Session Summaries by SAT Math Tutors

Georgetown, TX SAT Math tutoring
In today's session we worked through math and reading. The student has improved a lot in the passage-based questions of the reading section. She struggles sometimes with the more difficult inference questions, We worked on understanding the main argument and viewpoint of the author to help answer these types of questions. I assigned her to continue working through SAT vocab words. In math, she is doing well in knowing how to answer the first half of the questions in the section. She struggles more with word problems. We have been focusing a lot on helping her focus on important information in the problem and ignoring extraneous details. These are all things that she can easily fix by just being a little more careful in reading answer choices and questions and we are working to help her be more careful.

We spent the first hour on grammar, and the second on critical reading. With grammar, we focused on Identifying sentence errors, reviewing over possible errors.0 The following concepts are those to which we dedicated the most time: -Pronoun case (singular/plural, subject/object), especially with comparison: for example, "I am better at running than SHE [is at running]." -Pronoun shift, especially between "one" and "you" -Pronoun ambiguity -- a tough one, since this grammatical error is fairly unique to the SAT! -Subject/verb agreement with subjects that use either/or, neither/nor, both/and, etc. -Verbs with irregular past/past participle forms We spent some time working on inference questions for critical reading, as well. For the most part, the student is performing really well -- she just needs some extra practice with inference!

During this session we continued our overview of the entire test from last session, using the student's new review textbook to administer some practice drills. He is doing great on the writing section and generally well on reading, although he is still getting familiar with the way the questions and best-fitting answer choices tend to be worded. We reviewed some basics of math that he hasn't had to use in a while, such as applying the distributive property to algebraic equations and simplifying ratios. We also delved into the structure and some typical prompts of the essay, which is a subject we may return to at next Tuesday's session.

The student tried adding "note taking"ù to the other skills we had reviewed in the reading section. After we discussed the meaning of the reading, she was able to answer both questions on her own. The reading on pages 476-477 was easier for her than other sections have been. She got 8 of the 12 questions correct. We discussed what the passage meant, and looked at each of the questions to see what had confused her. After reviewing the reading, we moved on to the math section I had assigned as homework. On pages 416-421, she answered 7 out of 18 questions correctly. She does not remember having been taught ratios previously. We discussed the best way to approach ratio problems today, and will likely need to review it again with other (similar) math problems in the future- as ratio problems appear in a variety of ways throughout the exam.

The student and I had our first session to go over the SAT math section. He has taken precalculus, so he was comfortable with the overall material covered in the SAT math sections, but wanted to focus on geometry in particular. I drilled him for awhile and found his biggest issues have to do with brain fatigue and time. Given ample time, he can usually figure out the answer, but once I began timing him, he would too quickly give up on doable questions. We talked through about 40 problems together, doing some of them out loud, and the student doing some on his own. Big picture, I focused on listing subjects where his comprehension is an issue versus places where he needed to work on test taking skills. I emphasized the usefulness of always using lots of scratch paper and writing everything out, and emphasized when to use a calculator and when not to.

The student and I worked on PSAT sample questions for 45 minutes, and then we spent 30 minutes on the verbal and writing questions. She only missed one of the verbal questions. She is performing better on the PSAT verbal questions than she was on the SAT ones, and in our remaining sessions, we will be devoting more of the time to the math, since she needs more assistance in that area. She was able to complete most of the sample math questions correctly; however, she is taking on average two to three minutes. On the actual test, she will have closer to one minute. We are timing her on each question and working on her efficiency in problem solving.
