Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, during our last session, the student and I mainly focused on the Math section of the test, which he had wanted to practice last before taking the ACT so it would still be fresh in his mind on test day. We worked through the last 45 questions of a practice Math test together, with him mostly working out questions on his own. At the end of the Math section, I compiled a short study sheet of key concepts for him to memorize and practice before the test on Saturday. I also briefly quizzed him on other math concepts to make sure there were no "blind spots" in his knowledge of useful formulas or equations. We also discussed time division on the Math test. I advised him not to think of the math test as allotting one minute for every problem, but rather he should try to work through easier problems in less than a minute so as to leave more time for himself towards the end of the test. Overall, he said he felt much more confident about the test after having studied with me; he said he now felt prepared for the kinds of questions he would see, and armed with strategies for approaching those questions. I predict he will see a substantial improvement on his ACT score this time around, commensurate with the amount of effort and study he has put into preparing for the test in our sessions."
"We went over some math and science practice tests. The student was scoring higher, and he felt pretty confident for his test tomorrow."
"We covered ACT English and math. I will send the student more tests to work on for our session tomorrow afternoon (math and science)."
