I am an exceptionally qualified tutor, especially for LSAT, writing, admissions essays, public speaking, interviewing, and law. I have extensive teaching experience as a professor of law at Northeastern and Harvard Law School. I was voted Teacher of the Year in 2007 by the student body at Northeastern Law School. I graduated with honors from U.C. Berkeley and Harvard Law School. I am a published author (books, essays, scholarly articles, all laid out in my website) and have a lengthy record as a top-notch scholar. Aside from teaching and scholarship, I was an accomplished courtroom litigator, with considerable experience in capital punishment (I was lead counsel that led to the ending of capital punishment in New York). My communication skills are exemplary, which facilitates my ability to create a dynamic learning environment for students with a variety of learning styles.

Dan is excellent! I was hoping to get some suggestions for academic seminar presentations. Dan offered great advice for the delivery and for engaging the audience. I would highly recommend him for public speaking training.
Dan spent very little time diagnosing my points of struggle and tailored the full session to addressing those areas. He shared a few powerful methods of tackling LSAT questions and connected the thinking on the exam to the thinking a lawyer does in her job. Very helpful. I left with an entirely new set of powerful tools and a more determined mindset in my approach to logic games. I couldn't have imagined a more productive tutoring session!
Incredibly attentive to mechanics and the independent hardships of the student. Pin points direct needs. Truly get more from 2 hours of tutoring than 10-15 hours of self-studying!
He was incredibly patient and breaks things down in a way that is super easy to understand. He provides concrete strategies that are easy to follow as well as huge time savers. I look forward to more lessons with him as I improve my skill set and test taking strategies.
Dan is an excellent tutor, he is very knowledgeable in the material, he can easily explain it so you can understand it. He's also very patient and methodical. He is always on time.
Dan worked with me on Logic Games for the LSAT. I was shown ways of approaching questions I may not have considered without him and made more progress in two hours with his help than with eight on my own.
I took 3 lessons with Dan before I took the LSAT, and he was smart and friendly. He taught me strategies to help me focus on what's important and to answer questions more efficiently. Only wish I had planned this earlier so I could have dedicated more time to tutoring! Overall, I was happy with the sessions and felt like I learned much more than I would have by studying on my own.
He taught me what was important to focus on during each task at hand and how to improve my training so I could make my self study more efficient and worthwhile. He was patient and friendly and would highly encourage people to sign up for lessons with him.
In this session we focused on the logic games section. I was taught the proper way to attack a logic game. From first recognizing what type of game it is, to choosing the proper diagram, to applying the rules, and then finally making valid deductions. I would say an area that I need to improve on most is making deductions. Dan was really helpful, he has a tremendous understanding of the LSAT and can teach the material in a clear and helpful way.
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.
