Would a private tutoring help me?
« on: May 09, 2005, 04:27:04 PM »
Hi, I'm currently scheduled to write my first LSAT this upcoming October.  I've been studying with the powerscore LR and LG Bible along with the several prep tests.  I'm planning to purchase the Master the LSAT book and then take the Full Powerscore sessions afterwards.

Would private tutoring with the Powerscore help me substantially if i'm struggline with the LSAT materials?
And if yes, would it be better to get tutoring before the powerscore sessions or after completing all the powerscore sessions?

P.S.  When i say "struggling" i really mean struggling!!

isn't private tutoring like a 1000 for 10 hours?  those 10 hours of focused tutoring might be better than the 80 hours of classroom experience. 

im thinking about doing the private tutoring route too.

Tutoring can be very effective, of course, if you have a good tutor. 

But it can get hellaciously expensive if you spend a lot of time coming to grips with the fundamentals while you are on the clock.

Now that there are finally some competent books on LSAT methodology, you should get ahold of the bibles, study them intently, and only then hire a tutor to help you with the toughest questions, and maybe some additional approaches.

Also, try and get a free test drive lesson to make certain that a) your tutor is competent and b) you are compatible, if you're going to be spending many hours together.  Somebody who is brilliant but high strung or has hygiene issues is not likely to work out.

you want to make a real-life bet on who gets a higher score, between you and me?

Well, considering you are 149 right now, I would not make that bet!!
