Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This first session, the student and I worked on the ACT English section. We started off by going through a practice test section question-by-question to see where his strengths and weaknesses lie. We found that he struggled a lot with grammar and punctuation rules and is not familiar with proper sentence structure as tested on the ACT, but he picked up fairly quickly when they were explained to him. It did seem as if the concepts tested on ACT English were new to him. We found that the most effective approach for him was for him to attempt the question himself and then go over the grammar/writing rule tested by the particular question so that we could judge if he understood and retained it on the next similar question. He will need a lot of practice and motivation to learn in order to achieve his score goal, and it appears we are a good fit to move him in that direction."
"We spent a lot of time on reading and grammar strategies and also assessed the student's progress on learning her vocabulary words."
"The student continued to practice math test taking strategies. She is becoming increasingly confident at tackling geometry problems which have been challenging for her in the past"
