Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I discussed her fascinating project and very much seemed on the same wavelength about the changes I suggested. I am very excited for her!"
"The first session, we went over Their Eyes Were Watching God. We talked about the book and she answered some questions about what she read. She wrote out answers to all the questions. The next session, we found vocabulary words from A Raisin in the Sun that were unfamiliar to her. She tried using context clues to define the words before we looked up their actual definitions. She then read The Story of an Hour and answered questions on it. We talked about Freakonomics and how we will work on that next time. She is going to get the two books she needs for Tuesday over the weekend."
"We reviewed and finalized her technical essay and teaching styles and instruction. We then worked on a lesson plan for a class she will be teaching this coming week. We completed each section of the lesson plan. For next week, the client will work on her reflection essay. Our next session is Thursday, the 18th, at 3PM."
"We continued to work on the student's writing with a timed evaluation of a topic and review of her homework. We also discussed strategies to improve her organization, and will focus on that going forward."
"The student and I set up steps to use notes, fill-in-the-blank sentence frames, scenarios (like to many variables in choosing characters, events, plot and theme), and saved on a Google doc for further independent work."
"Today the student and I worked briefly on another summarizing exercise, after reviewing the one he completed for homework. He has been doing a good job following directions in completing his homework assignments, and his work is of good quality. He seems to be enjoying the feeling of sensing that he did a good job with his work. We spent a bit of time talking about adverbs, and also worked a bit on an assignment."
