Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I helped the student with her homework. I left her with some practice problems before her test on Friday."
"Today we reviewed the place value concepts I taught him last session. After discussing the diagram together I gave the student some time to familiarize himself with the various place values. I gave him a few problems to test his knowledge and he answered all the questions correctly. Next we discussed weight and mass. I taught him the difference between a pound, ounce and ton. We discussed items that may weigh a pound, ton or ounce. He was very interactive and really good at making estimations about the weight of objects. I also taught him the conversion units between pound and ounce and pound and ton. Afterwards, we discussed prefixes and how adding milli- or kilo- to gram affected the mass. I assigned a few problems from his workbook and he did well answering most of them. I asked him a series of questions in order to enhance his critical thinking skills. I quizzed him on keywords and he is getting better at being able to associate keywords with the correct operations. Finally I assigned some problems that tested his knowledge on fractions and decimals."
"The student and I finished/corrected her school homework today. We also practiced some subjects on Study Island. She did an excellent job!"
"During this session with the student, we reviewed how to do definite and indefinite integrals using "u" substitution and natural log functions. The student has shown a lot of improvement since our first session and has a better understanding of problem solving. She indicated that she feels her class is going better."
"We discussed rational numbers and integers and then went through some integer word problems. I then uploaded a word problems worksheet that had to do with proportions and setting up ratios!"
"Today we worked on geometry. We worked on identifying shapes, identifying angles, and learning how they work together. The student used his addition and subtraction skills to make sure the angles worked together. Tomorrow we will begin work with compasses and protractors to get accurate and easy measurements, to create perfect circles and arcs, and to measure diameters."
