Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This session, the student and I were able to review all of his math homework for the week, which focused on decimals. He did quite well with adding and subtracting the decimals; he just needed a bit of guidance on how to determine where to place the decimal point."
"We covered least common denominator, story summary, the student's tall tale, and some reading comprehension. The student was positive. We did a combo of working together and him working independently. I think it helped. Overall, it was positive session."
"The student worked on problems focusing on setting up algebraic expressions for word problems. She had some difficulty understanding how to convert the words into math symbols at first, but by the end, she successfully set up the three problems she did not understand earlier. She had already analyzed her poem and had done the best analysis she has done all year. We discussed the poem and its meaning. She then worked on exercises involving probability and statistics as part of her assessment exam prep."
"Student 1- We created a character to write a fiction story. He developed a character for himself and a close friend by choosing likes, dislikes, physical attributes, and fears. He will build on this character to write a fiction story. We also worked on a writing computer game. Student 2- We reviewed writing and identifying equations using addition, multiplication, division, and subtraction. We also worked on word problems using the same skills. We used a math computer program."
"Kindergarten and 1st grade concepts are very easy for the student to comprehend, and he gets disinterested in the assignments. He needs to get challenged with timed exercises to keep his mind sharp. We are going over double digit addition and subtraction. We went over it briefly last week, and we practiced it all day today. He was able to understand the concept by the end of the session. I'm going to keep challenging him on this until his accuracy improves."
"Tonight, we focused on the student's quiz tomorrow. He did not understand how to do the base ten block modeling with division, so we spent a lot of time modeling problems together. As we went through the problems, he became more confident at solving the division problems with the modeling. A strategy for him to ensure that his model is correct is to do the division problem to check it. He practiced estimating and answering 2 open-ended explanation problems at the end. He is getting better at explaining himself."
