"The student and I had an online lesson in which we worked on the ACT English and Reading sections. He did well in the practice."
"Went over techniques for the science section, such as how to read the passage, interpret tables and graphs, and interpreting the scientist passages. We also went over practice problems and assigned flash cards for math."
"We specifically went through reading passages. We talked through the thought process out loud to help him learn what to focus on and how to think through the questions. At the end we went through one English passage for review."
"The student and I reviewed several sections of a practice SAT that he had completed. We then completed 2 additional math sections as well as a reading section. For homework, I assigned an additional practice exam."
"Today I scored a completed science section for the student. We also worked through a number of math problems that focused on basic algebra. He will complete several more full test sections for our final session."

"We continued doing practice problems from the ACT prep guide. The student is slowly improving. We still need some work on the latter 2/3 of the problems which are harder."
"The student and I spent our time reviewing each section of the ACT for his test this Saturday. It was a way to make sure he was comfortable with all the different sections that he has to take. We also briefly looked at how to graph logarithmic equations."
"We did practice problems for the Science and Math sections. The student is taking the ACT exam this Saturday, so we discussed last minute strategies. She will do one more practice test before exam day."
"Finished two more chapters of the Math Review section in the prep book, and halfway through a Writing section in a practice test. The student will take a practice test before next session to see progress."
"The student and I reviewed essay writing techniques, and dedicated lots of time to sentence completion (vocab) and mathematics. She is extremely proficient at the latter and needed very little help. We will focus on English in general."
