Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on spelling and vocabulary today. I was impressed with how productive he was during our session! We learned new vocabulary words through working on his English homework, which I quizzed him on. His worksheet had three different exercises: matching the vocab words to examples, alphabetizing the vocab words, and then coming up with our own complete sentences using those words. At the end of the session, we began writing sentences using additional vocab words from a list for his Spelling/English HW."
"The student and I worked on a reading comprehension packet that his teacher assigned him, I added a new dimension to it by asking the student to jot down his side of the debate. Then asked him to jot down the main points of both sides of the debate. After the reading packet was finished, we did a drawing conclusion exercise and summed it up with a creative writing assignment."
"The student and I worked in this week's session on her weekly words for her upcoming spelling test Friday. She and I made flashcards and took a timed quiz, which she did very well at. Overall, she seemed comfortable with this week's spelling words. We also worked on punctuation of sentences (comma usage in listing things and commas when using conjunctions). I then briefly quizzed her on her multiplication facts that she brought with her at the end of the session, and she did pretty well. As always, she was eager to learn new things during this session and she made good progress."
