"He took the science portion of the ACT. He did not finish the majority of it in time, so I made him finish the entire test. I am planning on switching up my tutoring style so that it is entirely up to him to explain why the answer he chose is correct or incorrect. I am planning on really involving and engaging him during our next session."
