Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I was the sub tutor for the student and I really like her. During our session we took some time to go over her math homework for the summer. We focused on equations and decimals. With some guidance, she did well in the equation problems, but she still needs to get more practice so that she won't forget the general rules. She needs more help with the decimal problems. It would be great if I have other chances to help her better understand this type of problem."
"We went over mathematical operations with and without variables. We also went over types of numbers (pos, neg, decimal, fractions)."
"We reviewed previous day's lesson and covered strategies to add three digits, and skip counting by 2's, 3's, 4's and 5's. We solved a few problems using these strategies."
"Today the student had a math assignment to do online. It was 20 questions long and she had worked on three of these questions on her own; two were wrong and one partially correct. During the session we worked on the last 17 problems. They were all on fractions, simplifying and finding their equivalents. It was a very positive session once she understood how to find the equivalent of the fractions. She received an 86.2% on that assignment."
"We reviewed for the student's geometry final--I hope he did a great job! He was doing well in review, and he was very focused and pretty solid on most concepts."
"We resumed working on the student's winter packet. She had a bit of difficulty with the first problems, which involved writing expressions and dividing and multiplying fractions. I had to go over the strategies with her step by step, and I modeled examples until she was comfortable with the material being reviewed. Then, she was able to work on her own. She then completed the problems on the next two pages independently without any errors. These problems involved the concepts of LCM, factoring expressions, equivalent expressions, distance/time, integers, rational numbers, and the distributive property."
