Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered the ACT writing and reading sections. We went over basic strategies for improving an essay. We came up with a step-by-step process for the student to focus her thinking and answer questions with confidence. After establishing this method, she was able to correct every mistake she had made on the section."
"The student and I had our first ACT prep session. We covered some of the main principles and strategies for each section. She is generally stronger in reading and English, and he has done practice ACT English problems in class and in an ACT prep club. Once we covered the basics, we started with the science section. We worked through several passages utilizing strategies that I offered, and he seemed inspired by his efforts and liked the new strategies. We then worked through math problems together. The practice served as a refresher from algebra 1, and he generally understood how to approach the problems. I left him with a few passages in each section of the ACT to complete prior to our next session. I also asked that he write down feedback on strategies, time management, and challenging content."
"We continued our work on the ACT Math section. We reviewed the student's practice session that he did for homework, and worked through all the incorrect answers. We also discussed more general strategies for taking the Math section, such as reading more carefully to ensure that he's answering the question correctly, and substituting his own numbers for questions that don't provide specific values."
