Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This session the student and I started out working on some numbers. She does a great job counting up to 30, and she's getting better at writing the numbers 0-10; she still needs a little work on 2, 5, and 9. Then we worked on words ending in "p". To finish, we worked on a "mixed review" of beginning letters -- she is able to determine beginning letters of words almost 100% of the time! She even took it a step further and when she saw pictures of a cat and a dog, not only named the first letter but spelled the whole word!"
"The student worked on his multiplication facts. He is getting much better. I can see quite a bit of improvement. We will continue to work on times tables for the next few sessions and then start on double digit multiplication and some division. "
"This was our fifth session together. The student and I worked on comprehension questions that she had over the book on The Westing Game. We also quickly reviewed some of the vocabulary from this book. With the other student we worked on some of his spelling work and talked about prefixes. We also studied his words. Then we read some more of his book and wrote a response to it. We also continued to work on his multiplication facts with the use of flashcards and practice sheets that he received from his teacher."
"As usual, the student mastered the concepts we covered by the end of the session. I recommended that he do at least 15 minutes of math every day. Next week I will bring some supplemental worksheets for him to work on throughout the week."
"We finished reviewing Algebra practice problems for the exam. We spent the rest of the session reviewing his science work, and I showed him how to properly take notes out of his textbook."
"We went through another problem set to get the student prepared for his last quiz, which will mean he is done with accounting. We went through footnotes to determine unrealized gains/losses on tradeable vs. available for sale securities and the effects on the balance sheet and income statements. Complicated stuff. He did a great job."
