Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered the following topics from her homework and previous tests: converting word problems to expressions, solving the expressions, adding improper fractions, and cross multiplication of proportions. The student did very well. She was able to translate the word problems into expressions easily; she only a little trouble on a few. She also seems to have figured out improper fractions since her last test. And after working together on a few proportion questions, she picked it up quickly. Most of the errors were minor, and she discovered them once I prompted her to review her answer."
"I went through the student's math textbook (theories and practice problems) with her on surface areas and volumes for trigonal pyramid (and bipyramid), square pyramid (and bipyramid), trigonal prism, rectangular prism, and combinations of these forms. I also taught the student how to simplify the math equations to get quicker answers within shorter period of time."
"We are working on Credit Recovery for his math class from last semester. Making good progress. Every time I meet with him, I see a major improvement in his math skills and his attitude and willing to take charge of his own learning!! We are all pretty excited!!"
"The student played math games to build on his skills in counting objects up to. He was required to identify the written numbers that corresponded to the number of objects shown in pictures. He counts very well, and he showed an eagerness to count the different objects and animals. Action steps include having at least one day for math each week, in addition to practicing both math and reading on Saturdays. Also, we will continue to play math games and learn songs for counting."
"The student and I met Sunday and focused more on fractions. We began with GCF and LCM. While she was very successful with LCM, she had a kind of block in her mind about how GCM should be found. When we were met with a word problem and she did not realize that GCF was a goal, she had no problem and used division to solve. We practiced using this strategy and also factorials to find GCF. From there, we moved on to adding and subtracting fractions, which she is developing automacy with as we practice. We then took a look at a piece of homework on weight and mass, their current unit of study, and noted that it asked the students to use algebra skills to solve. I explained the basics of this process and showed her the butterfly method. Our next session will focus on comparing fractions and introduce converting between fractions and decimals."
"We covered 2 chapters from the student's science book for her upcoming test. We did physical change, chemical change, states of matter, concentration, solubility, solutes, solvents, activation energy, and catalysts. We also covered subtraction and addition of decimals for her upcoming math tests. We covered some basic rules for adding and subtracting decimals. I sent her mom some worksheets for her to get more practice in adding and subtracting decimals. Great session; she had a good attitude and likes to learn."
