Session Summaries by Test Prep Tutors

Palmdale, CA Test Prep tutoring
Today, she began her seventh ISEE -- Upper Level practice test. Specifically, she completed the first three sections of the practice exam. Following the work on her seventh ISEE practice test, we moved on to vocabulary development. We are continuing to use the "Vocabulary Cartoons" Book. Today, she took a retake quiz on Chapters 10 and 11 (to see how much she has retained from the last tutoring lesson). On the Chapter 10 Retake Quiz, she correctly defined 4 out of the 10 words (40%). On the Chapter 11 Retake Quiz, she correctly defined 6 out of the 10 words (60%). She is a very bright student. She is making good progress on her ISEE Exam preparation. She is always focused and on task.

We reviewed the student's work from last week, and I gave her new material for this next week. Her test is approaching soon, so I told her how to prepare on her own time.

The student and I spent today getting into the SAT Math. It was our first foray into this section, with her having already shown she can handle Reading and Writing, though of course, our work with these sections is far from over. I wanted her to get some exposure to the Math section so that she'd soon be in a position to take a full-length practice test. I began by explaining how the section unfolds from simple to complex, and how this must be used to a student's advantage in terms of time management. I went on to cover some basic problem-solving strategies as well, such as backsolving and substitution, and clearly outlined when to use these tactics. I then went through some practice problems that covered algebra and data analysis in a cursory manner. When it came time to do our practice problems, she did well on the easy to medium ones, but took far too much time. This was the first real red flag in her tutoring, and something we'll be addressing plenty in the weeks to come.

The student and I split our time between SAT and ACT reading passages, and discussed the stylistic differences between the tests. On the ACT, we focused primarily on detail-oriented questions in social science and humanities passages. On the SAT, we examined context and focused on strategies including process of elimination, evaluating key words, and splitting answer choices. We also worked through approximately 20 math questions with a focus on proportions and algebraic expressions.

The student and I split our time between the reading and writing type questions. That was the section in which he felt like he did the worst on the PSAT. He has all the skills in both of the categories, he just sometimes goes against his instinct or talks himself out of answers. We talked about slowing down and being more methodical and scientific (these are wrong, these are right).
