Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I began by reading her book, Ella Bella Ballerina, and I noted some prefixes and suffixes to work on with her. We then switched to finish The Bear's Vacation. I noticed her fluency had improved! After listing and classifying words with the endings ous/us/uss and the prefix /re/, she continued to read Ella Bella Ballerina. She was much more engaged this evening, and I informed her mother that I would be bringing some harder books next time!"
"During yesterday's session, the student and I practiced her spelling skills through writing a holiday card for her classroom kindergarten teacher. We wrote a first draft, so I could see how she sounds out words and spells them on her first instinct. Then we wrote a final draft together where we took a closer look at spelling and letter composition. At the end of our session, we read part of a book together, so I could get a better sense of what reading materials to recommend for her going forward. We are going to finish reading the book this Friday."
"Tonight we began by reviewing and correcting the math homework I had assigned him. We then started some more math work. We ended by setting up his homework this week and having him write out instructions for a board game he wants to create (I hope he is able to give me a page or two of pure written work)."
