Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent this session finishing up the word problems in her packet that we were not able to get to previously. The student also did 100-question and a 50-question timed exams for her multiplication. She has been doing very well."
"The student and I covered prime factorization and least common multiples. We used online math games to help him find the concepts entertaining. He is progressing with learning when to use prime factorization to reduce fractions."
"The student and I covered the concept of calculating how much time has elapsed, in terms of hours and minutes. We also discussed how to read an analog clock. In addition we covered changes in temperature, using the Fahrenheit and Celsius scale. He seems to need the most help with word problems."
"The student started with her math homework, which was converting units of measurement. Since our last session, she has memorized all of the conversion metrics, which is really impressive! Next, we looked over her essay arguing against zoos. She managed to find more examples to support her arguments, so her essay was a lot stronger. We edited out some grammatical and spelling errors, and then moved on to Ready Player One. She is doing a great job retaining her vocabulary words and putting them into her sentences when she writes."
"Today we worked on math and reading. The student completed a reading activity that had her reading about baking fudge and answering questions about the sequence. She was very good at this and could answer many of the questions without looking back. She got to showcase her reading skills as she read aloud to me with so much emotion. She is a great reader."
"The student and I worked on using a protractor to measure angles. When we started the session, the student didn't really know how to use the tool at all and was overwhelmed with the angles. Therefore, I demonstrated for two angles how to use the protractor and talked her through the steps of measuring an angle. Then, the student tried two measurements with me guiding her. Once she was able to do this on her own with minimal assistance from me, I let her try a few completely on her own. She still wasn't completely comfortable on her own and asked a few questions as we were going. The biggest thing that confused her was the dot on the protractor must always be lined up with the vertex of the angle. She was also confused on how to measure up one of the line segments with the 0 on the protractor. She was feeling more confident at the end of the session, but we both agreed that more practice is definitely needed so I will be working on this with her in the next session."
