Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we worked on Math and reading/writing for half an hour each. Using the statewide practice booklets, I went over concepts that the student struggled with such as multiplication between two digit numbers and geometry. In reading, I enforced the procedure to always go back to the readings and use details from the stories before answering the questions. I left him with a couple of pages of homework in order to make the most of the one hour tutoring next week."
"We continued to work on the first practice test of the test. We finished the writing prompt together. We talked about things that he needs to do when taking the test like underlining in the writing prompt what he is being asked to do and then at the end making sure he has answered the question. We started on the next practice test. I left him the pre-writing and introduction to start on his own this time."
"Today the student and I did some math practice, read her assigned story to prepare for her comprehension test and also practiced her vocabulary words. We also did two worksheets together, one on cause and effect and one on incomplete/complete sentences. We created a strategy to go over two-part bar-model problems by labeling each number with what it represents. For example, if 2 represented how many cookies I ate on Sunday, she would write "2 cookies ate on Sunday." This helped her distinguish what each number meant, and therefore, what number correlated to the number asked for in the question. I left her with some extra practice with complete/incomplete sentences."
