Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had no homework in her math- just prepare for her math test tomorrow. So, I gave her different problems to work out and put them on my dry board. She got everyone correct! I also advised her about not rushing through her test so that she doesn't make a mistake. I then gave her my own spelling test to prepare her for the one she will have tomorrow. She missed one word- who. So, I told her to study it tonight so that she gets a 100% tomorrow. She also read from her reader- as required for homework. Then, I read a few pages to her from a book of stories from Frozen. That was her reward for doing such a good job on her reading and math. She loved the book, but I had to explain that it's from the library, and it's not ours to keep."
"The student is working on place value in school, so we practiced working between expanded and standard form, and then worked on finding the missing number to practice place value. He did some practice for multiplication, and can answer quickly in a game situation, but then freezes up on timed tests still. Today, he did the 3 times tables and struggled a bit on the regular sheet, but flew through all questions multiplication capture the square, so it definitely has to do with be interested in the topic right now."
"The student practiced multiplication and division on both word problem worksheets and on written worksheets. We also played a math multiplication game that required her to multiply double-digit times triple-digit numbers."
"The student prepared for her Tuesday test on decimals, the commutative property of addition, the associative property of addition, compatible numbers, and compensation. We reviewed pages 103 and 104 in her math book and vocabulary."
"The student read the "Chocolate..." passage and focused on syllabication to decode words. For math, we worked on multiplication with two step problems. The student multiplied two numbers, and then added an unknown to reach a given sum. The student's confidence was high as she realized the steps. I left more problems using multiplication and subtraction for practice."
"The student reviewed regrouping in addition and subtraction problems in preparation for a math quiz. Additionally, he identified the "-ly" words in sentences and categorized them as either adverb or adjective depending on what the descriptor was referring to."
