Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over his homework assignments - chapter notes for biology and studying for an upcoming vocab test. I supervised his note taking and clarified his questions on the material and related topics. I proofread his notes and offered corrections. We then discussed the vocab words and possible study techniques that might help him learn them better. I supervised him as he began to make flashcards before the session ended."
"This session I learned about the student's study habits and his past academic rigor; he is a strong learner and good student. The next steps for him are to find out if he needs to repeat math course, and to research a possible history course to take, one that he would like and that would be of great interest. Next session I will provide some study methods recommended for his learning style."
"The student printed out a section of the U.S. Constitution and did a close read underlining important sections. Then she answered some questions about the material. She sent her assignment to her teacher. Then we talked about her upcoming final exams and what to cover in the next few sessions."
"We reviewed the student's spelling words and sentences and math homework. We played vocabulary and spelling games to improve spelling and increase vocabulary. We worked on a math game to improve his mathematical skills. He was able to write all of the words and sentences correctly. He also was able to verbally spell the words. He made a 100 on his math work at school and said that it was very easy."
"The student began the session with grammar and classifying words in a sentence. She took a test on adverbs/ adjectives. She seemed to understand the concepts well. She then continued with spelling and writing down the marking used to indicate the rules. We reviewed phonograms and wrote spelling words down. She also practiced her cursive writing Aa-Hh. At the end of the session, we read about Gilgamesh and Assyria."
"The student and I discussed her homework first. She had to practice her sight words, write a sentence using three of her sight words, read a story, and do a word problem worksheet. She did a great job with each of these tasks. We spent most of our time reading her library book, Arthur's Chicken Pox. She and I took turns reading a page at a time. She grew more and more confident throughout the story and was asking to read two pages after a while. At the end of our session, we worked on some math in one of her workbooks. We did counting money, shapes, and measurement. Overall, great work!"
