Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over the practice reading and math passages. She focused on harder questions, and should continue to practice this way. We did some more practice with writing equations, and then did a practice English and science passage. She will keep doing practice passages."
"This session we finished going over a 60-problem practice math test. We covered lots of specific material-- extrapolating properties of three-dimensional figures from their two-dimensional counterparts, evaluating functions of x, logarithm rules, writing out an algebraic equation based on a scenario, proportionality, etc.-- while also emphasizing certain general strategies-- approaching a problem from the top-down, drawing diagrams, focusing on the key elements of the question, etc. Next session we will look at the science section."
"The student worked through several ACT sections, including a full English section under timed conditions, as well as several dozen math problems and part of a reading section. She continues to strengthen, but I would like to see her reason through problems a bit more rather than relying on brute force -- we'll dedicate more time to this in future sessions."
