Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today was my first session with the student. We went over the English section of the assessment. We developed a strategy to help him systematically approach this section- read the passage as it is provided and answer the questions as they come up. We reviewed some grammar and punctuation rules, namely using the vertical line test to decide whether stop punctuation or a comma may be needed to link two ideas together. We also went over verb and pronoun errors, use of colons and semicolons, and modifier placement. I am sending the student a practice test to complete as well as some grammar worksheets."
"We mainly covered test-taking strategies. Then we went over the grammar in ACT English sections and how to approach the passages in the Reading section. I also gave the student some vocab homework and will be quizzing her on it during the course of the week. Lastly, we went over a few math problems as well."
"Today the student and I worked mostly on the reading section on the assessment. We are going to work on strategies to better understand the passages and identify key points but he will need to work on his own as well."
