Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we focused on multiplication. We reviewed her times tables and then worked on IXL. She then read to me out loud from her book, A Series of Unfortunate Events. She is showing improvement in her multiplication. I have observed that she is also a strong reader."
"Today, we read quite a long chapter from the student's Jewel Fairy book. We made a chart of each fairy's stone and what the fairies teach to be able to refer to later. Today, we also focused on summarizing in our comprehension notebook. We're both really enjoying the book and follow-up activities together!"
"Today, we went over the concepts on her math homework. She is working on rounding to the tens and ones. She had to map it out on a number line, as well as write it in an equation. We also reviewed previous concepts that are being spiraled into the assignment. We worked on counting and adding money. We spent time reading, checked reading comprehension, and then we worked on vocabulary. She was attentive and did a great job. She gets a homework pass for tomorrow for completing all her assignments since the beginning of school. She also showed me 3 other certificates she received for being a great student."
"Today, we were able to review her first Math test of the year, which she took yesterday. Although she still struggles some with her basic multiplication facts, she has learned all of the new concepts covered to date this year."
"Today, we worked on his division skills. We played 2 memory games with the cards. The first game we only used numbers that were divisible by 2. The second game we used cards that were divisible by 3. Each time a player turned a card over, he/she had to say the equation with that card's value and give the answer. For example: if the card drawn was a 6 the player stated, "6 divided by 2 equals 3." He definitely needs to practice his division. Today was a good start because he enjoyed the learning game."
"Today, we worked on understanding math properties, so the student can now use those to solve problems. We reviewed the words for her spelling and vocabulary tests. I will go over all her words for these lists at the beginning of the week, from now on. Finally, we corrected answers in her reading packet. Half of them were completely wrong, but others needed minor adjustments. She already knew the correct response when I asked her the questions in quiz form, without rereading the passages - she recited the sentences almost verbatim. This means she does not have any problems with reading comprehension; she just needs to be more careful when writing the answers."
