Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Tonight we focused on completing the student's homework. For science he had to read a brief passage about a volcano and answer 10 comprehension questions about it. The student did superbly with this and needed very little help. For math he had a review worksheet about multiplying fractions and mixed numbers. The student really struggled with this worksheet. He needed a brief refresher of how to multiply fractions and mixed numbers before we could begin. Once we got started, he did better but needed constant reminders so he would not skip a step."
"The student finished her weekly homework! She was very focused and eager to work. She worked on subtraction using the standard algorithm and she was able to work independently. For our next session, we will keep practicing subtraction using the standard algorithm, word problems, and adding with regrouping using the standard algorithm."
"Student 1 began with a review of multiplying decimals and did well. We then went over the new concept of dividing decimals by whole numbers, and she did great. We ended with some more decimal division practice with part of the equation missing, and overall she did great. Student 2 also began with a review of multiplying decimals, and had a bit of difficulty at first. We then went over the new concept of dividing decimals by whole numbers, and she did great."
"The student and I worked on a chapter review covering conversion. We focused primarily on word problems. We also focused on converting time. She did well. She knows the steps and is able to mentally compute answers, but she sometimes needs to talk through the process of how to complete the problem."
"Today we focused our attention mostly on continuing to practice counting money. The student's teacher sent home another sheet to practice counting with coins."
"We reviewed his map, thought of some potential science experiments and worked on decimals. Everything went just fine for the student today. He was very positive and eager to work today. No real study strategies were needed today; I just made sure he double checked when I saw he had made a slip up. It was a good session. The student is handling the new math material very well."
