Mary A. (University of San Francisco School of Law)

“I failed the bar three times. After my third attempt, I felt completely discouraged, frustrated and terrified, as I was not sure what else I could do to prepare. I was also working full-time, and I thought my only option was to quit my job so I could dedicate all of my time to studying. However, a good friend of mine referred me to Steve and told me to hear him out before making any decisions about my job. I reached out and after discussing a plan of action, I felt, for the first time, that I could beat this thing while still working. Steve first established a study schedule that was tailored to my work schedule, which was extremely helpful. He then immediately began working on my essay writing skills, which included breaking down my essays line by line and taught me how to use every single fact in the fact pattern. Regarding the MBEs, Steve made sure that I understood WHY I got each answer wrong versus simply focusing on quantity. Lastly, and most importantly, I experienced pretty extreme test anxiety after my failed attempts, and Steve’s methods gave me newfound confidence after I saw such improvement in such a short amount of time. I would highly recommend Steve’s program to both first-time and repeat takers.”
