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!

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!

Forever grateful! Knowledgeable, Patient, you name it!

After one session with Mr. S., I felt as if my IQ grew a few increments higher. He gave me that much confidence and I understood his teaching! He is entirely patient and he goes over everything with you in intricate detail. His flash card method is stellar! I am honestly so blessed that he reached out when he did, I was honestly losing hope that I'd ever understand this LSAT of a beast.

Your search is over - Mr. S. is your next tutor

Dear Reader, I understand that you may be apprehensive about forking up a considerable deal of money for a tutor. You should be, as it is one of the most salient investments you will ever make. Fortunately, your search has come to an end now that you have found Mr. Scott S. The LSAT is not merely a game of techniques, tricks, tools, and the like (all of which he will expertly catechize), but requires you to fundamentally understand the stimulus in front of you. Fortunately, Mr S. teaches the LSAT as if he were the actual author of each exam. Of course, you can find “explanations” for virtually every LSAT question online. Unfortunately, that won’t improve your score. Mr. S. explains how and why to think about each question to the point at which you will be reading the exam as if you wrote it yourself. Naturally, no online program, class, forum, or living entity (whether it be a human tutor or LSAT demigod) can guarantee you a 180, and those who profess otherwise are lying. Recognizing that, Mr. S will force you to hit the apex of your scoring potential. Bereft of physically holding the next LSAT exam in your hands, Mr. S. is the best shot you will have at achieving your desired score. Perhaps the best part of his tutoring is that you will actually have fun learning the LSAT under. Armed with a beguiling personality and relaxed approach, he will teach you to gaze upon the next logic games section as a desired challenge rather than an agonizing test of your motivation to attend law school. As this review is in danger of becoming a ramble, I will now end with this: If you want to enjoy achieving your maximum score, sign up for a lesson with Mr. S. If you’d like to hate the next few months of your life as you struggle to underperform on the exam, look elsewhere. Mr. S. is a master of the LSAT, and he will make you one too (or at least as close as you personally are able to).

THE BEST

If you have a LSAT coming up and are freaking out because you feel as if your Kaplan Prep or other prep has NOT prepared you...STOP right here. It was the night before the November 2018 LSAT test and I was in a panic. I felt like my prep course had gotten me to a certain level, but not to the level I actually wanted (160-170 range). Something told me to peruse Wyzant and I am so glad I did. I came across Scott that evening and he was so kind as to respond to me, someone that wasn't even one of his students yet (the night before an official test!). He gave me some guidance which ultimately made me withdraw from the test because I knew I wanted to work with Scott before I ever sat down for the test...and boy was I right. Scott is the absolute best. His tricks and strategies are unlike anything I have ever learned in any prep course. From the first minute of the session with Scott, you are going to realize you made the right decision as your panic subsides...His course is structured and adaptable to you as an individual. Scott really takes into account the student, who they are, and what they want. Scott also makes the student realize that they are capable of anything, and that definitely begins to resonate in the scores...I immediately saw my PT scores rise after just one session with Scott...Something that had not happened since the plateau I experienced at Kaplan. Not to mention, I look forward to speaking with Scott. It is NOT something I dread but rather something I look forward to. I know that every minute with Scott is a minute that I incur more wisdom. In addition, Scott has a great sense of humor and is so kind...I can't help but smile throughout our entire session. I view Scott as a mentor. Scott has done so much for my score but he has done the most for my morale. Scott thank you for everything, I will be forever grateful. Thank you Wyzant for leading me to Scott!

LEGENDARY LSAT TUTOR. I HAVE TALKED TO MANY BUT WOULDN'T PREFER ANY BUT HIM

Scott is very patient with me. He is very good at explaining when I am wrong and reinforcing when I am right. He was very kind and knowledgeable. He knows the material on a very diverse scale.

Jasvin , 16 lessons with Scott

Amazing tutor! Very descriptive and patient with my questions! He is extremely knowledgeable!

At the moment he has increased my knowledge with logic games! I have already seen results with the handful of sessions we have had, and I know I will only get better! Great tutor!

Deborah, 4 lessons with Scott

Thorough and engaging teacher

Scott really helped me understand and separate LSAT answers and gave me great strategies for tackling the test. Scott has helped me cut down on time and to efficiently get through the questions.
