“Have you done all the courses and feel like you have been studying for months, but still aren’t satisfied with your LSAT mark? This is how I felt. After writing my December 2016 LSAT, I knew I needed to find help understanding the LR more. I started working with Peg a week after my December LSAT, and achieved a 17 POINT INCREASE when I re-wrote in February. This is how quick and efficient Peg’s work is. She is passionate and actually wants to see you succeed. I just wish I found her sooner.” Taylor, Wilfrid Laurier University
“Peg does not simply prepare you for the LSAT; she teaches you the how to think critically at a very high level. This is a skill that is absolutely necessary for scoring well on the LSAT and for the study of law.
“As a textbook author and tutor of logic and reasoning, Peg is always enthusiastic and energetic during sessions. These are contagious qualities. Peg makes the LSAT fun (or at least, less awful).
“Note: you get out of these sessions what you put into them. While Peg may be the most brilliant LSAT tutor out there, it is up to you to do the work.
“As far as stats go, I came to Peg scoring in the 148-152 range and increased to 160-168, writing 12 prep tests in a row, scoring in the 160s every time! I was able to duplicate this success on test day and walked out with a 161.

“When I started looking for an LSAT tutor, I found myself in an ocean of big name crash courses with promises of glorious, immediate results, and high dollar local tutors who didn’t know what ‘LSAT’ meant. And then I found Peg Tittle. Once I learned that she wrote a book about critical thinking and reasoning (Critical Thinking: An Appeal to Reason, Routledge 2011) and that she was a previous writer for LSAC employed to write questions for the LSAT exams, I was intrigued. After speaking with her on the phone, I was sold.
“We arranged our first conference call tutoring session, and I was extremely happy with her presentation and precise articulation of the material needed to understand each of the three different question types. She is a brilliant teacher. I looked forward to our sessions, and I believe that without Peg’s tutoring and meticulous answers to every question I asked, I would not have succeeded on the LSAT exam. After just a couple months of intensive work with Peg, I scored a 169 on my first practice test.
“I highly recommend Peg to any student, anywhere in the country, either fresh out of college or non-traditional like myself. Please consider her before purchasing any of the crash courses. You will not be disappointed!” Pete Baldwin, President, Platinum Realty Network, Law School Candidate
“I wish I’d found you sooner! Without you, I was lost! You’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me!” Hailey B., law-school-student-wannabe
“Peg is a fabulous tutor! Patient, animated, and very thorough, phone tutoring sessions with Peg were extremely helpful in preparing for the LSAT. I didn’t just learn how to answer LSAT questions, I learned to understand them, which eventually helped me to improve both my consistency and confidence.
“Studying for the LSAT is challenging, exhausting, and often frustrating. Peg assured me that I could achieve success … She was always willing to answer all of my questions, and took time to ensure that I really understood the whole of the question, including the right and wrong answers. This made me always look forward to our phone conversations. … Eventually it was like having a regular conversation (and sometimes a debate!) rather than stressful studying.
“… Without a doubt, I came a long way with Peg, and I am really thankful I was able to find this valuable resource.” Maddie Pearlman, LSAT tutee
“Peg is amazing! Her extensive experience both as a former writer of LSAT questions and as a teacher of critical thinking at the university level positions her perfectly to coach students as they prepare to take the LSAT. I found her tutorials supremely helpful; the fact that she teaches over the phone and via Skype allowed for extra flexibility in scheduling that made things a lot easier while I was working full time, travelling, and preparing to take the exam. In addition, her wit and sense of humour made the tutorials very enjoyable. I highly recommend her as a tutor to anyone preparing to take the LSAT!” Claire H.
“Hearing Peg think out loud is priceless! She verbally articulates how she arrived at a conclusion from the given premises. This helped me to see the logical connections between the premise and conclusion, especially the unstated premises, which can be extremely hard to identify but very necessary to understand in order to grasp how the argument goes.” C. L., LSAT tutee
“Just started law school this week and … in my first lecture, critical thinking was brought up (of course). Really took me back to our very first tutoring session … What a life long skill I now have, thanks to you. T.C., first year law
“After completing Kaplan LSAT 2014 Strategies, I was unimpressed. I chose Peg because of her history of writing LSAT questions and teaching background. She helped me understand the psychology behind the questions while gaining speed and accuracy. I absolutely recommend her and her no-nonsense approach.” Emily, 163, June 2014
“Thanks so very much Peg for supporting me through my LSAT preparation! No gimmicks or ’10 steps to LSAT success’ here, just good, solid guidance from a very experienced and effective LSAT tutor. Peg’s book is fantastic and this foundation of understanding from an academic perspective is invaluable. With Peg, you are actually learning about logic, not just trying to find a way to hack through the test. This made the tutoring sessions much more interesting, and helped me to remember what I learned through understanding, not just by rote.” Daniel G., LSAT tutee, Melbourne, Australia
“I received tutoring from Peg for several months and the effect was outstanding. Simply put, my analytical thinking improved greatly, as our work together refined my skills. With Peg’s help, I was able to improve my score by more than 15 points and gain admission to the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
“While our tutoring sessions improved my LSAT score, I am significantly more satisfied with its effect on my everyday life. During conversations with clients or peers in my professional career, I am more able to utilize my improved logical skills to better serve my clients and myself. It has its “downside” as well, since I have been more aware of the logical gaps friends and relatives make during their arguments. Passionate and emotionally powerful arguments no longer maintain their power, as my work with Peg has helped me pierce through the lack of logical substance. It is for these reasons of practical utility that I suggest students engage in tutoring sessions with Peg.
“The LSAT is a temporary hurdle to overcome. But the skills you refine and attain with the help of Peg are of everlasting use. K. P., LSAT Tutee, U of Penn Law School
“I began tutoring sessions with Peg in early August, after having done a little preparation myself (I was getting scores in the high 140s and low 150s, and was struggling to improve). Her approach to LSAT tutoring, from the early stages to the week of the test, was incredibly effective and manageable. She trains you how to think in order to do well on the LSAT, and helps you develop the tools you need to answer the questions in the 35-minute time restraint – which is something I thought for sure I wouldn’t be able to do. After working through my weaknesses and implementing her plan for stamina-building and taking full, 5-section timed tests, I went very calmly into the LSAT and walked away with my target score of 167: a whole 20 points higher than when I was studying independently! I would recommend her to anyone preparing for the LSAT.” Jaime M., legally-blonde-wannabe
“Tutoring sessions with Peg are amazing! When I first read that Peg’s tutoring sessions were over the phone (or Skype in cases of bad phone connection), I was hesitant as to how it would work out. After our first session, however, this concern was put right to bed! Peg explains and articulates her process so well. Along with hearing her verbalize her thought process, she makes sure you really understand the question, what it’s asking for and why a certain answer is the correct one. I have now done prep lessons both with a prep company and with Peg, and I can say without a doubt that I felt much more confident going into the LSAT after my lessons with Peg.” Ryan Holland, Dalhousie Law
“I just received my LSAT score … 11 whole points higher than my previous score!! This is well beyond what I thought I would get, and I would not have been even close to achieving this if it had not been for your help. Just wanted to take the time to extend my gratitude to you, especially for the patience it took to work with me. If anyone ever asks if I know any good tutors, I will absolutely be recommending your services.” Anthony L., law school bound
“I’m really grateful that I found your book. It is an invaluable resource. I have read other books about logic in my attempt to master the LSAT, so I have a frame of reference when comparing your book to others. Your book and the LSAT fit like a key and lock; the concepts and logic discussed are so perfectly matched to my needs for understanding the LSAT. I find the logic can be challenging, but your book is written in manner that is very accessible; it’s entertaining and informative. Like the SuperPrep explanations, this book is ‘straight from the horse’s mouth’ so to speak.” Catia L., student
“Critical Thinking: An Appeal to Reason gives students an extremely clear explanation for difficult logical arguments. This book is significantly easier to understand than other logic books I have read in the past.” Josh D., student
“Critical Thinking: An Appeal to Reason is a brilliant book that actually teaches you to ‘think differently’. The book starts with teaching you how to think critically, then how to structure an argument, then how to manage all of the intricacies in between. It gets even better with Peg’s articulate use of humor throughout the text. At the conclusion of this book, you will feel as though you have just completed a university level philosophy, logical reasoning, and debate class all in rolled into one. I highly recommend this book to any person studying for the LSAT exams and for anyone entering into law school.” Pete Baldwin, President, Platinum Realty Network, Law School Candidate
“As a student who has previously taken a critical thinking course using another textbook, I found this particular textbook extremely helpful and easy to understand. The way it breaks down how to recognize and understand an argument allows any reader to comprehend what the book is explaining.” Brittany F., student
“The exercises make the concepts really clear.” Brian W., student
