Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student did not have any IXL to work on. Instead she had some math workbook pages and some reading comprehension pages. After finishing these pages we played a multiplication game on the computer."
"Today, the student worked on her homework. We reviewed reading, math, and science. While working on reading, she read a passage and answered comprehension questions. Her fluency has improved greatly."
"Today, the student worked on her math homework. We were doing word problems for multiplication and division and working out strategies for each. She is getting very adept at determining the difference between division problems and multiplication problems. She is also excellent at seeing how they are related to one another. Today, the strategy that we focused on the most was fact families. This helped her to find the answers to the word problems. She is also working on memorization of facts. She has about 80% of her multiplication 3's facts memorized, which helped her to be more efficient at solving her problems. I left her with the goal of continuing to master her threes, but also to work on her fours."
"Today, the student worked on his homework of dividing decimals using long-division. He has a quiz on this on Monday. Also, he has to write a story about his beliefs about accomplishing his goals. We planned the story out by writing lists of characters, plot, setting, conflicts. He began writing the story and had several paragraphs by the time I left."
"Today, the student worked on homework and we completed multiplication problems online. The homework covered solving multiplication problems, reviewing the power of 10 and exponential form. We practiced multiplying three digits by one digit."
"Today, we continued to study basic math facts. We practiced addition by playing two learning games using dominoes. In the first game we took turns setting up the dominoes for a cascade of falling dominoes. Each time a domino was set in place the players add the bottom number to the top number in a contest to see who can get the answer first. Each time a player gets the correct answer first he/she gets a point. At the end of the game, he felled the first domino to start the cascade. In the second game, we played regular dominoes, but each time a player added a domino to the board he/she had to add the numbers from the end piece dominoes. Lastly, we practiced multiplications between 0 and 5 by using flash cards."
