Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student did a timed practice test last night, so we spent the first hour reviewing how he did and the questions he missed and why. His score equated to a composite of 28, with a math of 30, English of 31, reading of 25, and science of 26. That was an improvement over his original score of 26. Next, he did several more worksheets. I had him explain some of them to me so that he could understand the grammar behind his choices. Last, we did a 10-minute plan for a writing essay prompt. I had him explain to me how he would add in details and personal experiences. I asked him to do 2 passages of science and 2 of math online without timing for tonight. I think he has made really good progress in the areas that we have focused on. We have some really good strategies that he has been employing, and I think he is going to be prepared and confident for the test on Saturday."
"Today, we focused on math for about half the session, brushing up on the student's skills and practicing creative problem solving. We also did a quick review of the English section. Finally, he practiced the science section, focusing in particular on effective timing strategies. He has worked very hard throughout our meetings, and I think he's well prepared to do his best!"
"Focused on reviewing a practice set of ACT science questions. Answered questions on math and general strategies."
