estates, Professional Responsibility, Constitutional Law, Family Law, and Corporations.

LSAT

I scored a 171 on the LSAT, which helped me attend Harvard Law School.

Social Studies

I held a California single subject teaching credential (now expired) for social studies, which includes all forms of history, psychology, sociology, government, economics, etc. I taught in a California high school for two years in history. In addition, I hold a degree in sociology.
