Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we reviewed trigonometry, including functions and identities. We worked on several problems from online resources. We also began to work on a math practice test and reviewed pre-algebra, including least common multiples, least common denominators, and adding, dividing, and subtracting fractions. I left her with a practice math/science test to complete for next week."
"We started on the second round of reading practice and already saw an improvement of 4 points in the student's subscore. We also continued to work on the English section and covered how to solve percentages and how to backtrack based on a given percentage, in detail."
"The student took the ACT this past Saturday and said that he felt the most comfortable with English and Reading, and believes he needs a little work on Math and Science. We used this session to go over the practice test packet that he used in his prep class during the week before the exam. He came prepared with the questions that he did not know how to approach, and we worked through them. These were mostly problems that involved setting up equations based on word problems, solving an equation through factoring, creating and applying ratios and proportions, and solving for variables given a system of equations. There were also a few geometry problems such as finding the area of a parallelogram on a coordinate plane and finding the measure of supplementary angles."
