Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on logical reasoning for the first part of the session and then switched to games. We also went over strategies for both sections again. He is concerned that he will not remember/not be able to apply all of the strategies that we've discussed during the test, so we really focused on getting those down."
"We continued to work on the logical reasoning section of the LSAT. We went over logic fallacies and I had the student do some practice exercises involving formal logic. We also went over the practice problems I had assigned him at the end of the last session. I assigned him more logical reasoning practice problems (focusing on assumption and inference questions) for the next session."
"Worked on logic games and logical reasoning questions that student had finished at home. Went over different types of logical reasoning questions and how to approach them. Talked about strategies for timing."
"Reviewed performance on December exam, devised strategy for February exam, discussed doing three games vs. four games in LG, taking questions slower in LR to maximize accuracy given new lower score goals. Advised him to review fundamentals of logic games before going back to timed practice."
"When we started this lesson the student asked if we could jump right into grouping games. He was still doing his own work with the advanced linear games. This lesson was a lot of lecture-style teaching, because there is so much new information that goes along with grouping games. We talked about defined vs. undefined games and balanced vs. unbalanced games. Then we spent a lot of time reviewing all of the important implications of conditionals and learning what yields a double-not arrow, a double arrow, and a double-not arrow with negated variables. He followed all of this information well, so we moved on to working on some grouping game set-up drills to conclude the lesson."
"We covered 3 Verbal passages. The student is doing well remembering our previously-covered vocab. Almost all of the passages were difficult, but he did a great job on the essays."
