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.

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.
