Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Today we went over a very specific format to write the essays, and did some practice outlines to get a better sense of what to do during the test. We reviewed some more math problems, which are coming along nicely, as well as more strategies when correcting sentences. A practice test, including an essay, is due by next Monday's session.

The student and I continued work in his workbook - particularly in the nonverbal reasoning section. We practiced verbal analogies and practiced number patterns online. He is becoming more familiar with verbal analogies and is learning how to examine relationships among words. As his test is next week, I have followed up with additional online practice he can utilize before then.

We covered sentence completion and geometry problems and strategies. The student has almost mastered the most commonly useful sentence completion strategies and I have asked that she do 20 to 30 minutes a day of SC and geometry flashcards.

The student and I spent the session going through the English, reading, and science sections of the test. We reviewed strategies that will save her time and help her get more answers correct. We went through several practice problems to reinforce the strategies and go over anything that was confusing.

The pupil and I talked through in-depth strategies for the math and reading portions of the ACT. We also discussed the strategy involved with developing points for the writing test. He is a sharp, young man and will do well on the ACT.

He is an incredibly inquisitive student. I have no doubt he'll improve his scores considerably in the coming weeks. Today's session focused on strategies for each section, and I assigned two practice tests before the upcoming exam.

We went over difficult science and reading passages from the practice tests in an ACT prep guide. The student performed better this time. I also looked over an essay from one of the practice tests she did and pointed out a couple of minor spots for improvement.

We did science for the first hour and finished the earth and space sciences practice problems we were going over. We focused specifically on questions involving research summary types and conflicting viewpoints. Then we did math and brushed up on a few key topics, such as graphing quadratics and finding the equation of a line, and went through several example problems until she felt more confident about these skills.

Because math was the student's weakest subject on the last ACT he took, we spent the first half of our session working on math exclusively. We spent the rest of the session working through reading and English passages, focusing on speed.

She had completed a science and some math, so we looked over her mistakes, which were fewer than they've been. If she can keep in mind the mantra "this is probably easier than you're making it," she should be just fine.

The first student and I went first. We worked on a different practice test with a focus on her explaining each of the steps. She is getting better at recognizing the problems. She is gaining more confidence after each session. The second student and I went over the last part of the practice test and he has been working on the other practice that I gave for homework. He progresses through the problems pretty fast and is right ~80% of the time. He knows the math. I keep stressing to them and their mother about doing flashcards of the terms--this should help them with vocabulary needed.

First Session: reviewed material for a quiz in tomorrow's Math class over graphs and tables for graphs.
