Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked to cement his skills with series and sums. We worked to help him completely grasp the relationship of terms in geometric v. arithmetic series and the resulting effect in sums. We reviewed recursive series, the difference/ratio relationships in series, and calculating sums. He has a strong understanding series and sums, and I believe that we cemented his ability to apply equations to multiple types of problems."
"I worked with the student on arcs and angle measures, as inscribed in circles. We finished early, so we worked on state tests involving formal logic and geometry of shapes."
"We reviewed different types of graphs, like histograms and line graphs, and then we practiced ratio problems."
"For this session, the student and I first reviewed the homework I left her from the last session. She is getting better at plotting in the first quadrant in the coordinate plane. After that, we then moved on to adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators, as that topic is what her class was last working on. She did her best to finish the worksheet I had brought. For the last part of the session, we played a multiplication game, as I wanted to end on a fun note. I gave her the second fraction sheet for homework, due for next session."
"The student had to write a paragraph on Father Serra for homework. We used that opportunity to practice researching more information on Father Serra and summarizing paragraphs, brainstorming what she already knows about him, and also using a graphic organizer to organize her thoughts to write the paragraph. Homework is to continue writing in her reading journal and to practice her multiplication facts of 8."
"In today's session the student worked on homework on the school worksheet, and later we worked on converting fractions to decimals and decimals to fractions. She has been working on a math app every day and enjoying it. So I have asked to work on decimals on the app as home work, rather than having her work on a worksheet or problem sets."
