About Scott


Bio

After three satisfying careers (software engineer, public interest lawyer, and educational publisher), I left the big city to come home to the mountains of West Virginia. I am happy raising goats and chickens here at Storybook Farm, but I still want to share my love of law and logic with the next generation. That's why I tutor just one subject: the LSAT.

After three satisfying careers (software engineer, public interest lawyer, and educational publisher), I left the big city to come home to the mountains of West Virginia. I am happy raising goats and chickens here at Storybook Farm, but I still want to share my love of law and logic with the next generation. That's why I tutor just one subject: the LSAT.

Every lesson that I teach is tailored to my student, and I learn something new from every student that I teach. Whether you want to get your score up from 130 or beyond 170, I want to help. I don't use a "cookie cutter approach" with my students. I will help you design a study plan that is based on your strengths, weaknesses, limits and resources. We will start with whatever materials you have chosen, using the methods you know best. Together, we'll figure out how to achieve your goals in a personalized way that makes the most of your study habits, works around your work schedule, and maximizes your motivation. Think of me as a personal trainer for your brain.

Sounds good? It is. But don't just take my word for it. Take a minute to scroll through my reviews. Then invest one hour of your time (at no cost!) and we'll start designing your personal plan today. My initial "LSAT Inventory" session with every student is always free. My rates are high (due to extraordinary demand) but are not set in stone--if I think you have realistic goals and need my help to achieve them, we'll work together to come up with a plan you can afford.

This is your chance to spend an hour with a Harvard Law grad with decades of legal experience who is in the top one-tenth of one percent of all Wyzant tutors. I know how to help you ace the LSAT and I want to see your dreams come true. Let's get together and get started!

One week before the test and Scott helped me tremendously...

When thinking about what I could do with having just one week left until test day, I reached out to a couple of tutors in Wyzant explaining I just needed help with reading comprehension. Lucky for me, I found Scott and he provided me with insane methods and tricks to conquer reading comp. If you are in the position I was I recommend you sign up for a session with Scott.

Knowledgeable, patient, and extremely efficient.

Scott and I are working on nailing my timing down for all sections of the LSAT. I had previously taken prep-test classes through a major prep-test company, and was not having a lot of success. Scott has already shown me tools that I can use to improve my score. He is patient, kind, very understanding, and makes learning fun.

The Best LSAT Tutor

In just two sessions, Scott helped me with a strategy to figure out Inference questions. I used to dread the Reading Comprehension sections and now I feel much more confident in my ability to answer each question. Not only is Scott extremely knowledgable about the LSAT and great at teaching, he is also an incredibly kind and understanding tutor.

Great Instruction, Patient, Dedicated To Making It work

Scott is super patient and understanding. He truly makes it work with whatever schedule you have. Gives you the confidence you need to tackle an intimidating test such as the LSAT. He designs his explanations in a ways to make it extremely understanding!

Vanessa, 6 lessons with Scott

Very helpful

Through two lessons Scott has been extremely helpful in improving the ways at which I look at and dissect Q&A's in the RC section. From my first lesson with him I was able to decrease me incorrect answers, and I predict that his added advice will help continue that pattern. We are moving into the LR section and I am very confident that his future lessons will help minimize the time spent and incorrect thought paths that have previously led me to wrong answers. He provides me with thorough and specific feedback, but more importantly, help that can be utilized on vast portions of the test as well. I'm excited to continue my work with Scott and optimistic about my scores.

Knowledgeable and great sense of humor

He spoke about specific ways I need to look at a question type, which helped me increase my score by 3 points. He is very knowledgeable about the LSAT and I look forward to working with him.

The BEST LSAT Tutor in the world!

Scott is EXTREMELY knowledgeable about the LSAT and knows the best techniques to navigate it. I highly recommend him and would give him 6 stars out of 5 for how much he as helped me in just 2-3 lessons!

Ryaan, 3 lessons with Scott

Excellent tutor, advice well-tailored to your needs!

I came into the LSAT with a fairly high score but wanted to improve my score significantly to apply to top law schools. With Scott's help, I managed to do just that! He is an expert at the LSAT and will quickly and easily find and target your inefficiencies and weakest areas in order to help you maximize your improvement. Scott is very well-versed in the test and how to approach it, providing advice not just about particular sections of the exam but generally how best to approach it up to test day. I saw a huge improvement in my score on practice tests using Scott's methods and was able to apply that work on the day of the real thing itself. I highly recommend taking Scott's free session to figure out if he's the right choice for you. I'm sure he will be!
