Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed a practice test that she took and diagrammed the logic games from the LG section of that test. We discussed the schedule of the LSAT test day and the testing center."
"Today we worked on reviewing some reading comprehension and logical reasoning sections that the student had completed. We specifically focused on changing the way that she approaches and thinks about each problem set. In particular, I encouraged her to think in more abstract terms on her first read through for reading comprehension, rather than trying to focus in on all of the details."
"We covered linear logic games. We went into division and stacking linear games as well as other types of evolved linear games. One thing we focused on was how to set up the problems so as to facilitate the logic game. The student became very quick at setting up the games. However, we need to focus on finding more contrapositives and inferences in the future. We also are going to go into "if, then" problems in the future. She is going to take a practice test this week before we meet again Friday so we can see how she does with timing."
"We discussed thesis and antithesis passages and some secondary structure. We have a good plan for how to proceed with our next session with synthesis passages and more secondary structures. I will send the student more passages to dive into for next time!"
"This session covered all three phases of the exam. The three main types of RC passages were tackled. Several logic games were also covered. Finally, a variety of LR questions were handled."
"Very strong preptest with a 166! The most challenging section remains RC at -7. As there's no substitute for drilling for this section - more drilling is needed. I still recommend memory method at this point, with a switch to "test mode" drills in another week or so. We studied an offshoot of grouping logic games (defined unbalanced) and some more LR question types. I'll send along another preptest for an evaluation before the next session - will again schedule through email. Great job!"
