Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on all four sections of the test today. She did especially well in the reading and English areas!! Very good job!!"
"We reviewed math formulas, and then we split time between science and English sections. We used a strategy of picking out key words in the science section. For the section we worked through, this strategy held firm for four out of seven questions. We talked through time-saving strategies as well. He will complete two test sections in any area this week, timing himself. This will guide our work in the next few weeks so that he can pace himself appropriately in the ACT. Last, we worked on English. His English is much improved. He answers most punctuation questions correctly with no prompts. He answers subject-verb agreement questions correctly, but he sometimes needs a prompt for these. He is improving in comprehension-based questions as well. This week he summarized each paragraph in a few words as he read, which helped with the broad-view questions."
"The student and I met for another session of ACT tutoring. I made sure we focused on the areas she most needed work. We did a science practice where she was allowed to ask me for hints without me revealing the answer. We also did math practice with easy questions, but with only 40 seconds per question so that she can get better at budgeting her time. With these skills, I'm sure her scores will improve the next time she takes the test."
