Session Summaries by PSAT Tutors

PSAT Tutoring review by Stacie in Akron, OH
This was a great first session with the student! She is incredibly bright and has a great grasp on the content for all sections of the PSAT/SAT, as evidenced by her diagnostic scores. She does feel that timing could be a concern, particularly on the math and reading sections, so we focused today on going through the practice test in the guide, doing some timed drills. We got through about half of the regular Math section and half of the Writing/Language section. Timing is definitely more of a concern on the math portion, but her content knowledge is so good that I am confident we will be able to get her pacing down before she tests. For our next session, we are planning to do timed practice on the non-calculator Math and Reading sections.

PSAT Tutoring review by David in Akron, OH
The student and I finished the ACT we started last time. She got 31/40 correct on the reading section, which is good but could be better, and 32/40 on science. Because she was having some trouble finding the right answers for the reading section, after we finished going over the test I gave her a few more practice passages that we then went over together. A lot of the mistakes she made were avoidable, so she should make sure she's really thinking about the questions she's answering and not rushing through. Next time I'd like to continue working on these parts of the ACT and making sure she gets at least 35/40 in each section, which would bring her close to a 36 on the test.

PSAT Tutoring review by Anna in Akron, OH
We covered the Algebra I--one third of the (P)SAT math section. We looked at a range of problems that could be in this section. The student was comfortable with the material and may review some inequality practice problems. We them began looking at the content for the Problem Solving Section. The student did practice problems in descriptive statistics, data conversion, and drawing information from tables and graphs. We will continue with this section on Thursday.

PSAT Tutoring review by Jacqueline in Akron, OH
The student and I had our first session today. He is very bright and was fully engaged the entire time we were working together. For our session, I discussed the components of the PSAT and gave a general outline. Then, we worked on some sample questions from the math and reading sections so that he would have a better idea of what he would be dealing with. On the math section, he is very advanced for his grade and very quickly picked up new concepts that he hadn't previously learned, such as radians and trigonometry. We will continue to work on those new concepts and discuss ways that we can solve problems more quickly. He had a harder time with the reading section; we will need to improve on reading comprehension of more difficult passages and on how to break down questions so that they are easier to deal with. I left him some practice questions to review his math concepts. Overall, he is great to work with, and I am looking forward to future sessions.

PSAT Tutoring review by Joanne in Akron, OH
Today the student and I worked on PSAT Reading and spent the entire hour identifying the main idea of each passage. We worked on getting the student to familiarize with the technique of finding textual evidence from the passage to support an answer choice. This method of finding textual evidence is crucial because it is newly emphasized in the PSAT/SATs.

PSAT Tutoring review by Joseph in Akron, OH
The student did well on his practice ACT essay, scoring in the mid-20s. We shifted gears to the PSAT after that, going over the format and pacing of the test in detail, as well as giving a basic overview of the content. We also sat down with the student's parents to discuss college selection and our upcoming session schedule.
