Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on pronouns, subject-verb agreement, irregular and singular pronouns, and grammar. We also did editing and revising paragraphs. In addition, I helped the student on how to change wordy sentences to simple sentences. The last 10 minutes of the tutoring session, he did a quiz online to show what he learned. He got 100% on all of his quizzes."
"We worked on ratios and proportions using a classroom software program. I encouraged the student to use paper and pencil to setup word problems. We will continue working on ratio word problems at Monday's visit."
"We worked on reading and responding to questions today. Both the students were able to read on grade level texts and their pretests agreed that they are working on grade level in reading and comprehension. We worked a lot on formatting written responses: restating the question, using text evidence, and adding plenty of details to support our answer. We also made sure to add a conclusion. We corrected their math homework, and both did a great job."
"We worked on reviewing math concepts from last year which included integers. Both girls did well. Then, we worked on reading comprehension to answer questions from the text."
"We worked on the place value chart. The student was given numbers underlined and asked what place value they were. We also worked on multiplication and division. She was very determined to learn and had a positive attitude. She learned various strategies and hints when counting 10s on the place value chart. She had a lot of extra practice. She remembered concepts that I taught her from the last session."
"We worked on the student's math review; he understands significant figures. His inclination is just to memorize without understanding why precepts work, so we try to think through the answers rather than go through them by rote."
