Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has demonstrated a lot of improvement in the last few sections. Her performance on the reading is without trouble. We spent a good bit of time working on math. Furthermore, we worked a lot on geometry particularly 2d and 3d shapes."
"Today we focused on the English section, discussing the use of commas and semi-colons, run-on sentences, transition words, and techniques for writing the essay. We also reviewed the math section, covering fractions and problems involving tables among other topics. We spent about 10-15 minutes on the science section, drilling 2 problem sets. No concerns to report."
"This session went really well. We worked on the math portion of assessment. I provided the student with a plethora of segmented practice tests; he completed each one within the time limit and he seemed to understand/correctly answer most of the questions."
"The student completed a Math test. She seems to be gaining understanding in this area. Next session, we will go over the formula for the circumference of a circle, or mean vs. median."
"The student completed the full length practice exam I assigned for homework. She did better on this English section. Today we worked on going over the entire English section. For homework, I assigned a couple English passages to correct on her own."
"The student's session went very well today. We spent the majority of the time covering math, going over geometry, algebra II, and critical thinking skills. We graded her previous assignments -- on the math, reading, and science sections. Her continual understanding for asking the right questions will help me better target specific areas we can hone in on during the coming weeks. For an assignment, I gave her 20 additional math problems, two science sections, and two reading passages."
"Today the student and I worked on the English portion of the assessment. We also worked on some Math at the end of the session, and we will continue that Math section on Wednesday."
"We spent about 45 minutes going over practice math problems, an hour or so on practice science questions and the end of the session going over a practice writing prompt and discussing approaches to this section. The student is doing extremely well with the science questions, often getting all of the correct and her speed with the math is constantly improving. Her homework is to take a timed practice science test and write a practice essay."
"We did a final review and study plan detailing how the student should prepare over the next few weeks. This will include multiple practice tests and reviewing certain parts of each section."
"In this session, we covered English, Math, and Writing. The session began with us going over the student's homework. She did well on the English from the Practice Test I assigned her. From there, we moved to math -- focusing first on geometry problems I had prepared. We finished the session with working on how to build a short outline for the writing section."
"We began our first session by covering the ACT Math portion. We discussed test-taking skills. As this was our first session, I didn't see any scores to indicate improvement."
"We covered the ACT Science test and focused on the conflicting viewpoints and experimental design portions. The student seems very comfortable with the critical reading type questions. Next session, we'll go through his diagnostic test and start math."
