Today's session began with reviewing the SAT essay that the student had written just prior to the session start. Rather than simply mark it up, I instead opted to have him role play the part of an SAT essay grader, and grade it himself. I would then review his grading with him. My hope was that this exercise would help him write in a fashion highly adapted to standardized testing, primarily by prompting him to consider how a fatigued SAT essay grader (with 3 minutes time to devote to grading) would experience his essay. Overall, the exercise seemed to work well. We ended the session by doing some critical reading problems. He performed exceptionally well on the sentence completion questions, so I don't plan to focus on those anymore. He did however stumble on certain challenging passage based questions. I attribute his difficulties to his reading style. Fortunately, I feel abundantly capable of helping a gifted student like him learn how to detect the tone of a passage, and so we will work on this when we next meet.

Today the student and I reviewed SAT math questions. I noticed that she does need to review some content from Algebra 2, such as solutions of systems of equations and the quadratic formula. In addition, she will need to learn some Pre-Calc topics such as the unit circle and trig ratios before she goes over them in school next year to best prepare for the SAT this fall. I will make sure she is able to easily grasp these new concepts by first assigning some math videos to review for homework. We will then review the concepts in person and go over the solution strategies to practice math problems based on these concepts.
