About JD

I exclusively teach the techniques and strategies to conquer the LSAT. I have spent over 5 years perfecting my methods and have taught thousands of students how to dramatically raise their LSAT scores. One of the highest score increases that a student of mine has attained was 32 points (from a 145-177). It is pretty typical that my students increase their score between 20-25 points if they work extremely diligently. I am upbeat and motivated to help you get into the law school of your dreams!

I only take on a limited number of students at one time to guarantee that each of my students get the absolute highest quality tutoring experience. Consequently 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

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
- Chief Executive Officer of EveryLSAT
- Author of 6 LSAT prep books
- Creator of the Odyssey Online Logic Games Course
- Co-Creator of hundreds of EveryLSAT 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 companies. 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 Diagnostic Practice Test
- Personalized study plan
- Enrollment in the Odyssey Logic Games Course (Over 60 hours of Logic Games Prep)
- Virtual LSAT Proctor/Timer

While working with me, you get targeted 1-on-1 direction from a seasoned LSAT expert along with the resources of 2 LSAT prep companies. 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 are in bold.

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.


Teaching the LSAT is my specialty and I'm honored to work with so many great students. Hopefully we can work toward your goal LSAT score together.

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 ...
