Because this was the student's first session, we began by discussing her particular strengths, challenges, and areas of concern with respect to the SAT. She indicated that she needs help with time limits and strategies as well as some content across all sections, and expressed that she feels she's very bad at certain skills. I shared with her the ways in which it can help ease her preparation and improve her performance to start changing her habit of putting herself down in talking about the SAT and its sections, and we proceeded from there. In terms of specific sections, we spent this session focusing in the Critical Reading section at the student's request. After working through several sample Sentence Completion questions, we worked on root- and prefix-based vocabulary enrichment using the words that she had found unfamiliar as a starting point, and discussed how some of the vocabulary skills we were practicing could be applied to both the Passage-Based CR questions and her essay as well as to the Sentence Completions themselves. I asked her to complete a root-based vocabulary exercise and to practice using the new words she learned between this session and the next, and let her know that we would continue to add new roots and SAT-level words from now until the week before her test. We also examined a few strategies for the Sentence Completion questions, such as identifying clues as to the positive or negative tone that the missing word(s) should have, and analyzing its/their logical relationships to other elements in the sentence. We looked at some key words and sentence structures that tell the student when a missing word is being followed by a longer description of the word or by an antonym, etc., and also practiced narrowing our initial focus to just one missing word in double-blank sentences to rule out answers that don't work for that blank before moving on to consider the other missing word. From this point, we moved on to helping the student prepare for the Passage-Based questions. We talked about the approach that she has taken in the past and identified which types of passages that approach best suits, and looked at three other approaches that she can take in order to move through longer passages and non-fiction more efficiently and with less need to re-read sections in order to refresh her memory while answering questions. Specifically, we went over the "Chunking" technique at one end of the spectrum, wherein she reads the questions and then reads the entire passage in sections of a manageable size, answering the specifics-based questions for each section as she finishes it; the "Scavenger Hunt" approach at the other end of the spectrum, in which she answers each specifics-based question without reading the whole passage first, by skimming and scanning until she finds the information she needs and then reading that information carefully, and finally tackling the whole-passage-based general questions last; and the hybrid "Back-and-Forth" approach whereby she reads the questions first, then starts reading the passage from the beginning and answering any questions that she's reminded of as she reads, and finally tackles any remaining questions after finishing the passage. We didn't have time in this session to work on paired passages, but agreed to give the strategies for working with them top priority in our next session. Although I didn't see any detailed scores this session, her parents let me know that the student had scored in the mid-1400's on her practice test. Certainly, she is bright and very willing to work hard to improve her scores; she was eager to try the new techniques we practiced in this section, and picked up new content very quickly. I am confident that she can improve her score dramatically as long as she continues along the lines of this very promising beginning, and I very much look forward to helping her achieve her goals!

I've assigned the student to learn 25 new vocabulary SAT words a week, as vocab is the primary limiting factor to his improving his score. For Critical Reading, I taught him to read through each new passage once all the way through before answering any questions (before he was just skimming and going directly to the question and sometimes missing the main point of the passage). We also practiced a paired passage, and the student actually did quite well on this, only had trouble with some of the harder questions. The student is a smart kid so as long as he applies himself, he can improve!

We began preparing the student for the assessment by completing pages 1 to 13. Tasks 1, 2 and 3 included reading short passages with written responses to questions and reading a long passage and responding with an essay. Key concepts highlighted during the session included writing with complete sentences and carefully reading all directions before completing exam tasks.
