Bio

Hello, I am Dr. Scott Sorenson. I obtained my JD magna cum laude from the University of Minnesota Law School in 2013 and practiced for several years as an attorney before obtaining my medical degree. I am now completing my medical residency. I scored a 176 on my LSAT (99th percentile) and have been tutoring ever since.

Hello, I am Dr. Scott Sorenson. I obtained my JD magna cum laude from the University of Minnesota Law School in 2013 and practiced for several years as an attorney before obtaining my medical degree. I am now completing my medical residency. I scored a 176 on my LSAT (99th percentile) and have been tutoring ever since.

Despite my wide training, I only tutor one subject - the LSAT. This is because I truly believe that the LSAT is unique among standardized tests in that a good tutor can add incredible value to a student's score.

Put simply, I know how to beat standardized tests. After law school I passed the California Bar Exam while working full time and studying nights and weekends. To do this I used the same strategies that helped me achieve a high score on the LSAT.

You score on the LSAT can have a huge impact on where you go to school or how much scholarship money you get. I also understand that students are busy people. Therefore, my goal is simple - to help you improve your score as quickly as possible.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

LSAT Tutor

He did a great job at tailoring his teaching to how I learn best! He always came with a great attitude and was very encouraging as I continued my studies. He also was very flexible with location and time which helped me out a lot.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Scott was gracious with his time, patient with me while I learned new concepts, and took my needs as a learner in to consideration. He is an effective tutor, and someone who I felt was honest and open with me. I will definitely be utilizing his services again.

Great Logic games tutor

Scott was great at teaching me time saving techniques in writing the rules and attacking questions in the games. He started by having me go through my usual process and explain each step to him. He then showed me how to add inferences into my rules to create better limited diagrams.

Great Tutor

Scott helped me in certain areas where I was struggling on the LSAT, he also gave me practice material for my own individual practice that has been extremely beneficial. I improved on logic games and flaw questions on the logical reasoning portion of the LSAT in part due to Scott. Simply put, without Scott’s guidance on the LSAT I would most likely be scoring in the higher 150’s rather than the mid 160’s.

Improvement without anxiety

Scott helped me address my weakness in Logical Reasoning on the LSAT. After getting -10 on both LSAT LR on my first attempt, he we through practice test questions with me to 1) identify why the right answer was right, 2) identify why the wrong answers were wrong, and 3) explore why I chose a certain wrong answer in order to correct my approach/thinking. We also coded my wrong answers into categories of flawed thinking so I could see patterns in my logic. Overall, he helped me consistently get -3 to -6 on LR practice tests, which is a good improvement for one month of lessons. I ended up getting -7 and -8 on LR for the second test but still saw an improvement in score. Scott definitely helped me improve my LR and without performance anxiety issues I am certain it would have been even better.

Patient, encouraging, and efficient tutor.

Scott tutored me in the physics portion of the MCAT. In addition to explaining the math to me, he made sure that I understood the concepts behind it. He also helped me target my future studying by discussing which topics would be higher yield. I went up 2 points in that section after our session.
