Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I finished up our studying today. We focused mainly on timing for the reading, English, and science tests. He did a very good job!!"
"During today's session, the student and I finished reviewing her responses from the English section of practice test 3. Then, we discussed any incorrect answers from the math problems she completed for homework. With the remaining time, she worked on more problems from the math section."
"We looked over the scores the student received on the ACT he took in the spring and discussed his overall testing experience. He felt unprepared for the Science and Reading sections at the time of the test and expressed interest in focusing on these areas during our sessions. We worked through 4 Science passages, and I noticed that he sometimes misinterprets the question. We worked on reading the question carefully and analyzing the charts/graphs carefully, making sure to pay attention to the units and labels. The second half of the session was dedicated to Reading, in which we worked through 2 passages. He seems to have a bit of trouble with the timing of the section, but is able to answer the questions correctly when given no time limit. We worked on strategies to shorten the time spent on the passage, such as reading only the topic sentences of each paragraph and only skimming the rest. This seemed to work better for him than reading through the entire passage thoroughly and I encouraged him to continue practicing this way."
