Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on his Math and Vocabulary homework. He did very well decoding unfamiliar words while completing his work. While he was completing his work I was making informal assessments that will allow me to develop the best learning process for him to gain a better understanding of what he reads and skills to learn to work with his Dyslexia."
"The student and I went over a short reading passage of the SAT together. We went over the passage word by word and sentence by sentence. Once she understood all the vocabulary, she could easily answer all the question. And then we went over some math problems. She seems to have a good foundation. Finally, we spent that last 30 minutes going over vocabulary words. I recommended that she writes them down on note cards and try using them in a sentence when speaking."
"2/21 & 2/27: The student and I continued to work on his colors, letters and numbers. He is still staying strong with knowing all of the basic colors. We are working on being able to recognize the two new colors I introduced - pink and gray. During these two sessions we reviewed letters A and B and worked more with letter C. I had him trace some Cs and he did a great job. Also, he practiced writing the letter A without tracing. He did very well and continues to work on straighter lines and crossing the A in the middle. In our last session, I noticed a big difference in his ability to count a certain amount of objects. I asked him two separate times to count and he got both correct on the first try. Lastly, I worked on getting him to recognize numbers 1-4."
"Worked on translating a story from Latin to English. The story was based on the ancient temples of Rome and Greece, and the student did a good job with it. The story also had many relative pronouns, which was the focus of the chapter."
"The student and I went through her study guide, selected ACT math questions that applied concepts for her test to complete, then worked on matrices, triangles, and linear programming. Then we went through her old tests and worked through problems she had questions about."
"We went through Chapter 7 and all the key terms and main questions for each section. The student found some sections easier than others, and we spent time discussing and explaining the difficult concepts so that she had a better grasp of the material. We continue to discuss real-life examples to help her relate better to the material. We also worked on graphs to help explain economies of scale, followed by additional examples."
