Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I gave her words and she spelled them. She worked in 2 different workbooks for clock and time. I showed her rhyming flash cards and she told me what rhymed. In her math book she wrote one through 50 and sequencing. We finished with the student reading three Billy goats gruff."
"The student and I had a good day. We began our word journal focusing on puppies and he wrote a journal entry about "what puppies like to do." We worked on word problems in math. We did context clues from our reading workbook; this is really easy for him."
"We covered sight words and phonics today. The student has progressed so much already and is excited about learning. We also practiced first grade math, and he has a love for math now. I feel that with lots of practice over the summer, he will be very well prepared for second grade."
"I assisted the student with his vocabulary. I also checked his language arts homework. Finally, we went over his math project."
"First tutoring lesson with this student. We started out with introductions, and he told me a little about himself and his interests. We talked about the work that he had been doing with his previous tutor, and we picked up the next chapter in his workbook--multiplying fractions. He picked up the concepts quickly after a brief review, but seems shaky on reducing fractions and converting improper fractions to mixed numbers. We will continue practicing this skill at our next meeting. We finished the lesson with a short, free writing exercise, which we then proofread and corrected together."
"We began the session reviewing multiplication facts of 2 for two minutes. We reviewed long division, multiplication of 2 and 3 digits. We then worked on rounding by tens and hundreds. I made number lines for the student to help her understand how to round tens and hundreds. Then I reviewed place value up to hundred thousands and practiced saying numbers to help familiarize her with vocabulary and pronunciation. Then we read a passage called A Class Trip to the Aquarium. We discussed vocabulary, setting, and main idea. She struggled somewhat with inference questions but that is to be expected with English as a second language student. She was able to answer some comprehension questions independently."
