Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Concepts covered included identifying story elements given a short story. We also worked with geometric shapes identifying the number of sides. The student also was introduced to 3D shapes in conjunction with each shape square, rectangle, triangle, etc. We will continue practice working with geometric shapes. He did a nice job today."
"During the first part of the lesson, I did a review on finding the mean, median, and mode of a set of data. After I demonstrated a problem, the student was able to solve problems on her own. The next part of the lesson was spent on naming the coordinates for a specific place on a coordinate grid. She was able to solve the problems with very little assistance. The next part of the lesson was a brief review on changing a mixed number into an improper fraction. She was able to do those problems independently. Finally, I reviewed a few multiplication facts with her. She did very well with that part of the lesson also."
"During the first student's lesson, we went over drawing angles with protractors, order of operations, and adding mixed fractions. He learned all this very quickly. The second student and I worked on geometry and finding the area and volume of different shapes."
"During this session I continued to teach the student about measurement. I asked her to think of half inches as similar to when someone is 7 and a half years old. She understood this and can now measure objects to half an inch. For the rest of the lesson, I taught her how to read analog clocks to increments of 5 minutes. She should be fine after doing some homework as practice."
"During this session the student and I reviewed and discussed how to properly add and subtract decimals using Singapore Math. After reviewing some of his school tests and classwork, we realized that this was an area where he was struggling. At the end of the session, during our review, he had a better understanding on how to add and subtract decimals."
"During this session the student worked on two by two digit multiplication using different methods of multiplying. She was most successful with the rectangle method. After guided practice, she completed 4 out of 4 problems correctly and independently. She showed improved attention and effort this session. Way to go!"
