CA Bar Tutor

As your strategic coach and nurturing bar tutor, I will guide you along the inevitable bumps and challenges on the road to successfully becoming a California Esq.

Bar Exam Tutor

In the words of one of his past students (Jane K.), Steve is not just a tutor for the bar exam; he is a coach. While other bar prep courses return practice essays with a mark and some vague comments, Steve's program includes constructive criticism along with specific guidance to show you how to improve your exam-writing skills. There is no cookie-cutter feedback; your work is evaluated line by line, and discussed with you one-on-one.

Bar Tutor

Our experience tutoring students for the bar exam has shown us that effective preparation requires an 'open book' approach to doing the essays. Requiring students to spend their energy on early memorization slows down the learning process and hinders their ability to make the critical changes that are needed to pass the exam. Of course memorization is important for the exam itself; however, for the purposes of exam prep, we prefer to see what you can do with the law when you have it at your fingertips.

To help you, and us, better understand your strengths and weaknesses, we offer a program option to review your previous bar exam results. This process will help you see the improvement in your writing, and bolster your confidence going into the exam.
