Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered multiplying, dividing, adding, and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers in depth. We adding negative numbers to the distance formula and concluded by working on coordinate geometry. She was struggling with negative numbers and simple mistakes involving exponents. She eventually got much better after several problems. For homework, she will be completing a full length ISEE test, and I will be sending her notes."
"The student answered all his homework questions correctly. I asked him to write another draft of his essay. I then introduced multiplication and division with mixed numbers. We discussed addition and subtraction with mixed numbers as well. He and I completed two mixed number addition problems and two mixed number subtraction problems. Next, we discussed multiplying and dividing mixed numbers. I assigned the student some problems of each type for homework, and a worksheet for ordering fractions from smallest to largest. We reviewed a method for comparing fractions before moving on to the verbal portion of the lesson. For verbal practice, the student completed 4 context clue paragraphs. He had to define the meaning of a bold-lettered words in the paragraph based on context clues. He also completed two drawing-conclusion passages, and answered both questions correctly. Lastly, he completed one main idea passage, which he answered correctly."
"For the first half of our session we began the student's reading response assignment, which she has decided to supplement with a comic strip. She's a phenomenal artist and this project should be really good for her. Following the reading response, we worked on the same practice lower level exam from last week and it was very pleasing to see that she got every single question right! It is comforting to see that she has the capability to do well, she just needs to put in the extra effort. I left her with some tasks to complete before our next session with regards to her reading response assignment."
