ACT Math Tutoring review by Andy in San Mateo, CA
The student should be able to reach his target score tomorrow. We covered his Math, English, and Science homework. We discussed general test taking strategies of managing time and improving accuracy. I hope to hear from him with good news.

ACT Math Tutoring review by Ariel in San Mateo, CA
The student and I had a great session today! We spent our time talking about her December test and the practice test she took last week. Her mom mailed me her December results. I think she struggled with some test anxiety and rushing through questions during her exams. My main goals over the next few weeks are to make her feel comfortable about the test and help her to focus on her strategies rather than each individual question. I think it will help curb some of her anxiety. She forgets some of the math equations we talked about over the last few months, so I will be reinforcing them as we go along. I really do think her English and reading scores will see improvements by her next practice test. She knows this stuff and just needs to work on applying it during the test!

ACT Math Tutoring review by Andrea in San Mateo, CA
Today, the student and I finished the English section and started the Science section. He was struggling with some fractions and planet arrangements, so I think that I'll bring a worksheet for the fractions for next time. It would be great if he could finish the reading section for next time, and potentially start a new test, to see if what he's been learning has been helping. If not, I can find a new way to help with material. I can definitely see that he's trying his hardest, and really works to understand everything that I'm teaching.

ACT Math Tutoring review by Alyssa in San Mateo, CA
Today we went through examples of passages and questions from each passage type from the ACT Reading section. This helped us identify which passage types the student felt most comfortable with, which ones may be a bit harder, and her strengths in using the passages to answer the questions. This also served as her introduction to the kinds of things she will be expected to answer on that section and to the kinds of things she should look for when she goes to read the passages.

ACT Math Tutoring review by Marissa in San Mateo, CA
The student completed two sections of the English portion of the exam today, and we reviewed the rationale for each of his answers. He has definitely shown improvement. He does best when reading aloud, as he is naturally very good at knowing when to pause in long sentences. He is also doing a better job of slowing down to make sure he is reading every part of the question. In the last half hour, we moved to the math portion of the exam. We talked about drawing a picture to work through word problems so that he understands which numbers to work with.

ACT Math Tutoring review by Hadley in San Mateo, CA
In my first session with the student, I provided her with a comprehensive overview of the exam, section by section. She did not hesitate to ask questions or voice any concerns, and I can tell that she is very much dedicated to her success. We next went through passages from the English and Reading sections of the exam. She overall performed very well and answered most of the questions correctly. I provided her with some strategies to go about answering certain questions within these sections. She will be completing diagnostic tests for our next session. I am definitely confident that, with some test prep, she will excel on her ACT exam.
