Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We continued to work through the student's study guide for the upcoming state tests. He was able to work through most of the math questions easily without much prompting. He definitely seemed more engaged with the material this session. Next session, we will finish up his study packet and work through some other resources."
"In math, we covered multiplication, long division, and fractions. In reading, we covered main idea and theme. I assigned a passage with questions to practice getting the main idea and theme. I will also assign him 5-10 math problems."
"The concepts that we covered specifically was mostly going over test-prep skills and foundation skills in both Math and English. The student was very receptive and listened very thoroughly throughout the session. His multiplication skills have increased and he is also developing an advanced understanding of division."
"The student and I mainly focused on capitalizing proper nouns, and we worked a little bit on shorthand division. He seems to have a firm understanding about when words should be capitalized (for instance, proper nouns, titles, events), but he sometimes goes a little fast and should focus on slowing down and paying attention to each word. He has shown improvement in math! His short division skills were excellent, and he really paid attention to each part of the problem."
"The student, his mother and I met for a preliminary session in which I got a feel for what he's doing in his classes, what he will be doing in his classes, and how he learns best. He is struggling with reading (more specifically comprehension), so I would like to see him read and engage more with what he's reading. He is having a few problems with math, but I think I'll be able to diagnose those problems better when I see his tests/ assignments. I look forward to meeting with him again after his mother has her parent teacher conferences."
"We covered: Reevaluation of student goals and assessment; update on lesson planning and tutor's responsibilities; guidance on appropriate classroom behavior and participation; math instruction involving exponents; reading comprehension involving time expressions and the future tense."
