Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"For this session, I worked with the same two scholars, student 1 and student 2, with the addition of one new scholar, student 3. I have a good feel for the pacing of the sessions, so I am confident that we will do great when we work on the next group of passages."
"The student had some results to share with me from her previous reading tests - some of them were 100%! We worked on vocabulary flashcards, writing in complete sentences with detail to support her point, and reading comprehension questions. We also worked on establishing a physical/tactile reminder to remain focus while working. I left her with a few vocabulary words to finish forming and then practice at home."
"Today we went over two reading passages and the multiple choice questions associated with them. Some of the boys are improving well in preparation for their exams."
"Student 1 and I continued working on his book. We're focusing on slowing down, reading unusual sentence structures, and questions. We're also working on having him recognize when he doesn't know a word and asking for clarification if context clues don't help him figure it out. Student 2 and I worked on his science homework on acids and bases and then his math homework on graphing data points, adding a trend line, and understanding how variables are related."
"Today, the student and I reread a book that we have been working on for the past week. I had her orally retell the story so that we could practice sequencing. She then wrote about her favorite part of the story. After her draft was done, we reread our story to practice proofreading. We looked for punctuation marks, sight words that were spelled wrong, and capital letters that are supposed to be lowercase. She did a great job."
"I am concluding essays with the student. She is finalizing all essays and submitting to college. Overall she is a fine student who performed at a high level with great motivation throughout our tutoring."
