Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"After mutual introductions, the student was able to identify the procedure used to maximize results on the ACT by practicing on the reading section: adhering to strict time limits for reading the passage (pacing not too fast to lose comprehension, but not too slow as to lose the time needed to read and answer the questions). He demonstrated this on two separate parts of the reading section, showing a 33% improvement section-over-section from practicing this technique. This develops his innate sense of timing so that he spends just the right amount of time to maximize his points on these sections. With practice, this will become ideal and will yield him the maximum results. Our future sessions will focus on how this is similar and how this is different as an approach to the other sections of the ACT. We will also make sure to supplement subject-matter knowledge to bridge any critical gaps along the way. I look forward to working with the student to get him to the score his 3.8 GPA deserves!"
"Worked with the student on common grammatical mistakes, pre-algebra and algebraic questions, science charts, and reading short passages. She has a very strong grasp of concepts in English."
"The student and I focused on geometry basics and did a lot of grammar work to prepare for the English section. We also discussed the writing section."
