Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session, we worked on adding fractions using models and units. We also practiced solving word problems using fractions. The student was able to solve using word problems if she was able to draw a model."
"For this session, we went over the student's homework. She had assignments in her workbooks. In her Math workbook, the worksheet was a mixed review of past topics such as conversion, grouping sentence, and division. In her other Math workbook, the worksheet was using reason to solve word problems about adding fractions with uncommon denominators."
"I did some more basic place value work with the student, as well as doing some review of multiplication. We did both single- and double-digit multiplication, and she is doing so well with all of the concepts. I did, however, get nit-picky with her about lining up her place values."
"I helped the first student complete a review of his mathematics homework, which included converting mixed fractions to improper fractions (and vice versa), estimating the product of two or more numbers, subtracting from 1000, adding fractions, multiplying fractions, and long division. The student was more proficient with long division and took his time writing down problems carefully. I showed him how to use individual boxes on graph paper for each digit and to line up digits. I also helped the second student when he needed help with his homework. I created two extra problems for the first student to practice to prepare for his quiz (estimating and converting a mixed number to an improper fraction)."
"I helped the student do her homework that had to do with finding the factors of the numbers given and listing them in order. She finished it really fast and did great! Then we worked on fractions. First, I had her multiply the fractions to make them equivalent, and then I had her create circles to illustrate and understand what the fractions actually mean and to also determine which is greater, less, or equal to. Next, I had her figure out how to determine greater than, less than, and equal to without the circles by listing the multiples and finding the least common denominator (LCM). She then had to multiply the remaining numerator to determine which fraction was greater. She had a good attitude today, and although I introduced a lot of new material this session, she did a great job."
"I helped the student in reviewing and working on her next Math lesson for school. The concept covered was adding decimals using models. She did not have a difficult time while adding the decimals, but did with shading the models. After i explained how to shade whole numbers and the decimals, she understood the concept quickly. From there, she was able to do the practice problems independently. Her attitude toward the material was very positive."
