Initial meeting. We reviewed several handouts on writing and math. I explained the value of using the OED Online for vocabulary and writing. We went over several math concepts from the handouts. The student and I worked through several questions from the Practice Test 1, doing a few questions from each section. The student will continue working on the practice test for our next session on Saturday; I provided her with guidance on how to manage time on the essay portion, and how to use proofreader's marks.

The student and I spent an hour going over the verbal section of her diagnostic test. I taught her a strategy for approaching the synonym and analogy questions, and we went through the questions she had omitted or answered incorrectly, building bridges for the analogy questions and using elimination to answer the synonym questions. We then went through a list of root words I had sent her, creating memorable, relatable examples for 10 of the root words.

We spent this session working on vocabulary; specifically we worked on learning key root words to help identify the meaning of unfamiliar vocab words. We also worked on breaking down complex words into parts to better derive the meanings. The student did not struggle with anything in particular during this session. I did not leave any extra practice other than to look up definitions whenever she comes across words she doesn't know or recognize. I do not have any concerns from this session.

I discussed vocabulary, analogies, and passage reading with the student. He needs more practice on vocabulary, but should do just fine on the language arts/reading/vocabulary/analogy questions. We will have another session tomorrow, where we will go over a test.
