Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we focused on subject-verb agreement, verb consistency, and parallelism for the English section of the assessment. The student scored 14/15 on a set of questions on an English practice test, which demonstrated excellent progress, especially in the area of punctuation/comma rules. We also worked on pacing for the assessment Reading section. Her overall pacing on the Reading is improving; she answered all of the questions on a practice test within 34 minutes and scored well. This score was also a notable improvement over the last reading section she completed. We will need to review strategies for approaching these question types. For extra practice this week, I asked the student to finish an English practice test."
"Today we completed practice problems for the math, English, and science sections. No concerns to report. The student seems to be making strong progress. I left extra English and math practice."
"We completed three English passages, ten math problems, and two reading passages. The student did really well for her first session since taking the test. HW is to finish the last three questions of the last reading passage."
"Great first session with the student! We did some basic review and practice problems for the math section. For the science section, we went over analyzing tables and strategies for the dueling scientists passages."
"Reviewed practice questions for the English section in addition to working on word problems in Math. The student specifically needs to keep working on the English problems that involve punctuation and sentence correction."
"The student and I ran another abridged ACT. He did much better on this one, keeping his English, Math, and Reading scores on par with his past performances, and boosting his Science."
"We did practice tests, run-throughs, and specifically addressed the 'how to understand science' and 'what to look for in the reading section' concepts. Overall, I definitely felt it was a productive, useful session."
"We worked mostly on Geometry for the math section. He improved a lot, and I think he has the potential to do very well with a bit of a refresher course in math. We will be continuing with some other math concepts on Saturday."
"The student and I went over some questions he had on an English section. We also completed a math section together. We decided that reading sections should be done on his own in order to save time so he'll do that section for next time."
"The student and I talked about the ACT in general, his past performance, and then started working on math problems with a focus on moving more quickly through the questions while not losing any understanding of what is being asked."
"We covered a section of ACT Mathematics. Progress went well and we experimented with different ways to tackle the math portion. As the test date is approaching, the student should do more practice tests in the coming days. No concerns at the moment."
"Today we covered the English, Reading and Writing sections of the ACT. We went through practice exams and corrected incorrect answers. We also worked on essay construction and editing for the Essay portion."
