Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Concepts covered included adding and subtracting with negative numbers. I introduced converting decimals to fractions and fractions to decimals. We worked on adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators. He was focused and did well today!"
"During the first part of the lesson I reviewed the rules for multiplying and dividing fractions. Next, I had her solve problems involving multiplying and dividing decimals on her own. She was able to solve these problems independently. The next part of the lesson was a review of finding an equivalent fraction for a given fraction. After a few examples, she was able to solve these problems on her own. The next part of the lesson was a review of adding and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers. She did very well with these problems. Finally, I reviewed some multiplication facts with my student."
"During the first student's lesson, we talked about measurement conversions. During the second student's lesson, we did some review, then talked about integers."
"During the first two days of the week, student one and I covered reading retention exercises, comprehension as well, and penmanship. We have also reviewed multiplication. We have done exercises to cement the concept of equivalence between addition and equation statements. Student two and I have been covering basic math. We have covered addition and subtraction, counting, and logic. In reading, we have been reading a story together. Her vocabulary is skyrocketing, as well as letter recognition. Reading and listening comprehension is off the charts. She's been a joy to work with."
"During the session, the student and I worked through concepts in language arts and mathematics to prepare him for the next school year. Using a reading passage, specifically one of Aesop's Fables written at a high lexile level for second grade, the student and I worked through complex vocabulary and reviewed summarization of main idea through reading comprehension questions. He was able contextualize the difficult words with guidance from me. Furthermore, the student and I reviewed through his times tables, using a color-by-number page (a packet from which we will work through for the following sessions. He had difficulty remembering his times tables, so flashcards helping him review through such may be of help in gauging memorization."
"During this lesson, I taught the student about matter and its three states: solids, liquids, and gases. I also introduced her to two-digit addition. She thought the science was interesting, as usual, but thought the math was boring. To keep her engaged with math, I tried to come up with real-life word problems. (For examples, if she has 54 jellybeans and buys 78 more, how many does she have now?) As usual, I will send an email shortly with her homework assignment."
