Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on all four sections. She's really coming along, especially in her essay writing. We've highlighted a few things to practice, but her foundation is solid. Well done!"
"The student had completed a practice ACT English section before our session, and she only missed 6 out of 72 questions. It didn't take us very long to go over those, because she's really very good at grammar. During our session, she did a 19-question ACT math drill and only had qualms about a couple of the answers. We went over those and then moved on to science. It seems that she is a very good student and can answer almost all the questions on the ACT, but I'm not sure she's had much practice taking the ACT in timed environments. I'd like to see how she's doing in terms of time management, which I would only know if she were to do a full-length practice test. (Although she's taken one before at her school, she doesn't seem to have the scores from that one.) She's so close to getting a perfect score on the test that the best way to raise her grade at this point is to just keep having her take practice tests and then going over the answers. I asked her to take a full-length (timed) practice test before she meets with me next time, and she said she would."
"We went over reading and English strategies. We discussed grammar techniques and worked on reading speed and comprehension."
