My name is Tara and I am an experienced private LSAT tutor. I scored 170 on my LSAT. I began tutoring after I graduated from law school and have helped many future law students increase their scores. I went to law school in New York in 2014 and have my J.D., so if you are considering attending law school in Canada or in the United States I can help you with the application process as well. I have almost all of the past LSAT prep tests that I can share with you to practice with as well as access to books on the LSAT.
I have also created tip sheets for how to tackle each type of question within each of the three main sections of the LSAT that we will go over together in our sessions. I created my tip sheets by going through multiple LSAT books and blogs and pulling only the most useful information from them on how to tackle questions as well as adding to it from my own experiences with LSAT questions.
I know many LSAT students struggle with the Logic Games section of the LSAT and I can help to break down each type of logic game to help you understand how to "map out" all of the questions for that section. Also, you will learn to spot the most and least limited variables, which will help you get through the logic game questions faster. You will know which answer choice to test first, which will save you valuable seconds or even minutes on the test.
We can also go through all of the different types of Logic Reasoning questions and I can help you understand how to tackle each type of question and spot the typical "wrong answer choices". Also, I will help you understand what to look for when you are reading the stimulus of each question, which can help you predict the right answer.
Furthermore, I can give you tips on how to get through the reading comprehension section faster and to help you learn what to read each passage for and how to create a roadmap.
Finally, we will quickly go through tips on how to master the writing portion of the LSAT. The writing portion is ungraded, but it does get sent along with your application. This section just tests your ability to develop an argument, which is basically what law school is all about. However, we would only need to spend a couple of minutes on this section.
Before our first session I will give you a diagnostic test to complete before our first session and then we can work through it together at our first meeting. This will allow me to create an individual study plan for you. Also, I will leave you with homework questions to do on your own after our meetings that you can work through on your own to strengthen the skills you will develop during our sessions together.
The key to the LSAT is practice. You need to be putting in time to practice the skills you will learn in our sessions. Also, if you ever have a quick question when you are going through practice questions on your own I will always be available to help you outside of our sessions.
I can give you a free consultation on skype or the phone about how we will proceed with your study plan. My hourly rate is:
$85/hr with Tara $50+/hr with one of the other tutors
