Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I met with the student on Thursday night to get started in earnest for the ACT. We did some good work with math and also the reading section. Planning to meet on Sunday."
"We reviewed a practice test that the student had done previously, as well as an essay. Most of our work should focus on test taking, rather than actual skills. Her essay showed remarkable improvement from her first, with well-developed ideas and good transitions."
"We went over the homework practice questions I assigned on Sunday. The student did well on most of them. It would be best for him to practice in a situation as similar to the actual test environment as possible. Today we went over more verbal sections and practiced with a variety of question types. He seems to be more confident than when we started last week, and I think he's becoming more familiar with the question types and strategies for solving them. I assigned a section of math practice problems for homework, which we will go over in detail on Sunday, as well as some vocabulary practice. Next session, we will focus mostly on math sections, with some vocab practice mixed in. I would like to do a practice test in our next to last session, then use the final session to go over the test and do any final problems he might have trouble with."
