I work with all students preparing for the LSAT, GMAT, or GRE. I have repeatedly earned 99th percentile scores on these tests, and I have helped hundreds of students hit their target scores and get into top-tier schools, from Columbia and NYU to Duke and UCLA. Since 1999, I have helped college students, recent college grads, and not-so-recent college grads prepare for these tests and Learn to Succeed!™
Grad School - A Word from Jay Lipman, Founder of Test Your Best:
About LSAT Tutoring
Most LSAT students struggle with the Logic Games section, but I can show you how this is actually a great place to achieve a quick score increase. I’ll also explain why most LSAT students end up practicing inefficiently, and I’ll help you get ready for the test without wasting time. I’ve written logic games for one of the nation’s largest test prep companies, and during that time I took great care to write explanations that could be understood by students aiming for a 150 but which are also helpful for students pursuing the magic 180. But logic games constitute only a small portion of the LSAT; the Logical Reasoning sections count for half your score, so of course we’ll spend the time it takes to help you master those too.
All grad students will be asked to take a full-length test prior to their first session, during which time we will identify strengths and weaknesses. LSAT students should take a recently released test.
About GMAT Tutoring
GMAT students are often busy with work (LSAT and GRE students, too), and I understand how precious your study time is. I also understand the fear that often develops surrounding the math you’re asked to do without the aid of a calculator and which has been forgotten since Freshman year in High School. Learning to get the math questions right on the GMAT doesn’t require you to re-visit long-forgotten days of geometry proofs, complex diagrams, and incomprehensible theory. I’ll show you exactly what you do need to know, and teach you to earn points on the GMAT even when you don’t know the math! Because the GMAT is now given throughout the year, prep can start any time.
All grad students will be asked to take a full-length test prior to their first session, during which time we will identify strengths and weaknesses. GMAT students should take a simulated test from the available GMAC sources.
About GRE Tutoring
GRE students come from all areas of academia and therefore have unique needs. I have helped students gain admission to programs for everything from Philosophy to Library Sciences and from Biology to Literature. The importance of GRE scores in the admissions process can vary as widely as students’ backgrounds, and I’ll work with you to develop the optimal study program for your needs. Because GRE students come from such varied background, their needs are perhaps more dramatically diverse than those of any other test prep students. Fortunately, my wealth of experience helping students improve their GRE scores can be put to good use helping you improve your score!
All grad students will be asked to take a full-length test prior to their first session, during which time we will identify strengths and weaknesses. GRE students should take a simulated test from the GRE materials available on the ETS website.
