Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on the student's homework and ELA practice book for the entire session. She has improved greatly with her reading comprehension. She reads well aloud and catches her mistakes more quickly. She is attentive to vocabulary and picks up definitions. Her writing showed improvement as well. She made a couple of mistakes, but recognized them and corrected them without prompting. She can effectively use punctuation, internal clauses, and contractions in sentences."
"Today the student and I read two stories that I let him choose from the library. Today my goal was to track his comprehension and to monitor how focused he could stay for a certain amount of time. He reads really well and understands what he is reading. Comprehension skills are great. He is very self alert. Today was a really good session. We bonded and had more fun today than we ever had."
"The student's ELA exam is coming up, so we focused this lesson on preparing for the exam. We read stories in the prep book and then made graphic organizers to answer the short paragraph questions. I helped her better visualize how to structure the graphic organizers and pointed to her how to answer the questions directly using the graphic organizers. I helped her combine the new method with her usual writing style. Overall, I think she is ready for the standardized exam -- she is doing very well with the comprehension and multiple choice questions, and her writing is on par with 3rd grade writing techniques."
