Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We shifted our focus from math to reading based on the student's latest progress report. We have been spending a lot of time on figurative language. She is having trouble distinguishing between the different types (simile, metaphor, hyperbole, alliteration, etc.). When coached, she's able to identify them in sentences,. We also spent some time this week on the basic parts of speech (noun, verb, adjective, adverb), which we'll also need to continue working on going forward, especially adjectives vs. adverbs."
"I gave the student a diagnostic assessment for reading to assess where the student is in terms of reading comprehension and word recognition."
"This was my first session tutoring the student. We covered language arts, which included spelling, writing, and vocabulary. By the end of the session, he had mastered all of the spelling words. I noticed when reviewing some of his vocabulary that he had done before I had gotten there that he had missed some, so I made a point to revisit those questions and discuss them. He came to the correct conclusion himself."
