SHANA GINSBURG, ESQ.
FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT
LSAT - GRE - PRAXIS - ASVAB - SAT/ACT
My name is Shana Ginsburg, Esq., Founder and President of Ginsburg Advanced Tutoring. I received a BA in Public Policy and English, and a teaching certification, from Duke University.
I worked as a high school English teacher before attending University of Maryland School Law to study school law and trial advocacy. During my entire academic and professional career, I have tutored students who under-perform on standardized tests, helping students in the bottom and top percentiles to overcome anxiety-inducing obstacles to their test success.
I have a 100% success rate in helping eligible students receive disability accommodations, improving test scores, and increasing chances of acceptances and scholarship awards from top-tier institutions. I have helped students with disabilities gain acceptance to Harvard, Georgetown, Columbia, UNC-Chapel Hill, and other top programs across the United States. Ginsburg Advanced Tutoring combines my love of tutoring, teaching and law, and is my way of improving the test preparation industry for students who are too often shamed or ignored.

I graduated from GW Law School in 2016 and I'm a recently licensed attorney in Washington, D.C. I love tutoring because as a first generation attorney, I understand the difficulties of navigating through standardized exams and the importance of an understanding tutor and mentor to help along the way.
During law school, I participated in the school's mentorship program and tutored students in several courses. Prior to law school, I taught at Better World Foundation, an Egyptian organization that offered free English classes in poverty stricken areas. Through these experiences, I have learned how to tutor students with varied backgrounds and learning styles.
GRE MATH INSTRUCTOR
I'm a graduate from University of Calgary with a Mechanical Engineering degree in 2011. Been working in the industry close to 10 years and progressed my career in various different roles and industries. I learned the importance of tutoring at a young age when I needed a tutor. It helped me with my learning abilities and how to process my learning curve in different ways. The importance of a mentor was key for me.
During my studies in Engineering, I had the ability to teach individuals who had difficult times in courses that I had taken in the past. It was very rewarding knowing that I could help my fellow Engineers. I look forward to helping you to the best of my abilities!
I am Jose Daniel Juarez, a graduate of Stanford University (class of 2012) and GW Law School (class of 2016), and a licensed attorney in both D.C. and Maryland. I was primarily in private practice until transitioning to the public service in 2020. I hope to use my more regular schedule to assist aspiring law students navigate through the obstacles surrounding standardized exams such as the LSAT.
As the first person from an immigrant family to attend law school, my path to becoming an attorney was difficult as I had to learn every step without the benefit of any older mentors. However, I hope to use my own experiences to help the next generation of law students succeed by guiding them through the obstacles I once faced.
I graduated with a BA in Political Science from the University of Pennsylvania in 2017, and I am a Ginsburg Advanced Tutoring alum who scored a 177 on the LSAT and was accepted into Harvard, Yale, NYU and Georgetown for law school. I am passionate about the LSAT because of the amount I learned studying for the test, and I tutor because I understand how stressful testing can be without the right support.
In college, I volunteered in high schools in Philadelphia, leading enrichment activities in the classroom and tutoring. Since graduating, I have led classes on a variety of topics from mindfulness to advance care planning for adults, and teach whole wellness classes for middle school students.

I graduated from Towson University in 2020 with a dual bachelors in Elementary and Special education. I am currently a Special Educator (kindergarten and second grade) in Harford County Public Schools. As an individual with multiple disabilities that impacted my educational experience, I understand the different forms of anxiety that can come with standardized testing. I also understand the difference a supportive tutor or mentor can make while working towards taking a standardized test.
As an Elementary Special Educator, I believe patience and understanding for my students is the key to supporting them in the way they need. I have experience working with students who have learning disabilities, anxiety disorders, down syndrome and autism with that said I understand and love how we all learn differently. My goal is to help students learn in a way that best fits them as an individual.
My name is Patrick–I am a professional writer and an LSAT enthusiast. I was a Presidential Scholar at Villanova University, and I graduated in 2019 with a degree in Peace and Justice Studies. My time as an undergraduate solidified my love for teaching. Whether it was helping someone craft a graduate school personal statement, develop their confidence as a writer, or simply improve their study habits, I delighted in helping students reach their academic goals. I am thrilled to bring this passion to bear on my work as a member of the Ginsburg Advanced Tutoring team.
I am particularly excited about Ginsburg Advanced’s leadership in collaborating with students with disabilities. Having navigated an anxiety disorder for most of my life, I know firsthand the challenges that differently abled students face when it comes to standardized testing. There was a time when I thought of the LSAT and law school admissions process as an almost insurmountable barrier; this fall, however, I’ll be attending the University of Virginia Law School. I genuinely believe that studying for the LSAT should be fun and rewarding, and I look forward to working together to make sure that this is true of your LSAT journey.
I recently graduated magna cum laude from Amherst College with a BA in Economics and French.

I was accepted into multiple top law schools, and I will attend University of Southern California (USC) Gould School of Law in Fall 2022 on a merit scholarship.

I’ve also worked as a ski instructor, private tutor, and essay editor for college applicants. Through my experience, I’ve tutored and assisted many students across various disciplines.

I studied Comparative Literature at Sarah Lawrence College and graduated in 2019. I love teaching and have worked as a classroom assistant, au pair, and private tutor. Since autumn 2021, I have worked with LSAT clients across the U.S. and Canada representing a variety of life stages, educational backgrounds, and learning styles. The LSAT is learnable and consistent, and I am dedicated to helping clients develop a sense of mastery over the material. I am especially keen to address mindset and the underlying beliefs that shape our test-taking habits. I have helped many clients prepare successful personal statements for law school applications and scholarship opportunities. It is deeply rewarding to build relationships and offer support through all facets of the law school admissions process. I am so happy to be working with Ginsburg Advanced, where holistic, individualized attention is the norm.
