Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered basic SAT strategy and Sentence Completion strategy. The student did quite well with the pages in the packet that we covered, and she quickly utilized the strategies that I suggested she employ to improve her score."
"Please note: this was a simultaneous session with Student 1 and Student 2. Began by conferencing with Student 1's mother about objectives and schedule going forward. The girls will be taking the test in December. Agreed to spend this session addressing some areas for improvement previously observed, so that we can reconvene in a few months simply for review and clarification. Spent first half of session on guided practice with a sample ACT Math section to support Student 1's ability to identify problem types and apply the right solution strategies; the second half employed guided practice with Science to support Student 2's confidence and decisiveness in reading and analyzing relevant data. With some minor guidance from me, each student was able to work through the assigned sections accurately and without pauses that could take away from proper pacing. More review will be helpful before December (both to refresh the girls' memories and to re-evaluate how they perform on their own), but they have demonstrated at this point the ability to recognize and answer any given ACT question type. Will remain in contact with the families, with a view to resume tutoring later in the semester."
"We went over the essay and made sure the students could come up with the logical arguments needed. Then we just did some general review, followed by a math drill. Homework is to do practice test 5 out of the ACT practice book."
