Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This session the student and I switched gears a bit and worked on some logic games. We started by reviewing logical reasoning sections she had done on her own. She is now practicing taking them and giving herself 1.5 minutes for each questions. This time she missed six, which is more than usual for her, but we assumed it was the new challenging technique. I then timed her on some logic games that were difficult to set up. She did well, but we talked through some missed inferences and possibilities for better diagramming."
"The student and I continued working through two new question areas in the Logical Reasoning and discussed our timeline to best prepare her for the LSAT in just two months. We noted that Flaw-type questions can be a challenge, so we will definitely be coming back to review those in the future. We also worked through logic games, which she is working through more accurately and quickly."
"We went over questions the student had on the practice test she finished this morning. To this end, we reviewed the importance of reading quickly, yet also carefully in order to fully understand the question before answering. Her scores are consistently improving, so as this happens, we will be able to narrow down question types she finds more challenging. We discussed several test-taking strategies, such as bringing highlighters or colored pens into the exam to help avoid missing key words like "not" or "most" or "all." For next week, she is going to go through the third chapter of her Logic Games book on linear games, as well as take a timed section of each part of the exam."
"The student asked me to help her with her personal statement for law school admissions. I proofread it and we discussed strategy. We re-worked it together, aiming for a more personal, less general tone."
"This was my final session with the student. During this session, we reviewed reading comprehension and overall test strategies. He has been a pleasure to work with, and I wish him great success on his exam!"
"Tonight was my first meeting with this student. Primarily we worked on Logical Reasoning: the basic definitions of argument, conclusion, evidence, and assumption, and how the test maker tests those concepts. We worked through a flaw and an assumption question."
