Christin Dale (University of Dayton School of Law)

“My name is Christin, I am a graduate of the University of Dayton School of Law in Ohio. I had taken the California Bar exam three times and used Themis’ bar review course to prep for the exams. After my third attempt, I decided to enlist the help of a tutor. I searched several tutors but Steve stuck out to me. We discussed my previous attempts at the exam and he gave me some initial feedback, focusing on what he could help me improve. Themis was a good course but it can’t compare to the support and assistance I received from Steve. Steve worked on both the MBE and essay portions of the exam with me. The MBE work is very straightforward but his approach helped me nail down what subjects and topics were the hardest for me and needed the most attention. Steve taught me how to conform my writing to what the California bar exam graders wanted to see. Steve also taught me how to use and expand on the essay fact patterns, an area where I admittedly struggled. Steve’s approach truly did work for me. I was getting nowhere using the same approach three times in a row. When I reached out to Steve, he emphasized that I would need to trust the process (as did the numerous references I reached out to). I did just that. I trusted Steve’s process, I put in the time and effort, and it worked. Lastly, Steve kept updated on the latest developments concerning remote testing. He remained focused on what we knew about the exam and was available for questions and concerns. Steve offers an approach that was unique from what I could find in a large vendor course. I would highly recommend Steve’s program to first time and repeat test takers.”
