Session Summaries by Test Prep Tutors

Lakewood, WA Test Prep tutoring
The student had completed one reading and one writing practice section since our last session, so we started by going over the wrong answers from those sets. I think his writing scores will improve with increased familiarity. He did perfectly on the paragraph improvement and well on the sentence improvement, but the sentence error identification caught him up a bit. On several problems he didn't want to choose "E" even when it was the correct answer, simply because he felt something had to be wrong. We will continue to work on these types of problems so he can familiarize himself with the tricks and gain confidence in his answer choices. I also see him picking up skills and incorporating them more naturally the more he practices. With the practice review (and the two additional sets we did) our main strategy focus was checking in while reading, answering the question at hand, and looking for evidence. As he gets more comfortable and confident, I expect that he'll continue to improve.

Because this was the student's first session, we started by discussing his particular priorities, strengths, and struggles with respect to both the SAT and ACT. He expressed that he feels fairly confident about the Math and multiple-choice Writing sections, but finds the Reading sections and the Essay difficult. With those priorities in mind, we turned our attention to the Critical Reading section of the SAT in particular, and explored a few strategies for increasing his speed and efficiency in working through passages. We talked about the value of reading the questions before the passages themselves before comparing his experience using the traditional approach of reading a passage in its entirety to the 'scavenger hunt' technique of skimming the passage for just the portions that allow him to answer any one specifics-oriented question at a time, and then returning to the more general questions after completing all of the detail-based ones. I asked him to apply these two techniques to a pair of practice passages before our next session, and to keep track of how long each passage takes.
