Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed a difficult logic games section together outlining strategies to figure out deductions. I then walked through some reading comprehension passages with him in a detailed fashion to illustrate a method to improve accuracy and efficiency."
"The student worked through an entire prep test under time constraints. I provided written feedback to the answers he got wrong. He managed to get 86 questions right. His LSAT score was a 167. So there were not many answers for me to provide feedback on. I was able to tell him before he started his last section that he already had his previous LSAT score of 154 without even completing the fourth section."
"Reviewed student's work since last session, looking at how to use the new book that she had purchased. Talked about how to study for test in last week and what she should look out for. Went over a couple of different games that she had not seen before."
"The student graduated from college with a degree in politics this May and has been working as a paralegal with a securities litigation firm since then. She plans to take the December test and is just getting started with preparation. I asked her to take one practice test before our session and, while she didn't score it yet, it looks like her score would be a bit above average in reading and reasoning. However, she only finished the first eight questions in logic games. I introduced her to my approach to the test in general, then to my basic approaches to each section. We worked through several logic games questions together and a few questions each from the other sections. She catches on quickly."
"We reviewed LR argument structure questions, RC general questions (especially inferences), and paired LR/match questions. I also provided the student with many particularly difficult LG to prepare her for the possibility of a hard test. We will review incrementally and meet mid-week next week."
"The student and I started by reviewing his assignment from our last session. After this, we proceeded to a discussion about mismatched concept questions from the assumption family on the LR section of the LSAT. We did a complete review, including how to identify these questions, how to approach them, specific variations of the questions, and finally how to incorporate formal logic into our approach to answering them. He was having a difficult time with this material at first, but he did an excellent job of sticking with it and ended up feeling a lot more confident by the end of our session. I was extremely pleased with our progress today. Our entire session was a win."
