Session Summaries by Test Prep Tutors

Test Prep Tutoring review by Laura in Albany, NY
Today I focused on geometric concepts with the girls. We named shapes and went over differences between solid and plane figures. We also covered congruent and symmetrical shapes. We finished the session with reading comprehension exercises.

Test Prep Tutoring review by Meredith in Albany, NY
The student and I scored her latest practice test and began to review it. She said that the practice went better with the additional time, but she still struggled to finish the Reading section. We reviewed the English and Math questions that she missed on the practice. In English, many of the questions she missed were from not reading the question carefully, which can often happen when fatigue sets in. One of the trade offs of additional time is having to stay focused longer, so we will come up with strategies to help her regain focus during the exam. On the Math, she most often missed problems when she took a more complicated approach than what was called for, and seemed to struggle most with word problems. We will do extra practice with word problems to help with this.

Test Prep Tutoring review by Anna in Albany, NY
The student and I spent 1.5 hour on science and 30 minutes on reading. The student completed an entire science section, stopping after each passage to check and debrief answers. The student scored 31/40 correct in 43:00 minutes (approx. 64 seconds per question). The target score is 36/40 in 35:00 minutes (approx. 52 seconds per question). Moving forward, we will step up incrementally toward target by implementing cutoffs at 40:00 minutes (60 seconds per question) and aiming for 33/40 correct in next two sessions. The strategies we discussed included skimming text and spending more time identifying trends in graphs and tables, drawing a picture, and directly underlining what the question is asking you to find.

Test Prep Tutoring review by Meghan in Albany, NY
Student 1 and I read a short story to student 2 and student 3 and discussed comprehension questions together. The students then completed a synonym exercise. Student 2 and student 3 and I then read through this week's reading passage entitled and spent time discussing the meaning of different parts of the passage as well as the vocabulary. Lastly, student 2 read aloud to me a library book she had chosen taking time as we went to discuss the story.

Test Prep Tutoring review by Hillary in Albany, NY
Today I had an excellent session with the student. He was very attentive and efficient today, working through half a practice test quickly and missing very few questions. He got about 80% of the multiple choice math questions we went through and only missed three questions of the seven reading passages we worked through. He also did well on vocabulary; we worked through two vocab sections. We also worked through a couple of improving sentences passages. He got about 90% of those correct.

Test Prep Tutoring review by Arvind in Albany, NY
Today the student and I covered in-depth a few science sections of the test. This seems to be the section in which she requires the most help. Once I lead her thinking with questions, she is able to arrive at the answer after some time, but she needs to work on coming to conclusions on her own. I emphasized thinking of each experimental set-up in its most fundamental form and then building from there. Some progress was seen by the end of the session.
