    Pawel Slabiak—Private Tutor, New York
    B.A. in Philosophy, Magna Cum Laude, City College of the City University of New York

    Talking to him you would never guess, but Pawel is a native of Poland. He believes he was born American – it's just that he had to get here, and pledge allegiance. Upon scoring a 175 on the LSAT, Pawel has spent thousands of hours teaching LSAT courses and tutoring one-on-one, and has seen his students achieve impressive score improvements. With The Princeton Review since 2004, Pawel loves to help prospective graduate students study for the LSAT, GMAT, GRE or MCAT. He has also prepared students for the SAT, SAT Subject Tests and PSAT, both in New York and Spain (he speaks Spanish, too.) A generally curious young man, Pawel wrote his senior thesis on the foundations of logical and mathematical knowledge.
