Session Summaries by Test Prep Tutors

Irvine, CA Test Prep tutoring
Over the weekend, I had the student complete a full length practice test (timed, 2.5 hours). During our session, I graded the test and we went over her answers. She did a phenomenal job on the verbal section, showing great improvement from her last practice test. Math, however, more difficult and she made some minor arithmetic mistakes. We'll focus on math testing in our remaining hours before the test.

The student took one entire practice exam over the weekend. He was particularly interested in reviewing the math section because he felt that he could have done a lot better in that section. We went over the problems he missed and tried to find a pattern among the types of questions. We also went over exponents and trigonometry rules. He feels confident that he can improve in the math section because he knows the material. We will focus on reading and science next week.

Today we focused exclusively on reading passages and answering questions about those passages. The student is learning how to identify the correct answers to the multiple-choice questions, using justifications from the text. We wrote down vocabulary in the text that was challenging, which she has been assigned to review.

The student and I went over the general structure of the test, including approaches and test taking strategies. We then looked specifically at the reading section. We went over the best approach when taking into account time and lengthy passages. More specifically, we looked at key words and the types of questions asked. Lastly, I discussed with her the importance of prefixes for the verbal section of the test. She plans to start making note cards for the prefixes to study over the next couple weeks.

The student sat for his first full exam on Saturday and seemed pretty satisfied with his performance overall. He reported feeling very little anxiety during the test itself which is a big improvement. He did report that he didn't think he did his best on the reading comprehension section as it had two entire poems to be analyzed, which is a much greater emphasis on poetry than is typical for the exam. We talked about how to approach this strategically if it happens again (namely, skip the poetry, do the prose sections, and then come back to the poetry if there's time) and then we analyzed a number of sample poems. I gave him more vocabulary homework as an assignment and will bring him more poetry samples to practice analyzing in our next session. We also did a small amount of math practice.

We went over a consultation on a college application that had previously been submitted. We also completed an application for a school that the student was accepted to and spent time talking with the parents and student on strategies for success.
