Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Went over all the subjects in the ACT. Covered transitions in Reading and English. Also covered Rhetoric skills in English. Reviewed Plane Geometry and Algebra problems in Math. Also went over 2 examples of passages in Science."
"Both students practiced their study skills by working on a few ACT problems. Last week I showed them some test taking tips and tricks. I asked them to implement them while taking a practice ACT exam. It's my hope that this will strengthen their comprehension and analytic skills. Both students performed well considering they are two years from taking the actual exam. However, they need to work on reading the question and answering it carefully. They understood the material but sometimes made simple mistakes (e.g. getting negative signs wrong). I want to continue using ACT exams to tone their test taking skills. Hopefully, they will apply what they learn during these sessions on their academic exams."
"For our first session, we went over the general structure of the test as well as things to be on the look out for in each section. We did some sample problems from English, Math, and Science and went over how to break down Reading passages effectively. For homework, he will take the first practice test from the book and send the answers to be graded. He will not take the writing section this time around, as we've elected to tackle that separately. Next session we will go over his practice test then dive into working on his specific areas of need."
