Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on sight words - reading and writing them. We read two sound review books. We used a workbook for picking out objects that begin with certain letters/sounds. We practiced writing numbers and his last name. The student repeated the words that appear on the rhyming flash cards and picked three words from each card to practice writing. We ended with reading a fiction book."
"Today, we continued working on revisions of the student's junior research paper. We read through the remainder of the paper for style and grammar, as well as making a few more corrections as suggested by his teacher. I also suggested some areas that could use revision based on the feedback he'd received, particularly looking for places that felt more like summary than analysis. We will meet again tomorrow for some more revision, and in hopes of adding in additional quotes in a couple paragraphs."
"Today, the student had to write a letter to his pen pal. He is getting much better at doing his work."
