The requirements to become an LSAT® tutor or instructor vary by both client and employer. While you will not need a license to offer tutoring services or to be employed by a tutoring or test preparation company, you will typically be expected to have actually taken the LSAT® prior to engaging in tutoring or teaching. In addition, many companies that hire tutors will require you to have earned a very high score on the test, usually in the 98th or 99th percentile, before you can be considered for employment. Employers and clients may also want you to have teaching experience, and some businesses that specialize in providing LSAT® instruction will also require you to complete an in-house training program before you can begin offering tutoring services.

Many people who plan to apply to law school decide that hiring an LSAT® tutor is a wise investment, given the premium that many law school admissions departments place on getting a high score. For this reason, there are many companies that offer classes and one-on-one tutoring to aspiring law students. In addition, students themselves may wish to hire a tutor directly. Whether you want to work for a tutoring company or contract with clients on your own, you can expect to be asked for your resume and proof that you have actually taken the LSAT®, such as a copy of your score results.

Each tutoring or test preparation company sets its own hiring requirements, so if you want to become an LSAT® tutor for a particular firm, visit its website to find out whether any job openings are available. Another option is to search online job boards for open positions. While some of these companies may only be interested in your own experience with taking the test, others may want you to have experience as a teacher or a tutor as well. In most cases, a professional tutoring or preparation company will put you through its own proprietary training. In addition, you may be expected to provide both teach a group of students as well as provide individual tutoring.

If you would prefer to become an LSAT® tutor who works as an independent contractor, you may wish to put up a website that explains your services and credentials. You can post flyers advertising your business around the campuses of area universities and run ads in student newspapers. You may, however, find it easier to get work as a private LSAT® tutor by working for a tutoring company for a few years before beginning to work independently.
