Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

I was happy to hear that the student got a higher score by 10% on his last test!  :D  Yay!     He is still needing to do the restaurant assignment, and he has been assigned a report to do on Spain (Very minor- only 70 points).  We worked on reflexive verbs and took notes that he brought home with him.       Hope you had a great 4th of July!

Congruence properties of right triangles, mostly covering the hypotenuse-leg theorem. Reviewing how to do two column and flow proofs. Then went over his test.  Most of the points  he lost  were  because he was not specific enough in terms of which postulate needed to be used in which scenario.

We went over the sections the student completed for homework.  We went over reading, English, and science passages.  He would tell me what he believes was the correct answer and why.  We also discussed increasing the amount of homework that he does per night as well as whether or not to take the writing section on test day.  For next time, he is going to work on completing 3 sections/night and one writing sample.  Next time, we will discuss when he should take his next full-length practice test.  

Covered correlation and linear regression and its application. Grades are improving. Went over homework for this week and looked at next week.

We covered his English assignment. We went over his paper/assignment, and helped him analyze the prompt and develop his ideas for the response. He started on the right path in formulating his points.

We did multi-step word problems, some of which he got on his first try, but some needed some explaining. After a little more thought, he usually understands the problem and can answer it. He had a homework problem involving percentage, a topic with which he wasn't familiar. But he understood the problem after I provided an explanation.

We reviewed the process I taught the student last week for factoring trinomials, and then did some practice on all of the different factoring techniques and shortcuts she knows. Her teacher doesn't announce test days, but I was suspicious one is coming up, so I think the review will be helpful.

Today's session included extensive review of the student's English paper. He made excellent progress obtaining and incorporating resources into his paper. He had worked on his annotated bibliography and note cards before I had arrived. He has been assigned math problems in anticipation of an upcoming test and directed to continue to work on his paper, due next week. I will ask his parents to invest in a set of SAT flashcards to expand the student's vocabulary.

We went over all of her notes for her upcoming biology test. She reviewed the concepts and talked about them so she could better understand them, as well as remember the facts and concepts during the exam.

We practiced some of the conditional tense. We also covered a fair amount of vocabulary and practiced lots of conversation. The student struggles some with reflexive verbs for all subjects. We practiced some of these throughout the conversation.

The student and I worked through some of the tests that he took. I continue to be impressed with his work and his critical thinking abilities. There are a few places where he needs to focus his improvement. He should start to think at a more macro level in order to be able to answer questions about how things are functioning in arguments.

She is finishing senior year strong. She worked through an assignment on her own at school and was able to complete the assignment we worked on with minimal help. One issue she has is with entering long fractions into her calculator, so we talked about where to use parentheses.

How can a Varsity Tutors tutor help you master the ACT?

We offer intensive 4 and 6 week ACT programs, as well as customized plans, to give you the "Varsity Boost" on your ACT score, significantly increasing your chances of admission to your first-choice colleges.

More and more high school juniors each year are turning to the ACT. The ACT is notable for judging not just reasoning but a student’s knowledge in four core subjects (English, mathematics, reading, and science), with an optional writing section. Each subject is scored on a 1–36 scale, and the total score is an average of each section. The ACT requires a student to demonstrate both knowledge in specific subjects and reasoning abilities. This blend of a broad knowledge base and a specific format to the test makes studying for the ACT quite different than studying for other standardized tests. Private ACT tutoring can help you sort out the materials and structures of the exam, helping you reach your college goals.

A Varsity Tutors instructor works one-on-one with each student to create an individualized lesson plan.
