About James


Bio

I gather this is where I am supposed to tell you how great I am. Alas, I've never taken to self-aggrandizement like a fish to water. So, let me just tell you how I got here!

Once upon a time, back in the mid 1990s, I started teaching SAT, GRE, GMAT, and LSAT classes for the Princeton Review. My high SAT, GRE, and LSAT scores landed me that job. Though I had previously shied away from getting in front of groups of people (I'm more of a bookworm), I discovered to some astonishment that I was...

I gather this is where I am supposed to tell you how great I am. Alas, I've never taken to self-aggrandizement like a fish to water. So, let me just tell you how I got here!

Once upon a time, back in the mid 1990s, I started teaching SAT, GRE, GMAT, and LSAT classes for the Princeton Review. My high SAT, GRE, and LSAT scores landed me that job. Though I had previously shied away from getting in front of groups of people (I'm more of a bookworm), I discovered to some astonishment that I was actually quite good at teaching. After going back to school to study the ancient Maya at Yale (where I was a Fulbright Scholar and a Getty Scholar) I started teaching LSAT and GMAT again eleven years ago, beginning with a company (Educational Testing Consultants) that provides classes through university continuing education programs. The past five years I have also tutored dozens of individual students, mostly for the LSAT and GRE, mostly one-on-one, and mostly online. I have also taught more than a dozen LSAT classes.

My approach to teaching varies from student to student--everything is customized--though I do emphasize fundamentals. I have had MANY students, especially LSAT students, who came away from classes or previous tutors poorly served on the fundamentals. But if a student just needs some fine-tuning, fine-tuning it is!. My primary concern is to meet the needs of the student. In session, students find me energetic with a dry sense of humor, occasionally punctuated by the occasional bit of sarcasm regarding authority and institutions.

When I am not teaching, I am a serious mostly-amateur photographer (I've sold my work at art fairs, but photography remains a net drain on my bank account!) and a woodworker. My current woodworking project is experimental archaeology, in which I am working on reproductions of ancient Egyptian wood artifacts.

A very high score on the LSAT helped me land a job with the Princeton Review, for which I taught LSAT classes before returning to graduate school.

Insightful & helpful

James helped me to improve my techniques and approach towards the LSAT logical reasoning games. He demonstrated his methodology on a few difficult examples in a way that was easy to replicate and will transfer over on the actual test. Would fully endorse
