Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This was our first session. First we established interests to find suitable material for personal reading. We overviewed prior materials to find that although spelling is not an issue, grammar is difficult for him when he writes his own material. After an editing pass on his free write, he was able to self-identify all but one of his grammatical errors. I wrote a few pieces for him to correct, at which he was great. I will email his mother, with a few books for daily reading of 20 min."
"* I helped the student review and prepare for her upcoming vocab quiz. * We worked on reviewing definitions for an upcoming math quiz. * We continued reading, reviewing the phonetic blends she has learned. * I read the story of the "Nightingale", having her follow with her eyes, practicing a smoother, faster flow while reading out loud. * She read a couple more Aesop's Fables, noting the "moral" of each."
"Today we finished Bridge to Terabithia. We did a review on the entire book and I then gave her a comprehensive exam. She did amazing on it! The student got 18/19 on the exam. She also utilized her test taking techniques that we have been working on; reading the questions carefully, pacing herself, eliminating incorrect answers, and double checking her work. Today's session went great! I left her with a creative writing assignment to complete for next session. This assignment is to help her start thinking outside of the box. I will have a new book picked out for us to begin reading at our next reading session."
