Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I continued to practice for his upcoming test, and he continues to impress! Today's story was realistic fiction, which does tend to be a bit less challenging than non-fiction texts, but he did an excellent job. I created a CR prompt since none where included, and he and I worked through a well-organized response that made sure to include specific text support as proof. I am continuing to focus on the effective use of transition phrases within the structure of paragraph, which better help to remind him of the purpose of each sentence. We spent the last 15 min working on some grade level vocabulary, and he found this rather easy."
"Student's mom is concerned that his reading is not up to par with the other students in his class. We read together for half of the session and then he asked to work on multiplication tables. We practiced multiplication for the second half of the session."
"Computer skills and test prep was our focus today. We also focused on reading. We used a few pages from his book to do some practice for his upcoming test. While he read, I outline questions for him to answer afterwards. We did spend time at the end of the lesson on luminosity."
