Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In the two hours we were able to work together, we finished her sentences/writing practice. She is showing improvement with her writing skills. After her break, we worked on subtraction and addition word problems. I had her underline keywords that hinted to what symbol (+/-) the problem used."
"During this session, we had to work through the homework I assigned him from the previous tutoring session. I quizzed him again on the definition of prepositions and had him name 6 of them for me. We then read further in the chapter book. I think he has improved his reading skills immensely. When we first started reading aloud, he was not confident and complained about doing it. Now, he is eager to read aloud and he is making fewer and fewer mistakes. He even wanted to read an extra chapter this session which was good news (to me). His attitude for studying sessions has improved. As in the previous session, I would have him stop reading and pick out the prepositions that he saw on the page. I believe this is helping him see how prepositions are used in many different types of sentences. After this, I quizzed him on spelling words. His homework was to practice the ones he misspelled. Overall, it was a good session."
"Meet and greet for the first session. We also read a couple of books to determine reading capability level."
"In today's session, the student and I worked on diagraph and blend sounds, identifying syllables in words, and reading fluency. She did well reading words with diagraphs and blends and identifying syllables in words. She is improving in her ability to sound out words when reading but needs to improve her speed."
"We reviewed all the letters and their sounds. The student is doing much better with letter recognition. We played a game with numbers and counted to 28. He practiced writing the letter D. We reviewed colors and read for 10 minutes."
"This morning, the student and I wrote the letters "m,'' "l," and "s." We also practiced writing the numbers 13 and 20. For the remainder of the session, we used flashcards to practice numbers 1-30. She did pretty well with this and knew almost all the numbers."
