About Me

There’s no mistaking my driving personality trait: I am a results- oriented person.  I don’t like variables and unknowns.  When I began my preparation for the bar, I found a clear void in essay preparation. There were plenty of really good MBE prep courses with superior materials.  What was most lacking was a defined and predictable essay preparation approach, and a clear understanding of what I was supposed to be doing with my time after my commercial course ended.  As a single mother, full-time employee and full-time law student, I did not have the luxury of re-taking the exam.  I had to pass the first time.  My course was designed to eliminate uncertainty and to promote economy of effort by preparing for what would actually be tested on the exam.

After sharing my method with some of my law school professors at Rutgers, they began to refer students to me for both the essay portion of the bar exam and first-year exam preparation.  Soon after, I suggested that the law school offer my course to graduating 3L’s so that everyone could have the same advantage.  Until devoting my full-time efforts to bar-prep work, I practiced law and taught this course for Rutgers Law School in Camden and to individuals privately.

My course has become very popular, and I was often sought out, through referral, by students from other schools, and in some cases, I was even referred by judges to their law clerks.

My students often relay gratitude for my compassion and attentiveness to their emotional wellbeing during bar exam preparation.  I am also well known for successfully preparing re-takers of the exam. There is no denying that the bar exam is an emotional, and often life-altering experience.

More than anything, my course is most known for breaking down preparation for the essay portion of the exam into defined and discrete tasks, and eliminating the guesswork.   Typically I meet with students six to eight times during a course. Meetings are confined to explaining assignments and methodology and reviewing the previous week’s assignment.  My sessions do not conflict with other courses and are often complimentary.  Students need not worry about the “extra” time associated with our meetings, since the organization of the course is designed to maximize efficiency and actually saves effort.

My students are often surprised to learn that the essay portion of the exam is less about finding answers and more about testing their ability to detect problems.  After all, good lawyers can best identify their client’s legal exposure before delving into solutions and analysis.

Aside from the legal instruction and methodological preparation, I most enjoy the human element of my work with students---helping people overcome their fear of this exam and finding out that their unique contribution to the practice of law, however it expresses itself, is meaningful and worthwhile.
