What Sets Me Apart
1) Consistently high score increases. Other tutors quite simply cannot show consistent double-digit score increases. My students understand the LSAT so intimately, 20+ point score increases are normal. I'm able to achieve such consistently high score increases with my students because I personalize my teaching and curriculum to adjust for my students' individual strengths and weaknesses. These score increases have gotten my students into amazing schools like Yale, Harvard, and NYU. You can too.
2) Copyrighted test strategies invented by me. I have developed test strategies that make taking the test a breeze. You will not find these anywhere else, because they were invented and copyrighted by me. These special strategies are a major part of why my students are so successful. You will find that many tutors are ex-instructors from major test prep companies and they merely regurgitate their former employer's methods. Pay for real content.
3) A true reading comprehension method. Many test prep companies will tell you to pay attention to the subject matter of the passage or to skim or read the test questions first. All of these suggestions are misguided. Why do they say these things? Because they don't have a real method to teach. My method for tackling the reading comprehension section was also invented by me. If you're considering other tutors, ask them about their reading comprehension method. They don't have one. Why pay $200 an hour when the tutor can't even help you with an entire section of the LSAT?
4) Real background in education. What other tutors are too embarrassed to admit is that they fell into tutoring because they couldn't find a job. That's quite simply it. My background is in education. Before law school, I had experience teaching middle-schoolers and took college courses in education. I had a passion for teaching before law school and I committed to it afterwards. Don't you want a real teacher, not someone who fell into it?
5) I care about your progress. From my student who scored 125 on her initial diagnostic test to my student who went to Yale Law School after achieving his 174 with me (after Kaplan failed him), I care about eliciting the absolute best performance from you.
6) No classes. I do not teach classes, even though my students have suggested it to me. Why? Because I have seen too many students fail in the traditional test prep 3-month class structure. As an educator, if you see a structure failing your students, why would you reproduce it? Perhaps I'll teach tiny classes with a longer timeframe in the future, but for now, personalized 1-on-1 teaching is what works. I will not do anything that compromises my students and is merely about making more money. I want to teach with integrity.
7) Personalized professional service. I will come to meet you, whether it's on your school campus or your home. You should learn where it's convenient and comfortable for you. Other tutors force you to come to their office or home. You shouldn't have to schlep to Brooklyn when you live in Washington Heights! I am a true teacher at heart, so my coming to you is not a problem at all.
8) I make the LSAT fun. My students often say that studying for the LSAT was fun. Why? Because real teaching is about real learning, and real learning is an enjoyable and empowering experience. Real teachers can make you want to learn anything, and that is who I am.
