Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed her spelling words for this week, practiced her handwriting in her workbook, and read from her Pirates book (Level N) together. She seemed to be more interested in this book, as it had more action and dialogue."
"Today, we went over sight words of various levels and did a fluency test. I gave him a few small stories to read, and one was given to him for practicing fluency. We then talked about some syllable rules, trying to introduce them to him and show him words of that type. We will go over this in more detail next time. I will also be introducing workbook practice next session. His fluency was 47 words a min, which I would like to increase. I think he may benefit from a Saturday session, where it is not after school."
"Student and I started with reading. I found that she made fewer mistakes with harder, longer, or compound words. After we finished reading the book, I gave her the choice of what we would do next, and she chose Mad Libs. She asked me to give her the words to fill in the story and I sounded out my answers so she could write them. We ended the session with much fun and laughter."
