Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The first student and I read from the novel "Loser" discussing vocabulary and plot events. He took a practice reading comprehension test and we discussed eliminating incorrect answers. We also discussed genres of books, specifically mysteries and suspense novels. The second student and I read from a nonfiction book about rocks and minerals. She was very interested in the subject matter and had an excellent session. We deciphered the challenging vocabulary and identified key characteristics from each type of rock. I encouraged her to pick out a new non-fiction book for Saturday's session. The third student and I worked with the letters of the alphabet. He practiced drawing letters and making the letter shapes with his body. We also drew pictures corresponding to the sounds of each letter. For example, we drew a picture of a dog underneath the letter 'D'."
"Read the first chapter of "Shambles" together, writing down new vocabulary and hard-to-pronounce words. Then helped the student write a summary of the chapter, which she did very well on."
"We reviewed her Time for Kids assignment and did a little daily language review at the end. Good work!"
