Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student worked on 4 digit subtraction with regrouping and she did wonderful! We also worked on 3rd grade math with multiplication the beginning stages with arrays, math sentences, and just touched on starting to do the math facts. We will continue with math facts next week. We also read from her Goosebumps book for reading fluency and we will do sight word testing next week."
"The student worked on her math homework that covered place value and word problems. She also practiced finding the value of mixed coins and bills. We then worked on a reading passage and comprehension questions. Then she read a new book that she had chosen from the library. I have seen a huge improvement in her attitude towards reading. She enjoys Junie B. Jones books, and is growing in her reading skills."
"The student worked on her multiplication fact drills and completed it in about 19 minutes. She also reviewed and completed a worksheet regarding analyzing a chart and answering questions. We finished our time by working on decimals and place value. She seemed to understand and was left with decimal problems to complete before our next session."
"The student worked on her multiplication facts - 1's and 2's. She did a great job! We also talked about how 2 x 3 is equivalent to 3 x 2 but a different order and instead of 2 groups of 3, it is 3 groups of 2 in the second one. We talked about how the answer is the same when you are using the same factors. She continued with money and did a super job of counting and adding coins. We also continued reading the story, Sugar Plum Ballerina, and she did a great job answering the comprehension questions. She is to work on her math facts daily for 10 minutes, as well as counting money. She will also continue reading every day during her summer break. She was attentive and did a fantastic job tonight!! I am so proud of her!"
"The student worked on identifying addition facts with one digit by one digit and two digits by two digits using a red flag for an incorrect answer and a green flag for a correct answer. We reviewed odd and even numbers and the definition for sum and difference. We found the sum for even and odd numbers and completed a worksheet about odd and even numbers. We used her tablet to complete math games online, specifically grade 3 games. She is to complete a making change worksheet for next session and continue to utilize the above mentioned website game."
"The student worked on identifying complete sentences. Then, he created a circle map for his next writing piece, 'Rolling in the Grass.' He also worked on subtraction word problems. He understands the word problems, knows the correct operation to use, and is able to solve the problem. However, he reverses the digits that the value of the numbers changes. For example, he wrote 32 as 23. I suggested he draw a check box next to each question, and once he completes the work, he should check his work paying close attention to the digits and place value and check off each question."
