Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has a test coming up next Tuesday, so we spent our lesson covering a practice test that his teacher provided him. He has a strong grasp of the grammar that will be on the test, and he is also making strides with the vocabulary. We will meet one more time before the test, on Sunday, and I plan on using that time to study the vocabulary that will appear on the test. I have asked the student to prepare flash cards of his vocabulary list by next time so that we can go over them."
"I taught the student how to effectively study new vocabulary. We covered up the column with English words and went down the side with Spanish, quizzing ourselves. If he didn't know a word, we would study it, and remember for the second round. We did this 3 times, and by the third time he remembered nearly all the words!"
"The session focused on writing and the continuation of assessment. We worked on an assignment for class for which I provided support. Working on this assignment also helped me further the assessment and design lessons based on it. We also analyzed another piece of writing he had already submitted and reviewed for mistakes. One of the concepts covered after analyzing the writing was the subjunctive. The student needs extra support on the subject so we will be devoting part of the session time to this subject. Extra practice was left on the website."
