Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I continued to focus on the logic games section. We went through an entire section practicing questions. I discussed basic strategy with him, while also going over some of the finer points to help him shave off time and improve his accuracy. He is getting better at making deductions. I explained some ways to slow himself down and check his understanding during the initial stages of the game."
"The student and I spent today reviewing his most recent PT. We spent the bulk of our time on the RC section--his biggest challenge--but also managed to talk about advanced strategies for the LG section. We saved the LR section for our next session. For extra practice, he will be completing two RC passages, two Logic Games, and starting some new reading in his study guide. I continue to be pleased with his commitment to this process! He's doing a great job."
"The student and I used our session to work through some Logical Reasoning and reading questions. She did very well on the reading questions we worked on, though she had trouble with some types of Logical Reasoning questions. Inference and Assumption questions particularly troubled her. We worked on the organizational methods for these questions, and she understood and applied them very well, so I'm confident that with practice, she should be able to cover that weakness. I also gave her some inference questions and reading practice to do as homework for next time."
"The student and I went over his expectations and his prior experience with the LSAT. We reviewed conditional diagramming and sufficient and necessary conditions. He grasped the concepts, but more practice will be required."
"The student and I went over logic games grouping linear combination and started to review grouping partially defined. His homework is to take that preptest, along with a logic games worksheet I'll send."
"We focused on the sentence completion and equivalence this time. The student has started a list of vocabulary words to look up at a later time. He is good at identifying key words and phrases, as well as finding roots of unfamiliar words, so he is doing well in the former. His only pitfall is that he sometimes overthinks the questions and picks a choice that makes sense but lacks evidence. For math, we did extra practice on more difficult geometry questions. We also did some algebra word problems, which we will continue to work on next time."
