Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered his homework, which included rounding numbers. This was done with a specific digit or rounding the entire number. He was shown how rounding could be used in a practical manner - in figuring out a tip for a food bill. We also continued practicing simple multiplication for speed tests. A win came when the student stated that he is doing much better at the speed tests in class. We also practiced addition of decimals, mostly less than one but some over one. Finally we reviewed Roman numerals."
"We covered Lesson 1.7: Combinations and Comparisons. Reviewed the work that the student had already done, and she explained her thinking in each problem. Worked through her homework together. She has a solid understanding of these concepts and did very well with little or no prompting from me. Then, worked on her spelling list for test and discussed and practiced strategies to remember the words and how to break them into manageable pieces. She was surprised I didn't give them to her in order, so it would be good to practice words out of sequence. "
"We covered Math, Vocabulary, and Reading Comprehension. The student answered questions on the story "Tuck Everlasting." The student struggled most with multi-step multiplication. The student had a positive attitude. Strategies used for Math were step repetition."
"We covered multiplication tables. It seemed as though the student was forgetting them if he does not practice them regularly. He had a good attitude, but he really needs to work on memorizing multiplication tables at least half an hour each day."
"We covered multiplying 6, 7, 8, & 9s. We took a practice spelling test. Both students did well, however student one needs to study a little more before a she takes her assessment. We reviewed for their History assessment. Student two recited his memory verse nearly perfectly."
"We covered place value of decimals and multiplying by powers of 10 with decimals. We also reviewed working with fractions. The student has a good foundation in decimals but still struggles with decimals in 10 thousandth place and smaller."
