Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student and I worked on her history homework, which involved reading text and answering comprehension questions. She and I worked on her grammar homework about literary devices in Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry."
"I worked with the student on his independent reading book. We read one chapter. We took turns reading, which helped with him being able to stay focused on the book. After he read I would have him retell what happened. As I was reading, I would ask him to make predictions about what was going to happen next. Overall, he did a great job and because the book was self selected, he was very animated and engaged in the reading as well as our conversations about the book. He was also able to compare and contrast the book to the video game."
"The student received a 15.5/18 on the first part of her test. We are working to improve for her next exam next week. During this session, we looked at figurative language in several passages. Also, I explained what context is and how it is helpful in identifying the meaning of a passage. The student seemed to understand what context is and she was able to correctly answer most of the multiple choice questions correctly. We concluded by going over her vocabulary words, and I asked her to form sentences with her words."
