Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I completed our first session. We discussed the test and his progress so far. I began by teaching him basic logic games strategy through three practice problems. We went through each game in detail, with me illustrating how to arrive at the solution through sketches and deductions. I taught him about three different game types and encouraged him to practice on his own. At the end of the games, he left with a better understanding as to how to solve these question types."
"The student and I reviewed her extra practice from our last session: a grouping game from a prior LSAT. During this discussion, we also reviewed the LG method more broadly and "hacks" for different question types. Following this review, we went into a discussion of the Logical Reasoning section."
"The student and I reviewed her test and did some intensive work with Logic Games. She struggled initially with the specific wording of the rules, but she learned how to read them and the different types of questions on the LG section very quickly."
"The student and I reviewed the logic games she completed for homework, which were sequencing and loose sequencing. She is able to tackle these games, but she could benefit from more regular practice -- consistency will be key moving forward. She has a strong foundation and should build upon that with more self-paced work. Next time, we'll continue reviewing logic games and return back to logical reasoning review. I've advised her to take a full practice exam soon, and we can use that to assess what areas we should focus on moving forward."
"Today, we covered algebra in detail. The student is struggling a bit, so we will continue to cover it in our next session. We will also begin covering the reading and vocab sections during our next session."
"We began by going over a couple of practice essays the student had written. A structured approach to writing the issue essay was presented, and an example was tried. Generating ideas for the argument essay was also discussed. We finished with a brief review of inequalities, combinations and permutations, and percentages."
