Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I had the student take a practice logic games section. He struggled with it but learned some valuable lessons about time management in the process. I then had him take a practice logical reasoning section and he did very well. We reviewed both sections."
"This session the student and I worked on logical reasoning again. She took a practice test and scored a 165, which is excellent. She said that she only missed one on the logic games, so we figure that she's got that section down pat. She said that she is doing well on the reading comprehension as well. The logical reasoning proved to be her trickiest section on this test, so we spent most of our time going over the questions and trying to pick out more patterns. For next time, we are going to work on principle questions and assumptions questions to try and make sure that she has a good foundation for answering all types of logical reasoning questions."
"Student did work during session (logic games) and showed marked improvement. Reviewed student's work and discussed how to handle different games and prioritize."
"During today's session with the student, we did a cursory review of the logical reasoning, reading comprehension, logic games, and essay portions of the LSAT. Prior to our final session, I asked her to take a diagnostic every day. She was able to hit a 151, having missed only 9 questions in the logic games section. As of now, the logic games are still her strongest section with reading comprehension her weakest. In working through two reading comprehension passages, I noted that the time pressure affected her performance more than anything else. Given the time to comprehend the passage fully, she usually performs very well on the questions; however, because she fears having not enough time, she tries to rush through reading the passage the first time and therefore has to reread lines of the passage when reading the question stems and answer choices. On logical reasoning, she has all of the skills necessary to do well, but she tends to overthink, often changing her correct answer to an incorrect one and expending more time than is needed per question. After telling her to trust her instinct, she did better on the second half of the questions I provided for today's session. Subsequently, we reviewed a grouping game, on which she performed very well. Her diagramming skills have improved quite considerably. Prior to the end of our session, we looked over a sample writing prompt and reviewed the basics of how to approach an LSAT essay. At the end, I went over any remaining questions she had about the test and advised that she continue to take a diagnostic every day until the day prior to her test."
"LSAT before-the-test form, logic games setups, logical reasoning from practice test, and general test strategies were covered."
"The student powered through some really tough material! We started with a multitude of LR questions, and she crushed it. When we got to RC, she nailed the passage and showed it by not missing a single question. Keep up the good work!"
