Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I discussed her past ACT scores, her academic goals, and her areas to improve in for the next test. We began with math review since that was her lowest composite score."
"The student practiced 2 reading passages and math problems. He is completing a full practice test for Monday."
"Final tutoring session before the student takes the assessment. We focused on the three types of Science questions, how to approach each type, and we practiced one passage from each type. We then moved on to Math, and focused on how to approach the advanced Math questions - how to identify patterns - and a review of more advanced geometry problems."
"Today the student and I worked primarily on the math section of the ACT. We first went over the last English passage that I had assigned her for homework on Monday. She missed 5 out of the 15 questions, and two of them were just mental mistakes, so I feel that she did really well with this passage. We then spent the rest of the session working on the math section. She started off very well, and then encountered some struggles. I was able to explain where she went wrong, and she was quick to realize her mistakes."
"Today was the student's first session! I really enjoyed meeting her and working with her. We began with ACT Science, which she said was her weakest section. We did a practice test so I could get an understanding of where she's struggling, and it seems like time management is the biggest thing. She had a great understanding of the concepts in the science section and only missed a few questions that were pretty difficult. Looking forward to working with her more in the coming weeks."
"Today we began by reviewing the student's homework. She is doing very well, especially in the English and Science. She was prepared with a number of specific questions, so we were able to address those. After, we worked on some trig and geometry problems, particularly those involving right triangles and circles. One main strategy included was to look at a sin/cos/tan as a ratio, which can be used to find exact lengths even if the numbers in the sin/cos/tan don't line up exactly with the side lengths. We also went over the rules for arc lengths in relationship to the central angle or inscribed angle that encapsulates them. For next time, she has a similar assignment to complete."
