About Lauren

In 2009, I self-studied for the LSAT and went from a 159 on my first practice test (and as low as 151 on another prep test) to a 173 on test day. I informally tutored a friend preparing for the LSAT, and I think I could be of help to other people as well. Rather than teaching a bunch of gimmicks that may or may not work the way the test prep companies do, my approach is to take a look at questions you are having trouble with and help you figure out the best way to approach it. This is how I taught myself and I think it will work for you as well.

I am in law school now and did very well my first semester, so I am also available to tutor on 1L subjects. Additionally, I have strong computer skills and have experience teaching people how to use Microsoft Office and other software.

I also have experience editing papers, including an article written by a professor, as well as resumes, cover letters, and blog posts. I have very strong grammar and spelling skills and believe I could be of use to anyone struggling with English class or looking for help with his or her writing.

I have tutoring experience in other subjects, so please ask if there's a subject I have not listed.

I look forward to seeing how I can be of help to you!

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.

Bar Exam

I studied for and passed the two hardest bar exams in the country, New York and California, both on the first try. I have many hours of experience tutoring law students, including working on strong exam answers.

I am admitted to practice law in New York and California, and have been practicing for three years. I graduated cum laude from NYU School of Law in 2013.

Services I can provide include editing practice essays and practice skills tests, explaining issues you are struggling with, helping you memorize vast amounts of information in a short time period, and going over MBE questions. I prepared for the NY and CA bar exams with two different test prep companies, so I got to see two different approaches and figure out which methods were the best.

LSAT

I took the LSAT in December 2010 and got a 173. I am now a practicing attorney and graduate of NYU School of Law.

Political Science

I graduated magna cum laude from American University with a B.A. in political science. I worked in the political department of a labor union in Washington, DC for several years after college.
