Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we reviewed plotting points again, and the student did well! She is going to do well on her test. We reviewed "average," which she also has a good understanding of. We also worked on some word problems and fractions."
"The student and I spent the hour going over five word problems that she previously had trouble with. Some of the concepts were still challenging, specifically converting measurements, but by breaking down each question into sequential steps, she was able to arrive at the correct answer each time. I would like to follow up with more word problems in our next session and challenge her to set up the steps on her own. I have printed out practice assessment tests, and we will use those in our Saturday session. I was pleased this evening because I think the student got a confidence boost by being able to solve the problems she previously got incorrect."
"The student did very well today and showed immense improvement. He completed almost all of the math independently and was focused and enthusiastic. He also did very well with the reading and only required a few prompts."
"We covered world map terms, multiplication with fractions and mixed numbers, and reading comprehension. The math confused him a bit, but I believe the approach from the assignment was the confusing part. He understood the underlying concepts just fine. He was happy about the work. We did alternate examples of the math and worked together on the reading so the student wouldn't ignore important things. We did plenty of work and I believe he did it all well."
"The student and I reviewed her PowerPoint presentation to go with her project, and she knew exactly what she wanted to do, so it was quite simple. She was focused and proud of the finished product."
"The first student and I worked on a review of math and science. He has a project due next week. The second student and I worked on math. He has a quiz tomorrow over stem and leaf plot, tally charts, mean/median/mode/range, and histograms. Both boys did very well tonight."
