Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked through a lesson on orders of operations. By the end of the lesson she was able to successfully complete each problem."
"Before we started reviewing math, we went over the student's new spelling words. She is having a quiz on them tomorrow. I gave her a practice quiz and she only got one word out of the ten. She got the word "these" wrong. I had her re-write the word three times each. Next, I introduced the student to several new books. We also looked over some worksheets in which the student had to read the sentence and complete it by choosing from a word bank. She did very well. Her vocabulary is definitely expanding. We completed a worksheet reviewing the value of a penny, a nickel and a dime as well as counting money. Finally, we went over the material for the test. The focus on the exam is counting how many tens and ones are in a number. The student was very confident with this topic and didn't have any problems. I think that she will do well on her exam, but we still have one more session to practice."
"With the first student, we practiced a bit of algebra by working on substitution and solving equations with variables in them. This was just continued practice from our last session. With the second student, we practiced adding improper fractions and mixed numbers. She has been working on this in school so I just wanted to give her additional practice problems."
"Sticking to our new routine, the student and I started with 10 minutes of reading. Then she worked on her homework involving math problems and challenging word problems. She completed approximately half them and will finish the other half during our next session."
"The student and I focused this lesson on math work. We did a few worksheets on counting and adding up money, including coins problems, and mixed coins-bills problems. We also did a worksheet on clocks and word problems on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We then transitioned to a workbook that she has and I introduced her to PEMDAS (order of operations). She understood the material and was interested in it, and just needs some reinforcement to do the problems on her own."
"Today the student and I worked on his spelling list, and adding 4 digit numbers. He needed minimal guidance with math, and was able to identify each number column, for example ones, tens, hundreds, thousands. He was able to spell all of his words correctly. Great session!"
