Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student completed the last two sections from his practice test. He obtained a 157, which is 7 points higher than his first practice test. We reviewed the incorrect answers from his second logical arguments section. We practiced simplifying arguments before answering questions. Next, we diagrammed two logic games and worked through the problems for one of them. He has greatly improved his ability to illustrate and complete games. For next time, he is going to try to complete sections from the next test."
"Today we worked on two more logic game sections from two exams. We went through all 8 games, with the student explaining how he came to his answers, and then me explaining how I came to mine. I share with him some tips for time management since that seems to be his biggest obstacle at this point."
"The student continues to improve on the Logical Reasoning sections of the LSAT and to do quite well on Logic Games. She is skipping the last few questions, if necessary, of each logic game in order to maximize the overall number of questions she can answer correctly in the section within a given time. We looked also at the distribution of questions by level of difficulty in the Logical Reasoning sections, noting the one or two difficult questions around #4 in each section. She continues to improve in LR, and we worked through Section 2 of the Prep Test - so far, after 20 minutes on that section, she answered 10 questions and got 7 correct. The student will continue to work through the Prep Tests, especially the Logical Reasoning sections of the next two."
"We focused mostly on logic games. I had the student walk me through her approach to one grouping game and one ordering game. We also looked at a reading comp passage and talked about active reading."
"The student and I covered math topics, including combinations and permutations, and I gave him corresponding practice questions."
"Today we went over concepts relating to quadratics, roots, exponents, absolute value, and inequalities. We looked at sample problems that the student had for homework as well as some new problems from the book. We looked at both problem solving and data sufficiency. We will look more at decimals, exponents, and fractions again."
