Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"For this session, the student completed Module 3. She was easily able to understand the concepts in Lessons 34-38, including using the associative and distributive properties as well as using the area model approach to multiplication. She began working on Module 5, finishing Lesson 1. She will work on completing more lessons in Module 5."
"The first student and I went over how to find missing numbers in consecutive number sequences during today's session. He did extremely well with the problems we looked at but needs to make sure he reads the questions carefully to avoid making minor mistakes. The second student and I read through his book and worked on reading comprehension and learning unfamiliar words. He did very well but needs to be more vocal about asking the meanings of words he does not know."
"The first student worked on word problems with fractions (improper and proper), the second student worked with addition. Both girls continued to work with their online books, writing sentences about the characters or words in the material they are reading."
"The session was split into math and reading. For the first half, we went over word problems that involved addition and subtraction, and I also checked the pages that the student had completed for homework. She did really well on her homework, and she catches on well to the word problems, highlighting the keywords that indicate which operation needs to be used. I also did a verbal round of subtraction problems with her and went over the concepts of addition & subtraction and how you can make a subtraction problem out of an addition problem and vice versa. For reading, we read several paragraphs and worked on comprehension - asking who, what, where, when and why. I assigned three more of these paragraphs for homework."
"The session was very productive, and the communication channels are open. The student decided to continue with 3 sessions next week and see how that goes. We continued with logs and a bit more of intro to Calculus. His homework is on the log review sheet plus some graphs."
"The student and I are working together on test prep. We are coordinated with the material as well as the platform. Today was a great session; he did well on the questions. I even suggested using a couple of websites that the family has access to."
