Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we covered multiple passages in the English section and the math. We have also begun our work on the writing portion of the ACT. The student's English section work today was the best work I have ever seen her do. Proportionally, she scored a 28 on her English section entirely by herself! Her math work was more like her normal math work, but I have identified a new issue. She is getting to know her math rules from her flashcards very well, but her math has not improved much because she struggles to figure out which flashcards to use on which problem in the short amount of time allotted. This will take practice. I will continue to observe to see just how I can drill her to help her identify the necessary equation a little more accurately. Her writing, however, is phenomenal! She has a natural talent for expression, as well as a natural talent for identifying ways to improve her own writing before I can even say anything! I believe that when she takes the September ACT and includes the writing in it, it can only help her overall score - provided she can do it within the time limit. We will work on the time issue for certain, because I truly believe the writing portion will be a huge benefit for her!"
"Today we quickly reviewed SAT homework, then started to go over ACT material since the student may not be able to take the SAT."
"The student and I began reviewing for the ACT today. We covered English, Math and Science. She did a very good job!"
