Qualifications & Experience

I am a law school graduate with 10 years experience tutoring a variety of subjects. I specialize in the LSAT, GRE, and GMAT, but also tutor some academic subjects and SAT/ACT. While my degrees are in politics and law, I spent part of my college years as a physics major, so I also have a strong background in math and sciences. I was awarded a National Merit Scholarship through my SAT score of 1580 (on old 1600 scale) and scored a 175 on the LSAT.

As I'm sure you get all the time, Derek was PHENOMENAL. He is truly a genius and has, in a way, changed my life. Prior to the course I was continually scoring in the 20th percentile, I feared I would not get into law school. My last practice test I scored in the 80th percentile. My progress is truly life changing. Derek is making my dreams come true. Cheesy, I know, but true.

My tutor was fantastic. He was very patient, helpful, and flexible. If necessary, I will go this route again.

I wanted to thank you for your help on the MCAT. As I had stated, physics was my weakest subject. I just got my score back and I got a 519, with a 130 in the chem/physics section. I'm pretty sure I had to at least get a few physics questions right for that, so thank you very much for being an excellent instructor!
