I have worked with students preparing for the California bar exam and the First-Year Law Student Exam (FYLSE) or “baby bar.” I also tutor bar exam subjects such as criminal law, torts, and contracts for law school exams and papers. You may book lessons one-on-one or bring a small study group with you to split the cost. Online lessons are also available.
To book a lesson or a free 30-minute consultation with me, please see the Appointment Calendar. (To book an online Skype lesson, select “Office Lesson.”)
If you have recently failed the California bar, I welcome you to come try a new approach. Most students in this situation have spent too much time on MBE questions and not enough on essay practice. The shortcoming of most bar-prep classes is that they keep telling you to “spot the issues,” but they never give you a list of what “the issues” are! I have looked over numerous model answers to determine exactly what “the issues” are and how to structure your essay responses with them. Frankly, the exam also requires a massive knowledge base. I will help you with brute force memorization. I can look over your outlines and checklists to make sure they are complete, or alternatively start you on a new program with the flashcards-to-outline system that worked for me.
I graduated from the UCLA School of Law and passed the bar exam in 2004. I am now a self-employed “tutorney,” a professional tutor and attorney (licensed in CA).
