Christine Kingston, Esq.
Head MPRE Attorney Instructor
Christine is our newest member of the Team, being with us just over a year. Christine quickly rose to the top of the MPRE Success Ladder as she demonstrated a keen ability to not only help students pass on the first try, but also in taking multiple-takers and demonstrating exactly what they needed to pass. One student, who came to us after 5 times of not passing, achieved a score of 109 by working with Christine. We then knew we needed to term her (much to her horror) the “MPRE Queen.”
Sharon is LawTutors’ office manager and handles all accounts and many operational aspects, as well as student and Attorney Instructor management.
After many successful years as LawTutors office manager, Samantha passed the reigns onto Sharon and decided to consult for LawTutors from afar (Honduras, to be exact!).
Sharyl joined the LawTutors family most recently this past year and keeps our headquarters running smoothly.
