Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Both students were each able to complete a practice test during the two weeks between our sessions. They both did well on the test given what their goals are, which was excellent to see. As expected, math and science will be the sections they need the most review. I want to go over a science section with the two of them and discuss strategies for figuring out which parts of the passage contain the information asked for the questions. I also encouraged them to go through the sections by first reading the passage, then reading the questions, and then going back to passage to skim for information, which should help them in understanding what's being asked of them. Next week the boys have their first real assessment, so we planned to meet the weekend after. I assigned them practice math, science, and writing sections for our meeting in two weeks."
"Covered ACT reading and science sections. I am trying different strategies to help the student think critically about the questions and answers (e.g., thinking in positive vs negative terms or spotting red flags)."
"A review of strategies for each section. Practice assigned for before test. Possibility of extra lessons after the test when results come in."
