Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over her Mesopotamia quiz and corrected the questions she answered incorrectly. We also practiced the multiplication table intensively. In particular, we practiced all her 7's and 8's. We will review these next week and start on her 9's and 3's. I also practiced reading with Student 2. She still has difficulty with the same letters. We will need to try a different method to try to help her remember these letters (R, P vs. D, Y)."
"Today, the student and I started with divisibility rules and then moved on to least common multiple and greatest common factor. She understood all three of these topics really well."
"The student and I worked on her review packet for her upcoming test which covered angles and integers."
"My first session with the student went really well. We went over the rest of her math homework, which consisted of step-by-step problem solving. She was very eager to get the right answer, so I had her slow down and make sure that she had all the information and knew what she had to do before she even started solving the problem. I could see that she really understood how to do the problem afterwards. I then had her do some mental addition and subtraction, and I taught her some tricks to make it a little easier so she doesn't have to count on her hands. I can see that she is a very eager student and is very smart."
"We worked on equivalent fractions and number lines, which is what the student's current curriculum/school hw is. We also reviewed division and word problems. She is showing wonderful improvement, and I left her with some division word problems to work on. She was also much more focused and enthusiastic about math this time around, which was great"
"We went over the student's homework, as usual, and we made a circle on the other subjects. She requested more word problems dealing with decimals. I agreed to that. Overall, she did very well! She also showed me her progress report, and I am so proud of her! She's doing so much better in all of her subjects, especially math!! If I remember correctly, she has increased her math grade by seven points. She's making wonderful progress!"
