ACT Math Tutoring review by Mimi in Chester County, PA
The student and I worked on the English and math sections today. Her biggest struggle in the English section is comma rules and answering the questions that refer back to the whole passages. We reviewed comma rules today but I definitely want to continue to test her on these topics so she has them down for the test. She is a strong math student but missed one question because she was rushing and didn't reread what the question was asking--a great lesson to learn from. Nice job today!

ACT Math Tutoring review by Joseph in Chester County, PA
We started off going over some reading and English questions that the student had worked on over the week, before diving into some science passages. We also talked about some basic math concepts to look out for on the test. Much like with the reading section, she needs to just take a little more time to make sure she's really comprehending what it is she is reading. She is great to work with though, and always ready to dive right in and work hard. We talked a lot about working around what she doesn't know in the science section, and pulling all her answers from the passage. She definitely seems strong on the math section, but we talked a lot about formulas she didn't know and should watch out for. I left her with some problems to work on until our next session, and we'll continue building speed with her reading comp. Overall, great work today!

ACT Math Tutoring review by Ken in Chester County, PA
The student and I worked through two ACT English passages, three Science passages, several math questions, and a reading passage. She improved slightly with both pace and accuracy on the her English and Science sub tests and continued to perform test very highly through the Reading section. She was engaged all afternoon and seemed interested not only in doing well on the ACT, but also in understanding the concepts covered as well as possible for her own benefit. She struggled most with advanced math and some English concepts, but her overall work is impressive.

ACT Math Tutoring review by Kristyn in Chester County, PA
The student did well with her extra practice work this week. In math, she worked through 15 math problems. She had some trouble with arithmetic sequences (terms and sum). We reviewed some geometric areas (parallelogram, trapezoid, circle), perfect square numbers, and math vocab (rational, real, imaginary, integer, etc.). For reading, she worked through 2 more difficult reading passages. Both passages were timed (8:45) and she was able to answer 8 of the questions per passage. She did better on accuracy with the prose passage than the social science passage. With the social science passage, she struggled most with content. She had difficulty understanding and analyzing the passage itself. After we discussed the passage, she was able to self correct 4 out of the 6 skipped or missed questions. With the prose passage, she struggled with lingering over specific questions. She is a fast reader, but can get unintentionally stuck on one question. In English, the student and I worked through 2 English passages. She does well overall on English. We reviewed a couple of cases where commas are not needed (b/t subject and verb, b/t preposition and rest of phrase, etc.). The questions that give Madison the most trouble are ones that ask about deletions or additions and why. We talked about how it is necessary to read all the answers to check that she is choosing the one that makes the most sense relative to the passage. For extra practice this week, she has 2 science passages, 1 English passage, 10 math problems, and 2 reading passages.

ACT Math Tutoring review by Rachel in Chester County, PA
Today was my first session with the student. She is a very bright young woman, who was able to concentrate throughout the lesson. She picked up on the concepts we were covering quite well. We began by discussing her goals for her upcoming test, as well as her previous experience taking the ACT. She felt that she gets a bit "rushed" in the science, math, and (occasionally) reading sections. She has not, however, run out of time while taking the test (she's always managed to complete each section). The highest composite score she has received is a 31. She said has set a goal of 34-35 for the upcoming test. She wants to work on the following sections in this order (the highest scores from previous tests are in parenthesis next to each section): Science (29) Math (30) Reading (32) Essay (10) English (35) She is hoping to get into a BSMD program, and has found that the average student admitted to these programs scores a 34-35 on the ACT. She currently has an unweighted GPA of 4.0, participates in a variety of extracurricular activities, and volunteers at hospitals on a regular basis. She is also taking 6 AP courses this year. She is incredibly driven, and wants to do her absolute best on the upcoming exams. She is hoping to raise her scores in every section - with the possible exceptions of the essay and English. We reviewed basic test taking skills and strategies, and discussed things she should do to prepare for the test (in the coming month, the night before, and the day of the test). I had her earmark the page that includes the list of what to lay out the night before the test (ID, pencils, watch, fresh batteries for her calculator, etc.), and asked her to add "water" and "snack" to that list. After ensuring that she felt comfortable with the background and test taking basics (pages 1-30), we moved directly to the Science section of the book. We covered pages 302-354. She did the "Basic Approach"ù drills 1-3 while we were working together today. Her scores were: Drill 1 (page 341) 5/5 Drill 2 3/5 Drill 3 4/5 We reviewed the questions she answered incorrectly, and made sure she understood how to find the correct answer. On two questions she looked for the information in the wrong section of the reading. I think that this may be part of what is lowering her score. After discussing ways to ensure that she is looking at the correct information (underlining, circling, marking graphs and charts, etc.) we moved on to the "fighting scientists"ù section of the book. For this part of the test, it is important to identify which scientist/theory will be approached first, and to answer all of the questions for that scientist/theory before moving on to the next one. This allows the student to focus on one thesis/hypothesis at a time, decreasing the number of questions answered incorrectly based on confusion. Her scores were: Drill 1 (in her book) 4/5 Drill 2 3/3 Drill 3 4/4 I would like her to spend more time with the material, as I believe that the more she practices the more comfortable she will become. She says that she tends to get nervous when she goes in to take the exam, and that her practice scores are always better than the actual test scores. We discussed ways in which the science test is set up to confuse test takers, and the fact that a good portion of the math section is based on classes she hasn't taken for several years. I think that the more we work together, the more we will find that she is making things harder than they need to be. Hopefully, as we continue to work through the material, she will see that she is completely capable of achieving her goals with this test and merely needs to relax and trust herself a bit more than she has been.

ACT Math Tutoring review by Karly in Chester County, PA
We continued to work with reading, science, and English. With reading, we worked on reading comprehension and getting the main ideas of the passage before even starting to answer questions. Science went pretty well.
