"The student and I went through another English section together. He has a very good understanding of comma usage, verb tense and agreement, but was a little unclear about some idiom questions. We also went over parallelism, modifier placement and organization. He should be able to get at least 30 on the ACT test. He is going to take some practice sections before our next meeting."
"The student is most concerned with math heading into the SAT this Saturday, so we spent this session reviewing problems she struggled with in her practice sessions. She had some difficulty with the more abstract problems, such as geometry word problems without accompanying diagrams. We reviewed her strategies for the test and each section, and went over some of the basic math formulas she will need."
