Tutor - thoughts/recommendations (Pasadena, CA)
« on: October 07, 2008, 01:20:54 AM »
I canceled my October LSAT after about 6 weeks of prep as I didn't feel I was there with the LG section. My PT scores were only around 154 mostly due to the fact that I would just freeze completely doing the games. The LG Bible didn't seem to help much. Now I'm signed up for the December LSAT. 

I would appreciate it if you shared your experiences and/or thoughts on hiring a tutor. It would mostly be for the games, maybe a bit for LR.

Also, if any of you has a recommendation for a tutor in the Pasadena - Los Angeles area, please let me know.

Thank you.

Hate to inform you, but 6 weeks of prep do not prep you for the LSAT.
A tutor would simply be stealing your money at the moment, but you can get one if you desire and if you think it will make a difference.

I believe you misunderstood the OP.

Kate - you've got PM.

This is just ignorant.

I studied for six weeks and got into Harvard.

A competent tutor can do a lot in six weeks, and since we're more than 8 weeks from the Dec. exam, I'm not sure why you're talking about six weeks anyway.

Why make unhelpful blanket statements when you are a noob one year out of college, without an LSAT score of your own?

Robin Singh would probably be the best tutor in SoCal.  I have no idea if he still tutors privately, and it would be beaucoup bucks if he does, but if you have the money, it would probably be worth it.

Sounds like you need to slow down first, working through PT tests (and games sections) untimed until you master them.  Obviously, a basic prep book would be a good start, and then maybe the Powerscore bibles, especially the Games bible.

Robin Singh invented tutoring.  It is his copyrighted patented and trade secreted intellectual property and if you try to copy it he will sue.
