Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on strategies for tackling long passages and also did some practice with grammar and usage errors that will appear on the exam."
"We reviewed the math sections assigned from last session and went through a good portion of the CR and writing practice problems."
"During the first part of this session, the student and I worked on practice questions from the ACT reading section under time constraints. He was able to finish the questions for each of the reading passages in 8 to 8.5 minutes - a good amount of time. He did well in answering questions about specific details from each passage. He can continue to improve on questions that require making inferences and choosing the best general characterization of a part of the text. During the second part of our session, he and I worked on science questions. He did a good job using the charts and graphs presented to answer most questions; however, he was unsure on some problems that relied on an understanding of terms like "molecular structure", "doped", and "osmotic pressure", and on how one might design another experiment to complement a described set of experiments. He should practice timing himself while taking a test for a complete ACT science section to get a better feel of how well he budgets his time."
