Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today I worked with the student in Language Arts, reading a story, comprehension and identifying beginning sounds of words. She read a story about ants and was able to identify the main idea and details of the story. We also did word problems focusing on addition and subtraction. She did great today!"
"We covered Math word problems and comprehension of those problems. Though he caught on quickly, he struggled with identification and application of the problems. He was very receptive and engaged in progressing his skills in the subject. I taught him some tricks to assist in identifying and applying skills to each problem. He is learning quickly and demonstrates an enthusiasm to learn."
"The student's mother and I discussed how we would like to address math over the summer. She is going to look into an online practice forum and a math practice book. The student and I worked on word problems, and how to approach them without feeling overwhelmed; this will give him some structure."
"The student and I continued bringing together all of the fraction, multiplication, and division skills we have been working on since our first session to learn how to multiply mixed numbers. She seems to be catching on with how to do this and continues to be amazed at how she is also reviewing old concepts while learning something new! We also played a few review games on a website that helped reinforce the ideas of area and perimeter."
"I worked with the student on assessing which math skills he knew well and which he struggled with. With adding double-digit number, after I reformatted the problems from horizontal to vertical, he answered most of the addition questions correctly. He did mention to me that his teacher had said that he needed to be able to add more quickly. He did well with telling time from clocks, counting by twos starting with two, and counting change. He did very well with simple subtraction, but he struggled with subtraction with borrowing/regrouping. I left the worksheets I printed out from online and suggested that he practice writing numbers in order to help increase his speed with solving addition and subtraction problems."
"The student and I worked through another multiplication sheet, along with some pages in her drill book, and read part of another short book. She previously explained to me that she does multiplication by adding, which will be a problem as she progresses through school. The goal is to have her multiplication facts memorized by the end of the summer at the very latest. Her homework is to continue working on her multiplication facts through the use of flashcards, finish reading the book, and do two pages in her language arts drill book."
