Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I first discussed a practice test she took. She scored 55 on the test, which is very close to where she wants to be. We then completed a practice reading comprehension passage. She chose the best three passages to work from on the test day. She scored fairly well on the passages we completed, and we went over the questions she missed in detail. We believe we have a good strategy to maximize her score on test day on this section using the methods we discussed."
"The student did a section of logic games and watched the video explanations, so we picked up with a discussion of those. We broke each game down into its component parts, discussed sketching techniques, and how best to navigate the game question to question. We also discussed formal logic, particularly unless statements and how to diagram them. She's going to plunge on in her lesson book this week before we meet again."
"The student did extremely well on LSAT Logical Reasoning today; she got a -1 on the whole section in a timed environment. She will do a full practice test before next session. We continued work on complex and irregular logic games, with a focus on improving efficiency and timing."
"The student earned an average score on the last LSAT pretest. The good news is that the lion's share of those missed points came from logic games, which is the most "improvable" section on the test. We'll focus on diagramming different game types moving forward and revisit LR and RC after we get more comfortable with the games. He shouldn't fret about another low AR score on the next preptest, as there are still plenty of games we haven't covered yet which have unique approaches. We will work on diagramming and time management as paramount concerns. Great session!"
"Yesterday we worked through some of your questions on fractions, decimals, and percents. You seem to be making good progress working through you GRE math books, so nice job. We also talked about how to approach and practice the writing section, and suggestions for tracking mistakes on reading comprehension questions. I'll see you in 2 weeks!
"Yesterday's session was really informative. It seems that the student's only conceptual weaknesses in quant are algebra and probability; with a little algebra seasoning, she could easily get 17-18 math questions out of 20 per section."
