Session Summaries by Test Prep Tutors

Pasadena, CA Test Prep tutoring
Today, the student and I reviewed her homework from the last time that we met. She got everything correct in the verbal section, which included logical reasoning, scrambled paragraphs, and reading. There were about 10-12 errors in the 50 problem math section that we reviewed. About half of the problems that we went over were geometry-related, and the other half were abstract reasoning problems. In total, the student got an 85% on the model test that she took. She seems to be struggling a little with geometry so I left her with some geometry review problems and geometry explanations. I also left her with some verbal reasoning problems just to ensure that she is getting continued practice with those problems.

The student and I started by reviewing her homework, and because she struggled with some of the reading section for homework, we started our session by working through an entire reading section. She continues to struggle with inferences, but she is improving steadily. Then, we worked on a mathematics section, and she has greatly improved working through word problems. She still struggled a bit with the symbol questions, but she is getting better. Thereafter we completed a verbal section and an essay section. In the verbal section, she still has problems with the synonyms, but she has greatly improved on vocabulary in context. Her essay was also strong, but she had a few organizational issues with her body paragraphs (they lacked topic sentences). We ended the session by talking about the test and application process. For homework, she was to rework math problems, finish a mathematics section, and rewrite parts of her essay.

Today we covered reading passages, including two that the student had completed. On both the fiction and the natural science passages, she initially scored 6/10 correct. For each passage, there were 2 questions that she originally had correct, and then she changed her answer to an incorrect one. We analyzed each of her choices for the incorrect answers, and also went through lots of strategies for approaches to all of the reading passages. For our next session, she will work on the humanities and social sciences passages in her current ACT practice book, and will also complete a fiction passage that I provided for her. We completed the session with another assignment, where she will pick from one of 3 essay prompts and complete an essay for me to score.
