Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The students worked through 34 of the 40 questions in the science practice test today. This seemed to work well along with having them take turns or work together to answer questions. We discussed strategies as we worked as well. I encouraged them to make further use of the many practice options and detailed feedback available for more science practice for this week."
"The student and I finished going over the science section. She seemed to have a greater understanding of how to do these questions than she did before, which is good. Afterwards, we talked about general test-taking strategies. We also talked through the writing section, where I told her what kinds of sources she can cite as arguments. Additionally, I told her to write a thesis statement in the introduction and repeat it in the conclusion. Finally, as general advice, I told her to relax the night before the test and get a good night's sleep, along with eating breakfast the day of the test, and remembering her ID, ticket, and calculator with batteries."
"Today both students worked through an ACT math section. They both did well on a majority of the questions, and I clarified any concepts that they needed help with. We will review a full length practice test during our session on Wednesday."
