“I cannot overstate the value Lisa brought to my bar preparation, especially as it relates to the MPT. The first time I took the bar, I bombed the MPT scoring a 1 and 2 on each essay. Lisa came in and gave me a crystal clear game plan on how to approach the MPT. It was decisive, it was systematic, and a well-thought-out approach that I felt extremely confident with on the day of the bar exam. Every single MPT that was assigned, she walked me through what I did correctly and how to change certain areas to maximize my points. It paid dividends and I would recommend her to anyone.”

“Having a tutor who can adapt and remain committed to your overall objective of passing the bar is what Lisa offered.  I am 100% certain that I would not have passed the bar if it were not for my JD Advising tutor Lisa.”

“[Lisa] tested my understanding of the rules, she gave me essays to write under exam conditions and she graded my essays and gave me feedback at our private zoom meetings. [She] tested my memorization of the rules and made sure I was ready for the exam.”

“[O]ne-on-one tutoring with Lisa greatly helped reinforce tricky subjects and rebuild my confidence prior to re-taking.”

Jonathan is a proud Detroiter, an avid runner, and is happiest with his wife and three children.

“I started my bar exam studying with one of the big box programs, and it seemed to be going well. Halfway through the summer, I noticed that my mock exams and multiple choice results were not increasing much, and I found myself making some of the same mistakes. I turned to J.D. Advising and purchased one of their private tutoring programs. My tutor was Jonathan and he made studying for the bar much more efficient by making the material I was struggling with easier to understand. From the first session, I realized that I made the right decision to go with J.D. Advising. Scheduling my sessions was easy, even on short notice. I would definitely recommend J.D. Advising to any bar exam taker, especially if you find yourself stalling out on certain topics. With their help, I was able to pass the exam on my first go.”

“After working with Jonathan, I earned grades high enough to land a summer associate position at a big law firm as a 1L.”

“I have been working with Jonathan throughout my 1L Spring semester, and he has been a great help to me in Property & Constitutional Law! We have worked through numerous subjects in these courses and have broken them down into easy-to-grasp concepts and how to apply them in practice, along with honing my outlines in preparation for my final exam. I highly recommend him!”

“Before meeting Jonathan, I was in the dark about how to succeed in law school. After a lackluster first 1L semester, Jonathan immediately helped by solving my most immediate problems with clear steps that would ensure success. He explained concepts that were difficult into simplified, easily digestible, and memorable lectures. He encouraged me whenever I was doubtful and professionally eased my worries always calming me down. Jonathan was a worthy investment to my law school education!”

“I was really struggling with the topic of today’s session. But Julia was so patient and helpful! I know I have a lot of work to do, but I really felt better after this session.”

“Julia was well prepared and tailored the class to whatever I felt would be the most helpful for me.”

“Julia was very sweet and non-judgmental!”

“I was very worried about the bar exam because I had a lot going on personally and the bar prep course I had was not working for me. All I knew is that I did not want to take this test again! I used JD Advising when I took the MPRE and received a great score. I had already been using the free materials and attended the free practice sessions. When my family was going through yet another obstacle, I knew that I needed extra help. I purchased one-pagers and later the outlines plus tutoring with Julia. It was the best investment I could have made. The one-pagers were great for quick review at the end of my studies for the day. The outlines were easy to follow and memorize. Julia was patient and understanding, allowing me to vent and helping me see the progress I was making when everything else in my life was falling apart. I am forever grateful for JD Advising. I know I couldn’t have passed the bar (with a score high enough to be licensed in any UBE jurisdiction) without you! Thank you all so much!”

“Rachael is also very knowledgeable.  She has a great understanding of the law and content that is tested on the UBE.  Rachael was able to help me better understand the content tested on the UBE and improve my writing skills, which made me feel more prepared than I was the first time I took the bar exam.
