Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student worked on a homophone worksheet. He also analyzed a poem. He provided some great insight into the meaning of the words in the poem."
"The student and I per the request of his mother worked solely on reading in helping him properly enunciate words."
"The student had all his spelling words correct. He was pleased with himself. I think the key was to reduce the number of words he had to study at one time; I lowered it from 8-10 to 5 of the words from the "most misspelled" list. When we work in the spelling workbook, the lessons each have 15 words, but they are easier and focused on the phonics of building sounds. He's had few problems with studying 15 at a time in that context. So, we'll trade off on the spelling--sometimes using the book, sometimes the list. We then did a crossword puzzle on the "Mummies" book just finished. He did very well in remembering the new vocabulary words and only needed help with the spellings. Next, we started his new book by reading Chapter 1 of "The Pirates at Noon." Also, we did a nonfiction reading comprehension exercise on the origin of piggy banks. He did fairly well on the article questions and very well on the vocabulary portion. To end, we began the next spelling workbook lesson on consonant blends."
