Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent the majority of today's session working on reading comprehension. The student has a tendency to rush through his reading and doesn't always take the time to fully understand and absorb material. He made notecards for his upcoming presentation on Thomas Jefferson, and finished up a math assignment that focused on identifying types of lines."
"During this session, I administered a 4th-grade assessment, spanning the topics the student covered during the year. Using this assessment, I will create an individualized plan for her learning, to be used for remedial tutoring during the summer."
"Today was out first session and the student did really well. We reviewed working with decimals, fractions and long division. She has a good command of her facts and needed support with the process. The student did an excellent job."
"The student and I mostly focused on math (primarily division and number lines) and reading comprehension. He seemed to do well. With respect to math, he made common errors most students make. We will continue to work on these. With reading comprehension he did very well - better than I anticipated."
"This session, the student reviewed a few of her multiplication sets, and we resumed practicing multiplication by 2 digit numbers. She did much better than the previous time she attempted it, and was able to complete her set. Over the course of the set, she needed less and less input from me to help her. We ended the session by going over word problems that required her to calculate the remainder in a division problem. She understood the concept and was able to do a few problems on her own once I helped her work out a way to do it. In the course of doing these problems I was able to have her practice long division as well. We will likely continue with division on Thursday"
"We reviewed fractions, and (after encouragement and reminders) he did them well. We reviewed some basic algebra, and a critical thinking problem with angles. We finished the session talking about matter, mass, and properties. We delved into the difference between chemical and physical changes."
