Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

The student and I reviewed the math section I had assigned for homework, which she did very well on. She seems to have a pretty good understanding of most of the concepts, so she's really going to have to focus on avoiding making silly mistakes to maximize her score. We also worked through the remainder of the science section we started the last session and completed one reading and one English section for practice before beginning the math section of practice test 5.

On Wednesday we began looking over the science section of the ACT. She sometimes has trouble reading/interpreting data and determining which data to use and which is extra/unnecessary. We also looked over the writing section which I am confident that she will do extremely well on. I plan to have her focus on the math/science sections as the test nears.

The student's ACT English practice scores are improving. On his most recent practice section, he scored a 29, and most of his errors stemmed from reading interpretation, which relates back to his struggles with the Reading test. For next time, though, I have asked him to do a practice Writing prompt.

Worked with the student regarding questions on the practice ACT, especially in math. Covered rules for verbs, pronouns, and punctuation in English. Covered graphs in science, and reading short passages.

The student and I worked on science, reading, and grammar sections. She was proficient in the grammar section, although she seemed to have some difficulty with subject verb agreement. After reviewing, however, she realized how she can avoid those mistakes. We focused primarily on how she can best break down reading comprehension sections. By going sentence by sentence, we were able to untangle some pretty difficult passages and be confident in our answers.

We went over the writing and reading sections that the student completed this week, and also talked through various strategies to help her get more information from reading the passage the first time around. We also outlined a sample writing section.

The student ran through an English practice exam and scored a 31(65/75) a 1 pt increase from his diagnostic. Then we started a practice math test with a timing exercise which we will finish next week.

We finished going through the Math ACT test that she finished up this weekend. Most of these she had not fully answered, but a good portion of them were geometry concepts that she'll learn in the coming year. On Thursday we'll finish going through the rest of the tests she finished up.

The student and I worked for the majority of our time on math and about 30 min on writing. She is beginning to see ways to improve her working in changing how she approaches her problems. Hopefully over the next few months we can hone her skills and get her to the score she wants but is making great progress.

In our session today, the student and I thoroughly went through the writing section the ACT. We talked about the general "formula" of the essay, and I showed her specific examples of how going above and beyond the generic layout can be rewarded with a score of 5 or 6. Next session we will review essays that she has written using this information. After the writing crash course we went through each section and did practice problems. The student has difficulties in the English section, but does very well in Science. I explained to her that the biggest advantage for English is seeing a lot of the questions in order to get a feel for the different types of things they ask about.

Today the student and I set up a plan for the Writing portion of the ACT. She practiced outlining a few essay responses and writing and editing a practice essay. We also went over her practice test. She improved five points in English since her last practice test! Wow!

We started by covering her essay which had been sent to me and reviewed the night before. I had given her feedback, but wanted to emphasize certain parts and cover in more detail. We then continued into the science section, continuing with the ideas we had discussed before. We went through two different sections, once again emphasizing connecting the questions back to the given information and addressing everything in logical steps. We then continued into math, going through some trigonometry and combination problems and addressing the idea of choices (in equation form) and their applications to permutations and combinations. Finally, we went into one reading section, going through the passage and then addressing questions about it.
