Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We did a general review over practice tests to prep for the exam. He is doing very well. He just needs more practice with rates and reducing fractions."
"We reviewed materials for the final containing geometric and arithmetic sequences, finding formulas, and determining patterns from outputs and inputs."
"Today we reviewed long division and also focused on word problem- the student seems to be improving on these areas which she had previously had questions on."
"The student completed her homework and some extra math practice this session. She completed her timed division worksheet first. She answered those the questions correctly. We moved on to another sheet concerning multiplying by 1 and 0. She then completed some practice of division by 2-digit numbers, which she understands. We then ended with an online 3rd-grade math game to review a bit of everything. The student puts forth a lot of energy toward her school work, and she is ahead of the rest of her classmates in terms of the curriculum and knowledge."
"The student and I reviewed multiplication between a whole number and a fraction. We looked at how we can use a number line and a diagram to help us solve these problems. We then worked on a review of perimeter and area, which the student was rusty in. The biggest issue for her regarding that is that she tends to forget to use the formulas. When she uses the formulas, she knows what she is doing. I left the student with some fraction word problems that we will review next session."
"The student did not have any homework today, so I improvised a math game for her to practice her math skills. I drew a board game on notebook paper and placed a math problem in each square. A player had to correctly answer the math problem to get a point. Word problems were worth 3 points. We used a coin toss to determine the number of spaces a player moved. Heads = 1 space, Tails = 2 spaces. I helped the student whenever she had problems solving the equation. After the math game, we practiced her spelling skills by playing a game in which she had to make words from scrambled letters."
