Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I had another great session this week! She on her homework, which consisted of a short and long /o/ sound word sort. She used the words to write sentences, do a speed sort, and find the vowel sounds in each. We also completed her 20 minutes of reading. Unfortunately, we did not have time to do math, because her homework took us the whole time, but we were very productive with her reading today!"
"The student and I spent a few minutes getting to know one another. I asked her if she had any homework, and she said no. We tackled some math word problems involving making decisions about whether the answer could be arrived at by addition or subtraction. She was able to correctly identify the operation most times, and with a little help, she arrived at the answers. Then, we worked on some reading comprehension. I encouraged her to learn the multiplication tables from 1 to 12 because it would make math so much easier for her in the future."
"The student and I spent an hour practicing solving equations with variable on both sides. She specifically asked for this support because it was something she was struggling with. She took good notes on the steps and practiced several times. I gave her additional handouts to practice on her own but will be going back for more in-person review in a few days."
"The student and I started off with going over her homework on exponents, which didn't take too long. We continued on with my own lesson of scientific notation, and finished off with Chapter 1-4 of her book, which was mental math. She is now 2 sections ahead of her class."
"The student and I started our session with him working on his homework. He needed to correct his homework and really focus in on his math and reading. From there we read a Thomas the Train book for around 20 minutes. The book was rather long, so I read every other page as to make sure he was not frustrated or overwhelmed. After that we played on the computer working to enhance his skills in algebra and sight words, respectively."
"The student and I started practicing testing strategies for both subjects (read, highlight, show work, cross out, select answer), and it seemed to work quite well. We will continue that in the coming weeks. In math, he finished 5 questions. His homework was an addition activity. In reading, we read through a story about a hippo. His homework was to re-read the story twice and complete a multiple-choice activity."
