Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student 1 and Student 2 did incredibly well today. We started with phonics review, and Student 2 and I worked a little with compound words. Then in math, we explored symmetry and did some practice with that. We also worked on reading graphs to answer questions, which both students did very well on! Student 2 and I practiced some three-digit addition and Student 1 and I worked more with subtraction."
"Student A worked on an assignment provided from her school. We worked on counting up to solve subtraction problems. She is making strides in understanding this concept. We will begin working through problems to prepare for the state assessment exam soon. Student B worked through the materials provided in math. She understands place value operations well, and completed the work with ease. We will be moving on to more challenging content in the future."
"Student A: Coin identification, adding money, subtraction with borrowing, and writing numbers in various ways were worked on. Student B: Adding fractions, simplifying fractions, and exponents with base ten were covered. Student C: Adding and subtracting integers, evaluating expressions, and absolute value were worked on."
"Student one did her math homework multiplication and division with decimals. She did very well. She then worked on her Science homework. She needed slight prompting to stay focused on the task. Student two worked on writing. I offered him interesting and engaging topics to write on. He had difficulty choosing what to write about. We also looked at 6th grade writing prompts. He finally chose a topic, did a planning page then was stuck. I modeled how to write a good introductory paragraph, and then he finally was able to write off that. "
"Student one is making amazing progress with his multiplication! It was great to see a livelier side of him with the other student there. Student two is a little further behind in the multiplication, but I know she has not been studying as much as he has. We also spent ten minutes on writing. There is still a lot for the kids to work on in that area, so we'll keep going over it."
"Student one: He and I read out loud together. He did exceptionally well sounding out hard words. He also did very well with his comprehension of what he was reading. He was able to pick up on small details and make sense of the plot while reading out loud. His inflection while reading out loud has also greatly improved. Student two: he and I worked on multiple step word problems, which he was able to break down easily. He was able to recognize which functions to use when and how to separate the steps in a problem. We also worked on area and perimeter, which he quickly grasped and was able to solve easily."
