Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I spent our time reviewing the basic strategy for reading comprehension and the strategy for each question type. We discussed the intricacies of each question type and ways for him to improve his accuracy. At the end of the session, we discussed logical reasoning questions in the same fashion."
"We reviewed logical reasoning specific questions--particularly noting the difference between necessary and sufficient assumptions, which will be reviewed more next session. In Reading Comprehension we reviewed mapping more complicated, difficult sections. In Logic Games, we did a sample review of questions the student got incorrect. The student should do more complex matching/distribution/hybrid before next session, and some dense RC."
"We went over test 65. I covered the usual themes: how to analyze the argument given, how to diagram, how to spot the conclusion and distinguish the functions of different sentences, and how to recognize parallels and test answer choices. The student is going to take one more practice test before the exam."
"We've covered enough of the simpler AR game types, so I'll be ramping up into harder games for now. I'll send the student five worksheets, which cover all of the types of games we've worked on so far. In addition, he should take one more prep test."
"First the student and I went over a few questions that he had difficulty with. I told him to pay attention to percentages and non-standard ways of defining a familiar term. We then went over reading comprehension passages. I told him to always look for causal connections in science passages and find the main point, the purpose, and the P.O.V. of every passage. Next session we will go over type 6 questions and continue with type 4 questions."
"Gave a general overview of the LSAT. Suggested some study materials and a study schedule (1-2 hours of isolated review 6/7 days a week). Walked through a logical reasoning section from PT 74. Student will attempt to take a diagnostic exam before our next meeting. Showed great skill despite lack of experience with the LSAT."
