I hope I can get some insight from y'all about this.
I just started working for a tutoring company that does 1-on-1 tutoring for the LSAT (amongst other subjects and tests). After you're hired, the company provides few resources to tutors. I am going to start tutoring someone for the February LSAT who has just begun preparing. Their diagnostic was in the 140s and they want to score in the 160s by February.
I am currently working on a curriculum and gameplan for how to achieve this. We will be meeting 4-6 hours per week in 2 hour sessions, and the student will obviously be doing work outside of the sessions as well. Does anyone have any advice for how to develop the best curriculum possible to help out this student? I'm confident in my understanding of the concepts and have past tutoring experience, but this is a new experience since I have a set amount of time and really want to provide the best experience possible for this student. They already have the Powerscore Bibles and will be buying PTs soon.
Does anyone have links to structured curriculums/study plans that I could customize to meet my student's needs? I didn't have a formal, pre-planned gameplan but I want to provide my student with something somewhat fully-formed. I realize that as a new tutor, I need to go above and beyond to prove my competency, so any constructive advice or help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Since you did really well on the LSAT, I would first write out exactly what you did and then fix it up from there.
Yeah that's what I'm basically doing right now. My biggest concern is that my strategies might not work as much for someone who is starting in the 140s, since my diagnostic was like a 164 or so. However, my plan is to go have them go through each PS Bible (LG then LR then RC) and then assign questions for drilling (i had a list that categorized every LR and LG question/game by type that I found on TLS)
I guess my chief concern is that my strategies were pretty freeform, and I didn't have quite as stringent of a study plan as this student may need
