Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today's session with the student went great! We reviewed adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators, improper fractions, and mixed fractions. Next, we worked on adding fractions with unlike denominators. He had difficulty finding a least common denominator because he's still learning his multiplication facts. We discussed ways to find a common denominator and work through the multiple steps of adding and subtracting fractions. He expressed that the hardest part about adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators is memorizing the steps used to solve the problem. The last 15 minutes of our session were used on multiplication flash cards. Overall, he continues to be positive and upbeat about learning. His want-to-learn attitude allows him to improve in our math sessions. He will practice adding and subtracting fractions on a worksheet for homework."
"We covered reducing fractions, least common multiples, prime factorization with exponents, and adding and subtracting negative numbers. The student needed help with adding and subtracting negative numbers. She was very receptive toward working out the problems."
"We covered writing division answers as mixed numbers and multiples. The student was profoundly accurate with executing the word problems in his math textbook. He is using the answer sheet provided by his teacher. He is required to include the units in his solutions. He is working well with this template. He was extremely engaged in the session. He has a 100 average in sixth grade mathematics. He will continue to use his textbook to maintain his flawless performance. It was a productive session."
"We focused again on decimals. The student had struggled with the expanded form of decimals, so we took the time to practice the expanded form of decimals. We also spent some time working on rounding numbers."
"We focused on multiplication skills by completing several interactive activities to simplify the information and help them connect easier. We began to work on the multiples of 12 using a skip counting method and practicing addition with carrying over. They were able to see the simple addition of 2's and 1's when calculating multiples of 12."
"We have made some great progress. We will be finished with the arithmetic book by next week! I took her accuplacer worksheets home with me so that I can rewrite the questions and have her retake it next week to see how she does after we've gone through the entire book."
