Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we went over the student's homework - rounding. We rounded to the tens and hundreds place. We reviewed the rule of 5 and above and talked about how that would tell us to round up or down. This is a difficult concept, and we will work some more on this tomorrow. We also did a little review on the spiraling section and she remembered the identity rule and also knew the difference between odd and even numbers. She worked hard tonight and was focused. Great job!"
"Today, we worked on math and reading comprehension. The first 30 min we spent reviewing the student's multiplication tables. She did a pretty good job, but I think we will continue reviewing this so she is more confident and able to do them more quickly. We then worked on longer multiplication problems. After, we worked on her workbook pages. She did a timed reading (213 words in a minute) and answered questions regarding the passage."
"Today, we worked online for the first little bit, and then we discussed his homework packet. He was looking at simple functions and comparing prices, as well as figuring price per units. He had a little bit of difficulty with understanding different sized boxes and pricing, but he did understand it once we did some visuals. We also discussed his writing for me and some of the things to work on, which included retyping a paragraph, and working on eliminating contractions and numbers in numeral form."
"Today, we worked specifically on word problems. I suspect that some of her struggles with math have to do with reading comprehension issues. This is an area that we will work on more in the future."
"Today, we worked very hard. Both students completed their Bible and History assignments. He completed his spelling homework. He began his weekly journal entry. He struggled with multiply by 8. He struggled with writing his brainstorming about his favorite movie. They both had great attitudes towards completing their assignments!"
"Today's session started well, as the student showed me her first quiz of the year. She got a 17/17 (100%), so she got some stickers as congratulations. We then continued with the same topic her class is still working on, measurements of center. She is doing great with mean, median, mode, range, and as such, she did not need much help during the session at all. The only trouble she had was when there was an even number of data, meaning two numbers were in the middle. I showed her how if there wasn't an easy number for the median, then the two in the middle are added together, and then divided by two. After doing a few more examples where the median was found that way, she completed the problems on the worksheet just fine. To end the session, I gave her a small worksheet on mean, median, mode, range; it is due for next week."
