Preston

Bio

Preston is originally from Atlanta, and he really won't shut up about it. Nevertheless, he completed the first two years of his undergraduate degree at Wake Forest University in North Carolina and the final two years at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. After one year of working at a law firm in Chicago post-graduation, Preston moved to Boston where he is currently a second-year student at Harvard Law School.

Preston's tutoring specialty is the LSAT. Specifically, he is passionate about helping students break through a plateau where their scores are stagnant. He has helped students achieve scores in the upper bounds of the 99th percentile, and embraces the challenge of taking any student with the willingness to work hard to that level, too.

In his free time, Preston enjoys participating in mock trial and moot court competitions, weight training, and watching reaction videos to the MGK/Eminem rap battles.

    "Preston was great at understanding my particular learning style and areas in need of work and crafting an individualized plan and strategy specifically for me. He listened to my feedback and made adjustments based on suggestions I had, but also pushed me to think about the test in new and helpful ways. I greatly appreciated this individualized approach and specialized attention to improving particular weak spots. Additionally, Preston was very flexible and always made himself available when I needed assistance. Preston always seemed prepared and had ideas for strategies that were tailor-made to my learning style. My sessions with Preston were always productive, even when I would panic if I felt I was missing a lot of questions and he would take the time to sit with me and talk through strategies for managing anxiety. We were often able to work through more than one section in a session. I was very dedicated to improving my score, so I took all of Preston's suggestions (even waking up two hours early and studying in my office before work) and did everything I could to implement the strategies he gave me outside of sessions. I worked very hard and dedicated a lot of time and effort to studying outside of our sessions. I saw my score steadily improve and often make large jumps because of my work with Preston. I honestly cannot think of anything I would have changed about my tutoring experience, and think Preston did a great job! Score went from 162 to 175."
