Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on subtracting with decimals and solving multi-step problems on her homework. We also focused on adding 0-9 numbers. The student will be practicing adding with 8's this week. She can continue to practice with extra Math problems."
"We worked on the boys' homework today. They are in different classes this year in school. The student had division problems to figure out with drawings. He then needed to write story problems for division facts. I helped him quite a bit with this. He also used cards to divide quantities into groups. He finished the math homework, but did have some reading left to do. He also had word problems involving division, a little more difficult to do. Since he had already completed his homework, I checked it and then gave him multiplication facts 6 through 8 to do. He did great with this. He also did a sheet of division facts which I gave him. He knows that multiplication and division are connected."
"We worked on the student's math homework on rounding today- I had heard that it had been a rough lesson at school, and she was clearly frustrated with working on this concept. She understood it when I got her to slow down, which took a bit, but I think she is closer to remembering the process. We also read a bio of Amelia Earhart and read the character descriptions of Aviatrix, the play we are reading."
"We worked on the student's math test, and we reviewed expanding numbers and rounding and addition and subtraction. She has a good attitude and tries very hard. We will review these concepts again next lesson."
"We worked on word problems from his homework that involved subtraction, addition, multiplication, and division where appropriate. We even practiced "translating" his answer into sentences that could answer the word problems."
"We worked on word problems with ratios, including converting ratios to fractions and using blocks to visually work through the problems. We used a white board and he was able to get most of the questions right, quickly and without much guidance. He did get stuck on some questions that involved multiple steps, but was able to figure them out with guidance and while using the blocks for support."
