Session Summaries by ASPIRE Tutors

ASPIRE Tutoring review by Robert in Madison, WI
Today I met with the student for our last session on SAT Physics. We started by reviewing the material that she was unsure of after the last test. This included circuits, optics, and a couple of mechanics questions. We then took another timed test, this time using the diagnostic test so that we could determine a rough score. She did much better on this test, completing the entire test and answering enough right to score a raw cumulative score of 52.75 out of 75. This is about a 750 according to the rubric. In reviewing the test, we found that those areas with which she was having trouble included two mechanics sections she has not yet done in school (on gravity and harmonic motion) and some material on electric fields, which we haven't covered since the summer. She aced the new material that we just covered this winter. Overall I'm feeling pretty confident that she will do well on the SAT Physics test. She is already comfortable with the timing and needs only review the material again for refresher close to the test date. Best of luck to her on the AP and SAT Physics tests!

ASPIRE Tutoring review by Scott in Madison, WI
We began by discussing her prior experience with SAT prep and reviewing her score sheets from previous exams. Next, we covered some basics and began working on the math section. She learned some new strategies, and we completed a number of practice problems together. For homework she will review Chapters 15-18 and note any terms or concepts she would like to go over together. In our next session, we will continue working on math.

ASPIRE Tutoring review by Alex in Madison, WI
We focused mainly on percentage problems, including word problems. The student was generally good at setting up these type of problems, but needed practice. Word problems were sometimes a challenge, but we will practice these more.

ASPIRE Tutoring review by Catherine in Madison, WI
The student and I had a terrific math session. I think she made a great leap this week. We've never covered so much ground together before. First, we reviewed together the two methods of solving systems-- substitution and combination. This is foundational algebra. She has struggled with it in the past, but after today's review, she did a great job of applying it. She just needs to be slightly more careful about subtracting negatives. On the two practice math sections (one multiple choice, one grid in) that she completed for this week, she reached and surpassed her goal score of 500. She told me that she was working with her school graphing calculator, and that it helped her significantly. I think she should ask her teacher as soon as possible whether she can borrow that calculator on the day of the test. We still have a lot of progress to make in focus and consistency, and 500 on the math section will still be a challenge, but she proved this week that she is capable of that and more. For next week, she will review absolute values on page 322 and exponentials on page 309. She will also complete two more timed math sections, one beginning on page 671, the other beginning on page 709.

ASPIRE Tutoring review by Olivia in Madison, WI
We continue to drill practice essays as well as multiple choice sections. He needed help with coming up with strong examples for the essays during the 25-minute time period. When we go over it, I try to give him a variety of different possible examples, just so that he starts thinking about a broader range of options to use. He tends to forget that current events are often applicable, as the questions tend to lend themselves to trends that are prevalent in the world today and throughout history. His multiple choice sections have gotten very strong, with vocabulary still being his main issue.

ASPIRE Tutoring review by Laura in Madison, WI
The student and I had an excellent final session reviewing the SAT before she takes the test. She had completed three sections prior to our meeting, so we started by reviewing these. The student completed both the Math sections, doing well on one and spectacularly (only one wrong!) on the other. To improve her Math performance further, the student only needs to broaden her range of techniques slightly, remembering that she doesn't merely have to solve the problem abstractly, she can also try substitutions. She occasionally feels slightly overwhelmed by a problem (and unsure of how to do it) -- if she jumps in (and starts trying numbers), the problem is often easier than she anticipates. (There are also a few rules for her to review: e.g. 3^-x is /3^x, and two perpendicular lines have slopes that, multiplied together, equal -1). Her strong Math skills (combined with a few savvy strategies) should serve her well here. She's also improving on the critical reading section. It's important for her to remember that the Critical Reading section asks her to do two things: 1) Pay attention to the ACTUAL DETAILS included (She's doing well with this), 2) Understand what the general thrust of the passage is and interpret it. We spent our time practicing how to pick up the main thrust of a passage. We discussed the importance, first, of identifying the central concern of a passage (e.g. contrast between "new art" that is abstract and normal art that represents people and emotions) -- and then staying focused on this central contrast. The student proved how very much she has learned by practicing the same technique of identifying and contrasting main themes in two short paragraphs on SUVs and then answering all four comparative questions correctly (these used to be her least favorites!). She's made excellent progress and is doing well on simpler passages. She's going to practice this reading for main points once or twice before the test and then will head in -- I'm hopeful that she'll have good results, and I'm confident we can lift them further!
