Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"For the first hour of the session, the student and I reviewed his homework. His accuracy had improved and he attributed this to the review we had the day before and that he had to explain his reasoning, which made him think more carefully about the questions. We were both happy with his progress and reviewed items that we want to cover when we go over grammar next week. During the second hour, I gave the student a prompt to respond to and then graded it. Before he started writing, we talked about the planning process and I suggested that he jot down a few notes before he started writing. This did help him and he wrote a longer essay than he generally does and feels he is capable of because he was prepared."
"The student and I reviewed long division and multiplication tables, and she did really well. She had no trouble completing her worksheet."
"We covered general strategies for test-taking, adapted for the ACT. Specifically: batching answer entries, time management (and how to practice time management for the test day), and managing confidence on test day. We practiced the science and reading sections. We then reviewed a practice test. The student is very receptive and should see large improvements in his score from his first test."
