Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Went over the student's corrected work and reviewed the answers that he missed. I go over each answer step by step so he will be able to realize why he missed those answers. I also supplemented his homework with phonics practice."
"With both students, we worked on binomials, polynomials, and exponents. Student 1 and I reviewed parts of every section from the chapter. She worked problems and seemed to do well. Student 2 needed preparation for a test on Tuesday over the same concepts. He completed his homework and reviewed the prior material. He was able to do most problems on his own."
"Discussed how to graph rational functions: vertical, horizontal, and slant (oblique) asymptotes, paying attention to the difference between the exponent in the numerator and the exponent in the denominator. Practiced balancing chemical equations. "
"Today we went over some strategies to help the student with his PSAT's. We did some vocabulary practice and some reading practice. After we finished that I timed him taking one part of the PSAT practice exams in the review book. I started going over the questions and will finish next time we meet, along with some more review questions."
"Today we reviewed all of the short vowel sounds, closed syllables and sound blending. Digraphs were introduced as well as short vowel rules. We practiced fluency with new sentences and began a new story. Data was taken on short vowel sounds in the medial position of single syllable words when presented in isolation. The previous story was sent home for additional practice. Visual supports will be added next session."
"Today we covered three passages on literature, art history, and natural science (via an extended metaphor). The student is getting more comfortable with decomposing difficult sentences. He is focusing on his exams for school at this time."
