Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The main concentration of today's lesson was preparing the student for her vocabulary test. She built a list of about twenty vocabulary words to study at home before the test on Monday. She also completed a homophones worksheet."
"The student worked on his reading packet from school and finished all but one story. He also worked on his math homework, which dealt with decimals and shapes. His mother showed me his daily grades for math and they have gone from 0 to 70%. He is engaged in class again and regaining his confidence. He has some reading examples to finish for next time. We are also going to work on a strategy for his learning his multiplication. I showed him a couple of videos that he could use to help him learn his states and capitols, as well."
"The student and I worked together on his reading fluency and comprehension. He had read one of his library books and really enjoyed it. He was able to describe the plot in detail, and he seemed excited to have done so. Later, he read most of the book to me and we worked on reading slowly and carefully, taking his time to read the words correctly. We looked over his homework reading packet and examined the many words he had circled. With careful reading and dividing words into syllables, he was able to decipher them. The student has a great attitude and seems really willing to put in the necessary time to improve his reading."
