Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student read a section about the Civil War in the Time for Kids program. He completed a composition about upcoming trips he will be taking with his family. We reviewed his math homework. He also completed six sections about grammar on an educational website and read from the novel "Captains Courageous.""
"Today the student and I ran through practice problems. I could tell that she was having difficulty with the multiplication and division, so we spent some time going over the basics of multiplication and division. We spent a lot of time looking over the word problems trying to figure out how to get what they were asking. She knew what the problem was asking."
"Today the student started by pointing to each number, from 1 to 100, on a number chart and saying its name. We then play number BINGO. We followed that up with reviewing the sight words that she knows. Then we reviewed letter names and sounds. She then completed two beginning letter worksheets. Next she played Tic-Tac-Toe with beginning letter sounds. The only letter she had issues with on this activity was c. She would identify each /c/ sound as the letter k. I corrected her and she understood which words begins with what letter."
"Today the student worked on adding and subtracting decimals. She does well. She continues to make steady progress regarding multiplication, and she does quite well with word problems."
"Today the student worked on her math diagnostic test online. After she worked on the test, we spent time reviewing perimeter, area, multiplying with money, and multiplying and dividing multi-digit numbers. She needed help with adding and subtracting multi-digit numbers with decimals, and the characteristics of a line, line segment, and ray. She has a workbook that she completes on her own for homework. She is also reading The Big Friendly Giant by Roald Dahl. She is always excited and ready to review and learn new topics in math, reading, science, and social studies."
"Today was a good session with the student! He finished proportions, and he does understand how to solve them very well. We then moved onto the surface area of cylinders. We spent the majority of the session on that concept, and since I felt he was still a little shaky, I assigned some research homework instead of problems. He will research area, volume and surface area, and provide me with some examples of problems."
