Session Summaries by PSAT Tutors

Hollywood, FL PSAT tutoring
The student and I began by getting acquainted and confirming what the focus of our sessions will be. She believes that her critical reading skills have improved based on her work this spring in that area and her subsequent scores on PSAT practice tests. Consequently, she wants us to concentrate on her writing, both for more immediate purposes (when she takes the PSAT again this fall) and for longer range goals (when she takes the SAT now planned for March). She identified her weaker writing skills as grammar and essay development, so, for the time being, I will have her pursue exercises, practice tests, and assignments limited to these areas. We also determined how we would interact vis-a-vis the sessions: we will meet in person at her home on an irregular basis that accommodates her travel schedule this summer, and she will email me essays in between that I will correct in advance of our in-person sessions and review with her when we get together. We proceeded and agreed to the homework she will do between now and 6/29, our next session: an essay whose prompt she selected from several I supplied and exercises in the SAT book, as she is enrolled in a special prep class from her school which requires these exercises be done on a self-guided basis. Using these is dual-purposed--it addresses our tutoring goals and allows her to proceed on her summer school work. The latter, she will correct, flagging only the missed items for us to review together in session. I then gave her a proofreading/editing exercise. She did fairly well on it, missing only a few errors. We established rapport and had a good start. She is a rather remarkable young person, clearly very bright, disciplined, and consistently hardworking. I look forward to working with her and to receiving her essay. It seems likely that she has much potential as a writer.

Because this was the student's first session, we began by discussing her goals and areas of focus for the PSAT. She let me know that she would like to achieve a high enough score to allow her to pursue a National Merit Scholarship. Of the various test sections, she expressed the most concern about the writing skills section, particularly the improving sentences and identifying sentence errors question types. After reviewing the structure of the section, we talked about some of the most commonly tested grammatical, punctuation, and vocabulary usage errors. We worked through practice questions, focusing both on the particular errors tested and on ways to quickly establish whether questions contained any error at all -- and what error to anticipate if so. For improving sentences questions, we practiced evaluating answer choices to make sure they not only fixed the original error in a sentence but did so without introducing new mistakes. She is a bright and engaging student who picks up on elements and patterns of language use quickly. It was a joy to see her comfort with the writing skills section increase as she began to feel more confident in her ability to spot and correct mistakes.

The student and I worked mostly on the math section of a PSAT, which he recently received back. Most of the time was spent on math, especially geometry and exponents.

The student and I went over grammar rules, especially the use of prepositional phrases and the use of too vs to. We spent the rest of the evening on math problems, which were a mixed bag. He's rusty on some of his algebra, like factoring equations, but he was also very quick with other tricky problems. This will get easier with practice, so we will go over plenty more of them next week.

The student and I went over her homework- a reading passage and an English passage. She did well on both. We then did our first full 52-question reading passage. She did very well on this, but still needs to speed up her timing. This will gradually happen as she does more timed passages and continues applying our strategies. Prior to now, she has been learning the strategies untimed, and from this point forward, all of her reading practice will be timed. Next week, we will spend the entire session finishing up the English section. After that, we will spend 1-2 sessions on the math portion of the exam. We will go over test-taking strategies specific to the math section and create a cheat sheet list of math formulas to memorize.
