Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed all 4 subjects for the ACT. She has a very good understanding of the material and has gotten the most out of every session. I believe that she will raise her score and reach her goals."
"The students took an ACT English section as well as an ACT science section. On the English section, one student scored a 32 and the other student scored a 29. On the science section, they both scored a 26. They understand the material very well."
"The student did all his practice work again and did very well on the Math, Reading and Science sections. We spent the last part of the session on English, since we hadn't touched on that yet. He is solid on grammar and punctuation. We discussed and strategized a bit for rhetoric, which will hopefully aid him in getting several more English questions correct. He is going to take a full length practice test this week in preparation for the exam on Saturday."
"We covered an 8th Grade Lesson on the Pythagorean theorem. The student needs to work on previewing questions and summarizing/restating passages in her own words. We will continue to work on this in our next session. We also went over emotion/relationship adjectives."
"We covered analogies, reading comprehension, vocab, test-taking and essay-writing strategies. I think the student was struggling the most with vocabulary, but she is learning the words quickly. She had a great attitude and was very pleasant. I gave her a lot of extra practice: a quantitative section, to come up with two meaningful topics to write about for an essay, to enter vocab words with definitions into her flashcard program, and to read a section on essay writing. I have seen great improvement on how she is using test-taking strategies."
"We covered dependent clauses and verbs today. The student did very well with verbs, but had a little bit of trouble identifying the different kinds of dependent clauses, so we'll do more practice for those Wednesday, as well as chapter 18."
