LSAT Tutoring

Postby LSATace » Sun Jan 03, 2010 11:40 pm

I could use a bit of advice here with my nascent career as an LSAT tutor.
Let me explain:

I had a facility for standardized tests back in grade school, so I decided to take the LSAT- for the sole purpose of becoming an LSAT tutor. I heard that you could make decent money as a tutor, which certainly beat starving. Furthermore, I had taught several friends how to play chess, and had been volunteering as an English tutor at a local high school. So why not?

This was back in June. All summer long I worked with the three "Actual Official LSAT PrepTest" books published by the LSAC, and the hellaciously difficult book "Logic Games" published by REA. By late August I was questioning my sanity, but I soldiered through and took the Sptember LSAT. After chewing my nails off for a few weeks I got back my results: not quite as good as I had wanted, but a score of 172, just good enough for the 99th percentile. Eureka! Riches awaited me.

Remember that South Park episode with the Underpants Gnomes? Step 1: Steal Underpants, Step 2: ???, Step 3: Profit! Well, I discovered that my plan was very similar: Step 1) Ace LSAT, Step 2) ???, Step 3) Profit!

I have a score of 172 on the LSAT, quite possibly have an amazing ability to impart knowledge to others, and am currently starving to death.

I know that I may have been foolish.
Got that.

Any advice?

testmasters pays 50/hr. blueprint pays 60/hr. atlas pays 100. knewton pays between 100-500 (so they claim, anyhow).
