Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We discussed her personal goals with respect to the ACT, with the student saying that she wanted to get a good score / do her best. Then I tried to get a baseline for what she understood about the test and whether she had done any preparation work so far. I explained the test to the student and her aunt, breaking down the individual sections."
"Today we covered basic Math and Science ACT concepts. Specifically algebra, tangents, arcs, geometry formulas, control groups, reading graphs, simplifying units, etc."
"Used this session to cover a variety of ACT sections, in the interest of shoring up knowledge and confidence in areas the student perceived as potential problems. Started by working through each Science passage type again, to see how prioritizing passages affected time and accuracy. He did well on each of the passage types, with very minimal prompting from me. For independent practice I asked him to try a timed section (or at least one each of the three passage types, time-adjusted) to test this. Took a brief detour to examine answers from the most recent PSAT. After some reinforcement practice with these, we went back to the ACT (Reading) with special attention paid to similar question types. Again observing a high rate of accuracy with minimal prompting and explanation needed, I asked him to take a timed Reading section to examine whether we needed to work on time management. Very productive meeting."
