ACT English Tutoring review by Lauren in San Jose, CA
The student and I worked on the English and math sections today. We spent time reviewing concepts and strategies for both areas (the use of commas, looking to the context for clues, how to approach unfamiliar math questions, etc.). He did a good job!

ACT English Tutoring review by Naftali in San Jose, CA
We went over the ACT Reading and Essay sections. Overall, the student showed great improvement in the reading section this time and worked on better organizing his ideas for his essays. He expressed concern about "choking up " during the test, so we will focus on stress-reducing test strategies during part of Wednesday's lesson.

ACT English Tutoring review by Michael in San Jose, CA
The student is doing great work! We essentially spent the first hour on Science and the second hour on English. On Science, we reviewed chemistry equations and methods of analyzing tables (look for similarities, and see what similarities correspond), among others. On English, we worked question-by-question, reviewing a number of concepts. Since he completed entire sections (between his homework and the work we did today), I was able to score him, as a sort of progress report; on English (31) and Science (28). For next time, he is going to write a practice essay.

ACT English Tutoring review by Sean in San Jose, CA
The student and I covered many things, from seeing patterns to reading with a clean slate, to really understanding the passage. He is very eager to learn. Strategies include reading strategies, as well as the fact that he is very smart, but in order to reach his potential, he needs to dedicate practice time. A real win for me was really seeing his strengths and weaknesses unfold, and seeing that he really has promise to do well on this exam.

ACT English Tutoring review by Alyssa in San Jose, CA
Tonight we went over the English section of the ACT, doing a good number of practice problems from both the online resources and then from a workbook that had the problems laid out in the same style the student will see on Saturday. I also went over some of the literary and historical figures that the test makers like to put on the Reading portion of the test as a way to help her orient herself in the time frame and beliefs of some of the authors that she might see appearing in that section of the test.

ACT English Tutoring review by Becky in San Jose, CA
We went over the "must-knows" for the Math section. If you can remember them, there is nothing you won't know how to solve on the math section! We also reviewed the Reading Section! The student would've scored a 28 on that section on the real ACT! He should remember to always ask himself what the question is asking. Thursday will be our last session! We will cover English and hit up a few last minute tips and tricks.
