Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over math, reading, and spelling during this session. Her math homework covered plotting data and identifying the outliers. The material was straightforward for her and she completed the homework enthusiastically and very well. Afterwards, we reviewed her spelling words. We then completed exercises that required identifying spelling patterns between the words, and finding the synonyms for each word. She needed help on a few of the questions but otherwise learned the spelling very quickly. For the last 15 minutes of the session we then read her book together to prepare for her upcoming reading log."
"The student and I referred to her textbook's chart of basic customary system length, capacity, and weight conversions. We practiced capacity conversions with pictures. The student successfully concluded that multiplication would help her in the direction in which we worked--3 cups = 24 fl. oz. because 3 x 8 = 24. She shows improvement in her 3s and 2s multiplication facts. We also reviewed place value and practiced through ten millions. We will continue to work on measurement conversion strategies, place value, and multi-digit multiplication. She is showing progress in all of these."
"The student had a bit of trouble with her math homework the past few days. We went over the problem areas, focusing particularly on drawing diagrams for word problems. The student now knows to be consistent in her interval when she uses a scale/ number line. The student whizzed through her math homework. The student also wanted to review her ELA homework with me. We read two passages aloud, and discussed them - focusing on audience, purpose, and message. The student did an excellent job answering the multiple choice questions, and knows how to eliminate wrong answer choices."
