S.R., Esq., passed the February 2018 California Bar Examination (lowest pass rate in at least 67 years!)

May 18, 2018 will always be one of the most memorable days of my life because, thanks to Steven, I passed the California bar!!! I was a high achiever in law school, and I did well in every single class, so when I failed the July 2017 exam, I was heartbroken and felt defeated.

S.J., Esq., passed the February 2018 California Bar Examination (lowest pass rate in at least 67 years!)

This was my first time taking the CA bar exam and the second bar exam I have taken. I knew I needed a tutor to help me stay on track since I would be working while studying. I was particularly looking for a tutor with an outstanding essay preparation program and trusted in Steven at the recommendation of a former classmate and after hearing about his rigorous essay writing schedule, essay review week, PT program and prior experience teaching for Barbri. I am happy to say I passed the exam and I largely attribute my success to the essay skills I learned from Steven. 

Monica B., Esq., passed the February 2018 California Bar Examination (lowest pass rate in at least 67 years!)

After failing the Bar the first time, a good friend recommended that I talk to Steven.  After our first conversation on the phone, I knew that I wanted to work with him.  Steven was incredibly supportive and confident as we moved through bar prep together. 

 

Y.N., Esq., passed the February 2018 California Bar Exam (lowest pass rate since at least 1951!)

Trust the process!  Seriously.  I highly recommend Steven Harris as a tutor.  His tips and tricks made the bar exam so much more approachable and less daunting the second time around. 

The first time I took the bar exam, I had failed by a very small margin.  I was upset and disappointed.  Steven understood everything I was going through and was there to pick up the pieces and was so instrumental in helping me move forward.

Ally Bragg, Esq., WINNIN' TIME!

Steven's guidance and book, WINNIN' TIME!, were instrumental in my success in passing the July 2017 California Bar Exam. Steven taught a Critical Studies class at UC Hastings, where he taught us the best way to write bar essays. Prior to his class, I did not know the examiners were looking for a particular format or method.

Robin Courtney, Esq., passed the July 2017 California Bar Examination

Steven’s one-on-one tutoring was the essential element which enabled me to clear the hurdle of passing the July 2017 California Bar Exam.  Specifically, Steven’s technique of issue spotting by reviewing 100’s of sample bar exam hypotheticals and using his “Trigger Method” reduced my fear of issue spotting on the essay section of the exam and gave me the confidence I needed to pass.  I highly recommend hiring Steven as a tutor.  His approach is comprehensive and will significantly increase your chances of passing the exam.
