Session Summaries by ACT Writing Tutors

ACT Writing Tutoring review by Maxwell in Georgetown, TX
For the last three sessions, we have been working through what has amounted to a full SAT prep test. The student has missed a total of less than 10 questions during this time. Granted, some answers he came upon from a hint or two from the old tutor over here, but with the slightest nudge, he is able to take over and answer basically every problem correctly. When he first told me that his goal was to score 2400 on the test, I was happy to see him setting such but understood that it would be difficult to actually achieve that score. After working with him this past month, a part of me would be sad for him if he didn't get the perfect score; if anyone deserves it, he most certainly does.

ACT Writing Tutoring review by Ben in Georgetown, TX
We split the session into vocabulary improvement and math practice. The student and I added a number of new words to his collection of flash cards, including "ubiquitous," "autonomous," "acquiesce," "conjecture," "ambiguous," and "nostalgia." He already had a strong grasp of certain words, like "prototype," which I sought to link to related ideas such as "antecedent," "obsolete," and "anachronism." I also encouraged him to identify words with similar roots as a means of guessing at the root's meaning. 'Conjecture', for instance, we realized that "-ject" related to words about (violent) motion, like "project," "eject," "reject," and "inject". Thus, we can use the idiom "throwing out an idea" as a mnemonic for "conjecture." Connor mentioned that he is a visual learner, so I plan to devise some drawings that he can use to conjure mental images for each word. He is excelling in math, adapting comfortably to translating word problems into equations. We left off on some rather tricky work involving rewriting a word problem as a multivariable expression, which I hope to continue today.

ACT Writing Tutoring review by Terry in Georgetown, TX
The student and I completed the last few math questions in the GED prep book and then commenced the math GED practice test. These questions provided a lot of practice with lines (slope calculations, graphing, distance formula, point-slope and y-intercept forms of equation, table of values). We also reviewed box and whisker plots, area and circumference of circles, and solving inequalities. The student appears to be getting all of this better; he says it is getting easier and making more sense. In our next session, we will add back in some of the other GED areas of practice as well.

ACT Writing Tutoring review by Walter in Georgetown, TX
We went over some of the questions on the critical reading, and I introduced the student to the ACT exam in case she finds it more amenable. She took the SAT and didn't have enough time.

ACT Writing Tutoring review by Mark in Georgetown, TX
Today, the student continued his work on the English practice test #2. During today's tutoring lesson, he completed 50 multiple-choice questions on his second practice test. Out of the 50 questions completed, he got 31 of the questions correct (62%). It should be noted that English is his second language, and although he speaks English very well, some of the English vocabulary is challenging for him. After he completed the multiple-choice questions for each story / poem / section, we reviewed the answers that he got wrong. After he completed his second English practice test, we moved on to study further strategies on how to write a good essay for the exam. During our last tutoring session, we reviewed how to write a persuasive essay. For that specific writing task, I gave him the prompt. Today, we reviewed practice writing task 3, supplied by the state: "Write a persuasive essay for your school paper in which you convince the readers of the importance of getting rid of the trash and making the school more attractive. Convince your readers through the use of specific reasons and examples." He and I brainstormed on what would be strong reasons / points to "convince the readers of the importance of getting rid of the trash and making the school more attractive." To conclude today's tutoring session, I had him read aloud a student-written response, to the above mentioned writing task 3 (supplied by the state), that scored a 3 (B). During our next, and final, tutoring session, I will give him his third English practice test. He is making good progress. During our tutoring lessons, he is always focused on the task at hand. Thus, all our tutoring sessions have been very productive.

ACT Writing Tutoring review by Katherine in Georgetown, TX
Today, I focused on the English and Reading sections of the ACT. I discussed some strategies for how to take the reading section. I asked the student to start studying some tone vocabulary words and work on reviewing some math basics. In comparison to her diagnostics test, she did much better on the grammar practice questions and seemed to understand the rules a lot better.
