Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student worked on his 5's and 6's multiplication facts. It took him 3 minutes to complete 22 problems. We will continue to work on speed. We focused on decimals today: converting fractions to decimals, expanded form, expanded notation, identifying decimals on a number line, and multiplying decimals with 10's. He worked super hard today and did great!"
"The student worked on word problems with multiple steps. He also completed a multiplication worksheet. We finished with a division worksheet. He is becoming more fluent with his multiplication and division facts."
"The student worked through problems with elapsed time. I taught her the benefits from using 24hr/military time to calculate elapsed time easily. I also showed her a strategy to use when borrowing in order to subtract. She learned the process quite quickly and was able to apply it with minimal errors. We continue to work on slowing down and double-checking her work to minimize minor errors. She did very well."
"The student worked very hard on mental math with subtraction today. He needs to continue to review the principles covered in our lessons, and especially to take his time and think through the processes required for mental math. All in all, very good work from an excellent student!"
"The student worked very hard today. We are working on telling time and finding elapsed time. She can tell time to the minute but struggles with accuracy since she doesn't have each bold number on the clock memorized (ex. 11->55 minutes). Once she becomes more automatic at this, she will tell time well. We are also working on elapsed time. She is confident with elapsed time when she is adding time onto a given time, but when she is given two different times and needs to find the amount of time that passes, she gets confused. We will continue practicing this skill, but she is doing well so far."
"The student worked very well again this session. We focused our efforts on beginning consonant blends for reading and subtraction for math. He was very receptive to learning new strategies and worked hard to improve."
