Every student will also have a few subjects they simply don’t understand, or never focused on in school. The typical courses simply go too fast to allow you to review those trouble spots, which is where I come in—to help you fill those gaps.
Regarding the essays, most first-time students ignore any essay review other than reading “model answers” a few weeks before the exam. This leads to most students doing poorly on at least one essay, and puts them at great risk of not passing this portion of the exam. I designate a small but important part of your study schedule each week for essay writing, so that you painlessly develop a consistent IRAC writing style for the exam (which is MUCH different than Law School).
In fact, the essay portion is the most neglected part of a students review and can easily be worth a lot of easy points—if you know what they examiners want! By practicing a simple four-step IRAC technique, learning a concise outline method, and constant sharpening of your writing, you will not be sitting at the table that exam morning HOPING you recognize something to write—you will KNOW what to write and you will know HOW to write it!
In addition to practical training, my personal approach can guide you through all the unknown factors, such as What will it be like in that room? or how to handle the insecurity after a bad day of practice—I will be someone to turn to when you start panicking, someone with answers to all the rumors and urban legends you hear from other students and friends. I will keep you on schedule, guide you through the process with constant review, make sure you are practicing for the entire exam, fill in any gaps of law, and be your sounding board right up until the morning of the exam.
This will guarantee you are NOT “cramming” for the test, but rather using the last few weeks prior to the exam for review…which in turn will allow you to relax, and give you confidence—so you can walk into that room believing you WILL pass!
I look forward to working with you and making sure that this becomes a “one-and-done” Bar experience!
