Scott MillerRaleigh-Durham, NC
- Daytona State College
Scott has over 20 years of experience as a teacher and trainer, and a love for teaching that led him to some interesting careers. If there is such a thing as a “typical” LSAT instructor, he’s probably not one.
Scott started skydiving in college, shamelessly abandoning his plan to be an English teacher to spend sixteen years working as a skydiving instructor. Training people to stay calm and focused while throwing themselves out of airplanes kept him constantly motivated to improve his teaching skills—skills that he now uses to help people stay calm and focused while taking the LSAT.
During his stint as a skydiver, Scott gained a reputation as an innovative trainer. He coached and mentored other instructors, was invited to lecture at major skydiving conferences and events, and ran advanced training courses for elite groups such as the U.S. Army Golden Knights Parachute Team.
A search for a new career landed Scott a job at a wildlife sanctuary, where he taught children about endangered species and trained volunteers to work safely around tigers, leopards, and other dangerous animals. He has also helped people from all over the world improve their computer skills as an online instructor with GCF Global Learning.
Since joining Manhattan Prep, Scott has taught LSAT courses and tutored students in Washington, D.C.; Cambridge, MA; and the Raleigh-Durham area of NC. He helped write and edit Manhattan Prep’s 5th Edition LSAT Strategy Guides and our free LSAT email series, The Brief. As an instructor trainer, Scott helps new instructors hone their teaching skills and refine their understanding of the LSAT. He also serves as Manager of Training Programs, supporting our instructor trainers and developing training programs for our veteran instructors. When he’s not immersed in the LSAT, Scott spends as much time as possible windsurfing, hoping to someday perfect his heli-tack.
“He was an engaging lecturer and did a wonderful job making sure all students participated actively in our sessions.”
“He had a thorough understanding of the material and seemed passionate about wanting to pass that on to the rest of us.”
“Scott was great!”
