Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This session, the student moved on to the logical reasoning section, but started by going over the logic games that I gave her to work on her own. She did pretty well with them. We went over some strategies and practiced these elements. We will continue to work on logic games in the future, but for now I wanted to start on some logical reasoning with her. We focused on assumptions this time - we went over the basics of arguments (premise, conclusion, inference, assumption) and then talked about strategies for attacking assumption questions specifically. We went through several questions together, and I gave her a few to work on by herself which we will review for next time."
"During this lesson, the student and tutor continued to work on logic games, completing three games together during the lesson and discussing the student's progress on the games he has been completing on his own. During this lesson we did some timed game practice to get him focused on timed games. He continues to make improvement. Games focused on included grouping and linear combination."
"At our first meeting, I reviewed with the student, her experience with the test in order to establish strategies going forward. We then reviewed logic games. She is able to solve the games quickly and completely and shows a lot of potential with this section!"
"The student began by working through five logical reasoning questions and explaining her thought process to me as she did so. This enabled me to give her tips on efficiency and correct her thought processes where necessary. We then did timing exercises with a logical reasoning section and a reading comprehension section. Upon completing that I was able to ascertain that she did not truly require any help in areas other than reading comprehension. I then talked with her about moving forward in the law school application process."
"In our first meeting, the student and I mostly talked about the basic structure of the college entrance exam and approaches to take towards studying. Her goal is to study 8-10 hours per week, including a full, timed practice exam every other week, in addition to the time we will spend together. The first couple of weeks will be about getting acquainted with the exam so that we can figure out the types of questions and the sections that he wants to practice the most. To that effect, her assignment before our next meeting is to read through the detailed instructions/explanations of each section of her prep book, as well as to finish one full practice exam."
"We focused specifically on the Analytical Reasoning (Logic Games) portion of the test. The student lacked a structured approach to each question (which hopefully has been improved); with practice the student should be able to master the material by the time he takes the test."
