Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I covered the differences between the preterite and the imperfect tenses in Spanish. The student worked on some assignments his teacher gave him. Today, he struggled a bit with the irregular verb changes, so I gave him some tips on how to remember the correct verb conjugations."
"The student and I first worked on her homework. She is making good progress with the standard algorithm for long division. She seems to understand what a remainder stands for. The student was able to look back in her packet to easily answer questions about the different biomes."
"In this session, we revisited negative numbers and fractions. The effects of multiplying and subtracting negatives were still an area of struggle, but seemed to improve with continued practice. He seems fairly comfortable going into the new school year. We reinforced key strategies like order of operations, multiplying by a version of 1, and performing multiplications one at a time. We also revisited the number line to help solidify the mechanics of negative numbers. The student's grasp of fraction operations remains much more solid than the first time through, which I consider a definite win."
"The student scored an average of 8.5/10 per passage on her assigned reading passages. This is an improvement of +6. She will continue to work on her reading passages independently, slowly developing speed with her increased accuracy. Today we worked on story problems from the math section. We will review foundational algebra next week, which will allow her to approach the story problems with confidence and accuracy."
"The student worked on the final practice set with active listening and note-taking. We then moved on to flash cards. His homework is to make flash cards based on the notes he's taken so far. Next time we will move on to active reading. He said he's having a lot of fun, and thinks the sessions are really helping!"
"Today, the student needed support with his math assignment. Concepts we covered included converting decimals to fractions; adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators; and comparing whether they are greater than, less than, or equal. He did well today and was able to complete his assignment."
