Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we reviewed the two practice exams the student took over the past week. She is significantly improving, especially in writing. We also discussed strategies to review before the actual exam. She seems well suited for the college entrance exam and I believe she is ready to take it. She has done a lot of preparation work and her test score will reflect that in comparison to her initial diagnostic."
"Today, the student and I spent about half of the session working on writing. We focused on a few different types of writing questions in particular, including subject misplacement and verb agreement. We spent some time doing critical reading, and she did a practice math section on her own with a timer. The thing that seems to still be knocking the most points off of her score in the writing sections is not knowing what certain words mean ; continuing to use flashcards will definitely help this, as well as reading publications that use these more advanced words."
"This was the student's last session before her ACT exam next weekend, so we concentrated on finding ways to make her a more efficient and effective reader for this exam. She showed real improvement for both time and accuracy. We meet next Sunday to prepare her for the AP exams."
