Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I went over equations, exponents, percentages, fractions, areas, perimeters with the student. She couldn't solve them on her own so I did some examples to help her understand. I also covered some reading comprehension tests and a vocabulary test where I had the chance to give definition and examples of words to know."
"The first student and I went over reading comprehension and math today. I taught him a method for tackling reading comprehension passages which included noting the main idea of each passage as he read and then writing the main idea of the entire passage after reading. I taught him how to predict answer choices before looking at them which I think shocked him regarding how spot-on some of his predictions were. I think the method will help him on the test as long as he uses it. We reviewed the conversion between improper fractions and mixed numbers, and once we started doing it again, he remembered how to do it and did well with it. We also changed fractions to decimals and he did well with that. The second student did great on the reading comp homework I gave her, so we didn't review that today. We did review adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions again. We also reviewed fraction, decimal, percentage conversion which she did very well with. I went over some math sample test questions with her. She was able to answer the questions without my help."
"We had a great session on writing and reading comprehension. The student hesitates with the main ideas of the passages though he is a great reader. He is really coming along with his comprehension and his verbal skills."
