Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Started a new unit in math going over addition and subtraction with three addends and subtrahends. Did reading comprehension and writing practice. The student should have a language arts test by the end of the week."
"Student 1 and I covered her homework assignment based on solving inequality equations and expansion of basic exponents. Student 2 and I covered questions with word problems on finding missing sides of right triangles using the Pythagorean Theorem."
"Student 1 and Student 2 needed homework help. Student 1 is having difficulty adding & subtracting integers. I was able to give her some helpful strategies to use. Student 2 is a struggling reader. He has difficulty completing his math homework because he can't read the word problems and directions. We will continue to work on reading strategies to improve his decoding and comprehension."
"Student 1 and Student 2 shared the session tonight half-half, which was the plan. Student 1 worked on math; solving equations with several variables and solving for one of the variables embedded in the middle of the others. She did well on these and had little difficulty with the ones involving fractions. Student 2 and I worked on graphs in her social studies book! We then looked at her science textbook online. We will be doing a chunk of the textbook each week, with her reading it and then us going over it together and working on the review sections at the end of chapters and sections."
"Student 1 worked on comparing quantities. He was extremely fast and accurate. Then we worked on some word problems. Student 1 is becoming an excellent note taker; using what he knows to solve the word problems correctly. He also wrote down the math sentence showing his work. Student 2 worked on word problems and spelling. He did a fantastic job on a challenging word problem and was even able to explain the process back to me. He knows his addition facts quite well and breezed through an adding game. Great job to both!"
"Student 1 worked on reviewing many topics. She did a Mad Minute and did really well. Student 2 worked on converting fractions to decimals and struggled; we will continue to work on this later. Student 2 also did a Mad Minute and got 100%. Excellent effort on the part of both girls today!"
