Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We began working with the phonics book that the first student ordered, and I think it will be a wonderful addition to our lessons. Student 2's progress has seen marked in this one lesson alone with the book, and it is a more fun way to approach lessons. I anticipate that I will advise that we order the next workbook in the series once we finish this one. I assigned one page of homework from the book by our next class."
"The student and I read a short non-fiction text about mummification today and he improved his fluency by 35 seconds after the third read through. He also easily scored a 10/10 on the comprehension questions! Then, we read another chapter in No Summit Out of Sight and discussed it. I assigned three chapters of reading to him, along with a paragraph summary of each chapter. He should do his reading aloud to practice his fluency and expression."
"The student talked to me for the first few minutes of the session about his spelling words and how he felt like this week's words were easy for him - and indeed he spelled them all correctly when I quizzed him. We played the game with the colored squares and the words, and he seemed to like it a lot. It is the most enthusiastic I have seen him about spelling yet. Some of the words are challenging for him, which is good. He is making a lot of progress, and I am happy to see that he is more enthusiastic than he was in the beginning. He asks a lot of questions, which is also great!"
