Who are you real quick?

A Stanford grad who turned down Harvard Law School to teach the LSAT

Who are you slightly less quick?

I’m best known as the author of The Loophole in LSAT Logical Reasoning (or just “The Loophole” as r/LSAT affectionately terms it). I’m the first and only female founder/author in LSAT, but really I teach LSAT because it’s the one time that others have a reason to care about what I care about: how well they read and critically think. Imagine a world in which everyone *really* understood, remembered, and could critically analyze text – that’s the world I set out to create in The Loophole and in my LSAT teaching.

After 11 years of being obsessed with teaching LSAT, I’ve researched and developed some pretty cool asynchronous digital learning tools that are now patent-pending. Now, I'm leveraging these digital learning tools to change the way the world learns skills.
