About JD

Everyone should be given the knowledge, resources, and mentorship to reach their full potential. That's why I focus solely on the LSAT, spend my spare time developing robust LSAT resources, and treat all of my students as the unique individuals they are. I have personally conquered the LSAT, scoring a 178 on the actual test and routinely scoring a perfect 180 on official LSAT practice tests. While working with me you'll get the individualized attention of private tutoring along with all the resources of my LSAT prep company, Odyssey Test Preparation. I only work with a limited number of students to guarantee the absolute highest quality tutoring therefore tutoring space is limited.


My Official LSAT Stats:
- LSAT Score: 178 (99.9th percentile)
- Logic Games: Perfect score
- Reading Comprehension: Perfect score
- Logical Reasoning: 1 incorrect question within a section
Unofficial LSAT Stats:
- Routinely score a perfect 180 on practice tests

Even though I attained a great score on the actual LSAT, it took a lot of work to get there. My first practice test score was a 156 which I was able to increase to a 178 using intuitive and effective techniques. These are the techniques that I have refined over the years and teach to my students to help them get 20+ point score increases.

My LSAT Resume:
- Founder of Odyssey Test Preparation
- Creator of the Odyssey Online Logic Games Course
- Author of Odyssey Logic Games Coursebook
- Author of Odyssey Logical Reasoning Drillbook
- Author of Odyssey Reading Comprehension Pacebook
- Co-Creator of hundreds of self-study prep materials

WyzAnt is only a small fraction of my LSAT experience. So even though I have a few hundred LSAT hours logged on Wyzant, I have tens of thousands of hours of LSAT experience tutoring, teaching classes, and creating LSAT study material through my LSAT prep company. I live, eat, and breathe LSAT so that I can help my students achieve their goals!

LSAT Resources you get when working with me:
- Free 30 minute initial consultation*
- Free LSAT Prep books included with multi-hour packages
- Free Diagnostic Practice Test
- Personalized study plan
- Enrollment in the Odyssey Logic Games Course (Over 60 hours of Logic Games Prep)
- Virtual LSAT Proctor/Timer
- LSAT Practice Test Analyzer

While working with me, you get targeted 1-on-1 direction from a seasoned LSAT expert along with the resources of a large LSAT prep company. I look forward to working with you to substantially raise your LSAT score!

Online Students:
Making the online tutoring experience just as effective and personal as live tutoring is my specialty. While working together, we'll use Skype to get the face-to-face experience. I also work in front of a real whiteboard so that I can demonstrate the concepts visually to maximize your understanding. Many of my students prefer my style of online tutoring to live tutoring because it eliminates travel time to and from tutoring locations which allows them to dedicate more time to studying.

Approved subjects

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 specialize in LSAT prep and have developed proven strategies and numerous free resources (online LG course, LR+LG+RC books, flashcards) that allow my students to raise their scores by 20+points! I've even had students increase their LSAT score by as much as 32 points (from a 145-177).

Saved my LSAT score! — JD taught me how to do the logic section of the LSAT. When I first contacted him, I was scoring a 162 on practice tests. After 8 hours of tutoring over a couple of months, I scored ten points higher on the LSAT itself. This score (172) allows me to be an extremely competitive candidate for some of the best law schools in the nation. JD is extremely knowledgeable about the test; he was always well ...
