The LSAT is a challenging test, but I know that with hard work, consistency, and patience, you can do it! I scored within the top 3% of scorers and I love teaching the LSAT. I am comfortable in helping you in reading comprehension, logical reasoning, and analytical reasoning/logic games. I have even invented a few easy-to-learn techniques to help you along the way!

About Melinda E.

Hi, there! My name is Mel. I've been teaching private lessons since 2007 in music.

However, I don't teach music anymore and actually love teaching the LSAT. I scored in the top 3% and am currently a law school applicant. So far I have been admitted to Arizona State and University of Georgia, so I'm happy to talk about the application process as well!

I've had some bad musicn instructors in the past, that's why I am so glad I found Mel! She is very patient and the cool part is that she can teach me two instruments in on lesson!

Melinda was a sweet patient teacher since I knew nothing about playing a guitar. She taught me the basic fundamentals so it clicked, I definitely would have her as my teacher again! Thanks Melinda

After shopping around for the perfect music teacher, Melinda is exactly what we were looking for. She makes her students feel comfortable and gets them excited to learn by meeting them at their level of learning and energy! She even made little cartoon characters for her students so they feel like they are truly a part of her lessons. I thought that was so creative! She has a lot of experience with kids, too, seeing as she has been tutoring foster children for awhile now as a volunteer, so we knew she had a passion for teaching children. That's SO important to us.

She is not only patient, but fun! Kids actually ENJOY learning with her. We highly recommend her for piano and singing.
