Bio

Adair has traveled to over twenty-five countries, and has lived in Morocco, Senegal, South Africa, and Vietnam. Now that she’s in law school at Yale Law School, she can usually be found in New Haven, CT. Adair graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Barnard College with a 3.95/4.00 GPA. While at Barnard she received various awards, including departmental honors for her thesis; she was selected to attend Barnard’s Global Symposium in Shanghai, China, and was a Centennial Scholar. She worked as a Senior Management Consultant for IBM for three years before starting her JD, and also has professional experience as an editor, grant writer, and ESL teacher.

Adair has been teaching and tutoring for nearly ten years, and has worked with clients from middle school through to working professionals and everyone in between. She is comfortable providing general tutoring to middle and high school students, and is excited to work with students preparing for the SAT, ACT, GRE, or LSAT. Finally, Adair loves working with students going through college or graduate application processes, providing supportive and hands-on coaching to develop application packages that showcase the most unique and special parts of the student.

When she’s not traveling, or studying, Adair can be found cooking, baking, or playing with her Siberian cat, Leo.

    "Adair is a fantastic guide for those navigating the law school admissions process. We began by reviewing my resume, test scores personal statement, and interests to set expectations for my applications and school selection- and then worked together to craft an application that was suited to my specific goals. Not only is Adair charismatic and intelligent, but she is also extremely thoughtful, and took care to listen to my thoughts and concerns and incorporate these into her feedback. She was very helpful in editing my personal statement. I felt like Adair was uniquely adept at analyzing my ideas and experiences and isolating the important details, and I feel like my writing skills improved from my time working with Adair. I recommend Adair without hesitation, and I have no doubts those who chose to work with her will benefit from a stronger application and a rewarding experience"

    "Adair is an amazing writer/editor. It took her no time to listen to my relevant life experiences and distill a phenomenal essay topic from it. I had no intention of using a coach when I initially began applying to law school and studying for the LSAT, but a friend at work strongly encouraged me to look into it as it was something he said he wished he did. Adair really took a lot of the stress out of this process for me. I am a full-time student and employed full time so I really don't have a lot of free time, much less time that I can spend working on all this especially since my decision to apply to law school was last minute and I didn't really know what I was doing. Adair was very flexible and accommodating of my schedule and my goals for completion of the application process. She was very accessible on email between meetings as well."

    "Adair proved to be an invaluable resource in developing my personal statement for law school. I entered the first session a little lost with a few different rough ideas in mind, and after only one session had defined a clear topic. We progressed quite smoothly from there, each session making great progress in content. We spent the final couple sessions revising intensely and ensuring that the statement portrayed my message as accurately as possible. I loved working with Adair, who was not only personable but extremely talented, and highly recommend her services!"
