Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on domain and ranges relating to graphs and interpreting the slope of given expressions and formulas."
"The student focused on explaining his mathematical responses. The goal is develop his reasoning and communication of why. He is also increasing his memory of multiplying numbers."
"Today, the student and I reviewed some work from last week to begin with. Afterwards, we focused on reviewing his particularly challenging homework."
"Student A and I started with some place value videos and practice online. This resource has many videos and practice problems for a variety of topics in early math. After working through this online practice, we worked on different types of place value practice, like identifying the tens place and ones place in 2-digit numbers and decomposing 2-digit numbers into groups of tens and ones. Student B and I also started online, but we focused on subtraction. He is doing a better job of focusing on the addition or subtraction sign when doing a mixed practice of addition and subtraction. He has done very well with math facts involving the numbers 1-5, and we are starting to move up to the numbers 6-10. To finish, we worked on several subtraction word problems. He benefits from repeating the story several times before he is ready to solve it."
"Today was a great day for the student and I. She was able to complete a 4th grade assessment reading packet and answer all the questions correctly without an help from me. She also started the 4th grade assessment math packet and was able to do 2 questions on her own, but she did get tripped up some of the concepts, so I plan to give her some more challenging 3rd grade questions and then build our way up to the 4th grade questions."
"The student and I covered a few concepts. First, we played the game blackjack. I know it's a little unconventional, but the focus was calculating addition problems at a rapid rate. I also incorporated a lesson on odds and evens. We then covered money. Based on various monetary rates, the student had to add the value, add the coins that I gave to him, identify if he had enough, and identify how much more was needed. This problems also helps him to get in the habit of computing multi-step problems. We then discussed perimeter and area. He was able to recall some facts. Finally, we worked on writing his name in cursive."
