Marcello Coluccio’s LSAT prep-course exists to bridge the gap between preparatory materials and one-on-one instruction. The premier difference between our LSAT course at ACS and other preparatory resources like Khan Academy and Kaplan is personalization. In our class, instruction is tailored to an individual student’s thinking.
The focus is not on “common mistakes,” but on your mistakes.
Unlike many other tests, the LSAT is not a test on what you know, but on how you think. It is a test on objective logic and on your ability to identify assumptions, bridge gaps in reasoning, and create infallible logical scenarios “in a vacuum.” Unfortunately, many students make the mistake of taking generalized courses and are unable to identify their own, personal flaws in reasoning.
Our students do not make this mistake, and it shows in their test scores.
Unlike many other preparatory resources, we do not assume an ideal score in the mid-160’s. We are not here to simply “band-aid” your problems and teach you how to strategize by skipping the hard questions. We’re here to make the hard questions easy and get you your highest possible score.
Allow Marcello’s nine years of teaching experience and six years LSAT experience to turn you into a logical machine capable of:
· Efficiently reading and annotating Critical Reading passages with 90-100% retention.
· Evaluating all Logical Reasoning questions based on their assumptions, premises and conclusions.
· Creating efficient, easy-to-use diagrams for any Logic Game based on a philosophy of visualization.
· Writing essays that showcase your rhetorical and reasoning abilities at peak performance.
