Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The older student: Spelling worksheet and "re-spelling" sheet. We also watched a few videos in Spanish that focused on basic concepts of the language, then we did some matching games on a Spanish learning site The younger student: Watched a variety of Spanish grammar/learning videos. I also helped him with estimating percentages for math."
"Student A- We practiced division word problems with money and also 'normal' non-money problems. We discussed how for a one word problem, you can represent it with multiple math problems (division, subtraction, multiplication, and addition). I asked her to keep practicing her math facts because she is still relying on skip counting and making minor errors. Student B-we worked on his weekly word problems. I guided him through some of the ones he was stumped on."
"Algebra: We reviewed the chapter 1 test and saw that the student had made significant progress from the last time that she took this test as a diagnostic. We then reviewed the homework and discussed keeping equations balanced when solving for a single variable, either through addition or multiplication. French: We reviewed the work that had been completed. We then practiced creating sentences using various different subjects, the verb "avoir" and different objects. We also practiced the "ne . . . pas" negation with the sentences. At the end, we read a short play and worked through comprehension questions."
"The student informed me that she did well on her exam. We worked on her math homework mostly, and completed her Spanish assignment. She is an awesome student and we will work more on her learning the formulas for her current math unit."
"We covered proofs and finding angles involving parallel lines. The student will practice and memorize some notes that I left him. I told him to look at the diagram and given information, as well as the relationship between the angles and parallel lines, to help him come up with a plan for the proof."
"The student and I started this evening by reviewing what we had talked about last week. The student said that he felt he had done well on his recent test--I'm hoping to go over his test results with him when he gets it back to see what progress he's made on his problem areas. Next, we turned to the big topic his class has been going over: the imperfect tense. We looked over the forms of regular verbs and the irregular forms of sum and possum, and I asked him to produce a full synopsis for 5 additional verbs. We then worked through some of the exercises that covered the imperfect. I asked him additional questions on the exercise sentences in order to review case endings and meanings. We finished up our session by talking about Roman history and the Roman roads."
