Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has a test on text structure on Friday. Today we practiced identifying the different types of text structures in paragraphs and he also used the graphic organizers to identify information from the stories. He also practiced math word problems using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. He needs more practice with long division, so I left some homework problems for him to work on"
"I covered the homework for Monday and Tuesday. For social studies, we completed chapter 8 "Life During the War," by writing the definition and one example for each vocabulary word, drawing a line connecting each person to what that that person did, filling in word webs, and filling in the sequence chart. For math, we converted units to complete each equation, and completed each conversion table. For reading, we read "Calm Koalas," and answered the questions, filled in for the correct answer and wrote the spelling word that goes with each sentence."
"During yesterday's session, the student and I reviewed her language arts homework, which was an assignment related to evaluating "cause and effect" in both stories and history. She then completed her reading assignment for the day, and we looked at the book she is currently reading and talked about ways to uncover context in the story such as setting, character perspective, and other elements that are useful for understanding the text. We concluded our session by doing extra math practice in her extra credit math book, focusing on concepts that her Math teacher and I had emailed about."
