Wondering whether online law school tutoring can really help you? If you are considering hiring a law school tutor, we recommend that you give it a try! Here is why:

Looking for Online Law School Tutoring? Here is Why it’s Worth it!

1. Learn the substantive law.

The first reason is a bit obvious, but a law school tutor should first and foremost help you understand substantive law. This is the most important reason to hire one. You attend law school to understand the law, so focusing on that with a tutor can be especially helpful! Working with a law school tutor can help you understand the classes or topics that you are struggling with.

Many students find the time that they spend talking difficult concepts over with a tutor to be invaluable. And it is a necessary first step! Because once you understand the law, then you can outline it, memorize it, and apply it!

2. Learn the skills that you need to succeed.

This is number two for a reason—because it is almost as important as number one! If you know the law, that is just half the battle. You also have to know how to outline and how to answer law school exam questions. Many very intelligent law students struggle to get good grades because they lack skills that law school assumes they have. A law school tutor can help you learn by simply sharpening the necessary skills that you need to succeed.

We find that many times it is very easy to teach these skills online. For example, we can pull up a google document (that we are both looking at at the same time) and outline with you or show you how to organize your outlines using that document. Or we can show you an exam question and — both looking at the same screen — point out different facts that should lead to different “IRAC’s”. We can also talk about how to approach law school exam questions very easily utilizing this method. It is very easy to practice with you.

3. Time management.

An online law school tutor can help you develop schedule that allows you to get everything you need to get done accomplished. Many students need just a session or two to go over their schedule and to work on some skills, such as how to approach reading assignments and outlining. A little can go a long way in this regard! One session with a tutor could possibly help you “find” time to get everything you need to get done, done.

If you are wondering if it is possible to meet once to make sure you are on the right track, or to design a schedule–the answer is yes! We have helped several students gain a huge advantage by virtue of just one meeting.

4. Achieve your goals.

Depending on your reasons for going to law school, your grades, especially your first year grades, are incredibly important. Many students find that investing in a tutor to assist them with  key skills like time management, substantive law and exam prep, inevitably ended up helped them get the high grades necessary for their dream jobs.

Other students utilize our online law school tutoring program for other aspects of their legal career — for example, they will practice oral arguments in front of us for their moot court tryouts or for their 1L oral arguments. There are several ways you can utilize online law school tutoring — and we are more than happy to tailor a program to you and your goals!

5. Guidance.

One major complaint from law students is that many of them have no clue if they understand critical class material or if they are studying the right way. This is usually because most courses have one exam at the end that dictates the grade for the whole course.

Hiring a law school tutor can give you guidance when you are feeling lost. So, you can work with a tutor on practice exams and hypotheticals and get individualized feedback. Doing this not only prepares you to perform your best on the actual exam, but it also reduces your stress by boosting your confidence—because you know you are doing what you need to do to succeed!

6. Flexible & Convenient.

Hiring an online tutor saves time, is flexible and convenient. If you meet online—you don’t have to drive anywhere! So you aren’t wasting time getting ready, sitting in traffic, or trying to park. Hiring an online tutor also means you never have to leave the comfort of your own home.

Plus, you can use us as you need us. For example, some students meet us once a week for a couple hours at a time. But many students hire us to work with them online every day for 30 minutes. This way we can quickly review or go over what they need without having to commit a huge amount of time to the session.
