I believe LSAT tutoring should be…

Customized

Why waste time on an uninspiring one-size-fits-all course when you can instead invest that time on personalized prep? We’ll take the time to get to know your strengths and weaknesses, then systematically target the exact areas and skills you need in order to raise your LSAT score.

Ego-free

I believe learning happens best when we focus on growth rather than ego boosts. I tutor with empathy, and I promise to never make you feel dumb. In exchange, I ask that you work on cultivating a growth mindset in your LSAT prep so that every mistake becomes an opportunity to learn.

Holistic

The LSAT is grueling, intimidating, and mentally taxing. We won’t ignore these psychological components of the LSAT. Instead, we’ll practice techniques for triaging the test, for managing stress, and for avoiding as much mental fatigue as possible so that you can perform at your best. We’ll also make sure you are avoiding burn out while studying.

How I Teach Each LSAT Section

Logical Reasoning

Logical reasoning accounts for about half of you LSAT score and is therefore essential to master. My tutoring sessions focus on developing critical thinking strategies for the different logical reasoning question types. We’ll also work through elimination strategies to help you more quickly identify the right answer and move on to the next question with confidence.

The LSAT is predictable; the more intimately familiar you are with the LSAT, the more you’ll start to notice the same basic questions over and over. However, it’s no use to simply grind through test after test, just as jumping on the scale repeatedly is not an effective weight loss method. Instead, we’ll use each question as an opportunity to train your thinking process, helping you develop the critical thinking skills really necessary for score improvement.

Logic Games

Understandably, many students are initially intimidated by logic games, though with practice, my students often see their biggest improvements in this section. We’ll cover game types, sketches, conditional logic rules, deductions, and methods for attacking the questions systematically and efficiently.

Personally, I’ve always loved the games section, even when I was just starting out with the LSAT and didn’t yet know how to tackle the section. I was one of those kids who did books of logic puzzles, and I’ve even nerded out with some logic games from the Korean LSAT (language learning + LSAT — my two favorite hobbies together!) However, I understand that not every student feels the same way as I do about this section. We’ll also work through stress and time management to make sure you’re setting yourself up for success.

Reading Comprehension

LSAT reading comp requires intense and careful reading of passages which can at times get fairly technical or abstract. Unfortunately, many students don’t really have a solid plan for improving in this section, beyond simply doing more passages.

With my students, I focus on applying methods for active reading, including effective and efficient passage marking. We practice techniques for attacking the questions in a way that makes them as black and white as possible. These techniques include actually using your passage markings, making predictions, and skillfully eliminating wrong answers. We’ll also work on general section management skills so that you’re optimizing your score each time.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

Not sure yet whether online tutoring will work for you? I offer a satisfaction guarantee for the first session. It’s important to me that I only work with students who feel we’re a good match, so if you’re not 100% satisfied after the first session, the session fee will be completely refunded.

My LSAT Journey

I have been tutoring the LSAT for a decade, first as a Kaplan teacher and tutor, and later as an independent, private tutor. I’ve taken the official LSAT twice, once on paper and then again when the LSAT went digital in 2019. I prepped alongside my tutoring students to make sure my techniques were on point — and ended up with a 177! I believe that everyone is capable of increasing their LSAT score significantly. And since there are thousands of scholarship dollars at stake here, every point counts!

Testimonials

Before working with Carrie I took an LSAT practice test and scored a 120. I was down in the dumps and knew I needed to increase my score dramatically to be accepted into law school. Even though my initial score was low I still had set high expectations for myself. I set a goal to improve my score to high 160’s range. Carrie has helped me tremendously. During our first meeting she assured me that with her extensive experience tutoring students on the LSAT that if I put in the work I would be able to improve my score dramatically. I have been working with Carrie for about two months now. I scored a 158 on my last practice test and feel confident with more practice and tutoring I will be able to achieve my goal. I cannot recommend Carrie enough if you are looking for a skilled, patient, and knowledgeable tutor.

Craig

LSAT, Nevada

Carrie is the best tutor I have ever had. Her attention to detail, and organization made studying for the LSAT easier. There are so many amazing things that I could say about Carrie, but the one thing that stood out the most is that she really wants you to understand and succeed. She consistently checks up and responds fast. She explains everything very thoroughly, and makes the LSAT fun and enjoyable. I recommend her to anyone studying for the lsat or any other standardized test because I believe that she is truly the best person to have on your side when studying for any test this big. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done in helping me succeed and for helping me strive towards a goal that I’ve had since I was 8.

Mohamad

LSAT, Oregon

Over the course of my learning experience with Carrie, she was able to communicate subject matter in an easy to understand way. She has a fantastic attitude, and was very patient. Her thorough breakdown of material made it easier to digest and understand, making me feel more confident leading up to the test date. In a somewhat short time frame that we had until the date of my test, she was able to work efficiently with me to improve my score from previous scores immensely. Carrie is also extremely adaptable with flexibility in time and scheduling, accommodating changes I had requested. She also topped it off with helpful tips! I would 100% use Carrie as a tutor again for future matters.”

Meghan

LSAT, South Carolina

I found Carrie at a crucial time in my studying. I had bad experiences with tutors before and Carrie helped me gain back my trust in tutors. She helped me learn from the beginning and helped me make my knowledge about the LSAT even stronger. She is extremely patient and goes through so much in one study session and has plenty of material to help study with. If you’re considering a tutor I strongly would recommend her. She is extremely responsive and when schedules conflict she does her best to reschedule and goes above and beyond. She made studying enjoyable and she has a ton of knowledge! I am so glad I found her! 15 out​ of 10 stars!

Ujala

LSAT, Texas

Carrie is an amazing tutor! Her lesson plans are extremely helpful. She tailored them specifically to meet my needs – focusing on areas I need to improve on while trying to master areas I am already soring ok. Throughout my time tutoring with her I have learned so much, not just how to take the test but also how to be methodical with my remaining time. Her insights into the test, such as finishing only specific reference questions on reading comp passages I ran out of time and prioritizing some passages over others has truly made a difference in my reading comp section. Before I would score about 8/27 ( I know it was pretty bad.) However, I have now gotten to 18/27 (huge improvement). She has also helped me improve my logical reasoning section (from 12/25 to 18/25.) So far I’ve been able to raise my score by 12 points on the LSAT from a 148 to 160. With one more month till the LSAT I’m sure I’ll be able to pick it up even more. I would recommend Carrie to anyone studying for the LSAT.
