Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student is reviewing for the SAT in school this week. We worked on her packet (mostly phonics and reading comprehension). I gave her some strategies for test-taking. We will be working on phonemic awareness/reading comprehension in our future sessions."
"Today we worked on reviewing rules for two syllable words to determine if the vowel sounds are short or long. A review will be needed of this next week as well. Today we practiced fluency skills by playing memory fluency practice. The student did well with his accuracy and with repeated readings of his sentences, his fluency increased. For the first time, we applied skills to read a low readability high interest story."
"The student did well in her session last night. Her math homework was much shorter than usual and therefore we had more time to focus on reading and comprehension, vocabulary and writing. We read from Junie B. Jones, a book she had read before, but we were able to walk through it slowly and I asked very specific questions related to plot and characters. She did well answering them, especially when we looked at specific passages together. Finally, the student seemed to really enjoy the writing activity we did, in which I gave her a sentence with blanks and she would fill in words that would make sense. I look forward to working with her again."
