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

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 and thereafter tutoring of the LSAT, on which I scored in the 99th percentile.

LSAT

I scored a 175 on the LSAT, have helped over 300 students prepare for the test, and am committed to the success of those who are on board and prepared to work hard to generate positive results. I've guided students to several 170+ results, with 173, 175 (x2) and 176 as my students' top scores. Some of my highest performing students (including some who scored in the high 160s) have achieved acceptance to one or more top US law schools - including UC Berkeley and Harvard University during the 2020/2021 cycle - and have the improved critical thinking skills required to succeed in law school.

An outstanding tutor

I first met with Shane after taking the LSAT once and underperforming relative to my score level. Now, after seeing Shane for only 3 months, I scored a 175 in April, an 8 point increase from my last LSAT. Shane was critical to my success and helped me create a study schedule with drills and exercises that were effective. I soon learned from Shane that the key to increasing your LSAT score is to study smarter, not harder. Shane was so understanding, kind, and patient during our lessons and was great at going over practice tests with me. I could not recommend Shane enough!!!

Fantastic Mentor!

I worked with Shane for about two months and was able to break through a plateau I'd been struggling with for six months. He always gave his best effort and helped me to identify and work through key areas of improvement. I would highly suggest Shane for whatever stage you are in your studying, as he will be guaranteed to match your commitment to excelling at this exam and beyond.

Personalized, astute, and highly skilled LSAT prep

Shane vastly improved my LSAT score through personalized tutoring. He was always extremely helpful and patient, and he helped me to fix numerous issues with my understanding of each section. He gave me various techniques and tools to improve my understanding of the exam, and I learned very much. He is an amazing choice for anyone wishing to do well on their exams.

LSAT Tutoring Session

Shane helped me with understanding how to diagram logic games and to properly organize my question. It helped my slow myself down and not be too nervous about my tests. I hope to continue more sessions with Shane.

Shane makes lessons fun!

Shane helped me increase my LSAT score by 6 points in 7 weeks. I had studied with the PowerScore Bibles, LSAT Trainer, and Khan Academy for months but had hit a plateau. I was particularly struggling with Logic Games. After several logic games sessions with Shane, it consistently became my highest scoring section. He is patient, explains concepts well, and makes lessons fun. I liked that he provided a study schedule to keep you on track while also holding yourself accountable.

An excellent LSAT tutor

Shane is an excellent LSAT tutor. He is very knowledgable, patient, and kind. He has a strong conceptual understanding of the skills that the LSAT tests, as well as how to develop a robust plan for study each week. He emphasizes the importance of keeping a balance between LSAT studying, other obligations, and time for yourself. I had already done a good amount of prep before starting with Shane. When I started working with him, we jumped right in and quickly found the areas I was ready to develop skills in.

Solid Tutor and very knowledgeable

Shane G. did great with preparing me for my LSAT with time constraints. I had 4 sessions with Shane and I felt significantly more confident. He forced me to prepare and taught me how to tackle specific questions I struggled with. He is great at what he does!

Great teacher and SO helpful for LSAT prep!!

Shane was great to work with and always was very attentive during all of our lessons. He helped me score consistently 10+ points higher than what I was scoring before. I came to him initially for help with RC and later for LR. Before I started with Shane I had completed a different prep course for the April 2021 LSAT and received an okay score. I worked with Shane for 6 weeks for this past June LSAT and he really was able to help clarify and explain different methodologies in a clearer way. He’s very patient and if you don’t understand something at first he’s able to explain a concept in multiple different ways to help you understand. Would highly recommend him for anyone who’s prepping for the LSAT.

Great LSAT Tutor

I had a great experience working with Shane. He was very helpful in pinpointing my strengths and weaknesses and creating lessons tailored to them. He also pointed me to other resources that greatly helped improve my score. I also enjoyed the weekly personalized homework schedules to keep me on track. Before tutoring with Shane, I had been consistently stuck at the same score but after a few weeks I started to see point increases. I am now almost to my target score!
