Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over math practice tests and reviewed the topic of domains and algebraic fractions and functions. The student is doing better and grasping more material."
"As this was our first session, we spent the early part of the session talking about the test in general and some strategies for each section. After this, we went over some practice problems for the Math and English sections. With the Math problems we looked at some problems that had simple elements-- area of a shape, Pythagorean theorem, algebraic expressions with two variables, etc.-- that were set up in a convoluted way to see how the problems are actually pretty easy to solve once each element of the problem is identified. We looked at some strategies that help with sorting through it and identifying the necessary information and subsequent simpler parts of the problem. We ended the session by looking at some practice English problems and talked about grammar and usage for the most part and how to use the context and variations of the answer choices to figure out what is being tested and what must be satisfied for the correct answer."
"Worked with the student on all 4 sections of the ACT. She performed very well on the homework including 15/15 in the math. Covered Distraction 1 - inappropriately paraphrased answers - in Reading. Covered easier graphs and charts in Science. Reviewed punctuation including when to use commas, semicolons, and colons. Reviewed interpreting equations, inequalities, square roots, and exponent functions."
