Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has to remember to write down any operations or work that he is doing in his head so that he can get full credit for his test. We completed an entire chapter review, and discussed how to show work for each problem that we did so that he would get full credit."
"Today was a pretty good day for this student. After her flash cards, she completed one of her four math homework sheets, which she did with no issues. We then read one of the back issues of a children's news magazine that her teacher had given her. I really appreciate how the student is starting to care about what she is reading."
"Today the student studied for his Social Studies exam on Thursday. He reviewed the study guide and than also worked with the 5 countries and their capitals for tomorrow. He was focused and worked hard today and did a nice job."
"We spent the entirety of our session reviewing/studying for the Unit 4 Math test. The student is a very willing student and a joy to work with. There is only one Math test left in this school year and only one full week of school left. I look forward to the progress we can make over the summer in preparing for 5th grade."
"Assessment of his recent skills reveal that the student needs to enrich his skills over the following information: 1. Sentential logic; 2. d/f between odd and even looking numbers; 3. Ones, tenths, hundredths, thousandths: a. Identification and b. Rounding; 4. Advanced organizers and more practice with the logic of these; finally, 5. graphing/ordering of pairs, and sets of numbers. He's able to acquire mathematics quickly and with 100% mastery and facility so long as someone is scaffolding the process with him; moreover, rote or ordinary, non-textual mathematics is easily completed, so long as he "shows" his work in the process."
"Tonight the student worked on counting $1.00 worth of quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies. She also added coins to get the total amount on the flash card. She is doing great at identifying coins and telling how much they are worth. Super job! We also added a paragraph to her story, My Trip to the Zoo. She did a super job tonight and was very attentive!"
