Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over a math practice session and I gave the student more practice problem sets to go over before our next session."
"The student and I focused on math and science for our session. She did well on math, but had a bit of trouble on one of the science passages. Still, she definitely improved from the first math section we completed together. She will continue preparing for the ACT test this weekend."
"This was the last session with this student, as she is taking the ACT on Saturday. We started by reviewing the reading passage she completed for extra practice. She was able to complete it in under 9 minutes and got 9/10 answers correct. Overall, her timing on the reading section has improved. Next we worked a bit on the science passages. We first reviewed the 2 passages she had completed for extra practice. She tends either to do really well on a science passage, or only get about 50% of the questions correct depending on the topic. We worked together through another passage, and then she completed 2 more passages timed. Overall, her timing has improved. She does well on the 5 and 6 question passages, but still has trouble with timing on the 7 question passages. I anticipate that she will be able to get to all the passages in this section. Lastly we worked on math. I walked her through 8 of the harder math problems, pointing out ways to plug in answers or eliminate possibilities. She then completed 12 of the easier math problems timed (under 10 minutes) to practice her speed. Overall, the student seems to be more confidant in, and comfortable with, the timing on the ACT."
