Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
The student had a test review to complete for his homework. This review covered estimation, basic descriptive statistics, decimal arithmetic, metric conversions, and comparing absolute values. Metric conversions took him a long time, so I gave him a simple way to remember whether he should be dividing or multiplying to get a final answer. I also checked his current events assignment.
We worked on her math homework that involved adding totals of food items to an overall total that couldn't exceed a specific amount. We also did spelling, going over her words for this week and doing one of the two spelling assignments for the week. We also developed a plan that would help her enjoy her assigned reading more by breaking it into sections while she completed other homework assignments.
The student & I discussed better planning for her homework assignments so that she remembers to bring assignments and books home.
The student and I reviewed quadrilaterals and worked through some complex word problems. I noticed that he has a bit of trouble with complex arithmetic and multiplication, so in the time between now and when we meet next, I recommend that he reviews concepts from the book.
Both students had homework so we caught up on the week's assignments. The first student was very focused and easy to work. I helped the second student clean out his binder and made divider sections by subject for him.
During the session, we spent time reviewing 2-digit by 2-digit multiplication. We then went on to work through her homework packet covering that material. We also briefly covered long division as it is something the student felt she wanted to review before covering it in class. She seemed to catch on pretty quickly, and with review I think she will be even more comfortable with the material. We worked on roots, prefixes, and suffixes and completed a worksheet on that. She was unsure at first but did very well and was confident in her answers after we discussed a few of the problems. We also worked on her vocabulary packet, read through a passage and completed most of the reading comprehension packet that followed.
We worked on the student's math homework and went over his spelling words. He got all of his spelling words correct on the first try! We did worksheets on ordinal numbers, patterns, and determining addition and subtraction operations.
Final prep before first day of school (and a test) tomorrow. Used something similar to a diagnostic test; covered order of operations, plotting points, introductory algebra, number sequences, etc. Scheduled next session and will see how the student does on her test.
This was my 2nd session with the student. She has a test on LCM and GCF on Wednesday so we continued to study for that. I gave her harder word problems and checked her homework. She will study the material we went over for her test. I enjoyed working with her and she's a great kid!
Worked with the students on calculating areas of compound shapes and circles. We went over their two math worksheets for their homework this week. They both did really well. Both boys had solid understanding of concepts and just needed a little guidance.
Today's work was arithmetic, primarily focused on rounding. The boys had the skill and knew the rules about when and how to round. The lesson concluded with a bit of multiplication and division, and once again their critical reading of the question was great. This led to following previous questions' patterns.
We reviewed multiplication tables for 9s, recalling the strategy of multiplying by (10-1). This strategy requires a good use of subtraction from multiples of ten, so we also reviewed number families that include the number ten. I gave her timed worksheets to practice quickly recalling addition/subtraction number families, and she got better at doing this quickly than slowly. We reviewed products of 5 and then used a similar strategy as the 9s strategy to find multiples of 6 (thinking of it as 5+1). I want her to know all of her number families for single digit integers, so in addition to those that add up to ten, we practiced all single-digit number families that include the number two. She was able to do all of these quite quickly by the end of the session. Last, we practiced the few multiplication tables that have no good strategy. This was sheer memorization, and she did well with it.
How can a tutor assist you in conquering Arithmetic?
Being one of the three "R’s" (Reading, Writing, Arithmetic), Arithmetic skills are fundamental building blocks. The math skills learned in Kindergarten and Elementary School determine whether your student will be on an accelerated track to higher mathematics, or be left behind. In fact, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) recommend that young students should already be using algebraic reasoning during Elementary School.
A private Arithmetic tutor can maximize your student’s mathematics potential. Many arithmetic tutors have experience teaching K-8 grades and have a math specialization. Tutors can teach Numbers and Operations, Pre-Algebra Concepts, Geometry, and Measurement, using activities, games, and manipulatives to engage students’ interest while teaching crucial math skills.
