Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today with the student our theme was revision and editing. I brought two paragraphs that had lots of grammar, spelling and flow errors, and we edited them together. We also did a few exercises with irregular verb agreement and dialogue practice. We spent the majority of the time editing his Personal Narrative that he wrote for homework, using several rubrics and editing checklists to go through it very carefully. We also went through the list of sensory details we had made last week and tried to find places where we could add in more. His homework for this week is to re-write the draft, including all the edits."
"We went over his last test, which is even better than the one before- 151. Nice. Closer to that 160, and we still have 2 months to go. The student is definitely stepping up and getting his work in, so I'm definitely happy with how things are going."
"Went over Analytic Reasoning and Logical Reasoning. We will work hard on getting her to set the games up better. She also needs to work on conditional reasoning. Showing improvement but still needs to increase speed. It will come with practice. "
"Today we reviewed both Tuesday's and Wednesday's homework. Right now he is going over algebraic and geometric proofs. From this summer, he said that he felt great with the algebraic proofs and struggled more with the geometric ones, so we focused our attention there."
"The student studied for her exam. I also gave her goals for Thanksgiving. She has talked to her teacher about the group project. Hopefully, with the revisions to her research paper, the movie review paper, and group project she will have enough points for an A."
