DENNIS HIGA

Private Tutor for the California Bar Exam

CA Bar Exam: All Sections

The California Bar Exam consists of three distinct parts: the Essays portion, the Multistate (MBE) portion, and the Performance Test portion. Each portion is designed to test specific skills so that, taken as a whole, the Bar Exam purports to gauge examinees' proficiency in qualifying them as licensed attorneys.

I provide individual tutoring for all sections of the California Bar Exam. I also provide tutorial services that focus on each specific section of the Bar Exam. For each section, I employ unique and effective methodologies aimed at maximizing your score potential, such as multiple-choice approaches to the MBE or information-gathering techniques for the Performance Test.
