JEOPARDY! TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS WINNER.
A COACH DEVOTED TO YOU.
I can teach anyone to crush the LSAT. Here's why.

EXPERIENCE: Years ago I created Kaplan?s LSAT classroom and tutoring programs. For decades I kept a laser-like focus on the format, content, and secrets of the test. (I even visited Newtown.) Today, the unique strategies and tactics I have personally developed will outstrip anything you?ll find in any book or course. Period.

I have never had a tutor with the expertise and ability to cater to my needs that bob possessed. He is truly a wonderful teacher who pushed me to go above and beyond what I thought I was capable of doing on this test. He not only assisted me in understanding the test in a profound and astute way, but he helped me to understand the mental side of the test as well, helping me to prepare and believe in myself going into the exam. Bob is a brilliant tutor who cares passionately about the success of his students. If you are willing to put in the work to be great, Bob will get you there.

Bob is a savvy guy when it comes to the LSAT. He understands the challenges the test poses, and has a good game plan for helping students master all varieties of question types and LSAT scenarios. Personally, Bob was of huge help in providing me with a new way of tackling reading comprehension. His POV mentality is perfect for reading efficiently and effectively. I strongly urge you to consider Bob for LSAT prep and definitely so if you are looking to master RC!

After unsuccessfully working with a handful of different tutors I finally came across Bob. From our first lesson I noticed a distinct difference between his teaching styles and his confidence in his knowledge about the LSAT. Of the tutors I have encountered, and trust me there have been many, Bob was the most knowledgeable not only in teaching how to approach the LSAT but also giving valuable insight into the way in which the test is structured and designed. He is extremely willing to work with any student that is dedicated towards improving their score. If you put in the work Bob will be there to encourage you and give you helpful and effective tips and tricks along the way. The only regret I have is not finding him sooner. I look forward to continuing tutoring with Bob and recommending him to anyone who is struggling with the LSAT.

Bob's tutoring has identified my weak areas that I wouldn't have found on my own and his improvement advice gives me the tools to increase my score. I look forward to our sessions!
- Ralph H. from Aiea, HI
I initially began working with Bob in order to refine my skills in Reading Comprehension but soon decided he could help in all areas of the LSAT. Bob and I worked together for multiple months and he was able to break down crucial test concepts in order to improve my understanding. I would highly recommend Bob to anyone looking for a great LSAT tutor!
- Sam S. from Westfield, NJ
I really like Bob?s style and method. He?s compassionate and understanding, while at the some time being no BS and straight to the point.
- Greg G. from Tempe, AZ
Bob has instilled in me an easy yet powerful approach to dissecting and understanding a reading passage. It is not only easy to apply, the result is observably positive. Reading habit is something that is formed through a long period of time, and it is not easy to change. Still, one can improve it through diligent practice and I can say that Bob is the best teacher who can offer you clear instructions to the fastest route in achieving that.

I came to Bob two weeks before my second attempt at the LSAT-Flex. I?d completely self-prepped up to that point and scored a 168 on my first try taking the test, but my prep had stagnated and I felt like I was making the same mistakes over and over. I just needed a spark to shift my approach into the next gear. Over 2 hour-long lessons, Bob gave me that! He helped me attack Logical Reasoning questions more aggressively and strategize Reading Comprehension passages in a new way. I took his advice and ran with it, and I improved my score 8 points on my second take to a 176. There is a lot of advice online about the LSAT, but Bob clarified what to actually pay attention to and confirmed that the test really is manageable. I didn?t expect such straightforward advice to yield such major benefits, but it did. Bob is direct and focused, and he will make the most of the time that you spend with him.
- Ben L. from Brooklyn, NY
Very good advice when it comes to practical tips and overall mindset for the LSAT. I also enjoy that he is a straightforward tutor.
- Jordan C. from Orlando, FL
Bob was great in walking me through the reading comprehension questions I?m encountering. I was having difficulty with it but he gave me a different way of looking g at it. Thank you!
- Jessenia C. from Old Bethpage, NY
Bob's tutoring methods are easy to follow and understand for typically confusing topics. He challenges his students to apply their new knowledge to practice problems without his help to show that with his methods students can get correct answers. After my tutoring sessions with Bob, not only my confidence level but also my physical score had sky-rocketed. If you are a hard worker that is not afraid to make mistakes, I highly recommend working with Bob. He always wants the best for each student he works with and will challenge you to work hard so you can get the most out of his teaching.
- Timothy A. from Rock Island, IL
Thank you so much Bob!!! I appreciate all your help! You helped me build my confidence and gave me insights on what to expect when taking the exam. I hope to work with you again.

When I first came to Bob, I was desperate for help. My LSAT scores were stagnant despite studying on my own, and I was looking for a coach. I chose Bob as my tutor because I believed in his expertise and his strategy. Bob taught me how to deconstruct the test and approach it with confidence. His techniques changed my whole outlook on the exam and eased my stress. After my sessions with Bob, my LSAT score increased 11 points, from the 61st to the 92nd percentile. Bob held nothing back in his sessions with me, spoke to me truthfully, and had faith in my abilities even when I didn't. I would absolutely recommend Bob as a tutor to anyone looking for a coach in navigating the LSAT.
- Rachel G. from Beverly, MA
Bob is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He was accommodating to my studying strengths and weaknesses and was able to tailor his style to meet my own. I would recommend him to any prospective LSAT-taker. Also, overall, Bob is a very fun time and will keep you on your toes with his intelligence and humor.
- Gabriel F. from Water Mill, NY
I came to Bob less than a week before I took my LSAT Flex exam. I had self-studied up to that point and I felt good about my abilities, but wanted to make sure I was a able to prepare and execute at the highest level in these crucial last few days. Bob provided me some excellent advice about my mindset, tips from literal Olympians he had tutored about the importance of a warm-up routine, and useful information about how the test-makers construct the exam. Most importantly, his confidence rubbed off on me. Bob has unparalleled experience and expertise, forged in decades of work at the top of the industry. I attribute much of the mental shift I experienced in the days leading up to my test date to him, and so too my score of a 176. I was able to hit near the top of my testing range due to perfection of all the small things. I enjoyed working with Bob so much that I?ve taken his advice (and given him my money) to improve my writing sample.

Bob can take anyone, from beginners to seasoned lsat preppers, and take them to their goal and beyond. His energy keeps me actively participating throughout every session, and despite the numerous issues I have come across throughout my 2 months with him, he has always presented an effective solution. You put in the time/effort and he will lead you to success. He is knowledgeable about every section, so you?re in beyond good hands when it?s comes to LSAT preparation. Perhaps the most important factor of his coaching is the mental aspect. Bob not only trains you to do the proper mechanical functions for certain questions but empowers you to take control of the test and make it your own. With a test that is so demanding and prep that can be filled with a lot of negative emotions at times, Bob helps you stay hungry, ruthless, and unwavering in the face of obstacles. If you want your law school dreams to become a reality, choose Bob.
- John L. from College Park, MD
Makes sure to understand what level you are at and what questions you have. Goes into detail on how to improve on what you already know. Definitely looking forward to having him as my tutor!
- Hannah B. from Fort Lauderdale, FL
Bob helped me completely change my mindset about the LSAT and truly motivated me to attack the test in a way that I never had before. His experience and tactics for reading comprehension were incredibly helpful and I always felt as if he genuinely cared about me not just as a student but as a person. Great man and I would recommend his services to anyone!
- Marcus B. from Westfield, NJ
Bob is an excellent tutor who carefully tailors lessons to his students? respective skill sets so as not to waste anyone?s time, money, or energy. He is a joy to work with and always leaves me feeling encouraged.
- Jane V. from Boston, MA
Bob is great at breaking down the Lsat language so that your scores can improve . For many of us , the test is sort of like a foreign language . Bob is great at making the sections understandable so that your confidence can improve with attacking the test. The mechanics that he gives you surely cracks the Lsat Language code to improve scores
