– About –
Hi! My name is Jon. Sorry for the basic website! I figured my time was better spent helping others than making a nice web page.
I serve the NYC Tri-state area. I also offer online tutoring through Skype, and have tutored students from California, Florida, Ottawa, and more!
With a degree in Philosophy and Mathematics from NYU, I developed a strong knack for logic and problem solving. In fact, I always loved riddles and brainteasers, and initially studied the LSAT for fun. That might sound strange, but while some do crossword puzzles to pass the time I review the LSAT. I was quickly able to score in the 99% range.
I started tutoring the LSAT for FREE, since I take great pride in my work, and wanted to hone my teaching ability. In fact, I helped one student from a 160 to a 173 recently. There are many teachers who are quite intelligent, but cannot explain the material well. I made sure to understand all aspects of the test, and be able to teach students from any starting point.
– Strategies –
My strategies are reliant on taking the practice tests, carefully noting the questions you got wrong and finding common errors to correct. My approach is custom tailored for each student, and is not a one fit program. In fact, I suggest students to study on their own for as long as possible. This is best for the student, since they get to know their strengths and weaknesses, and can pinpoint the trouble areas that they need to work on.
I know law school and the application process can be costly, so I advise students to study on their own, and hire a tutor towards the end. Eventually many students find they hit a roadblock and can’t progress any further. That is where I come in to take you to the next level.

My rate is – $80 an hour. Also, the first one hour lesson comes with a satisfaction guarantee, which means you don’t have to pay if you feel as though in any way you were not helped. It should be noted no one has ever taken me up on this offer.
There are no long term contracts, and you can pay after each lesson and can stop at anytime. This is a chance to receive great instruction. And it is much better than the multitude of generic LSAT classes, since you will receive individualized attention.
– Skype –
I understand many students are skeptical about online tutoring and prefer in-person tutoring. Initially, I was in the same boat. Originally, I only tutored students in the NYC area, but some of my prospective students were far away and decided to try online tutoring. I quickly found it was almost or even better in some ways than in-person tutoring. Here are some of the benefits I found:
- No Commute
- Can be done from the comfort of your house
- Easy to change dates and times
- I use screen share and an online whiteboard to takes notes and draw diagrams. It is just like taking notes in-person.
You can save these notes for future reference.
- Anything done in-person can be done online.
