Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student did not receive her exam yet. She has another exam coming up next week. This time, we focused on the climax of a story. I helped her understand the concept of rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. We went through several examples in her reading packet. We also looked at some of her assignments from English class, where she is learning about summary. She had a better understanding of how to summarize, so I used the opportunity to continue working on climax."
"We worked on the student's ELA assignment, focusing on taking notes as we read and identifying literary conventions like metaphors. Afterwards, the student said that he had no other homework, so we reviewed the science notes that he has taken in class."
"I quizzed the student on his vocabulary words for tomorrow's test. We then worked on practicing for the exam. He read a few passages which were followed by multiple choice questions. We then continued with passages followed by short and extended responses. The last part of our session was spent on reading two stories about people who live unusual lives. He had to choose which lifestyle he would prefer and write an essay stating the reasons for his choice."
