Meet Your Rockstar Instructors
Tons of students used to have to flock to classrooms around the country to learn from Blueprint’s rockstar LSAT instructors, and why wouldn’t they? Now, you need only flock to your computer or mobile device to get that same expertise and hands-on instruction.
All of our Live LSAT instructors scored 170 or better on an officially administered LSAT, have gone through extensive training in the Blueprint method, and are vetted for their ability to engage and entertain in addition to their ability to teach and answer tough questions.
Dylan attended Yale, where he represented the university's debate team and became the second person ever to be both a national debate champion and North American debate champion, and the only American undergrad to win Cambridge University's invitational tournament. He also found time to study philosophy; upon graduation, he realized the local philosophy factory wasn’t hiring, and found work as a used car salesman, an online poker pro, and an MCAT instructor. Before long, Dylan found his true passion: teaching the LSAT. Dylan has taught countless one-on-one tutoring students and 50 LSAT courses with Blueprint since 2011, helping his students understand the LSAT, improve their score, and attend law school. Dylan believes strongly in using anticipation to find the right answer. He believes that putting the work in early in the upfront questions pays off later on. He also believes strongly in using his dog Spaghetti as an example whenever possible to help clarify difficult concepts on the exam.
Jenny taught her first LSAT class in 2002, while still an undergrad at Stanford University. She worked as a paralegal, completed a JD and MBA at UT Austin, passed the California and Texas bar exams, and practiced law as a mergers and acquisitions associate in California, Tokyo, and Texas before landing her dream job as investment counsel to a government agency. Along the way, Jenny has collected accolades for her effective teaching and mentoring (of LSAT students, law students, and junior associates). She believes an investment in LSAT preparation should pay dividends not only in the form of a higher score but also in the form of improved analytical skill, time management, and mental focus—abilities that will serve you well on test day and for years to come.
Linette spent most of her childhood on her grandparents’ farm in Romania before learning English and moving to the U.S. as a teenager. She eventually entered La Sierra University as a pre-dental student, but soon decided she felt more comfortable examining oral testimony than oral cavities, and switched majors to pre-law. After graduating and earning a 175 on the LSAT, Linette joined Blueprint as an instructor April 2019, leading many Live Online and in-person Blueprint LSAT courses.
Spencer grew up among the concrete playgrounds of New York City, before retreating to the comparatively bucolic idylls of Western Massachusetts at Amherst College, where he studied philosophy. After a stint as a middle school science teacher back in N.Y., Spencer made his way westward, to pursue a Ph.D. in English at UCLA. Spencer has taught over 40 in-person and Live Online courses for Blueprint since 2012, helping literally thousands of pre-law students improve their LSAT scores.
Thom attended Davidson College, and later Johns Hopkins University, studying mathematics and applied economics. A true data wonk, Thom has worked in think tanks in D.C., analyzing statistics to write many technical public health papers. But the data Thom cares about most are his students’ LSAT scores. Thom has been an instructor and tutor at Blueprint since January 2019 (and an LSAT and GRE tutor since 2013), helping his students earn impressive score increases, whether working one-on-one or in many Live Online and D.C.-based in-person courses. In his classes, Thom likes to find creative ways to clarify complex LSAT topics, so his students can make quick, concrete progress on each section of the LSAT.
