Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I read more from "We Were Soldiers." He wrote summaries and he completed some worksheets on possessive form and contractions."
"The student and I focused on fleshing out and revising her volunteer essay. We further developed her experiences and accomplishments, worked on stylistic elements, and edited for grammar."
"Reviewed short essays on chaps. 1- 5 of "A Farewell to Arms" and through "His Quiet Charm" in Daniel Wallace's "Big Fish." Essays to be resubmitted at next session. Reviewed SAT vocabulary words; took sentence completion test and discussed results."
"During our session I helped the student complete her homework during the first 15 minutes. She worked on an English and Math worksheet, which she did well on. Following her homework assignment, I had her practice reading more sight words. She has mastered the ones she was struggling with in the past, however, needs more help with the new words that I presented to her. Nonetheless, she did very good. After, she worked on two English worksheets; reading comprehension and spelling. She performed well on both with very little assistance. Her reading comprehension and spelling skills have improved since out first session. Lastly, during the last 10 minutes of the session she worked on creating a story with pictures and short sentences. She has learned how to apply a lot of the things she has learned thus far. Overall, she did great. I left two English worksheets for her to work on until our next session."
"Today session was very productive. We were able to complete the student's math homework and made good headway on his writing assignment. We were able to complete 6 of his 10 questions and he is doing much better at being creative and thinking outside the box. I asked him to send the finished draft to me on Friday; so I can proofread it before he turns it in on Monday. We also briefly touched on spelling and if he takes his time on Friday I am confident that he will pass."
"I was able to finish the appendices for project 2 this morning and emailed those to the student. I worked on the Discussion and was able to list the data points to be covered. Next, I got about half way through the Data and Methods sections by setting out reminders on what should be mentioned. She emailed me back with some information that her professor shared about a change in the outline of the paper."
