The 160 guy would be an awful tutor. You're gonna be able to get ppl if ur really cheap but likely the cheap uncommitted type who'll start with a 130, and not really study. What's concening is you haven't even taken a test so you may read to some as a bit odd.
I have to disagree here. You believe that a tutor has always to score higher than his student to be effective. What do you say about the super-athletes who clearly run faster than their coaches?
I cannot yet determine if you are a flame/troll aiming to be one of the top ten jackwagon TLS posters of 2012 or if you are serious and should be given a dumb-a$$ award (I think you've already earned at least one of those).
The year is young so we have plenty of time to collect and weigh more evidence as it comes in before tallying it up and calculating the final jackwagon rankings. It looks like you have a good chance of making the top ten list.
For now I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, assume you are serious and comment from that perspective.
Your analogy sucks.
Professional/good coaches know the rules of the game they are coaching, have experience with it, have studied playbooks and such in written, video, and other forms and have actually played the game before becoming a coach. That's how they know what they are doing and got the job.
Have you gotten around to looking at an LSAT PrepTest yet or at least a few authentic questions or are you still just sitting around thinking about it in abstract form?
If not, here is a link to one that is free to download from LSAC and print out:http://www.lsac.org/JD/pdfs/SamplePTJune.pdf
Have fun with it if you are serious about your stated goal. FYI, some people in this neck of the woods have actually taken two full five section tests under strict test conditions on the same day!
Please report back after you have cracked a test book open and worked at least one section of each type. No hurry though, take all the time you want. The world isn't predicted to end until sometime in March of this year so it may not matter what you do.
