30+ YEAR KAPLAN LSAT EXPERT.
JEOPARDY! TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS WINNER.
PROFESSIONAL WRITER AND EDITOR.
I proudly claim that no one is better fitted, or surer, to help you achieve your LSAT dream.

EXPERIENCE: I was the mind, face, and voice of Kaplan LSAT preparation for many years. Having figured out the LSAT "inner calculus,", I was put in charge of the Kaplan classroom and tutoring programs. Over the years I have kept a laser-like focus on test content and format, as well as the winning strategies and tactics that combine to create high scorers.

Between my live classroom teaching, my hundreds of large group events across the country, and my contributions to printed test materials both private and retail, it is safe to say that in several decades, no single individual, anywhere, has influenced more LSAT aspirants than myself. I also pioneered in online teaching and tutoring, so you know I know what I'm doing in front of the camera and mic.

JEOPARDY! SUCCESS: Totally relevant. I have proved that I not only can perform under pressure, but can keep my cool in the toughest situations. I will show you how to do all of that as you face THE test that will determine your career path.

PASSION FOR COACHING: I want you to sit down at that e-tablet with utter confidence and determination, already KNOWING that you are going to kick its butt. The only remaining question is, how hard will you kick it? You can detect one of my students by the ease with which they carry themselves, and by what was once called "the eye of the tiger," meaning they stride in as if victory were already assured.

You CAN master all three sections (and the Writing Sample, if you want my foolproof plan for that as well). You CAN learn how to own Logic Games. You CAN learn to attack Reading Comp. with a sense of confidence and (yes!) even fun. You CAN go in knowing exactly what each LR question is testing, and how to conquer it. I can even take your admissions process in hand, and show you how to write a killer personal statement that will sell you

LSAT

Having created Kaplan's LSAT program in the '90s, I am now available for expert, empathetic, encouraging 1:1 LSAT coaching. I combine my unparalleled experience in LSAT analysis and teaching with a strong background in learning science, to offer lessons, drills, feedback, and advice that will catapult anyone's LSAT performance, painlessly and quickly, whether in-person in the New England area or online (20 years' online tutoring experience). If there's a problem with any aspect of the LSAT--content, tactics, or mindset--I have encountered it and can fix it. And as a former Jeopardy! champ I know first-hand how to rise above stress and perform in the stratosphere. You can achieve the score you're looking for. Let me show you how.

Extremely Knowledgeable Tutor!

Bob is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He was accommodating to my studying strengths and weaknesses and was able to tailor his style to meet my own. I would recommend him to any prospective LSAT-taker. Also, overall, Bob is a very fun time and will keep you on your toes with his intelligence and humor.

Contagious Confidence

I came to Bob less than a week before I took my LSAT Flex exam. I had self-studied up to that point and I felt good about my abilities, but wanted to make sure I was a able to prepare and execute at the highest level in these crucial last few days. Bob provided me some excellent advice about my mindset, tips from literal Olympians he had tutored about the importance of a warm-up routine, and useful information about how the test-makers construct the exam. Most importantly, his confidence rubbed off on me. Bob has unparalleled experience and expertise, forged in decades of work at the top of the industry. I attribute much of the mental shift I experienced in the days leading up to my test date to him, and so too my score of a 176. I was able to hit near the top of my testing range due to perfection of all the small things. I enjoyed working with Bob so much that I’ve taken his advice (and given him my money) to improve my writing sample.

Unmatched

Bob can take anyone, from beginners to seasoned lsat preppers, and take them to their goal and beyond. His energy keeps me actively participating throughout every session, and despite the numerous issues I have come across throughout my 2 months with him, he has always presented an effective solution. You put in the time/effort and he will lead you to success. He is knowledgeable about every section, so you’re in beyond good hands when it’s comes to LSAT preparation. Perhaps the most important factor of his coaching is the mental aspect. Bob not only trains you to do the proper mechanical functions for certain questions but empowers you to take control of the test and make it your own. With a test that is so demanding and prep that can be filled with a lot of negative emotions at times, Bob helps you stay hungry, ruthless, and unwavering in the face of obstacles. If you want your law school dreams to become a reality, choose Bob.

This man knows what he’s talking about!

Makes sure to understand what level you are at and what questions you have. Goes into detail on how to improve on what you already know. Definitely looking forward to having him as my tutor!

Caring and extremely knowledgable tutor

Bob helped me completely change my mindset about the LSAT and truly motivated me to attack the test in a way that I never had before. His experience and tactics for reading comprehension were incredibly helpful and I always felt as if he genuinely cared about me not just as a student but as a person. Great man and I would recommend his services to anyone!

Thoughtful and Efficient Tutor

Bob is an excellent tutor who carefully tailors lessons to his students’ respective skill sets so as not to waste anyone’s time, money, or energy. He is a joy to work with and always leaves me feeling encouraged.

Jane, 16 lessons with Bob

Upbeat teacher. Passionate about improving your score

Bob is great at breaking down the Lsat language so that your scores can improve . For many of us , the test is sort of like a foreign language . Bob is great at making the sections understandable so that your confidence can improve with attacking the test. The mechanics that he gives you surely cracks the Lsat Language code to improve scores

Incredibly experienced, low BS, perfect for building both skill and confidence

With a wealth of experience, including having seen every single LSAT question to date, Bob taught me a tremendous amount. I came in very frustrated both with myself and the test, questioning if I could even improve given I had taken over 20 practice tests already. I knew that I needed guidance, concretely in terms of strategies for approaching the test, but also in terms of developing a mindset. The latter especially paid off, as through my sessions with Bob and his blunt-but-effective methods, I found myself actually improving--dare I say even enjoying tackling the challenges of the test. Thanks Bob, for all the help.

A coach and motivator

After a session with Bob, I find myself looking forward to practicing the LSAT and am extremely motivated to sit down and do the work using the tips he gave me. I’ve been looking for my coach and this is him! I am looking forward to the next session.

Haley, 10 lessons with Bob

Great tutor, worth every penny.

Bob tutored me for the LSAT for about 4 months and during that time he helped me develop a complete and thorough understanding of the test. Before studying with Bob I scored a 158/180 on the LSAT but after working with Bob I improved almost 20 points and scored a 176/180; a feat I attribute in no small part to Bobs mastery of this test and his ability to teach this mastery to others. I highly recommend working with Bob and am confident that you will see tremendous growth during your time with him.
