Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This session, we worked on brainstorming. The student has a week to show a rough draft of the planning he did for a 5 paragraph essay. I will send his mother the details. We also worked on reading test strategies for nonfiction and ended with an hour of math--geometry and basic algebra, using the diagnostic score as a guide."
"I reviewed assessment results prior to the session, and the student clarified exactly which areas she wanted to focus on, vocabulary and sentence completion. We did a lot of practice with vocabulary this session. We did a few reading comprehension passages as well, identifying main idea, details, and using the strategy of looking back into the passage to find correct answers. I taught the student some specific strategies to use for tackling both reading comprehension passages and vocabulary questions. Overall it was a great session!"
"The student and I reviewed adding and subtracting negative numbers. We then spent the remainder of the lesson working through factors and multiples, reducing fractions, turning improper fractions into mixed numbers, turning mixed numbers into improper fractions, and adding fractions. I will be assigning her homework from a review workbook."
