Session Summaries by ACT English Tutors

ACT English Tutoring review by Harriet in Rockville, MD
Today we went over the experiment passages on the Science section. The strategy for these is to read the experiments, visualize what is happening, and then answer the questions. I modeled the approach to these passages, then had her talk through one with me. After that she did more passages on her own, with a debrief afterward about each question. These passages are harder for her than the data passages, and so she will use the time she gains from those to spend on the experiment passages. Of the 17 questions that were a part of the passages today, she got 10 of them correct. This is in line for a better score than her goal, so it was a success.

ACT English Tutoring review by Andy in Rockville, MD
Despite her self-assessment of having weak reading skills, the student did very well in our guided tutorial for approaching Reading passages effectively. She should have plenty of time to practice the right approach to Reading questions and arrive at the right answers. From our brief review, it appears she can do very well in the Science section. I've assigned homework in both sections, and I look forward to seeing her results. I've also assigned some math packets for review.

ACT English Tutoring review by Noah in Rockville, MD
For homework, he had done some problems from the prep book he did. We reviewed about half of them, but they were far easier than the real test. We then switched over and did real problems in the Reading, Math, and Science sections. His other prep book just arrived, so I gave him homework from that.

ACT English Tutoring review by Kevin in Rockville, MD
Today the student and I went through another practice ACT English section. She did a wonderful job. Speed was fine, accuracy was solid, and there were no clear weak spots to address as we worked. I interspersed some grammar review into the section (who/whom and semicolon practice, mainly). She did well with that, too! I'll be there at the same time next week. Thanks!

ACT English Tutoring review by Josh in Rockville, MD
We talked about the science section of the ACT and went over some science practice drills the student had done. She realized that on one section, she had overlooked a key table of data, causing her to miss the majority of the questions in the section. We also spent time talking about the writing section of the ACT, specifically going over the format and content of the writing prompt and the basic approach she should take for the essay. She said she was going to do some writing practice this week.

ACT English Tutoring review by Zachary in Rockville, MD
The student and I started the night with a timed reading; his reading speed at comprehension level continues to improve, reaching 239 wpm tonight. He then took an English ACT practice test and got a 23, a big improvement over his scores so far. We went through the test together, and determined that one big struggle is in verb tense matching, typically confusing the past and present tense of a verb inside the same sentence. We drilled on matching tenses as we went through the test. Pleasingly, he seems to be proficient in identifying problems in sentence choice or structure, so the 2-3 questions at the end of each passage dealing with the passage as a whole are less of a problem than predicted. Now, time management becomes the big thing to practice. For homework, he will continue his timed readings as well as taking his first Science subtest using the guided test on the website. We will go over results on Tuesday.
