Session Summaries by Test Prep Tutors

Carson, CA Test Prep tutoring
During this session, I gave the student a passage to read and answer questions on. We reviewed the four step process we talked about last week (read, vocab, notes, questions) and the advice he had given himself: re-read questions and check over answers, look back at notes to help answer questions, and read the questions carefully the first time. We will have a new process: 1. Read questions 2. Read passage. 3/4. Highlight key ideas and vocab/define vocab 5. Answer questions. I think that being aware of the questions before he reads the passage will help him recognize that the answers are found directly in the passage. Highlighting ideas instead of taking notes will be more useful when he goes to answer the questions and will also be more effective. I will do a "think-aloud" model on Thursday so that he might really understand the strategy and we will practice the strategy on Thursday. I think it will prove effective for him.

Today we spent the majority of our time on math, reviewing homework and using that momentum to try new problems. We ended with some work on logical reasoning.

The student and I continued working on the math portion of the ACT today. We began by going over the practice test he completed as homework. I was very impressed with his performance. We went over the questions he answered incorrectly, and he was able to correctly answer 10 of these questions without substantive help from me. I explained to him that it is imperative he maintains a positive focus during the exam and gives each question an earnest attempt, making intelligent guesses when necessary. Also, it is important that he not be hard on himself when a question stumps him -- missing as many as 15 questions still would give him a phenomenal score. Overall, his confidence has improved drastically. For our next session, I asked him to make flashcards for some of the key formulas and rules that he will need to memorize before the exam. I also asked that he take another math practice exam. Monday will be the last session during which we focus on math. We will continue with the science portion next Thursday.

We reviewed process of elimination from last lesson, and then went into reading comprehension section techniques using the TPR cracking text. Reading comprehension is a major area of need for the student. We reviewed the overall technique and then worked several questions. We also discussed the vocabulary in context (VIC) technique. I think we need to go slowly here with a lot of practice to get him used to the techniques, but it will get easier and he will see improvement as he masters the various question types and approaches.

The student and I had an introductory meeting. We discussed her background, interests and programs. We discussed past troubles in school, as well as successes and her challenges for the current semester. In the next week she will review her notes in a relaxed setting, work on learning vocabulary, and prepare for and set up meetings with her professors. After this, we will meet again and make a plan going forward.

We worked on reading fluency and comprehension strategies that included problem, solution, sequencing, realism, and fantasy. We worked on fluency strategies and not pausing at end of lines when reading but instead at punctuation marks.
