Session Summaries by SSAT Tutors

Shoreline, WA SSAT tutoring
Because we have spent the past two sessions focusing on grammar and vocabulary, we decided to spend our entire session today working on reading comprehension. The first reading was a TOEFL level passage on a science topic and the student did extremely well. She told me that she was feeling very focused and felt that the vocabulary was not too hard. She scored a 5 out of 6 on the comprehension test which is her best score by far. Our second passage was a bit more difficult. Even though she was intimidated by the vocabulary, she was still able to determine the general meaning. She scored a 7 out of 10 on the comprehension questions, but it took her a long time to answer the questions. We will need to work on her speed in the coming week. After she took the test, the student and I went over the vocabulary in the passage that she had questions on. I have assigned her a vocabulary assignment for homework.

We began by analyzing two model essays -- one good, and one average -- for structure and coherence, and then did the same with one of the two homework essays written by each of the students. Then, we discussed the essay tips that the students read at home, and again analyzed their second essays done for homework. We then went on to look at a 12-point SAT essay, determining the elements that garnered it such a high score. The hardest part for the students, in writing their essays, has been time management, and so we discussed ways that they could finish their essays more quickly. They had a fun and upbeat attitude toward the material, and the actual content of their essays (separate from structure) was complex and interesting. They were given more tips and strategies to read, along with homework to write two more essays. Among the major takeaways from our study session was that the students need to write their conclusion, as well as their topic sentences, before filling in the body of the text of their essays.

Today the student and I began by working on a multi-step geometry problem that involved multiple shapes, in order to practice calculating areas and side lengths with limited information. We then discussed the practice SSAT that the student took last Saturday. We talked about which questions should require less time than others. We also practiced scanning a question quickly to eliminate wrong answers and search for obvious right answers before carefully considering every choice. The student needs to continue working on learning vocabulary. She should focus on developing the breadth of her vocabulary, rather than a deep understanding of all the words, as there is no way to know which words will show up on the test. I emailed her some good word lists with hundreds of words she should become familiar with as she prepares for test day.
