Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we purely covered reading comprehension and took one passage from a practice test the student had done, as a way to go over the various techniques and methods of attack one should use in dealing with reading comprehension on the LSAT. Most importantly, for now, I emphasized how the student should focus on correctness and correct form over speed."
"We utilized the student's review materials to go over reading comprehension problems as well as logical problem solving. I demonstrated outlining of passages, inferring from context, and use of paraphrasing to anticipate answers. I demonstrated setting up problems with limitations presented and how to focus on limiting factors relevant to question to narrow down possible correct answers to test if they fit possible arrangements."
"For parallel reasoning, the student should diagram the prompt in as general terms as possible and then see which answer choice best matches the diagram. Avoid answer choices that add an extra element. For prompts where there are two people arguing, the student should be sure to figure out the perspective of each answer choice. I suggested making flash cards with no more than four notes per question type and trying to condense all the student's logical reasoning notes onto a single page. My other suggestion is reading and condensing the notes the student has taken so that the student can access the information more quickly."
