Session Summaries by PSAT Tutors

Waterbury, CT PSAT tutoring
Today we worked on the reading and writing sections using practice test #2. The student seemed to struggle in the passages today, and I think it may be because she was jumping into the questions without grasping the main idea of the passage. She needs to remind herself to really try to understand the gist of the passage before moving onto the questions and to take the evidence-based reading approach (finding specific parts in the passage that support her answer) when solving the questions. We'll continue to work on this. For homework, I have assigned her to complete the remainder of the Verbal portion we did not cover today and the verbal portions (reading and writing) of practice tests #2 and #3.

Today, I introduced the student to the concepts of geometry, using this topic to explain the rules under triangle formation, sine and cosine laws, similar triangles, special angles, sohcahtoa, obtuse and reflex angles, the quadrant laws, and pie in radian in relation to circles. At the end of the session, we researched tough SAT trig questions online, and worked through the solutions. I left him with a full timed SAT practice test as homework.

Today, I worked with the student on the English portion of the ACT, especially focusing on grammar and reorganizing content. I used a practice problem set with him, and I had him explain to me why he chose each answer so that I could get a better sense of the way he tried to attempt these kinds of problems. I will be giving him extra practice to work on this week. He had a good/eager attitude during the session.

Today, the student and I focused on math, which was his weaker subject on the last SAT. We went over several types of problems, including systems of equations, functions, equations of circles, and interpreting word problems. He was a fast learner and did a good job applying the concepts we learned in session to the problems. One topic we will continue to look at next session will be equations of circles and how they relate to the distance formula, as these problems can definitely be tricky. Overall, it was a good first session with him.

Today, the student and I began by starting working through his SAT book. When I noticed him struggling on a problem involving slope intercept form, we stopped to review slope. We spent time graphing lines based on different information given and using a line to write the equation. After reviewing these concepts, we continued to work from the SAT book.
