Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed material for the student's Friday test on integers, transformations, and coordinate planes. We also reviewed some information for his upcoming history test on America in the late 1800's."
"We worked on a practice test from the student's textbook so that I could see where he was. Then we talked about the structure of each of his classes and went over his grades on the school website."
"We started working through the student's new math book at school. It is the same topic covered as the old book we had been working with, but it is a different publisher so we are starting from the beginning. We are going through each lesson individually and just working ahead as there is no chapter review to be able to skip faster. Some of the topics we covered include: parallel, perpendicular, and skewed lines and planes, slope intercept form of a linear equation, slope, y and x intercept, greatest common divisor, and equations of parallel and perpendicular lines. She was familiar with all of these concepts except for skewed lines, but she understood it completely once I explained it."
"I met with the student to go over spelling, reading, and the first half of her math homework. She read a reading book, practiced reciting, and orally spelled her weekly spelling words. She completed her math homework."
"The student and I covered word problems only. The word problems were used to develop the student's ability to acquire pertinent information and solve based on context clues. We will focus on doing at least 1 word problem each session for the remainder of the semester."
"The student and I worked through his drill book, checking and correcting the homework I'd assigned last week. He still seems to be having a bit of trouble with multiplication--while he understands the concept, he still makes minor errors from rushing through his work. He had a similar problem in addition/subtraction that he overcame, so as long as we keep working on his multiplication, I am confident that he will improve. As we've run out of the more challenging pages in his drill book, I created a homework sheet of twenty problems for him to work on, including five word problems. If he scores an "A" on this homework, we will move on to division. If he does not, I will create further homework sheets for him to work on, tailored to the types of problems that he misses."
