Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on the student's daily reading assignments, some math review, and an article review. We will continue to work on reading as well as math next week."
"The student finished her phonics review as well as reading. We also had time to practice her vocabulary words and spelling. She still needs to practice distinguishing vowel sounds, but we will continue to work on that."
"Concepts Reading: Predicting, using headings, identifying main ideas and supporting details. Math: dividing by 10, multiplication facts."
"Practiced reading for fluency with support prompts as needed for both students. Also reviewed site words with both students; underlined specific part of word that needed practice for Student 1 and continued to organize Student 2's site words."
"Today, the student and I completed an annotated outline for an essay he has on The Lord of the Flies. He did an excellent job connecting the sources he found, to his main thesis statement. We followed an example outline provided by his teacher, which I think was very helpful. We will look at it again with a fresh mind over the weekend, but overall, he did an excellent job!"
"For this week, I first worked with the student on his organization. He received a handout on skills for proper organization such as using the planner, utilizing earlier daylight hours to prepare a full 24 hours before an assignment is due, setting realistic goals, and more. Next, the student informed me of a multiphase history assignment that will make up a good portion of his 4th marking period grade. The first part of the assignment involves setting up a very specific thesis question. I worked with the student on narrowing his ideas for his selected period in history. He was assigned to write a paragraph of the revised idea, which he sent to me. I will provide corrections, and based on those corrections the student must go back and revise the paragraph in order to turn it in on Monday."
