"[COVERED]: We began with a math section, continuing to develop the student's word-problem-solving ability. We introduced a few more concepts (for which I again made full-color notes): Knowing that the even-numbered root of a number can be positive or negative, the idea that the sum of the angles of a triangle equals 180, and how to figure out the slope of a line. We moved on to begin to cover a verbal section, beginning with sentence completion problems. I explained to the student that the key method was to focus on vocab, creating a list of definitions, and studying with an online dictionary open during the entirety of her review. I also showed her how there is ALWAYS a clue to give a general idea of what the "blank" must be in the context provided by the rest of the sentence, especially conjunctions and parallel constructions (an SAT favorite). We closed with a few questions on a passage-reading section, at which point I introduced the question types that could be asked about, showing how the two question types could be wrong answer choices for each other (main idea vs. detail), and how wrong answers were often out of scope.
[PROGRESS/CHALLENGES]: The student showed considerable improvement in her math ability in this session. She is beginning to be able to see the relationships that are being described, and to choose variable assignments on her own most of the time. She still needed some guidance in terms of being asked questions to initiate her problem-solving, but these often coincided with her needing a first-time explanation of the tested concept, and she grew more comfortable after explanation. I encouraged the student to work on vocabulary to improve in the verbal section.
[EXTRA PRACTICE]: We scheduled our next session for Monday. The student will go through the verbal questions we did and write down vocab in a list or on flashcards for every word she didn't understand, both in the right and wrong answer choices."
