After only 4 total tutoring sessions with Kevin Lin throughout 6 weeks, I made a 10 point improvement. What makes him so good? Three things: (1) personalized lessons, (2) his experience, and (3) the positive mood. To personalize lessons, Kevin observed me do practice problems during sessions in order to identified my specific weaknesses. He then used this information to make specific recommendations for my study plan in between sessions--this accelerated my progress big time. Another thing that makes him so good is his experience. Kevin Lin is the most credentialed LSAT tutor out there: he has a perfect 180 LSAT and has tutored for 10+ years. For him, tutoring isn't a temporary gig--it's his craft and passion. His knowledge of past tests is encyclopedic, and he uses it to make tailored lesson plans. Last, Kevin's teaching style creates a positive mood. Before working with Kevin, I resented the LSAT. But Kevin's encouragement, down-to-earth personality, and sense of humor made the process feel rewarding and turned the LSAT into an approachable challenge. The most important thing to know about Kevin is that he does this because he loves it--and that's the hardest thing to find in an educator.

Kevin is an incredible tutor! His expert knowledge of the LSAT paired with his easy-to-follow teaching style and patience were instrumental in my success on the test. Kevin went above and beyond in his explanations and advice. Thanks to him, I improved 14 points from my initial diagnostic and will be attending a T5 law school this fall! I recommend Kevin and Luminate LSAT with no hesitation, whatsoever!

If I could give more than five stars I would! Kevin gave me enormous help during my LSAT preparation. To understand why I got certain questions wrong, I initially read many answer explanations online and purchased books that contain explanations. However, none of them were as helpful and clear as the explanations Kevin gave.
He was not only extremely helpful but also very encouraging. As LSAT test takers, test preparation can be frustrating at times. However, I always felt so refreshed and energized after meeting with him. He truly believed in me.
I ended up with a score I am very proud of. My work finally paid off. I am very grateful for Kevin's guidance.

164 on 3rd take after major prep course and self-study -> 170 after tutoring with Kevin
I got my score today and I got a 170!!! I was really surprised because I was expecting something much lower, and even though I was averaging around 168, I didn't think I would score on the higher end of my practice exams. I'm SO relieved and I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I really want to thank you for all your help for the past year, I don't think I could have done it without you!
