Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student got his test back that he took from a few weeks ago and we spent our time going over it. We also spent the vast majority of our time working on ways to write the essay. In sort of a this is how you write all your essays for the ACT, etc. type of way."
"The student and I began to work on ACT prep. She showed a surprising capability with some of the science passages; but needed some help analyzing a few of the graphs. We also took a look at some of the passage-based reading, which was pretty similar to the SAT, so we used some of the same strategy there."
"We corrected the English and science sections the student did for homework, and then covered reading. It seems like he's a bit worried about time, so he essentially doesn't read the passage and has to go back and forth quite a bit. We talked through and practiced a different strategy of reading to understand the topic of each paragraph, reading the questions, finding the answer in the passage, and then looking for that answer among the choices. It's going to take him a bit to get used to it, but he's doing a few passages this weekend so he gets comfortable and we can start working on speeding up the process."
