Spencer is originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma, and graduated with high honors from the University of Arkansas with a degree in economics. While in Arkansas, Spencer spent his time teaching macroeconomics, writing his senior thesis on international political systems theory, and coping with the continual disappointment of Arkansas Razorback football. He also worked for a local radio station, and frequently ventured out into the natural beauty of the Ozarks. After college, Spencer entered Harvard Law School to pursue his J.D., where he is currently a third-year student. At the law school, Spencer sits on the executive boards of the Harvard Mediation Program and the Texas Club. He also teaches first-year economics at Harvard College.
Spencer has spent most of his professional life teaching, both in the classroom and as a private tutor. In private tutoring, Spencer works exclusively with students preparing for the LSAT, and has coached students of all skill-levels. His focus in private tutoring is to help students formulate goals, and then design a strategy to make them possible. He has earned high praise from his past students, many of whom have received large scholarships and now attend law schools across the country.
