Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student did very well in his session last night. We read another excerpt from Beowulf, filled out an ongoing character chart, reviewed vocabulary words and answered comprehension questions. He remained focused and thoughtful throughout the session, but we will still continue to work on his argumentative and analytic skills. Specifically, I would like him to be able to independently explore complex concepts within the text that go beyond basic plots points. We will continue to emphasize techniques for this thought process in future sessions. I look forward to working with him again on Wednesday."
"Today we continued working on creating good study notes from the Geography textbook (paraphrasing the assigned reading material into a readable study guide) The student is working on keeping up to date on the assigned reading material so he is ready for any quizzes/tests. He is very positive about new study & note taking techniques that I am showing him & shows good enthusiasm. He is showing more confidence & independence as his notes are becoming more succinct & in his own words."
"The student and I worked through his study sheet in advance of a grammar quiz that he'll have in school tomorrow. We found a separate packet online for additional clarity. As I taught him through it, a huge change happened in him -- he finally seemed to understand concepts, rather than individual exercises. With an additional hour of review on his own time, he should be in good shape and has a one page study guide / "cheat" sheet to review before the quiz."
