Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I spent the first half of the session working on some key math concepts for the ACT, mainly trigonometric functions (sine, cosine, tangent), and then we spent the second half practicing ACT English. He made a lot of progress on the English section just in the small amount of time we were practicing, going from getting 7 questions wrong on a passage to only getting 2 wrong. I'm excited to see him continue to progress as we move forward. For next week, I gave him an assignment which should only take a couple of hours- to read and complete three ACT reading passages off a diagnostic test online, timing himself to see how long it takes, and then to spend a half hour each on math and English practice questions. We will start with the science section next week."
"Worked with the student on the ACT. Went over graphing and coordinate geometry, techniques for reading, and opposing scientists passages. Also introduced the writing portion. She will complete it for homework."
"We started off our session going over the ACT reading passages that I had asked the student to work on and complete. Considering these were harder, she did pretty well with them and also finished them in the time allotted. After, we went over the outline that she prepared for a writing prompt. We went over tips and strategies in tackling these prompts and I believe she felt confident about this portion. We then went over a math review sheet that I had printed out for her, making sure she knew everything on it and highlighting certain math concepts that we would need to go over for our next session. When we meet again, I have asked her to complete another outline for a writing prompt, to do a whole reading section in 45 min, and a whole math section. I also plan on working on the English and science sections for that session as well, hoping to start doing whole practice ACT tests the following week."
