(Customer): sure (Tutor): Okay. (Tutor): Let me bring up some examples to help us. (Customer): okay! (Tutor): http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/quiz_list.htm (Tutor): How about if we start with parts of speech and parts of the sentence. Do you remember the names of the parts of a sentence? (Customer): im pretty good at this – subject, predicate, (Tutor): Maybe you could identify the parts of the sentence below as I point to them. (Customer): The is an article or adjective. First is an adjective. Sentence is a noun and the subject. Contains is a verb and the predicate. (Tutor): Very good. Yes, this is pretty easy. You know your basic parts of speech and parts of the sentence. Let’s move on to more challenging sentences. (Customer): Great!

Sample session: Observation and Feedback Guest (Customer): Hi! I'm in 7th Grade Advanced Math and we're working on mixed fractions. I can't figure out why I'm getting so many wrong but some right. For example, how do I get the answer to 3 1/6 - 5 3/5? (My Mom is typing this). Thanks! John C (Tutor): Alright, do you want to write the problem on the whiteboard?Guest (Customer): Yes! John C (Tutor): Here let me write it John C (Tutor): Alright, do you know what the first step is?Guest (Customer): I think so. The first step is to find a common demoninator? John C (Tutor): Well, that is a step, but we should probably convert what we have into fractions John C (Tutor): That way they will be easier to work withGuest (Customer): Okay. I'll do that. One moment. John C (Tutor): Sure, Guest (Customer): I get 19/6 - 28/5 John C (Tutor): Yes, thats what I get also John C (Tutor): alright, now we do have to find a common denominatorhGuest (Customer): Common demoninator for both is 30. Stand by for new fractions... John C (Tutor): alright :)Guest (Customer): I get 95/30 - 156/30 John C (Tutor): I dont get 156/30 John C (Tutor): How did you get 156?Guest (Customer): Ok. One moment. I multiplied wrong. It should be 168. John C (Tutor): Oh, alrightGuest (Customer): So, now I'm going to subtract 95 - 168 John C (Tutor): right :)Guest (Customer): I get -73/30 John C (Tutor): It seems like you know what you're doing, maybe the reason you are getting some wrong is simply some small multiplication errors. John C (Tutor): yes, thats what I get. Guest (Customer): Hi! I'm in 7th Grade Advanced Math and we're working on mixed fractions. I can't figure out why I'm getting so many wrong but some right. John C (Tutor): It seems like you know what you're doing, maybe the reason you are getting some wrong is simply some small multiplication errors.
