Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I met for our first session. I first asked about her LSAT experience so far, and what kinds of strategies she has been using. She expressed a desire to work on logical reasoning so we started with that section. I went over some basic strategy for this section, and then we began going through a number of practice questions. She finished ahead of pace so we discussed ways she could use her extra time to go back to the questions she was struggling with. We also went over all the questions she missed in a detailed fashion, and I explained how to arrive at the correct answer. Towards the end of the session we planned for future sessions."
"The student had taken a practice test in anticipation of today. He is demonstrating mastery of the material. We discussed several strategies for improvement over the long term between now and his test."
"The student has made great progress on the logic games - she mentioned that she did two practice sections this week and got everything right! She still struggles with some of the formal logic in the logical reasoning section, so I advised her to read through the LSAT book on this section, as it provides a very clear outline of how to approach the questions and what to look for. So she will do that this week, work on some practice questions and come back on Saturday with questions so that we can continue to review these difficulties. I think that the most important thing going forward is to learn the correct way to approach these questions. I want her to follow the advice of the prep book because it provides a methodical way of working through the problems and with a specific structure in place, the frustration of not knowing how to attack them becomes very helpful."
"The student has really progressed over the past months. She is getting faster and more efficient in completing games, and I'm excited to see how she does in September. She should practice as consistently as possible until the test date, and complete a few official tests beforehand."
"The student has some experience with LSAT tutoring and the approaches to the different sections. She doesn't have any particular weak spots that I could identify, but the first prep test might shed some light on problem question types. Without a specific weakness to work on, we will continue with AR and LR studying in that order, as those sections are the most "improvable." Her homework is one diagnostic preptest (#47) and some linear balanced logic games. She should return the preptest answers by Saturday. Good session!"
"The student has studied previously for the LSAT, so he already has a good foundation. We discussed strategies for meeting his target score, and then worked on simple and complex sequencing games."
