Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We had a fun lesson today. We began reviewing notecards and writing the student's full name out. We progressed in the workbook as well. When prompted by me he is able to sound out words. For examples, if asked the first letter and it's sound, he can answer correctly. I will keep urging as I truly believe that is how the most improvement will be made."
"In this evening's session, reading comprehension was addressed. Specifically, the student and I worked on a homework task that included chapter readings from "The Mouse and the Motorcycle," by Beverly Cleary. The student worked on the development of open ended questions based on her reading. Within this homework task, discussions about reading genres, particularly fiction, realistic fiction, and nonfiction, story elements, and citing evidence from text to answer questions were integrated. We also worked on reading skills like tracking and dividing and reading multi-syllabic words during our reading."
"The student and I started reading a new novel, Walk Two Moons, and we discussed the beginning of the novel. I asked her comprehension questions that mostly dealt with inference. I checked her placement exam practice work and she is doing better overall. She has more timed practice for next week and I asked her to underline the evidence that supports her answers in the text."
