Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"On 3/16, the student and I met to work on fractions. The goal continues to be fluency and ease with manipulating fractions, comparing which one in a pair is larger or smaller, and adding and reducing them. After our review, the student completed his homework."
"Today we started off with a quick review of some multiplication facts that the student needed to make as fluent as her other facts. She was very successful with this, and she loves to start off the session this way! We completed a prefix activity to continue to work on that topic. We also spent some time learning how to reduce fractions using the GCF, which she understood quite quickly. We will continue to review this for the next few sessions. We also selected several books so that we can do a book club together and work on English skills in the context of a novel. She completed her hw of writing an opinion essay, which we will go over next session."
"We focused on test prep by reviewing the test format and tasks. We brainstormed testing strategies for reading/writing, and practiced fiction reading passages and writing short answer responses. We focused on using details from the text to support the claim. The student did very well in reading comprehension. He was able to identify almost all supporting details to answer the open ended questions."
"Today, we were preparing for the student's final exam. Since we could not go over the entire material that will be on the exam, we covered each chapter and focused on any concepts that weren't fully understood."
"We spent the session reviewing for the student's World Geography final exam. She knew most of the information and I had her write down the concepts that she didn't know right away for later review. All of her final grades look good. Very proud of her for bringing up her grades, dropping some bad habits, and turning around her school year!"
"The student has several finals coming up, including math, science and history. We focused on reviewing early math sections to refresh his memory. He really grabs the concepts quickly. We focused on minimizing mistakes that have been made by rushing problems or not paying attention to details. When he pays attention to the little things, he is very accurate and efficient."
