Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over the questions that the student missed on each of the sections on the first practice test. We discussed writing out the main idea of the passage/paragraph for all the passages. We also discussed general strategies for the writing section, such as specific areas of sources to draw examples from. For next week, I asked the student to complete the next practice test, and to finish any reading questions."
"We spent most of today's session on the English section of the ACT but did about 30 minutes at the end with math. For the English, he worked through one whole test and did quite well on this one, significantly better than at first. The estimated score from this section was 29-30, which is 4-5 points better than the last time he took the test. For math, he told me that they just started learning Trigonometry in school today, so he'll get lots of practice in that for the next couple of weeks. For practice, I asked him to do two passages from the writing section and identify the parts of each sentence. Also, I asked him to do one of the essays so I can have a sample of his writing to work from."
"Worked with the student on the ACT. She performed extremely well in the practice English and Math homework. Reading and Science did not go over as well for homework. Worked on more Distractions that test writers create for Reading. Also went over 4 examples of graphs and charts in Science. Worked on the complete and concise sections in English and the utilizing the answer section in Math."
