Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

The student and I went through the directions for each section and talked a lot with her mom about how to check over her answers and not feel pressured on the test. Now that she has taken it, it seems like we will need to have a different approach in explaining how to go through it.

Today, the student and I added on vocabulary words from e to g (ending with graceful). We then reviewed area of triangles. We covered essay strategy, and I will be assigning an essay prompt for her to complete for Wednesday. Lastly, we went over homework and reviewed the problems she missed. I will be assigning her vocabulary, an essay, and extra math problems for homework. No concerns.

We worked on an essay practice and then he did some reading comprehension questions. For reading comprehension, he did well also.

I covered adding/subtracting decimals, adding/subtracting and multiplying/ dividing negative numbers, reducing fractions and converting fractions to decimals and back again with the student. I also went over Practice Exam Drill 1 and Easy Analogy Practice Exam Drill 2. I left him some notes on fraction as homework to cover next week.

Today the student and I worked through a diagnostic test for the Math section of the assessment lower level test. We spent the second half of the session going back over certain problems. She will practice with these concepts before our next sessions, and I gave this list to her parents.

We began with math using the test prep book. We looked at a list of math terms/definitions that the test expects you to know. The student circled the words he was unsure of and we discussed them. The test uses words like integer, consecutive, quotient, sum, and product in its questions without defining them. I made a chart for him of the four operations and words associated with them. He can add to this chart as he comes upon more terms. Reading: we read three passages. He did well on one passage from the practice test. We will continue to work on these. We ended with some analogies; he is making great progress on these. Homework: 1) continue learning multiplication table, 2) continue learning vocab words.
