Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on a schedule to prepare him on how to work on his book report and what questions he should ask himself as he reads."
"The student did her homework, read reading passages, and answered comprehension questions. The passages and questions were based on fourth grade material."
"In today's session, the student read two books: "The Berenstain Bears' New Pup" and "Ballerina Girl." She struggled with "New Pup" on her own, so we used assisted reading to get through the book. I would read a page or two of the story, and then she would read the same pages back. This helped her get through the book. Shorter words or sight words she was able to read without a problem. After reading, we played a game to see how well she could pick up mistakes. I reread the book, intentionally making mistakes as I read. She would then say "stop" whenever she heard me make a mistake, and then had to tell me what I did wrong. She missed three mistakes I made, but I was impressed at how well she was able to pick up all of the other mistakes and to identify what the word should have been. Next, the student read "Ballerina Girl," which was an easier and shorter book. She did well with this book. We ended the lesson practicing sight words and words that she seems to struggle with. She did very well reading today."
