Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had a multiplication test the next day, so we reviewed the multiplication of the numbers she was going to be tested on. She seemed pretty well prepared, but the extra repetition helped. Overall, it was a good session."
"The student had a short homework assignment that dealt with pace value. We went through it quickly, and she felt very confident with the material. We also spent some time with multiplication and division in two digits. She was able to complete problems very quickly"
"The student had a spelling test today and had one wrong. It seemed that she missed the word only because she was writing her spelling words too slowly during the test. So, I gave her a suggestion to help her the next time that happens. Also, I brought a book for her to read about a dog named Biscuit. We took turns reading it. She enjoyed that. She also had a book (third grade level) that she wanted me to read to her about princesses called the "Royal Treasury." For math, I went over the mistakes that she made on her math test. I had her write the four problems that she got wrong on index cards. She used a different color card for each problem. I then asked her mother to put the cards around the house somewhere so she could see them all weekend. I told her to study them, and that I would quiz her on them on Monday."
"The student had a successful first week of 4th grade at a new school. He was tired out and did not have homework, so we played several games that helped him practice his multiplication. He was in a good mood."
"The student had a unit math test that she completed but needed to make corrections on to increase her score. We talked about why she got certain problems wrong and corrected her mistakes. We used the remaining time to review for her upcoming social studies test."
"The student had a worksheet that consisted of division problems with both simple integers and decimals; he then had to correlate his numerical quotient with a corresponding letter to complete a puzzle. We also started studying for a geography exam he has on Friday. He and I did some writing about his day at school and studied science flashcards for a quiz he has coming up. "
