I had Matthew (Lau) for my LSAT course. It's for PowerScore, and in Toronto.

Matt was amazing. Hilarious guy. Highly recommended. He's spoken of very highly in canadian law schools message boards too.

You did the weekend prep right? there is no summer long course like the states?

do you know if he is the same one for montreal classes?

Nope, I did the full length. PowerScore has full length courses in Toronto. I took mine last October, Matt said he's been teaching here for a while.

Yeah he did mention that he teaches the Montreal (weekend, only Toronto has full length) ones too, but he said usually they don't have enough people

<shameless plug>

I am currently being indoctrinated in the ways of the LSAT by none other than Trent Teti, of Blueprint Prep.  He is second to none.  Although I personally do not ascribe to him any properties of deity, people in class do worship him.  Why?  Aside from the excellent, stimulating, and sound instruction, Trent is freaking HILARIOUS and keeps the entire class laughing hysterically throughout each session.  It is not just an LSAT preparation course, it is an experience.  It is both great education and great entertainment, simultaneously wrapped up into one spicy burrito for your consumption.  Trent is the LSAT sage.  I firmly and resolutely pronounce that I would not want anybody else as an LSAT prep course instructor.  Now, I hope I wasn’t too equivocal in my assessment for all of you … :P ;D ;)

Although I'm not sure if I buy into the huge Trent hype, I will definitely agree with NAZ that humour is huge when it comes to the course (I also heard the Persian joke he made, I have to admit, though racist, it is pretty damn funny).
That's also why our class liked Matt too

Don't leave us in suspense, what's the Persian Joke?

I used a tutoring company out of Ann Arbor called LSAT Perfection.  I found it pretty effective and affordable.  I had a couple regular sessions with them, and then worked with them online afterwards when I left the area.  I ended up raising my score significantly.  (I had taken Kaplan earlier, but it only got me up to the low 160's.)  The main tutor I worked with (Mr. Lesko) was a former Testmasters instructor.
