Uniform Bar Exam Private Tutoring

JD Advising, law school tutoringIf you are looking for private tutoring for the Uniform Bar Exam, we would love to help you!

We tutor for all three components of the Uniform Bar Exam: the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE), Multistate Essay Exam (MEE), and Multistate Performance Test (MPT).

We have fantastic outlines that are precisely tailored to exactly what you need to know to pass the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE). To see why our MEE outlines are the best, please read this post.  We believe in an efficient approach to bar exam preparation. In addition to providing substantive law assistance, we also provide you with study techniques and habits to maximize your chances of passing the bar exam.

We have helped many first-time takers pass the UBE with points to spare! We have also helped repeat takers increase their score significantly.

Why should I enroll in private tutoring for the Uniform Bar Exam? 

We offer multiple benefits:

  • A study plan that is tailored to your needs and your schedule. We take into account all circumstances — i.e. past bar exam scores, whether you are working or have other obligations, and your comfort level with the material– to figure out the perfect study plan for you. If you meet with us for once-a-week tutoring, you will also receive a study plan each week to ensure you are on track.
  • Stellar outlines that are precisely tailored to the MBE and MEE. We methodically go through the past 20 years’ worth of multistate essay exams and have formulated outlines that are precisely tailored to what is tested on the MEE. We also provide comprehensive outlines for the MBE. Many students say our outlines are “worth their weight in gold” and some students pay for tutoring for the primary reason of having access to well-organized, easy-to-learn, yet comprehensive outlines. (To read more about why our outlines are so good, and to see a sample of our MEE outlines, please see this post.)
  • Multiple-choice strategies so that you see your scores improve through practice (rather than answering a bunch of questions and having your scores stay the same!). We will teach a methodical approach to the MBE so that you see improvement and increase your confidence.
  • Individualized feedback, essay & MPT review. We assign essays and MPTs to make sure you are on track. We help you capitalize upon your strengths and improve your weaknesses. The written portion is worth 50% of your score so we do everything we can to ensure you obtain the highest score possible.
  • MEE and MPT Strategies. We provide strategies to ensure you are structuring your essays for both the MEE and MPT in such a way to maximize the points you receive.
  • Access to a tutor.  Your tutor will answer any questions, provide feedback, and help relieve any anxiety.
  • Accountability. Many students report that knowing that they will be meeting a tutor regularly keeps them accountable and helps them to ensure that they get their work done.

Yes. We will structure our private tutoring program to meet your individual needs. We have several students who choose to meet with us for just one or two portions of the exam.

Some students meet us just once or twice to cover, for example, Real Property, and Contracts. If you opt for a limited number of sessions, we will be happy to send you outlines for the subjects we cover ahead of time as well as provide essay feedback for the subjects assigned.

What do students say about your services?


Which states administer the UBE, MEE, and MPT?

For the upcoming bar exam administration, the following jurisdictions will administer the UBE, MEE, and MPT:

UBE: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts (beginning July 2018), Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, Virgin Islands, Washington, West Virginia, Wyoming.

MEE: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts (beginning July 2018), Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, Wyoming, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, Virgin Islands

MPT: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts (beginning July 2018), Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tenessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, Virgin Islands.

What is the Cost of UBE tutoring?

Multistate Essay Exam: The cost of outlines for all MEE-specific subjects (Agency & Partnership, Corporations & LLCs, Secured Transactions, Conflict of Laws, Decedent’s Estates, Trusts, and Family Law) plus twelve hours of tutoring plus essay grading (approximately 10 essays are assigned total) costs $2,400. You can also pick and choose subjects to cover and we can give you a better idea of pricing if there are only specific ones you are looking for.

Multistate Bar Exam:  One subject matter outline (like Real Property, which is tailored to the MBE and MEE) plus two hours of substantive review with a tutor one-on-one, plus essay grading (approximately 2 essays are assigned per subject) is $400. So if you wanted MBE review for all seven subjects, it is $2,800. You can also pick and choose the subjects you have the most trouble with.

Multistate Performance Test: Our recommendation of quantity and structure of MPT sessions varies per student. The cost is $400 for a two hour session plus 1-2 MPTs graded with written feedback. Some students choose the option of having MPT feedback plus a thirty minute phone call (which is cheaper at $150). It is $80 for only written feedback on an MPT.  Our recommendation depends on your scores and comfort level with the MPT.

If you want “full service” tutoring but want the most for your money, consider signing up for one of the following options:

  • You can sign up for our small-group, elite Uniform Bar Exam course. This course gives you by far the most for your money at $5,500. (It offers 50 hours of instruction, which would ordinarily cost $10,000 for about half that price!)
  • You can sign up for MBE or MPT tutoring and use our MEE course to supplement tutoring for the MBE. (So you could have 7 MBE sessions with a full service MEE course for $5,000.)

Do you offer a study plan?

Yes. We are happy to make you a “birdseye” schedule of the subjects to review. (This is free of charge with tutoring.) If you opt to meet with a tutor very regularly (for example, once a week) we will also give you weekly to-do lists which tell you exactly what outlines to review, which essays to complete, and how many multiple-choice questions to complete in order to pass the bar exam.

Do you offer in-person tutoring for the Uniform Bar Exam? 

Yes, we offer in-person tutoring at our office in Birmingham, Michigan. We also offer online tutoring (using Skype, gChat, or phone).

I am looking for some last-minute MEE help. What can you offer me? 

We offer a one-on-one two-hour overview of the highly-tested MEE issues (as well as a 40-page handout that summarizes these issues). Check out our MEE Seminar for more information. It fills up fast so we recommend that you sign up early if you are interested.

We also have an MEE course which meets covers everything and offers essay grading and feedback. We also offer MEE one-sheets, which give you an overview of the highly-tested areas of the MEE in one sheet, front and back. Read more about our MEE one-sheets here.

We also are happy to review any subjects that you are still having trouble with, any questions you have, or any essays or practice MPTs that you write! See this page for additional written feedback options.
