Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered homophones. The student struggles with reading. She liked the stories and we played a fun, frog homophone game. I used my dry-erase board, notebook pro and she wrote notes in her journal. She passed my end-of-session test on homophones."
"We worked on root words for the first hour, going deep into detail about what kinds of words are derived from the assigned roots, as opposed to similar looking or sounding roots. (For example, the root nom- can mean "law" as well as "name"; economics is derived from the former meaning, whereas nominate from the latter). We then worked on social studies, discussing Lewis & Clark's expedition, and the role of the mythic West in American history and culture."
