Session Summaries by SAT Writing and Language Tutors

SAT Writing and Language Tutoring review by Patrick in Minneapolis, MN
Worked through practice Reading, Math, and Writing sections of a practice SAT. I'm trying to focus on bringing the student's math score up, as that seems to be the area he's struggling most with.

SAT Writing and Language Tutoring review by Andrew in Minneapolis, MN
We continued refining the student's Math and verbal test taking skills, in practice test 5 of the review. I stressed simplification of sentence structure, and matching tense and plural/singular subject/verb. I demonstrated to the student how some "Math" problems are more easily solved when viewed as puzzles, rather than exercises in calculation or simplification of terms.

SAT Writing and Language Tutoring review by Thomas in Minneapolis, MN
We reviewed some example tests, and really concentrated on the bond and compliance area. He did well, and in my opinion, this was his best session of his first three. He understood more, and really did know the concepts. Then, as is our usual routine, I asked him several questions in every investment and compliance category, and again, he did his best on this section too. We will repeat this same strategy for his next session, which should be Tuesday.

SAT Writing and Language Tutoring review by Gary in Minneapolis, MN
We reviewed the following: 1. We went over his essay - much better than last time! It was organized and easy to follow. There were a few comma errors and a few spelling errors. If the student does have a few minor errors like these on the test, I don't think that they will impact his score too much. I did suggest that, if he has time, he should review his essay for spelling errors, as that seems to be the main thing that he is struggling with at the moment. I also reemphasized the importance of having a short outline before he starts writing. 2. We reviewed a couple of questions that he got wrong on a practice test. One dealt with a compound subject that came after, rather than before, the verb associated with it. We talked about how rearranging the sentence in this case could have helped him identify the number agreement error that was present in the sentence. We also talked about how to distinguish pronouns that function as subjects from those that function as objects. We talked about how object pronouns have to follow a preposition - you cannot have subject pronouns immediately following a preposition. 3.The student also wanted to go over a few reading questions. We reviewed some general strategies for the reading test. I also advised him to watch out for passages that are sarcastic or satirical. For example, we read a passage by Mark Twain that was meant to be sarcastic, and the student took Twain's comments as being literal. I talked about how he could have inferred from context that Twain was not being serious about the things that he was saying.

SAT Writing and Language Tutoring review by Lisa in Minneapolis, MN
Today I started the session by reviewing subject-verb agreement, which the student and I covered yesterday. He did well on all three common types of subject-verb agreement issues, only getting a few wrong on each sheet. His most trouble was with indefinite pronouns, so I made another list for him explaining which pronouns were always singular and which were always plural. Afterwards, I began explaining the next most common type of questions on the multiple choice SAT, which deal with pronoun-antecedent agreement and subject-object pronouns. I began with the easier of the two, pronoun-antecedent agreement. I explained to him that whenever a pronoun is underlined, one should first look to see if it matches its antecedent in number or case. I also explained to him that if it is unclear what the antecedent is referring to, a pronoun cannot be used and the noun must be named. I did an entire sheet with him as he struggled a little in the beginning with sentences that where unclear what noun the pronoun was referring to. His instinct was to make the pronoun plural, which would not be correct. After going through an entire sheet he became a little more confident to do the remaining exercises on his own. When he felt more comfortable with the concept on pronoun-antecedent agreement, I moved on to subject-object pronouns which is a little more difficult. Since he had no background in subject and objects in sentences, I had to review this concept with him. I started out by letting him know that anything that was inside a prepositional phrase would be an object no matter what. After he felt comfortable doing those types of exercises, I then went over what a direct object was, emphasizing that they only follow action verbs. I also went over that subject will almost always be in front of the action verb. Once he did a few of these exercises, I then explained to him that linking verbs do not take objects, they take subjects and had him identify the verbs in the sentences and whether they were action or linking to determine whether or not he needed a subject or object pronoun to correctly complete the sentence. I did quite a few of these exercises with him because he was a little overwhelmed with all of the new information. Eventually, he was able to complete the sentences on his own. Even though he was not that confident in himself, I assured him that for just learning the material he was grasping it very quickly and was doing quite well for learning all of that new material in a short amount of time. At the end of the session, he expressed that he would like to have another session to go over remain types of sentences on the multiple choice section of the Writing portion of the SAT.
