Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I had a much better session working on English than the earlier session on Monday. Our final session is tonight."
"The session went over math/reading questions from ACT prep books and discussed the various topics/strategies they entailed. Time was spent working on science and English as well."
"The student and I looked at the reading and science sections during this session. She had recently taken a practice ACT in school, so we started out by analyzing how that test went. We then focused on some specific strategies to help her improve her reading score, as this was the only score that she was disappointed by. Going forward, she will leave her most troublesome passages for the end. She will also try to annotate while she reads as a way to self-assess how well she understood the passage. We also talked about how to eliminate answer choices in questions that ask about the main idea by noticing if they are too broad or too narrow. We also spent part of the session looking at science. We did several practice passages, paying attention to how she can use some of the reading strategies we had just reinforced to improve her science score."
