Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We met for the first time! The student seems pretty solid on the skills needed for the ACT. We worked through science strategies and reading strategies. She's going to work on some passages for homework. We also briefly touched on the English section. Good work!"
"During this session the student and I worked on some of the ACT science practice tests from the website. We worked specifically on paraphrasing the questions and answer choices to figure out what they were saying in the simplest terms. He made progress over the length of the session and we are going to work on skimming passages and pulling out the useful information. He will also need some work finding necessary information in the passages, in other words - returning to the passage to find what the question is asking for. We finished the session by working on a problem set I created that focused on trigonometry and two part problems - both subjects that he needed extra practice on. I left him with the rest of the problem set to finish or bring back next session."
"The student and I continued to work on ISEE prep. We focused on a new column of words from his workbook. He used the "Check mark, 1/2, and ?" system I've created for identifying known and unknown words. He knew about half the words from the workbook and didn't know or sort of knew the other half. Next, we worked on quantitative reasoning, which he really likes. We focused on geometric shapes and percentages and fractions."
