Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent extra time together at this session helping her prepare for a test the next day. We used the teacher's list of topics covered on the test to focus our study on."
"Worked with the student on graphing inequalities. After this, we reviewed some of his ACT math answers to improve his understanding of the questions and how to arrive at the solution."
"The student had already begun her practice test for her Math test on Wednesday, so I looked at the work that she had completed to that point to make sure she was on the right track. While I took a look at her answers, she worked on Social Studies and Science. She finished both assignments by the time I had finished. She is doing well with adding, multiplying, and dividing integers, but subtracting is tricky for her. We reviewed the rules on these problems. She also is having a little bit of trouble on order of operations. We worked on setting up the problem in a way that helps her keep track of the order. At the end of our time, I gave her some additional subtraction problems to work on before the test on Wednesday. I think that repetition/reinforcement of particular concepts will allow her to master them."
"The student did well tonight. We employed a new strategy for reading and she did well with it. We also worked on number writing, number place value, and addition with carrying. She read very well tonight and was alert and engaged."
"We continued to review subtraction equations with missing values. We used physical models to increase understanding. We also did a word problem worksheet. I felt that the student did very well and seemed to have a better understanding of the material than she did in the previous session."
"Student 1: We reviewed fractions, then discussed how to change mixed numbers to fractions and fractions to mixed numbers. He picked up the concept very quickly. We ended the session discussing how to simplify fractions. Student 2: We started by reviewing breaking numbers into tens and ones. She learned how to add two digit numbers (without regrouping) by breaking up numbers. She did a great job! We then read a book together, answered questions using inference skills, and did an activity with compound words."
