Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student's mother requested that we focus on reading and I was planning on splitting the session between reading and math. Her reading is improving. She asks questions about vocabulary and I quizzed her on some words as we read. During longer essay responses, we discussed and planned the responses. During the next session, I think that we should continue focusing on reading. The student will respond well and retain grammatical rules and conventions when they are explained to her, so I will see if she can recall these rules during the next session."
"Even though the student is in 2nd grade, we completed a 3rd grade packet of reading passages. The focus for this hour was on sequential text in an informational passage on how to build a birdhouse. He comprehended how to use the references in a picture and align them to the steps in the passage."
"The student worked further on her reading ability. She read a 20 page booklet at an upper 2nd grade level. Though she did struggle with some of the larger words, she was able to read through the entire story and interjected her own comments about what the characters were doing during the story. As the story was longer than most and she is still working on her reading speed, reading took up most of the session. However, she was able to answer the comprehension multiple choice in the time remaining. We discussed the answer choices and she did a good job selecting the correct answer on her own and providing me with an explanation regarding her answer choice."
