Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we played ball and hopped on squares, using them to learn what a denominator is and what a numerator is. We still need to work on reducing fractions. He grows a little confused with the rules of reducing (i.e. diving the numerator and denominator by the same #)."
"I conducted the tutorial via Skype and made initial contact with the student at 6PM. The session went very well. He remained focused the entire time. Before starting his homework, we revisited his surface area exam he had the previous week. He did not understand the bonus question, so we discussed it. He was forced to think outside of the box in order to understand the question. After grasping the concept of the question, he was able to answer the bonus question with ease. Upon completion of the bonus question, we moved on to his volume homework. He had completed half of his work prior to the start of the session. I had him scan his homework over to me so that I could have access to the material. As he worked on the remaining few problems, I completed the volume worksheet and used it to check his work for errors. He did really well on the work. As I watched him work, I noticed that he was taking his time and not rushing his work. It seems like some of my advice is finally working."
"The student and I covered several word problems involving multiplication and addition. We did challenge problems and I went over a worksheet I had created for him."
"The student's new IEP goals include counting money. I introduced the coins, and had her sort them. We discussed using touch to distinguish them. We also practiced counting by fives and tens"
"We used the hour to work with client's math flashcards. Exercises were made with the cards in order to help improve client's organizational skills. Some improvement has been noted."
"The student did very well today. He is really starting to catch on with all the different subject matters. At the beginning of our sessions, he had no idea what he was doing on any of the problems, but now he is more confident and is able to do most things on his own."
