Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We practiced for the student's math text on definitions, and then worked on subtraction from 1-15. He did a great job on both, and I think he will do well on his test on Friday. We then practiced his sight words, and he only missed one (in a sentence and as a sight word). It was the word came. We then read fly guy, and he did such a great job reading it! He sounded out unfamiliar words very well. We will read it again next week and answer some comprehension questions."
"We practiced ratios using tape diagrams and cross multiplication. He needed reminders on what to do next but caught on to the process quickly. We also completed his health homework, which he was able to do independently. Finally, he had to reread Medusa and Athena and write a brief reaction to the story. He started out strong and independent on his writing but needed prompting and hints to finish it."
"We reviewed addition and subtraction facts for mastery. The student is coming along nicely. I am waiting for the student to finish creating her multiplication cards. We are using addition until her cards are done. The goal is for the student to recognize that multiplication is lot more effective than having to add repeatedly. We will resume math facts on Monday."
"We reviewed and completed her homework. We then had time left, so we did more problems. We covered how to divide by tens, hundreds, and thousands, as well as how to divide three-digit numbers by two-digit numbers, using rounding, estimation, and arithmetic calculation."
"We reviewed area and subtraction of whole numbers, minus partial using correctly labeled units. We worked on rounding numbers and when to use that practice and when it is not good to do so. We did a quick review of median, mean, and mode. She said she taught her classmates the tricks to remember these that we went over! :) We also worked on percentages, how to figure them on sales for her Biztown unit, and how to apply them when dining for tipping. Worked on 10% and figuring other percentages based on that."
"We reviewed basic math skills for 1st grade - numbers (counting to 100 by 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s). We were identifying coins and their value, as well as recognizing shapes and continuing patterns. I will use smaller chunks of time to refocus student often."
