Session Summaries by PSAT Tutors

Rancho Cucamonga, CA PSAT tutoring
While the student's math homework showed about the same score as before, she showed great progress in reading this week. Many of the student's mistakes on the math test were probably due to her solving problems mentally instead of writing out her work, for she definitely had the correct initial rationale for each question. In today's writing drill, the student still struggled with coming up with very specific examples in support of her thesis statement, but after some discussion she was able to refine her initial outline. We will be adding more writing practice to her homework beginning next week. The student summarized for me what she learned from the grammar chapter in her prep book and did a great job of applying the grammar rules she encountered last week. We concluded our session by solving some especially challenging math problems and highlighting the appropriate time-saving shortcuts. Homework: math practice section 8, reading practice section 2, and review "Chapter 11: Identifying Sentence Errors."

The student and I worked on completing the last section of the critical reading portion of the SAT sample test 1 and moved onto the first section of the writing. For the reading, he does well when you break it down and contemporize the meaning. As for the writing, we worked through the sentence revisions and the underlined error questions. In regards to the first type of question, he performed better the more we talked and explained various error patterns to watch out for (particularly incorrect conjunctions). When we continue with the rest of the section on Sunday (his assigned homework), I'll be checking to see if when well-rested he better identifies the very subtle errors that the test is throwing at him.

The student and I once again covered the material that he had tested himself on during the previous week. We reviewed more sentence completion questions, as well as focusing on functions, ratios, and geometry in math. Specifically, I want him to be able to approach a math problem AND discern very quickly what it is they want from us. I also let him know that many of the math problems that he will encounter on the SAT will involve more abstract ideas and might not have an "exact" answer for say, x and y. However, they might want to know what x * y is, or x+y. Since we cannot solve for both simultaneously, this will be our cue to try and rearrange the problem so that we can get the variables in a form that we are able to work with and then match up with the available answer choices. Overall, he is in very good form and always is prepared for the tutoring session with his work completed in advance. The quality of his work is also great, he takes notes while I speak and writes little hints to himself on the problems that give him a hard time.

In today's session, the student and I reviewed his revision of his first SAT essay response, discussing specific ways to address how features can substantiate and further an author's claim and logical reasoning. In the second half of our session, we reviewed several questions he missed in his Writing and Language practice, targeting questions concerning word choice, focus, and modifiers. We concluded our session with a review of Command-of-Evidence questions and a guided practice with a sample Science passage from the Evidence-Based Reading section. He will be taking a full practice test this weekend and completing a response to the sample prompt 2.

In today's session, we went over questions from a full-length Math SAT section. This section was the last one of the test, so the student has now completed one full SAT. The problems we worked on today were all multiple choice, and I was very encouraged by her progress in this regard. She had used the right process on pretty much every question, and was usually tripped up only by missing out on one final step. Overall, we will continue to focus on identifying the proper first step in solving math problems, as that is the only lingering issue I identified from today's work. Tomorrow, we will be going over the word problems from this section, which sounded like they gave her more trouble. Afterwards, we will assess the SAT as an overall unit, and formulate a plan for future work.

In today's session, we went through phases, phase changes, thermochemistry, and gas laws/ ideal gas behavior. I think overall, the student is picking up on this material very well, but she will greatly benefit from doing a lot of practice problems on her own. She should be able to do most of the problems from about half of the chapters in her practice book. We are going to go through kinetics and equilibrium on Saturday and then go through any material we have already covered that she may be struggling with.
