Savannah Jenner-Smith (Southern California Institute of Law)

“I worked with Steve to prepare for the July 2019, February 2020, and October 2020 CA Bar Exams. Steve has a curated study program for Essay’s, MBE’s, and the PT, all of which I utilized, and recommend. I knew from early on in my academic career that standardized tests were not a strong suit, and I would need to work hard to achieve this goal. I chose to continue working with Steve after not passing because I saw the improvements from his coaching each time. I had taken the exam and used BarBri before working with Steve. I loved that Steve’s outlines were designed by commonly tested topics on the exam, rather than the exhaustive and overwhelming generic outlines I had previously worked with. Steve’s study materials felt manageable, thorough, had useful tips, and clearly noted CA distinctions. Steve’s coaching style was the right amount of accountability for me. I was able to create my own schedule and stick to it while the coaching sessions gave me deadlines to structure my schedule around. I appreciated Steve’s ability to effectively communicate feedback about my writing, and follow up with tasks to assist me in spotting my own errors as well as strengths. I am excited to recommend Steve as a tutor to anyone serious about passing the exam. Trust his expertise, his process, and follow instructions. Good luck!”
