Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
The students worked on the math and writing section in order to finish the second practice test in their books. They did very well in the writing section. We went over additional strategies to help them in the proofreading section. One student showed an improvement in her math performance today. I think introducing the student to pre-calc concepts has helped significantly with her approach to the problems. After I graded the completed second test, the girls had both improved in almost all areas.
Today the student and I went over two of the practice test sections in his book. He seems most confident on the math section, but I am a little worried about his timing, so I've begun giving him practice sessions that reflect about how much time he'll have per problem. I've also spoken with him about strategizing to manage his time better, especially considering the penalty for wrong guesses. We also worked on one of the critical reading sections. Next session, I'd like to work with him on some strategies for timing on the critical reading section--namely, reading for information and prioritizing questions.
During this session, we continued our comprehensive review of math topics, focusing on ratios, solving systems of equations, and geometry. The student is grasping the material but her pacing on practice sections is a little slow. At this point, understanding the concepts is more important than speed, but pacing will be something she'll want to work on when she takes the test again next year.
Today we began working on speed and pacing for the test. The student completed one timed math section and one timed reading section. Speed was a challenge; she ran out of time about half way through the math section, and about 4/5 of the way through the reading section. In upcoming sections, we will practice how she can decide which questions to skip and which questions to focus her attention (and time) on.
We started by talking about the student's goals for the PSAT and what she felt her strengths were. Then we talked about what she wanted to work on and started looking at reading sections of the test. We looked at some strategies we could use to improve her speed and finally planned some homework exercises so she could continue to improve as the test approaches.
We went over the student's answers to the three sections he completed (one Critical Reading, one Writing, and Essay). He did much better on the Critical Reading and Writing portions. We went over his Essay and I gave him tips on what the graders are looking for. I then had him work on a Math section which we went over. He is doing better at the beginning of the section (not making as many minor mistakes / reading errors), and we went over some of the algebra/geometry principles covered in the harder questions. I told him to complete the Essay and first 3 sections of the next practice test (#10) timed, so that we can go over it on Sunday.
Today we began with a review of some of the student's Algebra homework. I think we made great progress in breaking down a word problem into an algebraic equation and figuring out how all quantities relate to one another. We then spent time on PSAT sentence completion and reading comprehension. The student now analyzes sentence completions using several techniques and breaks down reading comprehension questions to eliminate wrong answers. I think her biggest challenge on the test will be time, but we will spend our time with tomorrow's session attempting to finalize techniques for prioritizing question-solving for speed on the test.
10.12. Reviewed and corrected sentence completion and critical reading homework; introduced improving paragraph question types; practiced improving paragraphs questions; analyzed common incorrect writing answer choices; reviewed and practiced reversed solving math problems; and discussed general test-taking strategies and time management.
Today was our last session before the PSAT. He did a full practice test and scored extremely well on the reading, and decently on the writing.
The student had worked on a practice test during the week, so we went over her test results together. We brushed up on her math skills, which have not been a major focus for us so far, and also continued work on the writing section. Finally, we discussed what she should focus on studying during the last week before the test, and strategies for the day of the PSAT.
During this session, the student and I started to go through the critical reading section of the PSAT. We focused our entire session on the sentence completion questions, and he did extremely well on all of the test questions towards the end. I assigned him to do a practice test sometime this week so we can gauge his progress and continue accordingly.
The student's critical reading skills have significantly improved over the past few weeks. Today, we worked mostly on boosting his vocabulary before the test. We used vocabulary from TV shows, which I think really helped him because the words became more relatable.
