Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Continued SAT prep with the student. We used her new textbook to finish up arithmetic material not covered previously, then started algebra. She completed a number of arithmetic drills, including distributive property, etc. At the end of the lesson I introduced her to the math practice website that I have access to from my previous school, and recommended she complete a number of the exercises related to the specific topics covered."
"Today, the student and I worked on the Science section of the ACT and went through every problem on her practice test. Most of the questions involved interpreting numbers and relationships on graphs and charts. She seemed confident and undaunted, answering several questions correctly that she had missed on her practice test. The things we focused more on were questions that involved drawing hypotheses and synthesizing information. We also spent some time going over how to interpret conflicting viewpoints. Now that we have had three sessions, she is going to take another practice test next week for us to continue working on during our next session. I hope to see a large improvement in the Reading section as well as significant improvements in Math and Science. We have not yet devoted time specifically to English because she was the most confident with that, but we will focus in on her strengths and weaknesses in that section after this next practice test."
"We discussed the student's ACT test taking experience and struggles thus far. We'll work on quickly reading/skimming text and finishing answering the questions in the allotted time."
