I am tutoring my son at home, started preparing him for tests a week ago. I have tried to get him into a tutoring session however have not been able to find someone who will take him on at this stage, tutors are like gold dust, but we have not given up yet, so still looking for a tutor!!!!
Anyhow in our current situation I really need to be focusing on what questions I need to prepare my son for, he is finding comprehensions hard and I'm still not quite sure what is involved in the two 45 minute papers, Although I have read the contents of the following link;viewtopic.php?f=11&t=14423#p17118
I still want to know how the comprehension section of the paper is set, as far as i have understood, it sometimes consists of 1 or 2 text passages where the answers can also be given in Multiple Choice answers.
Then there is the proof reading passage, with spelling, grammar and punctuation errors, which the children need to correct.
or a L-O-N-G cloze activity.....what does this entail?
Finally there are missing words, shuffled sentences questions, are these part of verbal reasoning section of the test?
Are all sections mixed up? Are there a separate section on synonyms, and antonyms? What resource can I use to teach him these at the level expected of him?
Please help? 1
