Sydney Rusch (California Western School of Law)

“I worked with Steve to study for the recent July 2022 bar examination. Hands down it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was a first time bar taker and had just secured my dream job after law school. I wanted to do everything I could to pass on my first try so that I didn’t lose this job and amazing opportunity. Steve made this possible. I was so nervous and insecure when I first started studying. I originally started bar prep in another large group study program and immediately felt myself falling behind. I was convinced there was no way I would ever be able to pass this test. I knew that I needed a more individualized study program, so I started looking for tutors. I felt an instant confidence boost after my first conversation with Steve. Over the next few months he worked with me to improve my essay writing and multiple choice scores. He also helped me deal with the stress, ease my anxiety, and boost my overall confidence. Steve is a straight shooter and keeps you focused. He is very honest and will tell you exactly what you need to keep improving. Studying for the bar is a grueling process and Steve helped me stay on track every step of the way. When it came time to take the actual bar, I felt prepared and used the tools and strategies he taught me to keep moving through the exam. After months of waiting, getting that “pass” was the best moment of my life. I am so grateful for Steve and his program. Not only are his outlines great, but he teaches you how to study, how to take the test, and how to not give up on yourself. I highly recommend working with Steve to anyone who wants an individualized, strategic study plan. I passed on my first try and you can too!”
