Amir grew up in New York City before attending college at Duke University. He majored in economics and public policy and minored in math, graduating summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. He was a teaching assistant every semester he was on campus for at least one course, including several in the economics and mathematics departments. He studied abroad in Sydney, Australia, where he learned to surf and tackle LSAT logic games. After graduating, he lived in London, worked briefly at Boston Consulting Group, and then enrolled at Yale Law School.
In addition to his work as a TA, Amir has tutored a cohort of 15 first-generation low-income students for the LSAT and provided individualized admissions support. Of this cohort, several students scored above 170 on the LSAT (including one who scored 179) and earned admissions into Top-14 law schools. Amir takes enormous care to tailor his services to each student’s individual needs and makes three commitments to his students: (1) to challenge them to achieve their greatest potential; (2) to meet them wherever they are in the process and cater to their needs and feedback; and (3) to make the experience as fun and painless as possible. He also hopes to share a laugh with his students, as he cannot help making gratuitous LSAT puns along the way.
In his spare time, you can usually find Amir playing online bullet chess, reading at Sheep Meadow, or binging sitcoms with his partner, mom, and little sister.
