Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered nonfiction reading (Thomas Jefferson biography) and fiction (his choice, a shark story). Today the student was in a positive mindset and was very open to advice and suggestions for improving reading. We worked on predicting today. The student predicted what led Thomas Jefferson to becoming a leader of the new nation."
"The student and I spent the majority of our session practicing his spelling words for the next day's test. He did very well for the most part with remembering the spellings of the words. We practiced until he was feeling confident with all his spelling words. I am continually impressed by his curiosity in all areas of learning, how many questions he asks, and his desire to learn new things."
"During today's session, I had the student complete two reading comprehension passages in order to observe how often, if at all, the student highlights/underlines while reading the text. We worked on identifying and correcting sentences' grammar/spelling mistakes; determining cause/effect relationships; and being able to draw conclusions from given texts."
