Our Teachers: Gilad Edelman

Gilad Edelman

Gilad is currently a student at Yale Law School, but Manhattan Prep will always be his favorite institution. Before law school he worked from time to time as a jazz saxophonist in New York City.


The owner of a 180 LSAT score, Gilad threw himself into teaching after graduating from Columbia University, when he found himself in need of a part-time gig to sustain his time-consuming habits of saxophone practicing, crossword puzzling, and coffee drinking. He quickly found that, between his lovable students and absurdly talented (and just absurd) colleagues, this is probably the best job he'll ever have.


Nowadays, when he isn't busy teaching for Manhattan Prep, hunching over 19-pound casebooks, or figuring out whether a certain comma needs to be italicized, Gilad can be found honing his cooking skills or looking for someone to practice speaking French or Chinese with. And he still busts the saxophone out from time to time, when the moment is right.

Feedback from Gilad's Recent Students

The LSAT is a difficult exam, and he does a very good job showing you why it is so. Then he goes on to show you how to strategically approach the exam, making the once difficult exam conquerable." --Private Tutoring Student, Summer 2011

Our instructor Gilad was very engaged in the content of the class and always inspired the students with his enthusiasm. He clearly has a great amount of comfort and fluency with the material and is able to share his handle on it effectively."--Student (NYC Summer D 2010)

He is energetic, very knowledgeable and willing to answer any question.  He wants to explain how we arrived at our answers even when the answers are wrong which helps demonstrate what the correct answers are or should be."--Student (NYC Spring A 2011)
