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 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."

    "In the time Preston was my tutor, he was able to help me build foundational skills, understand the questions more fully, and develop my ability to graph problems and rules out for quicker problem solving. Every session with Preston helped me understand the problems better, increased my speed and accuracy in solving the problems, and helped me gain confidence in problem solving. Preston was always ready to rock! He took the time to evaluate me on his end, identify my strengths and weaknesses, then came prepared to every session with a practice test that was both challenging and that would help me continue to build on skills I needed to improve on. The sessions were both intense and informative. Preston constantly challenged me to use the skillsets he helped me learn and then reinforced those skillsets with expert tutoring on areas I struggled with. He is an absolute master in explaining both how to work through any given problem but also to understand where you may have gone wrong and help you correct that deficiency. I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into at first. Preston eased me into the program by initially evaluating me and then by continued evaluation after each session. The positive reinforcement Preston provided helped me understand the material in ways I hadn’t previously considered while improving my ability to work through problems with greater ease and proficiency than I did prior to using Cambridge Coaching services. Preston and I had exceptional communication together. He was able to address any concerns I had on the spot with expert advice. Cambridge Coaching did an exceptional job matching me with Preston. They offer a wide variety of tutors, but they go out of their way to ensure the student is matched with the right tutor. Both the company and the tutor were very professional and always had my best interest at heart. Martha has been absolutely exceptional in both customer service and her communication with me. She always made me feel welcome and valued. I highly recommend Cambridge Coaching (and Preston if you are looking for LSAT tutoring) to anyone that wants to gain meaningful and measurable improvement in any given entrance exam!"
