This week’s podcast discusses personal tutoring as a form of LSAT preparation. Our guests are Jeff Thomas, Assistant Director of Pre-Law Programs for Kaplan Test Prep, and Ron Gore, attorney and LSAT tutor/instructor for PowerScore Test Preparation.
Jeff Thomas, Assistant Director of Pre-Law Programs for Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions, says the primary benefit of receiving tutoring for the LSAT is the personal, one-on-one interaction students have with their instructors. He also says that this type of preparation is great for the busy student because it allows them to meet with their tutor when their schedule allows, rather than being committed to a particular class schedule. However, although tutoring does have its benefits, Thomas cautions that students should look at the prices for different types LSAT preparation and making sure it is financially feasible for them before making a final decision on their choice of prep.
Ron Gore, attorney and LSAT tutor/instructor for PowerScore Test Preparation, suggests that students should first look at the LSAT and take a practice test in order to determine the best way to prepare for their real test date. He stresses that, only by taking a thorough look at the test are students able to determine what their strengths and weaknesses are, and what kind of preparation might be best for them. Gore advises that students take an active role in their LSAT preparation by knowing and being an advocate for their own particular learning style. Finally, Gore, like Thomas, stresses that students look at all their LSAT preparation options before making a final decision.
