Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has been catching up with her division, which is great. We were able to also work on decimals and multiplication this session. She started the session off with her homework, which covered division word problems that came very easily to her because of her division practice. She then worked on problem sets in her workbooks."
"The student and I went over polygons, parallelograms, and other quadrilaterals. Specifically, we covered the relationships between parallelograms, rhombus, rectangles, and squares, and we did proofs to show that certain figures were parallelograms. I also gave her a list of properties that can be used to prove whether a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, along with practice problems that she may check with me through email to see if she is doing them correctly."
"We made good progress today on fractions. With a little bit of a refresher, the student was able to find the lowest common denominator and add fractions. He had difficulty at first with division, but we practiced restating these as multiplication problems, and he did much better."
"The student needed to review the lesson on area of composite figures. First I explained the meaning of composite. Then she started with practicing problems from her textbook. She had to find the area of a given composite figures. She worked independently on the first 2 problems correctly. However she struggled with the concept of separating the composite figure to find the total area of the 2 or more figures. I reviewed the steps and strategies in breaking apart the composite figure by guiding her through a few examples. I also reviewed the lesson vocabulary with her, since she had to identify the figures at times. She was very responsive and had positive attitude towards the material reviewed. She was able to do all problems independently by the end of the session."
"Student A and I worked on multiplication, specifically multiples of 4. Student B worked on her homework related to decimals and fractions into decimals."
"We covered missed questions on the student's previous homework. He needed help with understanding what a percentage truly represents and how to solve for percent given two numbers and how much a percent is of a number."
