Session Summaries by ACT Tutors

ACT Tutoring review by Rebecca in New York City, NY
The student and I covered math, reading, and science sections today. We also went through the method for writing the essay, emphasizing the structure and organization to carry him through the argument. (Intro, 3 body paragraphs, a counterexample, and a conclusion). He is very comfortable with the math and reading comprehension. Again, though, he needs to slow down and read through the entirety of the questions to ensure that he selects the answer that is completely right, not just the answer that seems right at face value. I assigned him a full practice test to be completed by next week.

ACT Tutoring review by Jaclyn in New York City, NY
The student improved on both the science and English sections he completed, so we spent most of the time on science problems and talking through some topics that come up frequently, since he doesn't seem to be too familiar with the material. I think he's close to really getting science, and completing a section without a time limit should help. Overall, I'm really happy with his progress and look forward to some breakthroughs in reading and math as well.

ACT Tutoring review by Andrew in New York City, NY
The student is weakest in advanced math and science, and since he's in Algebra 2, there are still some concepts present in the test that are still new to him. We worked on a basic trigonometry review as well as visualizing areas based on the three basic area formulas on the test. We also did an activity to reinforce a couple of useful test-taking strategies to use as "shortcuts" on the test. He seems to respond best to challenging problems, so I'm on the lookout for more of those. If he can complete difficult-level questions with a high level of success within the time frame, I expect him to do well and stay engaged on the lower difficulty questions as well.

ACT Tutoring review by Samantha in New York City, NY
The student and I worked on a variety of topics today. We discussed her reading homework, we talked about some of her problems in English, and we worked on math and science. The student is showing some major improvement in all areas, her reading is getting faster and more focused, she tends to do well on the first half of the math test and okay on the second half, and her science scores have shown improvement as well.

ACT Tutoring review by Bagmi in New York City, NY
We reviewed writing and grammar and outlined essays using some prompts. I encouraged the student to write for the viewpoint she could best support, not necessarily the one she believed in. We also practiced a sample science section from the ACT.

ACT Tutoring review by Ginger in New York City, NY
The student and I worked through 30 English grammar questions together. I reminded her of the rules for commas, semicolons, and colons, and we also discussed transitions. We then worked through about 15 math problems of various topics. She made flashcards for the distance/speed/time relation and the midpoint formula.
