Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today I gave her some geometry practice questions. She was unfamiliar with line plotting and coordinate planes. I will definitely plan to address this at our next session as well. I also taught her to divide fractions - she caught on very quickly. Our reading passages were also slightly more difficult this time. She used strategies I have practiced with her - reading like a detective, inferring before even looking at the questions answers, thinking about setting, main idea, etc. to set the stage of a question. She also did a fantastic job with vocabulary work today - she's really using the strategies I've taught her to tackle these types of questions. We ended with writing. I gave her a writing prompt - "Science Whiz" - and gave her a few minutes to write, then we talked about her writing structure. We will start with this next time, as I want to make sure she is using good topic sentences, details, and strong words to help guide her writing. She is doing a great job with this test prep. I did assign a vocab practice test."
