Nick is a great tutor. I was one of those who took a Princeton course before trying a private tutor. Those courses are a real money grab, my 'instructor' was just awful...she was not only bad, but often unprepared, late, haughty... I was unmotivated and demoralized after seeing my June score.
When I came to Nick, he provided me with an arsenal of simple tools to get the right answer quickly. He's been tutoring for years so he knows all the intricacies of the test, unlike my Princeton girl who was completely new. If I was embarrassed at having picked the wrong answer, Nick would flip his original tattered book around and say "look, long ago I made that same mistake." It's nice to know that your teacher was once at a similar level, and and can show you the best way forward. There's no hubris on his part, and I never felt discouraged. I got my September score, and improved by 12 points. Worth every penny.
Nicholas has tutored my daughter after she had seen another professional tutor without much result. She found Nicholas ' approach very personable and effective while at the same time unstressful and even fun. She highly recommends him to anyone who wants to succeed on the LSAT.
Amazing experience! I wish I had contacted him sooner. I really saw an amazing improvement in my score after just our first session!
I felt so at ease during the session. We worked at a pace I was comfortable with, and made sure I was well acquainted with the material before moving along.
Phenomenal experience, 1 on 1 tutoring. Better than Kaplan, Princeton Review, etc. They are expensive, but worth it.
I tried both Power Score and Harvard Ready before stumbling across this indie firm by chance. I wish I had sooner -- small is beautiful, right? It's run almost entirely by an Osgoode student -- he says he only hires when there's overflow demand.
The website is full of annecdotes and useful law school info (in addition to the LSAT materials.) Nick himself is an awesome tutor. He obviously loves what he does, and it shows. Unlike the large companies, he seems to genuinely care about his students and their successes.
Plus, he's madly entertaining, and invents crazy funny analogies, which made remembering everything a lot easier. My first writing was a disaster, and I promised that if I cracked the 160s in June I would leave a great review. I did, and so here it is. Highly recommended!
