180 LSAT Scorer! (Plus physics, calculus, writing, and more)

I have extensive experience in a wide range of literature at the college level, covering anything from modern American lit to the ancient classics (we're talking Homer, Virgil, Plato, and the like). Anything in between is also fair game. My greatest specialty is with the law school entrance exam, known (and dreaded) by soon-to-be law students as the LSAT. I've taught the LSAT for 9 years, scored a 180 on the September 2009 LSAT, and several of my students scored in the 99th percentile and moved into LSAT teaching themselves. Not only do I have a perfect score, I also know what it takes to get [more]
