Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We first reviewed some writing and reading comprehension skills. The student has a few materials but I will prepare reading comprehension passages with questions for our next session on Monday. We also reviewed his multiplication facts and basic division. I instructed him to practice specific times tables by our next session on Thursday. Overall he has a great attitude about his work."
"I worked with the student on his division problems today. He understands the concepts quite well, however he gets a little bit confused on carrying the leftover number. When he focuses however, he seems to really hone in and grasp the process. We also need to revisit his multiplication tables to ensure they stay sharp for him."
"Student 1: math facts, spatial and mathematical comprehension through basic shapes and forms. I left her with a small practice and homework assignment. Student 2: I covered basic sentence structure. Student was able to remember and recall from previous knowledge. His attitude was positive about the material we were covering. I left him with extra practice of the same material we covered. Concerns: none."
"We really underline how the student needs to read every question carefully and pay attention to the details of the problems put before her in this session. We're working on this by making sure to stop and ask ourselves what the question is, and what is the answer that they want each time. We've also been tackling as much math as possible. This subject, where a skipped digit or dropped decimal can be the difference between a right and wrong answer, really highlights for her how skipping ahead or not being careful can cost her in the long run. She's definitely taken that lesson to heart, and I'm very encouraged by the fact that when she makes a mistake and it's pointed out to her, she corrects it immediately and goes forward. She works hard and wants to get better, and I'm sure she'll succeed!"
"We reviewed basic algebraic concepts that the student will learn in the upcoming academic year. One of the first concepts students learn is "What is a Function?" To practice this concept, we looked at various graphs and tables to help us determine if the set of numbers were a function or not. Next, we worked on the concepts of domain and range. The student was able to find the domain and range of a function through looking at a graph or a table. Lastly, we reviewed math concepts that he was working on last school year, which included FOIL, multiplying/dividing fractions, point-slope form, and finding the slope."
"We reviewed chemistry concepts of significant figure and the atom. We covered his vocabulary words for next week's exam. We reviewed math problems with radiant, revolution, linear, and angular speed. I emphasized preparedness and doing work ahead of time."
