Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Since the student and I have covered all of the sections of the ACT at least once, today we practiced making the type of mental jump that she will have to make in the ACT by doing English problems and then math problems. We also covered some of the grammar rules she struggled with during the first English practice so she would know the grammar rule in future tests. I was excited to see that she made improvements on the English practice test this time around. I gave her a practice test to do between now and next week."
"We reviewed the practice test she took over the week in the science and math sections. I noticed that she was struggling with timing on the science section. So, we will spend the next few sessions working on increasing her speed.. However, her accuracy is on par. We also reviewed concepts in algebra, trigonometry, geometry, and arithmetic. Math is her strongest subject, so we will aim to get a 30+ on the next practice test in that section. Overall it was a good session."
" In preparation for this session, student completed the final two sections of a second practice test. She scored a 22 on both math and science, which were in the 62nd and 64th percentile respectively. Combined with her English and reading scores from the last session, she earned a composite score of 23, which is in the 69th percentile."
"Today the student and I continued working through practice tests, focusing on math and English. He's already demonstrating improvement in the two subjects and I expect that, moving forward, most of his improvement will be here. For homework I assigned him another practice test, making sure that he times himself in reading and science particularly."
"Today the student and I covered the Math section of the ACT. First, we reviewed some time management and test taking strategies. Then we moved on to some individual problems. After this we did a full practice test and reviewed some of her incorrect answers."
"Today the student and I discussed all the sections of the ACT, performing diagnostics for each. He performed very well on the science and English sections, scoring in the 30s. His performances on the reading and math sections were in the mid 20s, but after brief discussion he seemed to grasp all of the correct answers. It was apparent after the diagnostics that he would benefit from slowing down and taking more care with each question. I've left him with a study schedule, and I'm confident that with timed practice his time management will improve. We also discussed a good deal of content, specifically for the math and English sections. We will continue to develop his background knowledge to help him get the best score he's capable of."
