Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I finished up practice test II together. We calculated rough scores for his reading and writing performances on this last practice test. Both were in the mid 600's which was a great relief and confidence boost for him. Writing is a similar situation to reading. We pick up on a few new concepts each test (today was "not only...but also" and word choice in "identifying the error"). We started talking about the essay, but I said we'd come back to it next week so I could provide more exercises. We completed a reading section and I left him with an essay to write and one reading and one writing section."
"The student and I created sample introductions for the ACT Writing exam. I modeled brainstorming techniques for him. Additionally, we discussed strategies for answering nonfiction questions as well as continued our study of Latin roots."
"During this session we went over organic chemistry and groups in periodic table. The student didn't have any prior organic chemistry knowledge. I left him with practice problems on group elements."
