Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we finished the prompt we started last session. We also began another prompt which we should be able to finish next time."
"Today we went over the writing progress that the student has completed since our last session. We revised several paragraphs and discussed writing goals for our next session."
"We reviewed the student's initial ideas for one essay, then brainstormed and outlined ideas for her remaining essays. Much of our time was spent fleshing out her ideas. It was a productive session."
"I am so excited and proud that the student feels as if our sessions helped her do well on her state tests last week. She still has the science and social studies tests this week and next, so we focused on science yesterday. I have no doubt that she will do well on these next two tests and that she will receive high scores on all those she has already taken. Keep it up!"
"I started the session by giving the student a story starter and having him complete it. He was a little hesitant at first, but did an excellent job with a little prompting. We then started a chapter book about kids on a middle school football team. I stopped him periodically to ask him comprehension questions about the reading. I also had him start a list of characters and their traits. We will continue to add to this as we read on. We were able to read two chapters and review a worksheet about setting the scene for the book. He is enjoying the book and his fluency is starting to improve."
"We covered reading comprehension. When engaged, the student was interested in the material. Next time, we will work on skills related to reading comprehension."
