Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The session focused primarily on the math portion of the ACT, and the topic covered was planar figures in geometry. Overall, it was a productive session, as numerous practice problems were covered."
"We covered Law of Cosines and Sines. We also touched up briefly on the fundamental theorem of solving for theta. We also evaluated problems dealing with the sum and difference formulas of sine and cosine."
"We did a lot of reading today. First, we practiced ACT reading passages. We tried to get the timing down. This is going to take practice. It's going to be a balance of time spent reading the passages and time spent on the questions. We then shifted to science. I brought in 3 different science articles, and we analyzed those similar to how they would be analyzed on the ACT. With this, she should be more comfortable and more focused in reading the science passages/graphs. Next time we will focus a lot on math."
"We continued to go over the arithmetic review guide. I had designed a practice test covering the material, and we went through how to solve some of the problems she missed on the practice test. I designed another practice test for her after the session, and I attached an answer sheet for her to look over after she gives it a try. I wish the student the best of luck as she gives the arithmetic review guide another go tomorrow."
"We did a review of the final section of what the student will be tested on. We discussed how she should continue to study to review all the material and put concepts together. We will meet Friday for our last regularly scheduled session. Her confidence has grown tremendously, and she has gotten significantly better at talking through the material clearly and concisely."
"We worked on the student's fluids homework. We talked about three different problems. We spent particular time on the first one. We talked about how to use a mass balance to figure out an unsteady-state changing density problem. We solved a first-order ODE. Next time, we'll continue in more depth on the other two problems."
