Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked through an entire reading comprehension section for practice. We then practiced some logic games, where he is making some progress on the methods."
"We again focused on analytical reasoning questions, and started discussing methods for distinguishing question types. She has continued to do practice questions and shows an improved understanding of basic techniques. She has some questions determining question type, so I advised that she focus on mastering more general techniques now and worry about refining those techniques for certain question types later on. She will take another practice exam this week and review her mistakes before our next session."
"The student and I worked on reading comprehension for a large portion of the session and then we went on to the writing sample. His ideas about what the style and structure of the writing should be were somewhat flawed, so we discussed some better ways to write the essay in order for it to have to the most impact."
"The student and I went through a number of Logic Games together. He has made good progress already, but remains overly anxious about the exam. He considers his recent score of 165 to be below average, even though that's extremely high for someone who is just beginning a course on the exam. The student is quite good at Logical Reasoning, but he struggles with finishing Logic Games on time. However, after working through several together, I noticed his speed considerably improved just within that short amount of time. I think he will be able to reach his target by September."
"The student and I worked on the Analytical and Logical Reasoning parts of the LSAT. I think it went well for a first session. He needs to work on answering the questions faster and recognizing the correct strategies to use, but these are very difficult for everyone and I think he is on track to do well on the test."
"I focused on conditionals, the order of inference on logic games, and the best way to annotate reading comp. passages. The student is getting more fluent at logic games. Conditionals are sometimes a challenge, but the student doesn't require too much guidance on those either."
