Session Summaries by ACT English Tutors

ACT English Tutoring review by Doron in Portland, OR
The student and I continued our work with the English section of the ACT, with a little work on the math. We reviewed the English diagnostic exam. We also went over the various classes of pronouns, restrictive vs. non-restrictive information, and issues relating to parallelism. As for the math, I watched the student complete the first fifteen questions in roughly 7 minutes. For our next session, he will attempt to complete as many of the English ACT sections as he can.

ACT English Tutoring review by Jessica in Portland, OR
Today we reviewed Reading for the ACT and learned what order the student should approach these passages: 1) Natural Science, 2) Prose Fiction, 3) Humanities, and 4) Social Science. She has improved overall in Reading and approaching the material in this order should only improve her percentage of correct answers, as well as her time management. I have asked her to complete a full ACT in one sitting, complete at least two reading sections from ACT exams, and complete the practice sets that I am sending her way. .

ACT English Tutoring review by Hannah in Portland, OR
This session we focused on one math section she had done on her own. She scored herself and we went through the ones she got incorrect. She is improving on some test strategies and some topics like geometry, but still has difficulty with others like factoring. I am assigning her more homework so that she can become more comfortable with working through things like factoring. We outlined our next four sessions before the April test, and are still waiting to hear about the March test scores. She will be practicing math on her own before our next section Monday, when we will tackle a science section.

ACT English Tutoring review by James in Portland, OR
The session went well--we covered general strategies for the test (i.e.. time-saving strategies) and went over several passages. We focused primarily on English and reading because the student has been excelling in math and science. She does well on reading questions when she searches for textual support in the passages, so I encouraged her to always keep this in mind.

ACT English Tutoring review by Jack in Portland, OR
In our session yesterday, the student completed a timed run of the ACT English practice test. She scored well, and we spent the remainder of the session going through wrong answers to see where she tripped up. We also spoke briefly about some strategies for pacing on the English test, as well as strategies for approaching certain question formats.

ACT English Tutoring review by Vamsi in Portland, OR
We went over her US history project due tomorrow. It mainly covered WWII and the Cold War. The student had to create a map of the Western and Eastern Blocs (Nato/Warsaw Pact), the neutral countries, and delineate the Iron Curtain. There were also opinion questions that needed to be answered using several quotes and sources.
