Session Summaries by ASPIRE Tutors

Nashville, TN ASPIRE tutoring
The student and I had a good session working on the SAT mathematics section. She is making considerable progress both in getting a better grasp on the basic mathematical concepts for the test, and in gaining confidence. We're working on breaking problems down into simple formulas/concepts that she can use every time she encounters one of these problems, and I think both are becoming clearer (percent = part / whole x 100%, graphs have x-coordinates and y-coordinates -- the y-axis is the line where x=0 and the x-axis is the line where y=0). We will keep reviewing these. I've asked the student to complete on her own, all the problems from two separate sections. I know that she has a lot of the mathematical knowledge. The solo practice will help her become more comfortable with this!

I'm slowly making our beginning warm-up exercise a bit more difficult. The student is able to answer the questions correctly, if slowly. Overall, this is an improvement. She had taken two tests for homework since our previous session. The first was over the most recent topics - percents. We went over the errors she was making on those few types of questions. The other test was a cumulative exam over all the material we've covered together so far. We started on the next Unit - measurements and data analysis. The first lesson in the unit is on measurements systems - metric and standard. The student is from Canada, so she is very familiar with the metric system. The next section on perimeter, area, and volume were easy for her. She even did well on the complex questions that required her to find the area of complex shapes. In the last bit of our time I quickly went over data analysis - mean, median, mode, range. We'll start our next session going over this data analysis concepts again. Over the weekend, I assigned her to practice more with her times table flash cards and to go back over the previous sections we've worked through and complete the remaining questions.

The student and I reviewed geometric concepts yesterday involving angle relationships, triangles, polygons and parallelograms and perimeter/area questions. She did do very well on the basic angle relationship questions, but faltered when the problem grew more complex. I suggested to her that she should always try to fill out everything she knows, and by doing this she will eventually see an easy way to obtain her missing angle. For the triangle questions, she wasn't familiar with the special triangles, so I exposed her to the 30-60-90 and the 45-45-90 triangles and showed her that the ratios of each of these sides are actually found in the reference table given to her on the SAT math section.

The student and I reviewed his weekly math homework sheet from school. We went over how to express area in fractional terms, how to decompose fractions from word problems by drawing models, and how to compare fractions using models and the butterfly/alligator method (e.g., _ > _). We also reviewed his challenge problems on his homework covering multiplication computation, creating his own fraction problem, and comparing whole numbers. We then reviewed his additional practice assigned from the previous session, and he only missed two problems out of three worksheet pages. We reviewed how to subtract monetary amounts with regrouping, and how to compare fractions by drawing models. I will bring fraction bar manipulatives for him during our next session, which might help him conceptualize these types of problems better. We briefly reviewed how to round to the nearest ten and hundred for our lesson for the session. I assigned the student additional practice with rounding, adding and subtracting decimals, and solving word problems. He was very cooperative and focused throughout the session, and mentioned that he used his problem-solving strategies we discussed at school.

For homework, the student had completed the critical reading sections from last week. He also reviewed the other sections of the same test. He graded himself and got a 720 for his CR score. He is hoping to consistently get that score (or higher). He also said that he had looked at the workbook he had bought and had initially thought the problems seemed easy, but then changed his mind after getting a few wrong. During our session, he worked on the critical reading sections from another SAT practice test. He struggled a bit with the sentence completion questions, which was unusual since he tends to do well on those. Some of the vocabulary was very advanced, but other words were more commonplace and I encouraged him to keep up with his reading since the words he was unsure about do frequently show up in newspaper articles. Oftentimes, once he sees the right answer choice, he will see why that was the correct choice without guidance or explanation. He answered most of the passage-based questions correctly, although sometimes he misinterpreted some of the answer choices. Overall, he is a motivated student. He performs at a high level, so it is a matter of making sure that he remains consistent.

The student and I worked on critical reading and the mathematics sections. One of the student's habits on the sentence completion questions is to choose answers he knows are incorrect based on the fact that he knows the definition to those choices over words he does not know the definition to. While it might seem odd, it's actually in his interest to guess between two choices, even if he doesn't know a thing about either choice, if he can narrow down the answers to only those two choices. When we worked on the next critical reading section, he scored a 4/5, so I believe when he is pressed on that front, he does well. In regards to the math section, we picked up where we left off last session and talked about exterior angles relating to triangles and reconfiguring a figure. We will resume with the rest of section 6 from practice test 9 on Tuesday.
