As someone who has successfully taken the LSAT, attended law school, passed the Bar Exam, and practiced law - I know what it takes to help you obtain your goal of admission to law school.
When it comes to law school admissions, your LSAT score can either open doors or close them. Thus, it is critical that every law school applicant earn the highest LSAT score possible. For the past few years, I have honed an LSAT prep program that takes an individualistic approach that helps students accomplish their target score. Some of my program includes: custom homework and drills; in-depth analysis of previously administered LSAT exams that you'll be assigned to take for practice; numerous strategy tips for maximizing points; and test anxiety/stress management. Generic study books and commercial programs can be valuable resources, but there's no substitute for one-on-one, tailored tutoring sessions.
Also, applicants need to have a refined personal statement and overall file. So, in addition to working with students earn a solid LSAT score, I also assist with the entire law school application process.
Lastly, it's never too early to start prepping for the LSAT and working on your law school admission file! Whether this is your first time taking the LSAT or a re-take, you can accomplish your dream of becoming an attorney. So, let's get started...
*NOTE: I am available for remote/online sessions and for LSAT prep, remote sessions work just as effectively as in-person sessions. A majority of my students are online so don't be inhibited to try a session remotely if you are not in my immediate area.
A little bit about my professional background: In 2009, I graduated magna cum laude from Hope College in Holland, Michigan and earned a B.A. degree with a double-major in psychology and communication (departmental honors). Following this, I attended the University of Iowa College of Law and graduated with a Juris Doctor degree in May 2012.
While at the University of Iowa College of Law, I was a student writer and contributing editor for the Iowa Law Review, assistant director for the Trial Advocacy Executive Board, the competitive trial advocacy team, and teaching assistant to Professor David Baker, former Iowa Supreme Court Justice. In addition to my academic activities, I served in several volunteer organizations and assisted immigrant victims of domestic abuse through the MUNA legal clinic and represented clients through the University of Iowa College of Law Legal Clinic in criminal defense and employment discrimination cases.
During my two summers in law school, I worked as a judicial law clerk intern for the Honorable Marcia Phillips Parsons, Chief Judge of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee and as a summer associate at The Spence Firm (Gerry Spence's firm) in Jackson, Wyoming. Upon graduating law school, I worked at a civil law firm in Conyers, Georgia and focused on pharmaceutical products liability cases. I then became the special victim’s unit prosecutor for Walton County, Georgia and handled crimes against children, felony sexual assaults, and crimes against the elderly. After my time as a SVU prosecutor, I taught a couple law courses at a community college and did contract legal side work.
Presently, I recently completed a post-baccalaureate premedical program after making a decision to apply to medical school and pursue medicine. Consequently, I also offer tutoring at the high school and college level in various areas including: English; Essays/Papers; History; Chemistry; Biology; Biochemistry; Psychology; and so forth.
While I prepare for the MCAT and medical school applications, I am working as an academic tutor, EMT, and columnist with a pre-med magazine.
