Bar Tutor Needed- Florida

Postby Cati » Wed Apr 18, 2018 12:53 pm

Hello all.

I am looking for a tutor in Florida and specifically in the Miami area. I am also open to online if it is *very* good.

I have tried Grossman, but I would like to hear some other options in the area.

I am a repeat taker.....

Thank you greatly.

I recommend David Goldman. He helped my husband pass VA after 2 failed attempts. He’s in NJ but after 6 tutors, he’s the best! (I know he does FL too!)

I won't recommend myself (seems biased) but you can view my blog and see if you'd like to talk some more!

Hi there,

15+ year bar exam coach and 10-year legal writing law prof here. You're welcome to check out my website to see if you're interested in my help. The February 2018 FL bar exam went extremely well for my repeat takers.

Foreign educated. Graduated law school 15 years back. Passed Feb 2018 NY bar exam by 13 points. Failed Feb 2017 (took exam on a whim) by 36 points and July 2017 by 10 points. Alisa Geller ( was my bar tutor and she's instrumental for my success. She helped me learn how to approach and answer the MPTs and essays the proper way, as well as helped me gain confidence with MBE. I had very limited time to study (due to hectic work schedule and family responsibilities). Alisa helped me create my own study schedule, and not only helped clarify complex legal rules, such as RAP, but also helped me get into the habit of answering MBE questions correctly and on time.

What I really liked about Alisa is that not only she's knowledgeable but also she has a keen understanding of what my weaknesses were and helped turn them into my strengths. She was very patient with me and never kicked up a fuss or charged me overtime even though several of my one-on-one one hour study sessions with her often went beyond one hour. When I had signed up with Barbri, Barbri also threw in 5 hours session with a Barbri tutor. However, I was very disappointed with the Barbri tutor, who was more interested in bragging about his experience in the law profession and was constantly checking (and letting me know) the time, and would abruptly stop tutoring as soon as the time was up. With Alisa, that was never the case - she always gave priority to my interest and made sure that I had understood the subject well and encouraged me to ask questions, even when the time was up.

If you're foreign educated and/or a retaker like me, I would suggest that you give her a try. She tutored me in person but I think she tutors via Skype too, if you're not residing in NY/NJ.

I also took Barbri but never could keep pace with the program. What worked for me well was making own outlines (from Barbri lectures and Conviser), practising MBE midterm and refresher and going through Barbri MEE and MPT practice books to get a good understanding of issue spotting. Bought S&T as well as Critical Pass but never found time to use them.

I just took the February Florida bar and scored a 156/169. I'm an attorney in Illinois with 20 years experience. I'm considering doing some mentoring for the FL bar given my experience and my scores. Feel free to reach out to me at:
