"We reviewed the algebra concepts we went over last time to start. Then we did some math multiple choice and reading comprehension."

"The student and I continued to talk about strategy on the SAT and timing in particular. He has enrolled in an intensive test prep class. We talked about strategies for efficient use of his time. "

"We reviewed a very advanced set of questions concentrating on science passages and more difficult scrambled science paragraphs and more challenging math questions. Also, I continued my tutorial on algebra - graphs and equations of straight lines and slopes. The student is very advanced and her only areas of challenge are science reading passages and more challenging math practice questions."

"I had given the student a section of scrambled paragraphs for homework, which we went over first today. He identified first sentences perfectly every time, but mixed up a few paragraphs after that. We went through each one and identified clues to indicate the order more clearly. He seemed to understand very well and we moved on from there. Next, we worked on reading comprehension and practiced marking up the passages. This seemed to be very helpful for the student. Finally, we practiced some logical reasoning codes to keep this skill fresh. "

"Today we practiced for the English portion of the test. We started with scrambled paragraphs and identified key transition words and subject topics that connect sentences together. We honed this skill by completing and discussing about 10 questions. We then did reading comprehension. The student has some trouble staying concentrated with these passages, but is overcoming this by summarizing each paragraph and consistently referring back to the text as reminders."

"The student warmed up with her times tables app. This seems to be one of the best ways for her to wake up her brain and get her engaged before starting our work. She remarked today that she thinks her 9's are getting better.
The study book only has so many questions for her to practice on each topic, which is unfortunate when we really need to spend lots of time with a topic to master it. Before our meeting, I prepared a sheet of questions that covered solving equations for x. It increased in difficulty from single-step equations to multi-step equations, and from positive numbers to lots of negatives and positive intermixed. She was noticeably quicker in solving these problems.
I had also prepared a sheet of about 7 word problem questions that required her to set up algebraic equations to solve. Once we switched over to doing these word problems, she had trouble. She really gets confused with the vocabulary and how it translates into the mathematics. We had to go through these more slowly, and verbally digest why the product of a number and six is twenty-four is equal to 6x=24. The study book also highlights certain formats of word problems, and I included a couple of these problems as well. She has the most difficulty with the age formatted word problem. I talked through this with her before finding 3 more problems of this form in the study book. By the end it was making more sense to her, but I was still having to help prompt her for how to set things up.
I plan to have another round of word problem questions for her to practice tomorrow.
We finally discussed the last topic in the lesson chapter, distance and cost formulas. Distance = rate * time. Cost = number of items * cost per unit. She breezed through the sample problems the book provided, and some supplemental problems that I made up.
We had about 10 minutes remaining, so I briefly introduced the material in the next lesson chapter: exponents and roots."

"In this session, we continued on with selected problems for each of the three sections of the exam. The student is naturally good at math. The student remains focused throughout our sessions, so it is clear that he maintains a high level of interest in the material. As far as testing strategies are concerned, we worked on reviewing questions before the corresponding passage in the reading session, in order to avoid extraneous details. For extra practice, I recommended continuing on with the word list from school and with the online practice tests. Overall, I believe that the student is getting more comfortable with the layout of the exam and is thus progressing forward in his preparation. "

"The student and I focused on essay preparation. We overviewed what the essay would look like, how it is graded, how many points they are scored on, as well as some sample essays. The student and I created some notes on the main points. I had him write an introduction and we went over it together. After, I gave him a timed essay (30 minutes). After, we revised and I gave him another prompt to work on for homework. We continued to add vocabulary to our list. We will meet again on Friday and continue forward with the essay portion."

"We began working on multiplying and dividing signed numbers. She was able to do these problems with ease. We also worked on scientific notation, powers and roots. I also taught her to do powers and roots on her calculator and signed multiplication and division. We will briefly review scientific notation to check understanding and then move onto order of operations next session. "

"We finished reviewing respiration and we covered Mitosis and Meiosis. The student deeply understands the topics and gets all of the practice questions right, but there are some details that are not covered in school, which we will go over! She needs to go over chapters 1, 2 and 3 in her book so that she makes sure she has covered all of the material! "

"The student had completed several entire SAT practice tests since the last time we met. He stated that he had completed two in one day (and that in the future, understandably enough, would probably not want to do that again). He seemed a little discouraged because he scored a 680 on the CR section from the first test, but he did score a 750 on the next one. This was a little surprising since he had been very consistent with his scores over the past month, but the variation may be due to the fact that he had taken two tests in one day. He had also made some errors in grading and accidentally writing down the wrong answer (when he actually meant to choose another answer), so this may have affected his score as well. During our session, we reviewed the wrong answers for the two exams and worked through the passage-based questions for another section together. When looking at the correct answers, he was usually quick to see where he went wrong, although there were a few questions that required some more detailed explanations. For example, he had a little difficulty understanding the nuances of a piece of dialogue from a 19th century story. For the most part, he has a strong vocabulary, but he can sometimes struggle with the specific connotations and nuances of words or phrases. He stated that sometimes he has trouble with questions that ask about a specific paragraph (for example, asking about the primary intention) or questions that ask about a specific meaning of a word in a passage, so I plan on trying to find reading passages online and those associated questions."

"I administered the assessment test battery to determine where the student would need the most help. His math skills are a little bit weak for his grade level and he seemed to struggle with fraction, decimals, percentages and some of the algebra. I recommended study book for him to work on in addition to his current book, and his mother said she would get a copy for him to take back to school with him and work on during the week."
