Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student went over her reading journal and finished her Magic Treehouse book and added that to her reading journals so she can write her book report. Then we reviewed simple multiplication and started double digit multiplication. She caught on quickly."
"The student and I talked at tonight's session to assess where she feels she is at. She and I worked on a reading exercise and found that she has a lot of strength in reading context and vocabulary skills, similar to her brother. Spelling did seem to be a weak point, but after the reading exercise, we borrowed words we had just read and practiced spelling them by using flashcards, context, and fill-in-the-blanks, and she did quite well. She showed a great enthusiasm for learning and was always asking to do more. We worked on a word search that contained several vocabulary words from her reading exercise, and I sent her home with another one to work on at her request. The session seemed to go well, overall. I look forward to working with her again next week."
"The student and I started the session with icebreakers! We played Question Ball and My Favorites. In the closing activity KWL, I asked him what did we learn today and he responded, "We learned about each other." For a first session, I would say it was a success. I also assessed his reading competencies with a brief, but thorough, reading assessment. He is an energetic and conversational student with an eagerness to learn. I look forward to the his growth in which we will track collaboratively."
