Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student started out by telling me about a few of the problems that had been on her test that she was confused by, and we worked through them. She felt very good about the test in general though, which was great. We did some more mental math with multiplication, and I could tell she has been practicing, because she beat her high score."
"Today we covered the reading concepts of purpose of writing. We read short stories and the student was able to identify the intent of the reading including information, entertainment, challenge and alarm. We also looked at chapter 1 of his Goosebump's story identifying the characters and what was happening in the story. In math we went over place value to the thousands and expanded form. I have asked him to read a chapter daily in his chapter book. He did an excellent job today."
"The student counted coins to get the total amount. She added the coins up on her desk as well as adding the columns on the whiteboard. She is doing SUPER in adding money! We also went over tally marks, counting items and putting the correct number of tally marks with the items. Then we reviewed adding and subtracting 2 and 3 digit numbers. The student did amazing!!! We also read 2 pages of the book, Sugar Plum Ballerina. We will continue to work on reading comprehension. She was attentive and did a super job in both math and reading!"
"The student worked on his homework. That only took a half an hour, so luckily I had some math games on my tablet. He really enjoyed working on the computer for math. He was laughing and excited to work with counting and addition."
"The student and I worked on defining Lord of the Rings words using context clues again. If he was stuck I would create a secondary sentence for him to use. We worked on different levels of math on a website for the second half. For his homework, he is to complete the sequence of five different number patterns to the next four numbers. He is to also create five of his own patterns for me to solve. He was excited about the possibility of using square roots as part of his pattern."
"The student and I continued to work on her multiplication tables, using flashcards I'd made at her last session. The goal is to get her comfortable with her facts until she has them memorized. We also worked on pages from her drill book and in reading."
