Scott Miller

Raleigh-Durham, NC


  • Daytona State College

Scott helped write and edit The 5 lb. Book of LSAT Practice Drills, our 5th Edition LSAT Strategy Guides, and our free email series, “The Brief.” In his role as manager of training programs, Scott helps our new instructors hone their teaching skills and refine their understanding of the LSAT, while also developing training for our veteran instructors.

Scott has over 20 years of experience as a teacher and trainer, and a love for teaching that led to some interesting careers. If there is such a thing as a “typical” LSAT instructor, Scott is 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 international 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. Scott helped people from all over the world improve their computer skills as an online instructor with GCF Global Learning before discovering the LSAT and earning a spot as an instructor with Manhattan Prep.

When he’s not immersed in the LSAT, Scott spends as much time as possible windsurfing, hoping to someday perfect his heli-tack.
