Session Summaries by SAT Writing and Language Tutors

South Gate, CA SAT Writing and Language tutoring
We worked on one more difficult Reading passage, which the student did quite well on. We reviewed the strategy of using the quotes from follow-up Command of Evidence questions to answer the preceding questions. For the remainder of the session, we focused on the Math (no calculator) section, specifically on identifying shortcuts and using the answer choices to gain more insight into problem solving. Topics covered included systems of equations, special right triangles, similar triangles, and how coefficients a, b , and c affect the shape and position of a parabola.

We worked on punctuation and some grammar problems off the site from the English section for one hour. Then, we reviewed when to use punctuation. We eventually switched to math and found fractions and algebra were a bit hard, so we did a combination of fraction problems and algebra problems from the site with review. We also worked on word problems.

We worked on ratios, percentages, counting and logic questions for the math section today. She had a little trouble with ratios and proportions, but got better with it as time went on. She is getting really good at the word problems and can do them quickly and without help. For the writing section, we went over subject/verb or verb/noun agreements.

We worked on reading comprehension and math. The student needs some review for math but is otherwise strong. Reading is more of a struggle. Some of the passages are long and complicated, and she really struggles to understand them and summarize them in her own words. Sometimes she grabs phrases out of context to summarize the paragraph instead of understanding what they mean in context and explaining in her own words. Moving forward, we'll do more practice reading and summarizing.

We worked on reading comprehension for the lesson. We started off with understanding the types of SAT passages and common structure/ organization of each type. I showed the student techniques to actively read a passage, so that he doesn't have to go back and re-read large chunks of the passage again. We examined the main point, purpose, structure, and functional elements of a passage, and worked together on how to effectively analyze a piece prior to reading questions. For about a third of the lesson, we also worked together on some verbal logic problems, to train his mind to look for the relationship of ideas rather than loose facts from a passage.

We worked on SAT math today. The student took a practice SAT test yesterday, and scored higher on reading and writing than she did on math, so we want to spend a little more time working on that portion of the test.
