Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student is primarily concerned about improving her logical reasoning sections. We spent some of our time discussing a few general tips for the exam and distinctions between the sections. We spent the remainder of our time learning how to evaluate the logic of logical reasoning sections by simplifying the concepts and terms discussed in passages. We are trying to develop an approach to logical reasoning that is similar to a sound approach to logic games. We practiced by simplifying and evaluating two of the student's incorrect answer choices from her past LSAT. We plan on practicing this approach with new questions when we meet in the future."
"Discussed the student's areas of need and reviewed scores and questions from most recent LSAT results. The student needs most help with logic games. I received the student's questions and scores so that we can both review them for our next session."
"Covered LSAT 29 and part of 30. She's doing really well on reading comprehension. Did well on logical reasoning too. We'll do the rest of 30 and 31 next time we meet."
"The student and I looked at specific types of logical reasoning questions. We spent most of our time strategizing how to break down the stimulus in a question and then looked at how that looks for different question types."
"We went over reading comp, logic games, and logical reasoning. For logical reasoning, we went over must be true and main point questions, and we continued working on linear games in the logic games section."
"Today was my first meeting with this student. He's very new to LSAT prep, so there was a lot of ground floor-level information we needed to discuss, including how prep tests work, the right prep materials to use, the general study schedule, etc. Before next lesson, he's going to be taking a prep test under timed conditions, then using the blind review method to review before looking at the answers. This should give us enough data on his strengths and weaknesses to make a more directed study plan."
