Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This session the student and I reviewed the work I gave her at the end of last session and then went through a series of linear games. She was able to complete the set-ups and answer the accompanying questions easily. When we went through the games together she quickly and efficiently diagrammed the rules and created effective set-ups. With very little direction she was able to pull out inferences by linking rules and seeing how rules interacted with and effected each other. We flew through all six games in the two hours we worked together. For next time we will approach advanced linear games and most likely move quickly on to grouping games since she is picking up on everything so quickly."
"The student and I reviewed his scores on the diagnostic test he took. He scored approximately a 153. We then went over some practice logic games questions and discussed strategy."
"Met the student, discussed background and goals, completed vocabulary exercises, worked on argument and logic problems."
"Logic Games: Two-action games. Reading Comp: Review of past work, improvement in roadmapping. Writing Sample: Discussion of format and approach."
"We reviewed logical reasoning questions. I had the student do several logic games in a row and then reviewed them. We also reviewed test-day procedures."
"As our last session, the student wanted to try a "process logic game" similar to one she had come across. I checked into these types of games, and they are not common on recent exams, but come from exams from the 90's, but we did one from that period. She did very well and should at least be fairly comfortable should it appear on the exam. We then went over more logical reasoning questions, focusing on "parallel reasoning" questions as much as we could. The student has been struggling with the some examples, so I suggested between now and the exam trying the easier questions to boost her confidence to see if that helps. We also tried to focus on some questions about spotting the purpose of the statement in the argument. Overall, the student has definitely improved at spotting the right answer, and just as importantly, understanding the wrong answers We spent time talking about making sure to walk into the exam well-rested and in the proper state of mind. As long as she does that and makes sure to read the questions very carefully, I think she will do well."
"Today we worked predominantly on logic games. This was our last session before their test. They seem prepared overall. Their timing is good and so is their accuracy. At this point, it will depend on the difficulty of the test and the curve."
"Final review before the big day! Went over general test-taking strategies and mentality, as well as some final timed practice on various question types."
"Today was my last session with this student. We went through overall strategies and steps for the logic games and arguments sections."
"Provided an overview of the LSAT sections, including time management advice. Administered a mini LSAT exam to highlight strengths and weaknesses."
"The student and I went to a bookstore and talked about test prep books for a while and then afterwards we worked at a coffee shop. We worked on order logic problems. "John is younger than Bob," etc... She is getting faster at them, but she needs to sit down with a test prep book and work through some problems for a while to get a good feel for them."
