Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We began working on the student's fluency today. I used word flashcards and sight word lists to practice her word recognition. Then we practiced reading aloud from one of the 2nd grade level books that I supplied. She especially enjoyed the word flashcards and was enthusiastic about using them. The 2nd grade level book was a tiny bit challenging, but she did a good job of sounding out new words."
"The student did well in her session tonight. She practiced number sprints (times addition equations), read and answered comprehension questions and wrote her vocabulary words in alphabetical order. I was impressed by her retention of plot summary in previous books we had read and her answers to questions for the book we read that session. I look forward to our next session."
"The student was focused and read very well. There were a number of hard words, and she was able to sound them out with only a little help. She enjoyed the story too. When we finished that book, she got another book which didn't really have a story, but on each page there was action and words to say, sometimes with the same beginning consonant blends. Again she read with a good deal of fluency. When we finished that we played a couple of games, one of which she had to spell out the names of characters. She told me the name and I sounded out the letters for her to write. I left her with a book about a princess and her pet bunny to read with her mother."
