Hi, my name is Matt and I'm a Harvard Law graduate offering 1-1 LSAT coaching. I scored a 179 (50/50 in Logical Reasoning) and I absolutely love helping dedicated students acheive their dreams.
That's why I founded LSAT Cracked (

Why Am I Passionate About Improving Your LSAT Score?

1. Two months of serious study took me from a 161 to a 179 and changed the trajectory of my life.

2. I believe this test is absolutely learnable and your return on investment can range upwards of $750/hr
(200 hours of self-study; $150k scholarship).

3. Getting better at the core skills this test measures is one of the most broadly applicable life upgrades
you can acquire (whether or not you go to law school and whether or not you practice as a lawyer).

My Mission

To get you into your dream law school, with a scholarship.

About Me

I'm an entrepreneur, attorney, and coach. I graduated from Harvard Law with honors, and before that majored in history at UC Irvine, played professional poker and taught the LSAT. The LSAT made it possible for me to go from an undifferentiated liberal arts major to being highly in demand from today's top companies. When I decided that working at a top-10 biglaw firm wasn't making me happy, I leveraged my law degree and interviewing skills to land a job in business development at Palantir Technologies, an extremely selective Silicon Valley technology company. After four years there, I decided that I wanted to combine my previous education, work experience and love of teaching, so I founded LSAT Cracked.

"Simply the best. Matt is not only an LSAT test-taking master himself but he is also a master at teaching it to others. He knows why students make certain types of mistakes and how to correct them by showing you why each right answer is correct and why each wrong answer is wrong. He also provided me with invaluable advice and holistic coaching on attacking all aspects of the test. It’s this extra boost that took me from the mid-150's (even after taking other mass market courses) and propelled me into the high 160's and got me full scholarship offers at elite schools. I felt Matt cared deeply about me throughout the process including applications, school selection, and scholarship negotiations."

Justin M.

"Matt is by far the best tutor I have ever had. He is incredibly skilled at conveying complicated issues and ideas in a very clean and clear way, and is able to quickly identify areas where a test-taker can make the biggest improvement with minimal effort. Even though I had already taken the most elite LSAT prep class in Southern California, Matt still helped me improve my score by 8 points on the second try. I absolutely would not have ended up at UC Irvine Law (with a $90,000 scholarship) without his invaluable tutoring."

Tamina D.

"Matt was an excellent instructor. He was able to teach both broad foundational skills as well as specific tips and tricks to dramatically improve my LSAT score. He also succeeded in making the LSAT seem like a fun challenge instead of an insurmountable obstacle to my admission to law school. I would not have been admitted to the University of Michigan Law School without his help!"

Sean K.

"The LSAT Cracked process helped me understand my mistakes rather than be frustrated by them. After two months I saw my practice test scores jump 10 points thanks to Matt's help on my weakest section, logical reasoning. The tips and tricks Matt has shared with me have been applicable not only to this test, but also to the way I process information on a daily basis. Thanks Matt."

Ariana K.

"Matt is hands-down one of the best teachers I've ever had. He has this gift where he can sense exactly what I'm struggling with when I can't put it into words myself. Furthermore, he quickly adapts his teaching style to your learning style and makes sure he gets the point across in a way that makes sense to you. Before Matt, I was using books that claimed to be short and sweet, but Matt was able to refine these strategies to make them much clearer and easier. Best of all, Matt is very well-rounded and lively; he makes the test seem like a fun game, which implicitly makes you want to work harder without even realizing it. Sometimes he'll even drop some great life advice as well. If you have any doubts about your current study methods, save your time and go with Matt!"

Raivo A.

"Despite what I had read on the internet and learned from veteran LSAT-takers about the difficulty of the test, Matt made me feel confident from the start that I could take this test and do well with less than four months of preparation. Matt has a thorough understanding of the test and his extensive experience working with students is reflected in his ability to make even the more ‘abstract’ concepts on the test seem tangible. With me, he did not sound out every lesson in his book. Instead, he advised my study strategy, and helped me quickly identify and work through gaps in my 'LSAT skillset'. I can honestly say, it would have required much more time to do this in my own or through a structured course. In short, Matt has been indispensable to my LSAT prep journey.

Gavin M.

"Matt was a fantastic LSAT tutor in a one-on-one setting. He provided an organized study plan that helped me achieve my goals, and he approached the topics with dedication and precision. But equally important, Matt was easy-going, friendly, and motivating to work with. He had a positive attitude which was vitally important to me given the draining nature of LSAT preparation. I would highly recommend Matt as a tutor for the LSAT!"

Patrick C.

"I reached out to Matt because I felt like I had plateaued with my studying (I was consistently scoring -6 or -7 per LR section). By the time I was done working with Matt I was only missing a few questions throughout both LR sections combined. Additionally, Matt’s method and attitude for teaching the material and coaching me through it was the greatest benefit of it all: unlike the other course I had taken, our time spent one-on-one allowed him to identify when and where I was struggling, even if I said otherwise. From there, we would then devote the proper amount of time to it until I understood it and could explain it back to him. This format gave me the confidence and ability to implement new techniques in my approach to questions on LSAT and allowed me to learn from my past failed attempts."

Jaime S.

"Thank you Matt! Without Matt's skillful and focused dedication to my LSAT test preparation including the application process, I would never have been accepted to a Top-60 law school with a partial scholarship. I had been out of college for about 15 years in the business world before deciding to attend law school and without Matt's help to get those extra points I would not be an attorney today." ‍
