Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This session the student and I talked about the weaknesses that she still had in taking the ACT. She knew very well that she wanted more practice writing the essay and going over the science sections. We did some practice brainstorming for the essay and looked at sample essays. Then we did practice science sections with special focus on the compare and contrast science sections, and we reviewed different strategies. Overall, she is doing a good job of staying motivated in reviewing on her own time and she knows what her weaknesses are and what she needs to work on. I told her to ideally do more science practice and brainstorm for an essay."
"The student and I worked on the reading section, with special focus on questions that require inference. We also reviewed his most recent SAT scores and talked about strategies to beat his most recent scores."
"The student and I began our session by going over the science section she had finished on her own last week. We then switched to math and we went through problems on the website together. We finished the session by having her start a math section. I had circled the problems that she should definitely get right and starred a few that were more of a reach but were still possible. We had time to begin the first ten, which she got all correct. She will do more on her own if she had time, or we will continue with it on Thursday. Unfortunately we have still not received her March test scores. We expect them soon. She will still take the test this Saturday, which we should get back more quickly."
