6th Grade Tutoring FAQ

For many students, sixth grade marks the transition from elementary school to middle school. This shift may also be the first time your child has changed schools, making the process difficult both academically and developmentally. New classrooms, teachers, peers, and expectations can quickly generate the perception of a foreign atmosphere. Resources and assistance that may have been readily available in elementary classes may be reduced or absent in the new, challenging middle school environment. The new schedule in middle school may require that your student shift between teachers for different subjects and periods, giving him or her little sense of the homeroom connection central to elementary education. If your child is struggling with the jump in academic intensity and simultaneous developmental shifts occurring during this year, a sixth-grade tutor may be able to help.

The introduction of multiple teachers and classrooms can also lead to difficulties due to a lack of organizational skills. Being organized may not have been much of an issue in elementary school, but the complexity of new classes, schedules, and teachers make organization extremely important. A private tutor can give your child helpful tips on how to get and stay organized, which is a skill that will help them throughout their academic career and beyond.

The student and I worked on studying for an upcoming science exam (earth science). And we completed her math homework on statistics and graphing. She will begin reading the book "Number the Stars" to catch up on the work she missed while being absent from school.

The student and I worked on math and decided to focus on word problems, since he has some trouble converting language into equations. Second hour with his little sister was also math, since she's working through a math book her teacher recommended.

We reviewed the student's old schoolwork, and answered some questions that he had on his tests and homework. Specifically we covered writing (how to develop a paragraph) and math (multiplications and averages).

The student is finishing up school and had summer math problems to review. She did well on the majority of questions. We will be practicing these more over the summer. We also reviewed her summer science experiment project and social studies/ELA project; I explained some scientific definitions and we organized how she can structure her writing responses.

Online 6th Grade Tutoring review by John
We did math and reading comprehension problems from the SSAT review book in order to diagnose and teach the student. I gave him a copy of the test we used so he could work some problems during the week before our next session if he so desired. He basically understands factoring, multiplication, division, and basic geometry. His reading comprehension is good.

Online 6th Grade Tutoring review by Jessica
I worked with the first student on force, motion, and energy. We spent most of the time talking about potential and kinetic energy as well as balanced and unbalanced forces on an object. He has a good understanding of how motion and energy work. During our math review, we worked on arithmetic with decimals. He did very well on addition, subtraction, and multiplication but struggled a little with division as he had not learned it yet. The second student and I also talked about force, motion, and energy. She was able to list all of the types of energy and to talk about examples of each. We mainly talked about mechanical energy and the details of what happens when an object is in motion. For math, we worked with decimals doing addition, subtraction, and multiplication. She was very good at all of it but needed some guidance with multiplication. She did excellent with estimating.
