Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"For this session, the student continued practicing subtraction of double digits with regrouping. He appears to have mastered this skill as he can complete the problems without assistance. Great job! He also practiced the reading comprehension skill of context clues. He did a great job with this skill as well."
"The student has a test this week covering fractions. On the previous test, she only got one wrong, and that was one of the communication problems. Therefore, we practiced word problems, and she had to answer using a communication response. She feels very confident that she will do well on her test."
"Student A and I went over reading and writing today. He read a book and wrote a three-paragraph summary on the content in the book. His attitude was positive toward the material, and he seems fond of reading material. I taught him the strategy of including the most important and relevant information in his writing. This way the reader can glean that which is most important simply from his summary. Student B and I worked on math and writing. She wrote another essay dealing with immigration and privileges in the United States of America. She had a wonderful attitude, and had three points prepared that she wanted to write about. We worked on math afterwards, specifically geometry: lines, line segments, and rays."
"The student and I went over 6th grade algebra this session. Her homework was vocabulary-heavy and focused on understanding the different parts of an algebraic expression/equation. We also went a little ahead of her class and started solving for variables, and we focused on the terminology behind the algebra. Overall, she made a great effort."
"We continued solving multi-step equations and then moved on to solving absolute value equations. I think the student got the central idea of how to solve them. For next time, I'll quiz him to see how much he remembers how to solve multi-step and absolute values."
"The student and I started working on measurement and telling time. I believe she will be working on these concepts next in math, and I wanted to give her a head start. She did really well with measurement. Afterwards, we worked on addition facts with 4. She did really well today."
