How can a tutor prepare you for the LSAT?
Students who are interested in going to law school will need to take the Law School Admission Test, or the LSAT. If you're preparing to apply to law school, you likely know that a good LSAT score is imperative to getting into the top programs. While applications to certain types of graduate programs only place slight emphasis on standardized test scores, like those of the GRE, LSAT scores are heavily weighted in law school applications. Thus, it is crucial to get every point you can on test day. These scores can make or break your entire application, which can be a stressful experience. It is important to do what you can to prepare for the LSAT while bringing down the stress levels you may be facing.
There are five sections on the exam, four of which are scored, and one is an unscored variable test section. The sections are Logical Reasoning, or Logic Games, Analytical Reasoning, and Reading Comprehension, and Writing. The sections vary in length. Logical Reasoning consists of 24 to 26 questions. These questions are designed to test how well you can identify the main points behind an argument, relate key details to the argument or defense, evaluate and analyze arguments, and give abstract concepts a sense of logic. Reading Comprehension will have 26 to 28 questions that refer to four passages of about 500 words each. The goal is to demonstrate that you can infer from a text, find main ideas and relevant information, and understand complicated text. Analytical Reasoning will have 25 questions. It focuses on assessing your understanding of decisions, outcomes, and concepts, as well as your ability to draw conclusions and apply logic to complicated situations. The Writing section requires you to respond to a prompt to demonstrate your ability to use written English to express an idea based on facts. The unscored section, which serves as a dummy section for future questions, may be any of the previous parts of the exam. You are given 35 minutes for each section of the test.

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
During our first two sessions, we spent a lot of time on argument structure. We worked on identifying conclusions, premises, and assumptions in arguments, as well as how to use these skills to answer necessary and sufficient assumption questions. We also spent some time working on a challenging linear logic game, which gave us an opportunity to discuss conditional reasoning."
