Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student passed all of her digraphs, short and long vowels! She is now working on vowel teams. She has a few vowel teams before she reaches the end of first grade phonics skills. She added two new sight words and is working on stamina when coming to challenging grade level texts."
"The student did great! Let me know if you guys are interesting in incorporating math into our sessions, as I think she may benefit from this. Today we went over vocabulary in the close reading and sequencing out how to make a dreamcatcher! :) She did so great; I am so proud of her! :) Keep up the great work."
"During our last session, the student read from his fantasy book and we discussed theme and author's purpose. He identified how the author stretched out the tension as the plot approached the climax of the story. He also made a prediction about how the story might turn out. We discussed that he could think of a visual to complete the first page of the assignment for our next session."
"We covered an audiobook and engagement questions, the letter Ff, counting forward and backwards with flashcards, and a word match game with pictures. Action steps include the same process with a different letter to practice."
"The student and I continued to read HP3 today. The book's prose and language have noticeably gotten more difficult as the book progresses. He has largely risen to the book's challenge. I continue to be impressed with his progress."
"During this session, we worked on the student's reading and spelling. She passed her spelling test and moved up to Level 15, so we started working on her learning those words. We also worked with books sent home from her school, focusing on fluency and reading comprehension."
