About Ian

My name is Ian. I am originally from Buffalo, NY. I am a 27 year old recent graduate of George Washington University Law School. I graduated from Williams College with a BA in Economics in 2009. I scored a 170 out of 180 on my LSAT, and a 1500 (710 math, 790 verbal) out of 1600 on the SAT.

While at Williams College I tutored freshmen in Economics. I also tutored high school students in the SAT during the summer in Buffalo. My approach to tutoring is that anyone can learn a concept or a fact so long as it is framed properly in their mind. Using appropriate analogies or relatable examples are excellent ways to enable a student to visualize and remember a concept. Most of all, the tutoring experience should be enjoyable for the student: they should be encouraged to exercise their curiosity and should not be afraid to make mistakes.
