Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student did well today. He read a short story about jets and then learned his vowels. The student learned long and short a, as well as, long and short e. He was able to identify the words with each vowel and write them correctly. He continues to learn money. He knows pennies are 1 cent and can identify them and count them easily. Even though he knows how to count by 5s and 10s quite easily, we will work on identifying nickels and dimes one at a time. Today's focus was only on pennies and counting them and labeling them with the 1 cent symbol."
"The student is a very intelligent and nice young girl. We started looking over her textbook for the coming year and working on some new concepts, and I'm excited to work with her and her brother in the coming weeks!"
"The student is able to articulate the concept of percentage and can determine a percent of a whole number and find the missing whole given a percentage."
"The student is adding and subtracting using the base ten blocks and becoming more independent with remembering to regroup for subtraction; adding with base ten was just introduced this session. We did a review of counting coins -and the student is still forgetting names/values in isolation. We will continue to work on this next session."
"The student is continuing his multiplication fact practice. I saw a bigger loss of facts today compared to last week, so we will do 2 days in a row to assist with the memorization. He scored 100% on his practice sheet review of 2, 3, 5, 9, and 10 facts. Today's skills were doubling fours and multiplication rhymes. The doubling was more difficult for him, so the rhymes for 4x6, 4x7, and 4x8 will be helpful. I will be sending him the rhymes to practice more. Today's review topic was bar graphs."
"The student is developing more confidence in her skills. She is still working on understanding application problems with multiplying and dividing, so we continued to draw pictures. She tackled division problems involving remainders two different ways: by drawing a picture and by standard algorithm. We also rewrote simple division statements as multiplying problems with a missing factor. Lastly, we worked on subtraction with borrowing. She is showing much improvement."
