Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, the student was introduced to conjunctions and interjections, as well as two more poetry forms, the limerick and the haiku. Then, we looked at what is ahead in the syllabus and set a schedule for the week. The student will review the poems in unit 3, so that we can more quickly cover them in the next session, but be able to spend most of that session on his upcoming composition. This schedule was determined based on the student's strong inference skills when working with the poems in units 1 and 2."
"* Once again we reviewed the past list of 15 words the student has studied, and he knew them all well! * We reviewed the new list we started working on last week, and he knew most of them also! * He did a work sheet having to choose between two words to make a sentence correct, then use the other one in a personal sentence - he did it all great. * He read a story using the vocab words, and answered questions - again, all done very well. * He has an incredible memory and detailed recall!! * He is one special boy!!"
"We began with a review of China words for Friday's quiz. We spent the bulk of the session reviewing Figurative Language and Words of Persuasion. We watched a video on allusion and reviewed several lessons I had found online. Toward the end of the session, we briefly discussed the student's Mythology final project -- a diorama he will create. I asked him to review his China words for the next session and to write a draft description of his diorama; the description is due Friday."
