I live and breathe for helping students. I was doing it before I went to law school, I did it during law school, and I’ve done it every day since–for my entire career. And one of the things I pride myself on the most is being real.
Instead of the same old cookie-cutter approach that many law prep services use, I teach you ACADEMIC SUCCESS METHODOLOGY: a multidisciplinary process that applies proven methods from learning science and cognitive behavioral research to your law school learning, explaining to you along the way exactly how and why they work. But I don’t stop there.
A lot of people out there will tell you they can help you because they went to law school and they were successful…but I didn’t just go to law school–I worked for a law school.
I know exactly what it takes for you to succeed because I’ve seen the business of legal education from the inside, warts and all. I take that exclusive insider knowledge and give it to you straight, including critical information that you deserve to know, but law schools will never tell you–because knowledge is power.
A lot of students who are struggling in law school will think about getting a tutor, but often, tutoring isn’t actually what they need.
Tutoring works best when it is on objective subject matter–where there’s a definite right answer. That’s why it isn’t as effective for law school, which is all about subjective analysis.
Have you ever heard someone say, “I don’t understand how I got the grade I did–I studied so hard and I knew that material cold”? Most law students know the material; that isn’t the problem. It’s taking that material and using it that is the challenge. That’s because when it comes to legal education, how you show what you know is equally as important as the information you are studying.
Where tutoring services typically focus on trying to teach you the law itself, I use the law to coach you in the most effective way to learn, retain, use and apply what you’re being taught in law school instead. Learning science methods pay dividends because you don’t just succeed in class: you also remember more of what you learned in law school as you head into bar review and as you practice as a lawyer.
I wasn’t a rockstar 1L. I didn’t get *horrible* grades my first semester of law school, but they definitely weren’t what I was used to getting and I wasn’t at the top of the class. Back when I was in law school, we didn’t have someone like me working to help students, so I had to pick myself up, dust myself off, and get to work figuring things out all on my own–so I know how that feels.
Now that I’m on the other side of the equation, I use what I’ve learned professionally, pair it with my own personal experiences as a student and the experiences of countless students I’ve helped, and put it to work for you.
I walk you through what to do and how to do it in a practical way that is easy to follow, understand, and apply. I teach the students who work with me how to learn more efficiently, study more impactfully, write more effectively, and supercharge their exam performance.
There’s nothing more satisfying for me than seeing students who take my advice improve and excel. I love to watch you sail right past all my old mistakes or successfully execute a plan to turn things around.
