Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I did reading diagnostic assessments and learned annotation as a reading strategy. We also practiced summary, fluency, and comprehension concepts before we were done."
"Began grade 4 reading and comprehension segments. The student does well on the quizzes (16 of 20 correct in two sessions yesterday)."
"Student and I reviewed his reading of Wonder. He remembers the story well, and I am proud of him for being so diligent in his reading. We spent this session working on graphic organizers to help him remember this required text at the end of the summer. He created a character relationships web, identified key traits for seven of the characters, completed a Venn diagram of two main characters, and drew a book summary organizer for Wonder. Overall, he needed some prompting for critical thinking and analysis, but he did quite well. When prompted, he could correctly respond to analytical questions. On more basic level questions about plot content, he could almost always respond correctly without prompting. Overall, he understands this novel well. He will need to review his notes at the end of the summer to refresh his memory, but he should do well on any summer reading assignments at the beginning of the school year. We spent the latter portion of this session choosing his two remaining summer reading books."
