Post: Bar Exam Tutor CA, MD, DC, GA, NY, NJ, MEE and MPT
Posted by Paul Wersant on 11/14/17
Since 2002, I have offered an intensive, one-on-one bar
tutorial course for the bar exam in CA, California, MD,
Maryland, GA, Georgia, NY, New York, NJ, New Jersey and the
MEE and MPT used in many other jurisdictions.
The course focuses upon the essays/MPT for about 3 months,
starting in November and ending about a week prior to the
February bar, covering about one subject per week. This
period allows for a careful and through review of all bar
exam subjects and is twice the length of other courses.
Each week I email a state-specific outline for a specific
bar exam subject and former bar exam essay questions on
that subject. The outlines specify the topics and issues
for each subject actually tested on the bar from 1987 until
now and details the frequency with which the topics and
their issues have been tested. With this focused approach,
you will always be studying the specific material to pass
the bar, rather than learning the entire legal code. I also
provide extensive instruction on the MPT, including an
effective approach for addressing various types of MPTs,
such as drafting legal documents, writing a memorandum or
an opinion letter, for which I also provide former MPT
The student reviews the materials, does the questions and
returns the answers via email, for which I provide detailed
diagnostic feedback via email, as well as additional
questions as necessary to maximize exam performance. The
online email format eliminates travel time and allows the
student to do the homework at the time and place best
suited for the student's study. This format enables a
student to participate in the class at any time or
location. This active learning approach ensures all bar
material is covered and learned through actual practice. By
the end of the class, a student will have done at least
40-50 former essay questions and many MPT questions. I call
during the course to see how the student is doing and to
discuss specific issues they may be having.
With this feedback-based method we can determine any
weaknesses in your exam approach and eliminate them through
this intensive training. Typically, my students work during
the day and have families, so the longer term works well
for them. I am at least as demanding than the examiners
will probably be, so you are well-prepared by exam day.
This class uses an active learning approach because you are
always practicing bar exam skills, rather than just
I am a practicing attorney and experienced tutor who
actually passed the bar in MD, DC, GA and FL and has
successfully tutored many students for the bar, including
repeaters, new students and attorneys in this and other
jurisdictions, using this method and materials, which are
updated to reflect new questions. I have also practiced
many of the areas of law tested on the bar.
I can and will help a student to maximize their performance
and pass the bar.
My prices are extremely reasonable, considering the
personalized quality of the instruction, which is
unavailable in larger commercial courses. This class is
based upon diagnosing and fulfilling the needs of
individual bar candidates.

I look forward to working with you.
