Session Summaries by PSAT Tutors

Goodyear, AZ PSAT tutoring
We discussed the format of the PSAT and explored the different subjects that are on the test. We talked about the different types of questions and about what kinds of criteria one can use to identify the best answer from a variety of options. I went through and carefully reviewed some materials about what to expect from the test. I also got to explore with her some of the reasoning behind why we use these tests to evaluate students and how they can be useful in helping students prepare for the SAT and a college education. We went through a number of pre-answered questions in each subject area to explain the rationale behind choosing answers. We carefully reviewed some elements of sentence structure and English composition as a prelude to future sessions. I introduced her to some of the features of the website, specifically the learning tools and the online platform. Additionally, we went through the PSAT math question of the day. As was indicated in the profile information she submitted, she has difficulty choosing among a set of answers. We discussed some strategies for working around that, and she seemed to not only be agreeing with those suggestions but expanding on those ideas as well. I have asked her to complete the diagnostic tests for PSAT Critical Reading, PSAT Math, and PSAT writing for tomorrow's session so we can focus on specific content areas and ways to help her improve her test-taking skills.

We worked through the reading section of the PSAT and SAT. He demonstrated mastery of this section. We went through about 90 problems in total, and I think he may have gotten 10 wrong in all.

Today we worked extensively on critical reading. I provided an online practice test section for her to take, so for 25 minutes I let her work through it as though it were a section of the actual PSAT. Afterwards, we spent a good amount of time going through every question and discussing the answers, either how she came to get the right answer or why her answer was not quite the right selection. She is definitely improving in her recognition of the different types of questions that the PSAT will throw at her and getting better at answering them. She still has some trouble with vocabulary based questions, so in our next session we will focus on that. She did not have any issues with finishing within the time constraints, so now it is a matter of focusing that time on strategies to make sure that she is reading and interpreting the text correctly. As to be expected, she does very well in texts that are straightforward and structured in a familiar way, but the more complex passages can get confusing. I want to continue to work with her on always working to translate whatever she is reading in her head to something she can understand so she is always checking in with what the main idea of the passage is. I understand that her school is doing some work with critical reading, so as long as she finds a few times to practice even just reading through passages for their main ideas and encountering new words I think she will do well.
