Session Summaries by Test Prep Tutors

Omaha, NE Test Prep tutoring
The student completed the mini-test and the Unit 2 cumulative test since our last session. I reviewed her work while she did a warm-up exercise over the 7's and 9's times table, and reducing fraction by hand and with a calculator. She did quite well on the mini-test and the cumulative test. As expected, she struggled the most on converting units (especially standard units) over multiple steps. She also missed a few questions where she was asked to give the ratio of two things. She switched the order a couple of times. Overall, we were both very happy that she scored 81% on the cumulative test. We moved on to start Unit 3 on algebra. We will have to spend a decent amount of time on this section, as well as the following unit on geometry. We began slowly today with adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing with positive and negative numbers. The concept of adding and subtracting negative numbers was quite challenging for the student. Working with a number line seemed to help her understand things visually. We were able to boil it down to a few rules to follow when adding and subtracting. It was still a slow process for her to do example problems on her own. She mostly was able to do them correctly. We also worked a bit with multiplying and dividing and how to remember what the sign of the final answer is. We did several example problems together that included multi-step addition/ subtraction/ etc. Next we discussed the order of operations. I introduced her to the pneumatic PEMDAS to help remember what the order of operations are. We walked through a couple of examples to demonstrate the use of PEMDAS. She seemed a bit unfamiliar with exponents, so we may have to tackle that later on. Finally, we started to introduce algebraic expressions and the use of variables. The study guide book next tried to introduce how sentences can be translated into an algebraic expression. For example, five less than four times a number is equal to 4x-5. I chose to begin here at our next session with fresh eyes. For homework, I assigned her to do all the remaining addition/ subtraction/ etc. practice problems that we didn't do together.

In today's session we figured out what the student's strengths and weaknesses are in the exam. After working through some practice sections, we observed that she is strong in the critical reading passage questions. She is definitely more confident in the passage based questions, so we will focus less on that part of the test. She has a lot of problems with the vocabulary section, so I suggested that she look up vocab lists and review 10 words a day.

We went over the basic subject areas and topics of the student's assessment test and discussed the student's educational history. I asked the student to do some sample questions and practice tests, so that I can diagnose priority areas for those subjects.

This was my first session where I taught multiple students! I found having siblings work side by side made them more proactive, focused and generally interested in the material as they fed off one another's energy and wanted to participate. I had assigned three sections during my conversation with their mother in setting up the first session, and was very pleased that they'd completed all sections (math, writing and reading)! We went over how to do the math problems in as few steps as possible, boiling it down to what the question was really asking for and making sure we answered the question at hand. In the writing section, they generally misread or "self corrected mentally" sentence error questions where they picked 'no error' and there was an error. With Reading, we focused on trying to put what the author is saying into plain English-- especially useful when the passage was written a hundred years ago. I taught them how to use hints from the passage and in the question itself to narrow down the answer choices. Pretty soon, they could see why the alternate answer choices did not work. Lastly, they took notes on words they didn't know, and looked them up and wrote down the definitions in their notebooks. In the end we discussed word meanings, pronunciation and how to use it in a sentence. We moved at a very brisk but proactive pace which meant we got to cover a lot-- it helped that they could switch off reading questions/analyzing questions and strategically choosing the answers.

The student had finished another practice, and done very well on it. This meant that we had a lot of time to talk about her essay, which was very good, and was improved by tightening some of the introduction and eliminating or condensing obvious statements. In our next session, we will go over the new test she plans to have taken by then.

We worked on multiple-choice writing section problems, reading section problems, and even did some math. The student has shown a lot of improvement in basically every section. I'm having him complete a practice test this week.
