Session Summaries by Test Prep Tutors

Mount Prospect, IL Test Prep tutoring
We went over basic SAT strategy using Process of Elimination combined with an informed choice of the remaining possible answers, and began covering Sentence Completion & Passage-Based Reading strategies (POE for both and marking up the sentences for clues and the passages for main ideas, opinion statements, names, and dates, for SC and PBR, respectively). Because of the fact that the student has severe test anxiety (I was informed of this by her mother and the student, herself), I went over the scientifically-determined effective stress relief strategies found in the beginning of most SAT strategy guides (e.g. physical exercise). I also pointed out that if she had left blank the multiple-choice problems that she had gotten wrong on the last SAT exam she took, with an average scaling factor of around 20, that her scores would have been approximately 100 points higher on each section, to demonstrate that you don't have to be a master test-taker in order to do well on the SAT. I assigned her a few problems from Sentence Completion and Passage-Based Reading with no time constraints so that she could focus on learning SAT strategy and methodology for next time.

The student and I covered some signal vocab for the critical reading section: common terms used for tone, mood, and complex words common to the test. We then went over general strategies for reading, emphasizing how to break down the long passages into manageable parts and summarize as you go. We then implemented all this in a quick practice test, and I asked her to do some critical reading exercises when she finds the time this week and I will send her some more vocab to review.
