Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on his math packet for the whole time period tonight. We were able to complete 2 and half pages of mixed review work. The student did a great job of staying focused and was able to complete long division, three digit multiplication, comparing numbers and many other skills independently. He struggled to write word problems on his own, but we worked on them together to form a good sentence structure and a plausible problem. He had a great session!"
"Today we set a study schedule for Student 1's finals next week. We laid out everything that will be tested and planned on how to best prepare. We then started studying for history. Student 2 had math tests to review. Both students did very well today."
"The student and I worked on addition and understanding multiplication. She's excited to see that multiplication really isn't very different from adding. She was a little nervous at first to begin learning, but loves it now. We also worked on handwriting and reading."
"Today we had a productive session. With Student A I reviewed rational and irrational numbers, and we also went over exponents and square roots. Then we did workbook exercises that focused on word problems. I gave him strategies for solving them. With Student B, we reviewed the alphabet; we went over lowercase and capital letters. We then went over shapes and did a few drawing exercises, and some color recognition. Then we went over vocabulary, then reading exercises. With Student C, I did copious penmanship exercises. We also did reading and writing exercises focused on reading comprehension and using text-based evidence to answer questions. We also did enunciation exercises."
"We worked in a new book to assist with vocabulary and word association. We will continue to work on the vocabulary throughout the summer. It will help with reading skills and mathematics problem solving. I left an extra copy of the word ladders for her to work with her brother for practice and/or educational competition."
"Worked on coordinates in her math homework packet. Finished 2 pages and then played a Battleship game her teacher sent home to reinforce mapping of coordinates. The student was fuzzy at first about how to tell which set of coordinates would lead to parallel lines on which axes but is very clear now. She was a lot more open and communicative with me and we laughed doing Math!!"
