Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on a practice logical reasoning section. He scored 15/25. I told him to focus on picking outside the scope of answers to eliminate answer choices. We then practiced two games focusing on how to make deductions."
"I graded a timed test the student had taken and the results were, as expected, very good. His essay, after our discussions last week about what not to do, was also vastly improved. It is clear that his strongest section of the test is logic games. We will work on his test taking stamina and his ability to stay focused for the entirety of the test."
"The student and I had a very productive lesson today. We first went over Reading Comprehension, doing an entire passage together. I showed him several of my methods for reading and processing information in a time-efficient manner. Afterwards, we spent the rest of the session doing Logic Games. We would set a timer and each do the game individually. Then, we would review. He is clearly improving at LG. He solves the easy games almost as fast as I do. Even on the harder games, he's gotten to the point where he can get all the questions correct. It's now just a matter of learning to do so in less time."
"The student and I worked on the Analytical and Logical Reasoning parts of the LSAT. I think it went well for a first session. He needs to work on answering the questions faster and recognizing the correct strategies to use, but these are very difficult for everyone and I think he is on track to do well on the test."
"The student and I discussed his law school aspirations, we talked about his LSAT goals and the reality of achieving the score he wants. We then worked through a logic games sections, I corrected him where necessary. We spent the rest of the session working through logical reasoning questions. We are set to meet up again this evening. Our regular schedule will be established at tonight's session."
"The student and I started our session by reviewing the assessment he had completed for extra practice. We then turned our attention back to a more LSAT-focused discussion on Main Point questions, diagramming for Logical Reasoning, and finally Assumption family questions. After a brief overview of the major types of assumption family questions and the strategies used to answer them, he started to do very well with the material. For extra practice, he will be completing a set of practice problems on assumption questions using his LSAT study software. I think our biggest win from today was his epiphany regarding including contrapositives in his formal logic translations from logical reasoning questions."
