"Met with Student 1 and Student 2 today. Student 1 excels in certain sections of the ACT science, but struggles in others, so I'm trying to help him attain a level of consistency through practice. He will also build up speed by practicing, which he will need to complete the test within the time limits. He received a 20 on the English section in his prior ACT sitting, but in our sessions he does extremely well, so I suspect that the time constraint is the culprit once again. As for Student 2, she still lacks confidence and second-guesses herself, so I had her do some problems and asked her to answer quickly and instinctively. This was very unnatural for her in the math section, but proved much easier in the writing section. In fact, she had such a solid foundation that I didn't even have to review grammar rules with her. She got almost every question correct. Eventually, she'll get to a certain comfort level with the test and accept that some of the error identifications will be "E: No error.""
