Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed math and reading. We went over strategies and I retaught the concept on fractions. We planned to use the Stop Light Method to writing to help improve sentence structure and use of details."
"We worked on the student's spelling words. She struggled at first, but then towards the end seemed to have a better grasp on most. The focus of the words were irregular plurals. I had her write the singular of each word then match it to the plural form to identify what changed in the word. We also worked on a writing assignment, which the student seemed to really enjoy. In addition, we worked on a bit of math review of fractions. The student did well with both of these."
"Today, we began a novel study of Mr. Popper's Penguins. The student completed the first two chapters. I had the student read along (silently) while he listened to the audiobook. This 2 pronged technique will help him with comprehension, and also help him with fluency. I noticed an improvement in comprehension at once. We worked on writing good sentences, and also on backing up ideas with examples from the text. We also added some spelling words to our list, and worked on multiplication facts! Busy!"
