Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I reviewed the student's homework to make sure that his answers were all correct. I found several problems that he corrected after I pointed them out to him. The worksheets consisted of his reading passages on Paul Revere and a math worksheet."
"The student completed his math, science, and social studies homework. He has shown improvement in dividing decimals, remembering place holders, and solving multi-step word problems. We also completed a math worksheet on solving problems with variables."
"We reviewed a math test for Chapter 6. Then we reviewed how to divide fractions. I taught her to remember KCF-keep, change, and flip. Then we began to review how to do line plots with fractions. We watched a video explaining line plots. I will bring practice problems on Monday for line plots and ordered pairs."
"The student worked on his homework this session. His math was a struggle today, solving algebraic equations with negatives. He worked hard on it, though, and will finish the other half tomorrow. We also spent a little time on his reading homework, and his mom and I discussed summer plans."
"Tonight, the student and I went over how to properly abbreviate certain names, such as initials, months, titles, days, streets, and various metric quantities. With my facilitation, the student was also able to articulately spell 12 words containing two or three syllables on his vocabulary list. Of course, we ended the evening with some video games and Spanish, reminding him how to say simple commands such as "I eat," and "I drink." In regards to spelling, with higher-syllable words, the student tends to spell phonetically and often confuses his "B"s with "V"s, and some homophonic consonant pairs such as "ph" and "th," which we will work on next time. With a lot of patience and play, he does very well. I'm proud of his progress thus far!"
"We studied spelling, which is improving. There was a mathematics worksheet covering multiplication/division word problems, which had small math errors. The student's reading homework involved discussion questions; this is always the most lengthy and difficult subject we have due to the language barrier. We will continue to work on this next session."
