Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student worked on the reading from last session and used the same strategies. He focused a bit more on using context to help figure out the meaning of unknown words. We also looked at a few strategies that should help him bridge the gap between his reading comprehension and his test performance. Finally, he worked on revising a paragraph he'd begun in a previous session. He added details and rearranged a pair of sentences in order to produce a well-developed, cogent paragraph."
"For this session, we worked on the creation of introductions and conclusions for persuasive essays. In particular, we focuses on maintaining a professional style with writing. We went over how directly addressing the reader or using a more conversational tone is not the correct way of writing this type of essay. We also discussed making and defending arguments. Overall, in our time together, we have made great improvements in his writing style and essay composition."
"We continued preparing for his assessment test working on practice set one in his workbook. Task three included reading a long passage and responding with an essay. Key concepts highlighted during the session included being aware of time constraints while being tested, and how to brainstorm to find ideas to write about."
