Session Summaries by SAT Writing and Language Tutors

Pasadena, CA SAT Writing and Language tutoring
The student and I reviewed concepts for his science test. We worked on discussing work, power, and energy. As part of his review, we did several practice exercises and discussed examples for each concept. Because he was to be given a formula sheet on the test, I made sure he knew all the units so he could use the formulas correctly.

The student actually has a limits quiz in calc tomorrow, so we spent our session preparing for that. We addressed several approaches, and talked about how different expressions/ problems call for different ones. We also went over a couple of limits that are just worth memorizing and nonexistent limits of periodic functions. A few factoring tricks as well as all of L'Hopital's rule seemed to be lodged pretty far back in his memory, so I'm really glad we were able to practice some of these things before the quiz.

Today, the student and I worked through a practice ACT test, and we focused on the Reading, Science, and Math sections. We worked through the Reading section first, and we were able to get through three passages. I noticed that she did extremely well on the nonfiction passage that we read through but struggled a bit on the other two prose style passages. I think her struggles were mainly due to her interpretation of those passages and what the writer was trying to say. We will definitely work on that in our next session. The Math and Science sections went particularly well, with her only making a few errors.

This was our first session. The student has a good handle on what he needs to focus on so we talked about Europe and Byzantium after the fall of the western Roman Empire. I'd say we covered roughly 500 to 1200 CE. We still have the High Middle Ages and the Renaissance, but we covered a lot of ground today, with a focus on the themes that form the basis of most AP exam questions. I will send the materials I used today and practice questions on what we covered today. He was a great audience today!

We reviewed accounting and business management. The student discussed her material at length and wanted to know as much as she could to further her understanding. I included the strategy of seeing the balance sheet as a personal bank statement and the income statement as W-2 annual income. The student understands the material well and benefits from discussing it out loud.

Today we revisited reporting categories for the state assessment's math section. We looked at Algebraic Expressions, Geometry, and Measurement. The student is still struggling with coordinate grids and identifying the y and x coordinates of lines and points. The underlying issue is that she is struggling with reading number lines. The student also struggles with vocabulary. Reading is a huge part of successfully solving a math problem. We will continue to work on decoding the problem and using problem solving strategies.
