Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This was a good session with the student today. We approached grammar and mechanics with relation to the English section. For English, I provided a grammatical style guide, with numbered rules, formats, and style recommendations. We first explored how the form and function of a rule can be expressed by writing and giving self made examples. Once this was tried three times, we simulated test taking situations. We ran a 15 minute practice with a mock test for the English section. We then scored the results in time and accuracy. It was a great session!"
"Today the student and I went over ACT science problems. She will be taking full length subject practice test for our next session, so we will be able to see what her areas of strengths are. The science practice test should give her a clearer picture of what to expect and it will let me know what areas to focus on. Our next few sessions before the test will be focusing on each subject."
"Today we focused primarily on ACT Science and Math. We talked about general strategies to use in order to maximize points. After discussing passage types and how to approach each one, we then reviewed some questions from a practice test she took. After that, we talked about ACT Math and began our discussion with a look at strategies and how to look out for "trap" answer choices. We will have a science practice test before our next session."
