Session Summaries by SSAT Tutors

Chicago Ridge, IL SSAT tutoring
We covered a review of the SSAT by working online for the whole session today. They worked diligently on a diagnostic test. They were getting about 55%-60% correct on the tests. We have a lot of work to do on vocabulary. They have homework working on their blue book vocabulary list for next session. They also can work online on flashcards and practice tests.

We focused on reading comprehension. When she takes her time, she is very solid at this subject. We are focusing on skills that can help her speed up during the test while still maintaining her high scores.

First, we checked some math problems I assigned for homework and reviewed the vocabulary words I asked her to look up. Then we moved on to synonyms. Vocabulary seems to be a challenge so we will begin working on some roots and prefixes/suffixes. In the meantime, we keep track of any words she doesn't know throughout the practice problems and she defines them on her own. I've asked her to review vocabulary with her parents at home, but I will also devote some time to this.

On Tuesday, the student and I tackled the quantitative and mathematics sections of the SSAT and ISEE tests. First, we overviewed the contents and types of questions in each section, and then worked through the diagnostic questions. In general, math comes easily to her; she occasionally can't see the answer right away, but with a little prompting can figure it out quickly. We have yet to work on the comparative questions on the ISEE, and I think percentages (adding versus multiplying) can use some more review. At the end of the lesson, we read a short article I found on JK Rowling's new book and discussed reading habits, as we begin to strategize how to build her vocabulary.

The student and I worked on analogies and Math. I asked her to try to do a Reading Comprehension practice test on her own before we meet on Saturday.

I met with the student for the first time today. We discussed his previous experiences with the SSAT, his educational goals, what areas he felt he needed the most help in, and what learning styles/methods he finds most useful. We then covered basic SSAT test-taking skills, including pacing, guessing, when to skip questions, and how to use elimination to narrow down possible answers. We reviewed the diagnostic test he completed before the session and went over the questions he had difficulty with in detail.
