Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I covered the LSAT LR section. We went over his mistakes on the LR sections he tried out since our last session. He seems to have been a bit confused during his practice between sections, so we reiterated the importance of concentrating on diagramming, especially when it comes to parallel reasoning and assumption questions. He will continue practicing diagramming LR questions in a timed environment."
"We did a whole section of inference questions. He did extremely well today. He is identifying the "trigger" language and eliminating responses quickly."
"In today's lesson, we focused on a variety of high-difficulty grouping-type logic games. The student had completed three games during the week, so we started the session by quickly analyzing each of these. He compared his own strategy to the online tutorial videos and we zeroed in on a few areas where he could work more efficiently and with greater accuracy. We finished the lesson with an in-depth analysis of two very difficult games, the "dinosaurs" game and "stained glass" game. We discussed pros and cons of a variety of setup methods, how to strategically prioritize answer choice options, conditional reasoning elements, and ways to eliminate guesswork and improve response accuracy."
"Once we got going we reviewed how to approach weakening questions and other similar question types for logical reasoning. We also reviewed advanced linear game and grouping game strategies, to prepare for combo game work for next time."
"Two students were present tonight. We covered Logical Reasoning and went over logic concepts and practice problems. We got through about 15 practice questions with a detailed look at logical deductions, inferences, evidence, and conclusions. Standing instructions to continue to practice at home under timed conditions."
"We spent some of our time on Logic Games and then a portion on two types of Logical Reasoning questions--parallel reasoning and resolving paradoxes. I believe the student has made real progress on Logic Games and now needs to turn to developing a strategy for approaching Logical Reasoning questions. The student's attitude is, as always, positive--she is dedicated to improvement. We agreed that she would practice Logical Reasoning questions, perhaps with an eye to unpacking the assumptions that underlie arguments and upon which they depend."
