Are you ready to move forward after disappointing California bar exam results? We’re here to help!
I’m Lee Burgess, long-time California bar exam tutor and a creator of the Bar Exam Toolbox. If you recently found out you failed the California bar exam, you’re in the right place.
As I know from working with numerous students over the past 7 years, getting disappointing bar results is a blow — a big blow. It’s normal to be upset, frustrated, angry, scared, panicked, embarrassed — you name it!
But failing the bar exam isn’t the end of the world. Really, it’s not.
With appropriate help, you can regroup and pass on the next try. I know it’s possible, because I’ve seen many students do exactly that!
How We Can Help
Here at the Bar Exam Toolbox, we believe that every student is an individual and we know that different people need and want (and can afford) different levels of assistance. If you’re interested in one-on-one bar tutoring, please take a look at our full packages and contact us for more details.
Retaking the Bar Exam
If you are seeking help after a bar failure, it is crucial that you work with someone who can effectively evaluate what went wrong in your previous bar experience(s) and empower you to be successful in the future.
We believe students are empowered by learning the best way to study based on their individual needs, by getting detailed and constructive feedback, and by practicing and improving the skills necessary to be successful on exam day.
Because we know that bar takers have different budgets, we offer a range of 8- and 10-week tutoring and support options, along with extended options for those who are working and studying or who face other challenges. Contact us to learn more and set up a call to discuss your needs.
Our job isn’t just to tell you how to do it — it is to give you the tools to succeed!
We cannot be in the exam room with you. You are the only one who can produce winning results on exam day. We see our role as empowering you by giving you the skills necessary to be the best exam-taker you can be.
- You will feel confident that you know what a good essay looks like.
- You will be confident you know what a good performance exam essay looks like.
- You will have your plan of how to attack an essay or performance exam.
- You will even have a plan if you don’t remember the law!
If you’re interested in California tutoring, please contact us to set up a complimentary call to discuss what might be helpful.
We look forward to hearing from you!
