Session Summaries by SAT Writing and Language Tutors

Irvine, CA SAT Writing and Language tutoring
We went over the student's two essays as well as a sample one I provided. We went over the importance of the relevance of examples and the detail of the analysis as well as some general grammatical rules. The student was as attentive and eager as before. I asked him to continue with the collection of essay prompts I left him from last week. The student seems to have incorporated quite well many of the tips I provided him with last week.

The student and I continued working on the writing portion of the SAT today. After discussing strengths and areas of improvement in her homework essay, we focused on body paragraphs. I presented a model for structuring them, emphasizing that body paragraphs need topic sentences just like essays need thesis statements. She did a few practice stand-alone body paragraphs to practice the structure and timing. We wrapped up with a full-length practice essay which demonstrated her continuing progress.

We went over the homework she had done and she showed significant improvement in the grammar questions, which was encouraging as this was one of her most challenging areas. After grading and discussing her practice homework, we did several more sections of SAT practice grammar questions together.

We covered the following topics in our session. 1. Essay The student's essay was really good and had very minimal errors. She had a good road map of the issues she was going to be discussing, and she also provided good examples to support her arguments. There was one issue with a long run-on sentence that was somewhat convoluted, and there was also an issue with her use of a preposition in a non-idiomatic way, but besides that her essay was very good. 2. Sentence-completion questions We went over some more sentence completion questions. She was around 50/50 in terms of getting these right. I am going to send her some of these to do before next time so that she can get some more practice. I think we will also do more vocabulary drills in the future. We also discussed, as we have in the past, how looking for contrasts can help one to identify appropriate pairs of words.

The student is showing improvement. She spent most of her time working on writing practice problems today, as well as spending some time on math. I was pleased to see that she got every subject-verb agreement question correct. Further practice should help her continue to improve.

The student and I discussed some more advanced concepts in the critical reading section today. We went over ways to analyze passages structurally, as the test often requires you to understand the role that certain parts of the passage play relative to the whole. Even when the questions do not require that knowledge specifically, it is still helpful for analyzing the passage. We also went over a couple tricks for the vocab section as well. Additionally, we discussed basic grammar and the general approach to the identifying sentence error section.
