Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We practiced a few ACT math word problems to create equations. The student went through timed practice science test."
"Today we took and reviewed a practice math ACT. The student is very good at math and just needed a review of concepts from geometry and basic algebra skills."
"Today was a great first meeting with the student. We started by going over some information about her goals for the tutoring sessions and her college plans. After moving on to some ACT test strategies, we reviewed the science section of a previously taken practice test. She was a little disappointed with her score, but when we began to review the questions it was clear that most of the mistakes had been due to time issues, not knowledge issues. When we slowed down and picked apart the questions, she was able to arrive at the correct answer with very few problems. Toward the end of the session we talked about some strategies for the essay portion. Before our next session, I would like her to take a timed science section, focusing on some of the strategies we talked about today. I want her to get a feel for where she is time-wise, but I also want her to finish any questions remaining when time is up for the extra practice. She will also be working on some brainstorming for a couple essay prompts."
