Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student began writing a paragraph based on a previous reading. He used his pre-writing strategies to generate a topic sentence then worked on structuring his support and supporting details. The student then took a first look at another reading. He accessed his prior knowledge of the topic and made predictions about what he would read in the text. He's done a good job of applying the strategies so far."
"Began initial session by reviewing grades and goals (currently making C's, would like to be A-B honor roll). Worked on revising and editing 100 word essay for language arts, focusing on adding detail to clarify ideas, using FANBOYS to craft compound sentences, and minor spelling errors, which were all recognized and easily fixed once they were pointed out. The student might need to work on writing fluency, as she would repeat words or lose her place during sentences after long pauses in writing. Will follow up with language arts teacher at her school for more specific guidelines re upcoming tests."
"Today we reviewed the student's persuasive essay and different approaches on writing it effectively. I can see the progress in his writing skill as he can organize his thoughts and put it in writing. Still needs to work on spellings and grammar. We also covered lessons on different types of sentences(e.g.; imperative, interrogative, exclamatory, and declarative). He was also asked to identify the different aspects of paragraph writing. Hw was given on singular and plural noun and narrative prompt essay."
