Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the exponent rules and went over his scientific notation notes. I had him work on a few practice problems and fix his note examples. We then worked on the rock cycle and the types of rocks. We went into his yard, found some rocks and classified them as igneous, metamorphic, or sedimentary."
"We started working on some double digit addition. He has come a long way since we started. We then moved into place value review for his assessment this week. He did very well with this as well. We ended doing an intro to fractions which he will start learning this week. Overall, it was a very successful session. He still struggles with focusing on his assignments."
"We talked about Geometry and learned about finding the area and perimeter of triangles and rectangles. We started off slow; however, the student caught on and began solving the problems beautifully with complete understanding. As usual, the student was eager to learn and got excited as he began to understand the material! Way to go! Positive reinforcement and building off previous sessions! I am excited for our next sessions and watch him excel in another topic!!!"
"We used the a math practice textbook today, as she reported that she had no homework. She says that they are at Chapter 2, Section 4 or 2.4. We studied Whole Number Multiplication and Division, and we used our skills to attempt to complete a math crossword puzzle. At first, it seemed difficult to her, but she said she wanted to try to finish the whole thing in the hour. She did very well, and the only mistake she made was transposing two of the digits when entering the answer into the puzzle. "
"We went over addition and multiplication of fractions, and we saw how all of this is related to ratios. The student is doing much better. It is evident that he has been studying on his own during the week."
"We went over an assignment from class that dealt with adding and expanding numbers. She struggled more with adding. She started to catch on to the addition, but I can tell she'll need more time to get the hang of it. However, she understood expanding pretty well."
