Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed test taking strategies with a 4th grade text and then worked on fractions with the same denominator."
"The student and I practiced working with the distributive property. She showed a lot of improvement and got 100% of the distributive property questions correct. We also completed a lesson on turning fractions into decimals and then into percents. She tends to make simple mistakes due to a lack of a foundation knowledge, such as confusing multiplication tables. We went over how multiplication is the same as doing successive addition and how if she isn't sure of one she can go to the highest number she does know and add another set. We also continued work on area, and completed a lesson on the area of a triangle. She is familiar with the area of a rectangle or square but not of a triangle. We went over the concepts of base and height and how the area of a triangle is 1/2bh or bh/2. After completing math review we went over the parts of the essay and sample questions. She picked an essay question and is completing an essay for our next session that we can use to edit and improve."
"The student and I covered verbal reasoning, mathematical achievement, and reading comprehension. She will be taking a practice test for extra practice."
