Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student 1 worked on inequality equations and graphing. We also reviewed how to solve word problems involving inequalities. With Student 2, we worked on simplification of radicals and solutions of right triangles using Pythagorean Theorem."
"Student A: We reviewed the student's math homework on unit conversions. Student B: The student finished her homework on periodic trends in Chemistry. Although initially confused about several of the trends, she caught on easily and did very well on the homework."
"Student and tutor covered square numbers up to 10, 3/4/5 digit addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts. Student shared that she has a hard time working on math problems that are written out vertically. Tutor and student talked about strategies to complete the math problem moving the numbers from a vertical to horizontal number line. Tutor and student also looked at upcoming homework this week. The session ended with a review of the multiplication table and practicing math facts playing multiplication war with a deck of cards. The 10's were taken out and the 2 cards were used to practice square numbers. Student identified 3, 6, 7, 8, and 9 as multiple numbers to practice. During the game, tutor noticed student's ability to say each number line faster as the game went on. Tutor shared with the student that one of the goals for the tutor will be to help the student recall all the factors quickly to help when the student takes timed tests in school."
"Student covered multiplication with expanded form, distributive property and started division looking at division patterns. She also went through a series of drill and practice for her 2 and 3 times tables. She will continue to practice the 4s."
"Student one and I worked on a study guide about multiplication and division. He was a little unfocused today, but when he was focused, he did very well. Student two and I worked on computing with positive and negative decimals. She worked well and concentrated on the task at hand. She appreciated a challenge and feedback. Their mom shared with me that both students enjoy working with me and love how I teach."
"Student one and I worked on solving multiple step equations for one variable. We haven't met in a couple weeks, so she was a little bit rusty, but she picked it up very quick. We then worked on adding comma subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions because this is what she is working on in class. She is doing very well with this, and I gave her some worksheets for homework that incorporate two step equations and fractions. Student two and I worked on solving systems of equations by graphing comma which she is working on in class. She is doing great with this. We also reviewed solving systems of equations with elimination comma, and I gave her some worksheets to practice."
