Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over a practice exam that the student was given. The exam had questions on sequences and conic sections."
"We worked on the teacher's lesson to guide our tutoring session. We covered estimating and round to the next 10 and 100. We discussed the value of this skill in the real world using it to add, subtract, and multiply. We compared the actual answers to the estimated answers. Continuing with the real world applications, we worked on word problems involving purchases. I also taught the students how to count back change."
"The student and I went over testing strategy as well as English/Verbal today. We did analogies (focusing on particular roots/prefixes/suffixes), as well as straight up vocabulary problems, which he says is his weakest area. He is doing much better than when we started, and it seems his vocabulary is improving since he started to study it with flashcards. I'm happy with his progress."
"The student and I had another great session! We worked on fractions, map reading, division, and counting money. She did an amazing job with all of the concepts and had a great attitude throughout our entire session. I am so happy that she is enjoying each new concept that is introduced, and love her enthusiasm with completing concepts that she already knows! I will continue to bring new, exciting things for her to try, while building her knowledge of the concepts that she already knows."
"This session was heavily focused on literature. The student had already begun her homework, but had a few questions about the story. First, I read the Latin myth out loud to her. Then she answered the last few questions. Next, she read a chapter of her book aloud to me. She stopped frequently to annotate."
"The student and I focused on multiplication for this lesson. She did three multiplication sets; the first two were timed. She completed 100 problems with numbers 0-3 in 3:45. She then completed 100 problems with numbers 0-6 in 5:15. Last, she did an untimed set of 100 problems with numbers 0-9. She struggles the most with the multiplication facts of numbers 7-9, so we will do repetition of those next time. She also completed one page of division problems where she was asked to recall the multiplication facts she had just practiced. For spelling, I read to her and asked her to spell words from the text periodically. I focused on asking her to spell words with double vowels, like "loud" and double letter words like "swimming.""
