Session Summaries by ACT English Tutors

ACT English Tutoring review by Sissi in Pleasanton, CA
In this tutoring session, the student focused on TOEFL writing, and vocabulary. First, she brainstormed on a TOEFL independent writing topic, and wrote down her three arguments. Then, she carefully read a sample TOEFL writing which got a full score. After highlighting new words, and noticing transitional words, she also analyzed the argument of this sample writing. In the vocabulary quiz, she got 15 out of 15 correct.

ACT English Tutoring review by Anna in Pleasanton, CA
We focused on SAT math - mostly strategy and filling in a couple of missing concepts. For next week, I asked the student to complete and correct the remainder of the practice test we started. She seems to have a more than solid grasp on the concepts tested, and I think she'll benefit most from working on strategy and gaining general familiarity and confidence with the test.

ACT English Tutoring review by Eddie in Pleasanton, CA
We began our second session with math. We went over difficult problems that tested understanding of exterior angles, ratios, slope, and interrelated concepts of geometry. We also went over a common SAT trick: multiplying two equations together instead of solving for variables individually (when possible). I noticed that the student seems to understand the math underlying some of the questions he was missing, so I stressed the importance of working at the right pace and answering questions carefully. We then turned to the reading section. In reviewing sentence-completion questions, I spoke about how almost every word of each sentence adds to the overall meaning and is thus consequential to the process of choosing the correct answer. We went over a way to approach long passages. In closing, we briefly reviewed the SAT essay.

ACT English Tutoring review by Jeanette in Pleasanton, CA
During our final tutoring session we went over general test prep for the ISEE. Also, we continued working through the math sections. Over the course of our sessions, we covered all 5 parts of the upper level ISEE- verbal, reading, quantitative reasoning, mathematics, and essay writing. I'm confident that the student will score high marks on the test! Good luck on Saturday!

ACT English Tutoring review by Katherine in Pleasanton, CA
The student and I reviewed his SAT test breakdown. It seems as if he did considerably better on verbal sentence completion, but struggled with reading passages. In math, an overall review of basic concepts and strategies is needed. We planned weekly homework and which specific chapters he should review. He should focus on studying as much as he can - I think last time he was not as well prepared as he thought. However, he is a strong student and I think with practice he can raise his scores to where he would like them to be.

ACT English Tutoring review by Jennifer in Pleasanton, CA
The student did a practice test for me before this session and we graded the first half of it and discussed his errors. His math skills are strong and his reading is pretty good, but he struggles with vocabulary and analogies. I recommended to him and his mom that sometime next week (after he takes his first SSAT this Saturday) they take a look at the ISEE practice test in his test prep book; if his desired schools will accept the ISEE, that test seems to play to his current strengths somewhat more than the SSAT does.
