Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we worked on word problems involving the addition and subtraction of positive and negative numbers, along with standard mathematical problems. I also mixed in some area/volume/perimeter problems for the student to review for science-related math."
"Today went really well overall. First, student one and I practiced sight words and writing letters that she struggled with (b, d, f, g). Student two and I worked on compound words and he did very well. In math, we worked more with symmetry. We also worked with addition and subtraction within 20. Student two did more work with graphs and then we worked on word problems. Both students did an excellent job today!"
"Today, along with working on our foundation skills, we focused on adding and subtracting 2-6 digit numbers. The student likes doing his math mentally, so we did some problems. I introduced a new subtraction technique when subtracting large numbers that he seemed to like. We can practice more moving forward. Finally, we worked on his math word problems. This is an area we need to focus on moving forward as well. One area that he is going to practice more outside of tutoring is subtracting and borrowing. The student likes to borrow all the way across instead of one number at a time. His mother is going to work with him on this outside of tutoring."
"Today, he and I worked on his homework sheet which included a math assignment and a writing assignment. He did a great job on both assignments. In the second half of the session, we worked on English test prep. He read a short essay and answered several questions on that essay. We then went over his responses and talked about some strategies."
"Today, I had the student work on regrouping for 3 digit subtraction problems. He is still doing computation with hands. I am asking him to spend 5 minutes each night practicing addition and subtraction flash cards. For Reading/English, we worked on -s, -es plurals."
"Today, I helped student one first. We worked on IXL, reviewing multiplication. She is doing very well and remembered most of the tricks I taught her. Next, I assisted student two. We worked on her math homework. She is learning long division. She was able to do it with ease. We then started working on her math project."
