Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student reviewed the processes of multiplication and division by drawing pictures depicting equal groups. She also followed the division algorithm to do one step division with remainders and learned how to check her answers. She practiced verbally how to read numbers to the millions period and also reviewed rounding numbers to the hundreds place. She worked very hard and is showing lots of progress in her understanding of mathematical processes."
"The student spent the session fully engaged and working hard. We continued working on multiplication. I used manipulative blocks to help her understand the concept of groups of numbers, and she got it by the end. She correctly figured out the pattern inherent in the multiplication."
"The student spent the session working on another page from her school that focused on addition and subtraction with large numbers. We then spent the remainder of the time reviewing from her summer workbook, practicing long division."
"The student started by doing a page in his summer multiplication packet, focusing on the 8 times table. As I corrected that work, I had him complete a multiplication frenzy sheet. He wants to complete the the problems in his own way, which is very complicated and time consuming. I emphasized that multiplication is about addition, and that if he doesn't know the answer of a problem, he can go to the last problem he knows and add from there. I showed him a few multiplication tricks for the 9, 10, and 11 times tables."
"The student started school this week, so we went over her Math homework. Many of the concepts that they are covering are skills we have worked on in our sessions. The homework was on place value and comparing values of digits of different place values. This was confusing for her, so her mom asked me to explain it to her. I walked her through the steps and she completed the homework. I then gave her extra practice problems similar to the homework. She showed some frustration, but we worked through it. Then we did facts flashcards for multiplication and subtraction. For Reading, the student retold what she had read on her own. Then she read a few pages, retelling and predicting."
"The student started the lesson off by telling me she had a test in math and she made a 92! We both were so excited!!! We went over each question and talked about the 2 that she missed. She is rocking in math! We then practiced more on money and then moved to multiplication working on the 1's and 2's. After math, we read in the book, "Sugar Plum Ballerina." She continues to work so hard and it is paying off. Super job!"
