Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"What concepts did you cover specifically? Working with fractions (adding and subtracting, multiplying and dividing), converting fractions to decimals and decimals to fractions, determining percentages of numbers using proportions. What was the student struggling with most? Solving a problem using a percent proportion. We will cover this next time we meet. What was the student's attitude toward the material that was reviewed? Very positive. Did you include any strategies or study skills in this session? She learned several new strategies on all of the above skills. Did you leave them with any extra practice? Yes, left a math review packet. Any concerns or wins from this session? Absolutely no concerns, the student is a quick study and in an enriched class at school."
"Worked on multiplication facts and exponents. Started 11s. Worked through test. I gave the student homework in addition to the multiplication facts he will practice. He is learning fast and is a wonderful young man."
"As requested by the parent, we went through solving word problems and dividing decimals. The student can solve most word problems without much help. We worked through finding the keywords that tell us what operation to use. Then, we focused more on when to use division or multiplication when solving a word problem. I suggested that she think if the answer is reasonable. I had her solve a few division problems, and she was able to solve them correctly without any help."
"Both students worked on place value to the trillions place. I introduced Student A to a new method of multiplication called the area method, and I will send a link to a video for him to watch if he gets stuck. This should help with the no placeholder. Student B and I also worked on addition facts; she still needs to work on her nines fact fluency. We learned letter e in cursive today. Their extra practice will be different this time around, as they need to work on different skills."
"Concepts covered were math factors, multiplication, line method, and drawing method. The student's attitude was positive. She appears to love to learn and is very intelligent. I suggested some strategies she can use to better remember multiplication tables and division. I gave her some practice problems to complete until next session. She is attentive and does well on the platform."
"Continued working on exponents and logarithms. The student is beginning to understand how the two functions are inverse operations, and how the laws of exponents affect the laws of logarithms. Before our next session she will perform exponent and logarithm exercises 1 through 4 at the end of the chapter, and additional practice problems received in her email. She will also read forward into the section on equations in the CLEP prep book."
