Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"One hour diagnostic session. The student is a good reader, but he gets shy reading out loud. His writing improved throughout the session as his confidence grew. He is eager to tackle that more in future sessions. I have asked him to check out a library book for us to read together next week."
"Topics: Reading, sounding out words, new word definitions and spelling. Progress: The student's performance on his homework was thorough, and I made sure he understood what the different words meant and how to sound them out. I also had him read every part of the assignment, so I think he gained a lot from it. He has been able to sound words out, and many times get the word correct. I will keep emphasizing this in every way possible in the future. We also finished the book that we were reading last week, and the student was very pleased and interested. I checked out a new book, and I will continue to scour the libraries for some new material for the student. He said "I enjoy books that have problems, and then have solutions." He cares a lot about the quality of the stories he reads. This is a great sign, and while it may be tricky for me to find books for him, I think it is worth it."
"The student and I did reading work and then worked on his typing skills. It became very clear that he needs to start working on typing on a regular basis, so we will add this into our routine."
