Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student worked on homework for multiple classes today. He began with a language arts worksheet, then worked on his math homework. We moved on from there to working on vocabulary words, and we concluded with work on the differences between simple and compound sentences."
"The student and I went through more of his packet today and also tried some previous state math tests that I had found online. The questions on the online tests were much easier than those in the packet, and he went through these problems with ease. We still have a few more to get through in the packet, which we will continue when we meet again."
"The student and I had a great first session. We watched an informational video about Paul Bunyan, and she wrote a report on it. After she finished, we worked on her math facts before working on equivalent fractions. She seems to have a solid grasp on her math facts, only needing to fix a few. I showed her a trick to multiply by 9s that she grasped quickly and enjoyed. She understands what equivalent fractions are, but needs more practice applying her math facts to quickly identify equivalent fractions. I left her with additional practice on her iPad."
"Tonight the student worked on her algebra homework. Overall, the session went ok. I just reminded her to ask her teacher to explain to her what to do."
"The student and I worked on an English essay he had due. He managed to incorporate most of the corrections his peers had given him. I pushed him at the end of the session to also add in a quote from the works he was analyzing as his teacher had asked. He did so and said that he was going to work on his essay for ten more minutes after I left. He worked on homework over the weekend on his own. I feel he is slowly but surely gaining autonomy in maintaining his own organization and school work."
"For today's session, we worked on converting equations from standard form to slop-intercept form and also graphing lines from the given equations. At first, the student had a bit of trouble, but he was able to get the concept. I will continue to work on integers with him."
