We were able to cover a lot of SAT material. We began the session with a review of SAT probability; the student did not have a difficult time with the question I provided on the subject. We then began the geometry section. He seems to have quite a knack for geometry. While covering basic angle, line, and triangle concepts, he got the majority of the review questions correct with little difficulty. Things got a little more difficult when we began to discuss the Pythagorean Theorem and the 45-45-90 and 30-60-90 triangles. he had a very difficult time with these types of questions, so I have decided we will do some additional practice at the start of our next session to cover this.

Since the student had taken a practice SAT since our last session, we spent this session working through many of the questions she had missed on that SAT. We started out with a math section. Seeing the different ways that these concepts can appear and be used on the SAT seems to be key to helping her shift her thinking from the straightforward math she does in school to the more convoluted thinking that these problems entail. On these, though, she did manage to correct herself on a few of them the second time around with no help from me. This is good because it shows that she understands the problem and how to answer it. On the critical reading section, her reading comprehension seems good, but needs more vocabulary practice. We've discussed a few ways she can work on increasing her vocabulary by reading more widely or keeping a list of words she comes across that she doesn't recognize. I think in our coming sessions, we'll also spend some time devising sentences for words from SAT vocabulary lists. The main trouble with learning the SAT vocabulary is that the lists are so broad that memorizing definitions for each of them is simply impossible; however, if she can give herself some context in which she has seen the words, she can at least remember connotation and perhaps how the word was used. This is all she will need to correctly answer the vocabulary-based questions on the test. Finally, in the writing section, I am still encouraging her to examine all the answer choices and articulate a reason to herself for why that answer choice must be grammatically incorrect both to keep her from marking the wrong answers and to satisfy her worry that she'll mark a wrong answer as "No error." In general, though, she seems to have stopped marking these "No error" questions incorrectly, which is excellent progress. In addition to keeping a list of new vocabulary words and continuing to read widely, I suggest that she continue working on a handful of SAT questions per day to keep her mind working in that vein and to continue exposing herself to the different ways the SAT will present different concepts.

The student and I started with vocabulary. Then, we moved on to do some practice "paired passages," where students have to compare/contrast what's happening in two passages about the same topic.

For homework, the student had finished the critical reading sections from the practice SAT test we had started during the last session. He had scored himself and said that he had gotten a 720 on the section, which is right at where he would like to be. We then reviewed the few questions he had problems with. We then started working on another practice test and went through the passages together. The student is skilled at analyzing the passage, and he is able to eliminate three choices quickly. Since he already is able to achieve high scores, the main thing we would like to work on is achieving consistency and knowing that he will always be able to attain a high score no matter what the passage is about. The student is motivated and does not need reminders to keep up with his work. He said that he had set his internet browser to open up a tab that would show the front page of a newspaper, and that it has helped his reading.
