Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I spent this session covering related multiplication and division problems. He was able to complete the multiplication word problems independently, and needed assistance with comprehending the division word problem. I can see that he is able to retain techniques with minor prompting."
"The student and I talked about how we're going to handle things for the summer, and we worked on some division and multiplications skills. I had to remind her of the steps for multiplying multi-digit numbers, and she made a little simple errors."
"We began working on an activity where the student had to understand a dilemma or social issue and figure out the solutions. He did a nice job relating to how this is common in his life. After, we completed 2 math worksheets. The first page had fill in the blanks in a number sequence and he had to figure out the rule to solve. The second page was adding fractions with unlike denominators. Overall it was a good session and we completed all his homework."
"We worked on a reading passage and finding and underlining the answers in the passage. The student could answer the majority of the questions independently. Her division and multiplication facts are improving day by day. She is able to recollect the answers much faster when given a basic fact."
"We worked out of two third grade level workbooks the student had. She did many logic puzzle type problems, and seemed to really enjoy them. She likes being challenged! Several of the problems involved addition, except instead of being simple addition problems, they had multiple steps that required addition. She caught on quickly and did a good job. She said that she liked this type of math. I assigned her five pages out of the workbooks to do as homework over the next week. We also talked more about multiplication, reviewing the idea that anything times zero is zero and anything times one is itself. I used some of the problems in the workbook as a starting point to explain how multiplication is similar to addition, and how she can use her knowledge of addition to understand multiplication. Going forward, we will continue with the two workbooks she has. I recommend that she get more workbooks at a second and third grade level in the future."
"We covered recognizing factors. He understood them well but struggled somewhat in the larger times tables (above 10). I plan to work on times tables with him on our next session, specifically in speed and picking up on them faster. There was a comment from his grandmother that his teacher stated that he is performing well in school."
