Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session, the student and I spent approximately half the time practicing reading out of several easy reading books (specifically, at word recognition and sounding out the vowels of more difficult words) and the other half practicing letter-writing. He was cooperative throughout the session and approached more difficult tasks with notably less anxiety than in some previous sessions. He did quite well in terms of recognizing words. As always, he has his workbooks to practice with if so desired (his favorite is the book that uses the erasable marker, which we used during this session)."
"The student and I discussed the book of Jekyll and Hyde in the session. I brought a summary of the story, including a list of important characters. I taught her how to tackle big, complex readings - first, you read the summary to get the gist; then, you list the characters and their relationships; finally, you read the book to put in the details marking key points as you go. This is a very efficient and effective method to tackle such assignments. After she went through the summary, we discussed the characters and the different crucial moments in the story, which was followed by a Q/A session."
"The student and I reviewed her homework. We ran through her sight words twice. The first time she got 7/11 right and the second time 10/11. We also read 6 sentences using her sight words, and she was able to read them with a little help from me. Next, she and I reviewed her math homework. We counted forward to 15 and then backwards from 15 and answered some math word problems for her homework. After this, we did a spring word search together and read a Dr Seuss story to celebrate Dr Seuss' birthday."
