Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We started today's session reviewing the student's math homework. I then helped him review for his social studies test on China. We went over his spelling words and also worked on editing a paragraph. The last part of our session was spent on practicing for the ELA."
"The student continued working on her book, and we read the parts together that she wanted to go over. She then did a vocabulary exercise and read some magazine articles."
"The student and I worked on phonetically learning the sight words for pre-kindergarten. We used a puzzle set to learn opposite words (Short/Tall, etc.) He also picked four sets of the puzzle cards and wrote out each word. We read both a Star Wars book and the H Sound Box book. He had difficulty sounding out and remembering the words "hog" and "hen." He said they were hard. We will work on that in future sessions. During our practice session of writing letters, he still struggles with writing "a," "e," "c" and "s" in the correct direction - very common at his age. He also forgets how to distinguish between "b" and "d" - also very common."
