Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student and I went through the ACT math diagnostic test she had completed for me. We looked at several types of problems, especially geometry, which had tripped her up previously. I asked her to complete an ACT reading diagnostic for us for next time."
"We learned order of operations and absolute values. She understood absolute values right away, and after a some practice problems she was able to understand order of operations just as well. I taught her the acronym PEMDAS to help her remember the order of operations."
"Today, we started with reading. Prose is giving her a lot of trouble, as she prefers literal statements and has trouble parsing figurative language. She did significantly better on the other reading passages, so that will be our focus for the immediate future. We also brainstormed an essay, reinforcing a quick, formulaic approach to brainstorming."
