Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered general test-taking strategies, then worked more specifically on each section. We went over the English and reading sections in depth, and touched on the math and science sections more briefly since the student seems more comfortable with those. I assigned the homework of reading and summarizing the passages in the ACT prep book, with the goal of helping him read for content more effectively and gain confidence with that type of material. We finished by looking at the essay prompt from the first practice test in the book, and talking about ways to break down the best way to respond to the prompt in a short amount of time. In the next session, along with checking over the homework, we will go over his practice test and address any concerns or questions that arise from that."
"Tonight, the students and I wrapped up our admissions test math review and went over the reading and science sections as well. For next week, I have asked the boys to each complete a full practice test."
"Met with the student for the first time. We went over general information about the admissions test, and began working on English and math, refreshing some forgotten material."
