Session Summaries by Test Prep Tutors

Matteson, IL Test Prep tutoring
The student and I covered the basics of the ACT; the topics covered in each section, timing, gridding, how the test is graded, and when to guess. She had taken the ACT once but without any preparation. She said that her biggest weaknesses were timing on the science and math section, so for our first session I covered test taking strategies for the science section. I went over how to skim details, how to passage map, and how to read graphs and charts quickly to skim for trends. She practiced these skills with two example passages and did very well. She is a strong reader and advanced student, so her only difficulty seems to be that she treats the ACT like an AP exam and tries to read too carefully and too slowly for details. We then went over how to tackle a particularly difficult passage using the answer choices to guess at the correct answer. I left her with a full science section to finish for homework.

We worked on some more grammar questions today, starting where we had left off during our last grammar session. She also brought the essay I had asked her to rewrite. It was a definite improvement compared to the original one. For the next time we meet, I will bring a copy of a webpage I found that lists the different verb tenses on it. It should help her understand the different ways and meanings a verb can take, which should mainly help her out in the essays that she writes. At one point during the session she asked about how the placement test works. I told her that it includes a section on science, as well as using the sections the other test has. Her homework is to write another essay, as well as to work on some more questions from her practice book.
