Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I am working with the student on reading fluency. I want her to get comfortable with reading books and enjoying the experience. She is still having trouble with B, D, P, G, but we are working through this. She is always willing to try, which is excellent."
"Today we worked on science and reading. We worked on comprehension questions and worked on a writing assignment for science. The student was able to think critically and formulate good answers."
"He worked on his Math and Literacy homework. For math, he had to write all the number bonds of 10. He did very well with this. For Literacy, he read his spelling words 3 times aloud. He then had to write a sentence for 3 words without starting the sentence with I. I noticed during this time that most of his letters are written from the bottom up and not top down or they do not touch the appropriate lines (tall letter-top line, etc.). After, we reviewed his spelling words by reading them again and spelling them a few times. I read the vocabulary cards to him because the sentence were too hard for him to read. Afterwards, I gave him a handwriting assessment to see which letters are made incorrectly. We did both capital and lowercase letters. We will do handwriting every class session for 5 minutes on how to write the letter correctly. Then, I gave him a writing assessment/prompt to see how his sentence structure was when working independently. He needs assistance with expressing his ideas into two sentences and rereading to see if it is a sentence and putting punctuation at the end of a sentence. Next session, if he doesn't have too much homework, I will give him the DRA formal reading assessment."
"The student continued working on division with double digit divisors and dividends. She then analyzed a complicated article concerning a new fossil discovery in Colorado and answered questions regarding the information."
"Student A and I worked on his spelling words for this week. We did a practice spelling round, clapped out the syllables, and then spelled them with our arms! At the end he seemed much more confident with the words. Student B and I worked on multiplying and dividing decimals."
"We spent the hour reviewing for the student's math test. We covered each section in the chapter one at a time, and only moved on once he had a complete comprehension of each concept. As long as he remembers to read carefully for the question being asked and keeps his computational work neat/organized, he should perform well!!"
