University of Minnesota Law School (J.D.)
I'm Scott. I graduated from UC Davis and obtained my JD magna cum laude from the University of Minnesota Law School. I have practiced for several years as an attorney and am now pursuing my MD. I am an experienced tutor, having taught a range of subjects including foreign language, science, and math. Currently I am focused on helping students who wish to achieve high scores on the LSAT and MCAT. I am well qualified to tutor these tests, having scored a 176 on the LSAT (99th percentile), a 520 on the MCAT (98th percentile) and achieved a 4.0 GPA in the MCAT subjects (chemistry, biology, and physics, and biochemistry).
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 high scores on the LSAT and MCAT.
I understand that scoring high on your LSAT or MCAT can have a huge effect on your chances of matriculating to the school of your dreams. I also understand that students are busy people. Therefore, my goal is simple - to help you improve your score as quickly as possible. My tutoring is always focused on finding the holes in my student's knowledge, without wasting time on the unnecessary or the low-yield topics.

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.
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.
I took several logic-based courses in undergraduate. I obtained a 99th percentile score on the LSAT, a heavily logic-based test. I then graduated magna cum laude from the University of Minnesota law school, the best law school in the state and one of the top 20 in they country. I have been a practicing attorney for 3 years which required me to use logic every day.
