Thank you for considering me as your tutor! Preparing for a test like the LSAT is an overwhelming task for many people, especially when balanced alongside other responsibilities in life, but choosing the right tutor can smooth out the process considerably. I am highly accustomed to working with students at various points in their LSAT prep: some students come to me to fine tune shortly before their test while others work with me for 3+ months to work from the ground up.

I have over 5 years of tutoring experience and currently specialize in designing and maintaining personalized prep for my students, and in doing so, I take into account individual circumstances. The pace of lessons - for example - is determined by many factors, such as timeline, student ability, student temperament, and lesson frequency. That said, although I am flexible within lessons, I heavily emphasize a structured and methodical overall approach.

GRE

Regarding the GRE, I scored 169/170 on the quantitative section and 165/170 on the verbal section, which puts me in the 96th percentile of test takers for each section. (The 334/340 combined score falls at or around the 99th percentile.) I also scored a 5.0/6.0 on the analytical writing section - landing me in the 93rd percentile for that section. I have an extensive background tutoring math up to and including pre-calculus and have also worked with about 20 LSAT students within the past few years; this diverse teaching experience helps me adjust to each student's needs and has prepared me well to help students of differing backgrounds and talents tackle the GRE.

Logic

Logic

I am qualified in logic - generally - given my minor in philosophy completed at Boston College in May 2015. I am qualified - specifically - given my course grade "A" in the course "Logic", which I completed during my third year of study. In addition to this introductory course, I earned an "A-" in the course "Charles S. Pierce", which (as the name suggests) was dedicated to the study of American logician Charles S. Pierce. I have since continued to study logic, largely in preparation for the October 2015 LSAT, on which I scored in the 90th percentile.

First Lesson

Shane helped me accomplish that fear of failing at obtaining my best score. He put it in simpler terms and elaborated on things i never really considered. I feel much more confident about my Reading Comprehension already and we have only had one session!

Corey, 4 lessons with Shane

Personalized work load and great results!

Shane provided me with the entirety of my LSAT training from textbooks to specialized drills nearing my test date. I really appreciated his attention to my specific problem areas and strengths. He provides individualized lesson plans with great structure! Highly recommend if you want to improve your score and be competitive for top law school admissions.

Kind, Professional, and Invaluable

It's difficult to know what resources and roads to follow when it comes to LSAT preparation and practice. Prior to working with Shane, I had been doing self-study that was largely without focus and oblivious to much. Shane was the exact person I needed to put me on the right track. Shane has an expertise and intimate knowledge of not only the ins and outs of the test and tricks of the trade, but of how to prepare - the ways to structure your studying, how to measure and keep track of work, and how to manage the mental aspects of the test. My preptests scores improved markedly (10 points) while working with Shane over the course of two months, using his drills and direction to help me improve my study. This would not have been possible without him, as prior to our lessons I had plateaued and felt completely stuck. I would recommend Shane to anyone seeking help on the LSAT, even and especially those who are already scoring well but want to take it to the next level. He is a kind, instructive, and receptive tutor and I am very grateful for his guidance.

Organized, Patient, & Knowledgeable

I can speak for almost anyone who has worked with Shane when I say that he is an incredible tutor. One quality I really appreciate about Shane is how accommodating he is to a student's learning style. I am personally a slow learner and after our first lesson, I recognized that the pace of our lesson was too fast for me. I emailed Shane about it and the next lesson he was able to teach in a way that worked best for me. This shows how attentive Shane is to students' learning needs. Shane is very knowledgeable about the LSAT and he presents strategies in a clear way. I feel a lot more confident with the LSAT, thanks to Shane. I highly recommend.

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor

I worked with Shane for a few months leading up to my LSAT, and it was an incredibly helpful decision! I was scoring in the mid to high 160s on my practice tests, but Shane helped me develop new study techniques and strategies to get into the 170s. I would highly recommend reaching out to Shane if you are looking for a tutor that can answer specific questions about the LSAT but also develop holistic study habits to get consistent, improved results.

Kimberly, 11 lessons with Shane

Amazing LSAT Tutor

After only two lessons with Shane, my LSAT score improved by 3 points!!! If you're looking to improve your LSAT score, look no further; Shane is organized, attentive and patient. He identified my weak areas and helped me figure out what I was doing wrong. I was stuck at the same score for months and felt like giving up. I'm so happy I found Shane!

Fantastic Tutor!

Shane is great at altering lessons for student's needs and weaknesses! His strategies and sources are unlike any other as well. I highly recommend him for everything LSAT!

Taryn, 12 lessons with Shane

Meticulous and methodical

Shane's approach to tutoring the LSAT aligns very well with my needs. We are able to cover a wide range of material each lesson without it feeling overwhelming. He also communicates very clearly and effectively.
