James’ greatest specialty is with the law school entrance exam, known (and dreaded) by soon-to-be law students as the LSAT. He has taught the LSAT for 7 years, scored a 180 on the September 2009 LSAT, and several of his students have scored in the 99th percentile and moved onto LSAT teaching themselves. Not only did he achieve a perfect score, he also knows what it takes to get students where they want to be on the score scale.

In addition to the LSAT, he covers all forms of high school math, chemistry, and physics. Most students see full letter grade improvements after about 2 to 4 hours of tutoring with him.

The explicit and ongoing theme for all lessons with James is simplicity. Keep it simple! Do things in feasible and digestible amounts. James‘ primary objective as an instructor is not just to teach students the material itself – what good is that, if the methods and skills students learned evaporate under the stress of a test? He aims to make sure that what his students learn is simple and logical enough for them to recall under even the most stressful conditions.
