Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

The student and I went through the directions for each section and talked a lot with her mom about how to check over her answers and not feel pressured on the test. Now that she has taken it, it seems like we will need to have a different approach in explaining how to go through it.

Today, the student and I added on vocabulary words from e to g (ending with graceful). We then reviewed area of triangles. We covered essay strategy, and I will be assigning an essay prompt for her to complete for Wednesday. Lastly, we went over homework and reviewed the problems she missed. I will be assigning her vocabulary, an essay, and extra math problems for homework. No concerns.

We worked on an essay practice and then he did some reading comprehension questions. For reading comprehension, he did well also.

I covered adding/subtracting decimals, adding/subtracting and multiplying/ dividing negative numbers, reducing fractions and converting fractions to decimals and back again with the student. I also went over Practice Exam Drill 1 and Easy Analogy Practice Exam Drill 2. I left him some notes on fraction as homework to cover next week.

Today the student and I worked through a diagnostic test for the Math section of the assessment lower level test. We spent the second half of the session going back over certain problems. She will practice with these concepts before our next sessions, and I gave this list to her parents.

We began with math using the test prep book. We looked at a list of math terms/definitions that the test expects you to know. The student circled the words he was unsure of and we discussed them. The test uses words like integer, consecutive, quotient, sum, and product in its questions without defining them. I made a chart for him of the four operations and words associated with them. He can add to this chart as he comes upon more terms. Reading: we read three passages. He did well on one passage from the practice test. We will continue to work on these. We ended with some analogies; he is making great progress on these. Homework: 1) continue learning multiplication table, 2) continue learning vocab words.

The student completed a practice verbal reasoning test and a practice reading test. She scored well on both. She got 15/20 problems correct on the verbal reasoning test, and she got 10/12 problems correct on the reading test. She reported she was anxious about her test. We talked about different ways to manage test anxiety, and we practiced staying calm during timed tests. She was able to retake the verbal reasoning portion of the test with a perfect score. She should study the 6 equations we have been practicing before tomorrow. She is quick to learn new material, and she does very well when she is calm and focused.

In this session, we tackled the verbal section of the SSAT. I brought my own book, and we tackled the synonyms section of the SSAT. I assigned him a few questions, and we went over each one. We discussed the words, the meanings, the synonyms, and made sentences. We plan on tackling the math section in the next session.

We talked math testing strategies while going over the following content: converting between fractions/decimals/percents, ratios, combining like terms, hands on equations, and solving equations on paper.

For math, we reviewed order of operations by evaluating expressions with 5+ operations. We also covered factors, common factors, and greatest common factors. For verbal, we formatted a plan of attack for analogies: identify the relationship type, make a sentence bridge, and apply it to each of the five word pairs.

The student and I started off by doing a review of geometry concepts. We went over perimeter and area of different shapes as well as total degree measures. I taught her about special right triangles and reviewed the Pythagorean Theorem with her. After doing some practice assessment math problems, we went over reading strategy and practiced with two single short passages.

Today the student and I met for the first time. We reviewed the scores for his practice test and identified areas where we thought we could work to make the most improvement and help his overall score. He and I are going to place a strong emphasis on algebra and working with word problems. For next time he is going to work on studying vocabulary words for the verbal section.
