Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I discussed The Most Dangerous and analyzed the characters' actions to better understand the author's purpose. We also worked on reading fluency strategies such echoing, pausing, and rereading for tone."
"Today the student and I worked on identifying the subject and predicate of a sentence, as well as determining the difference between declarative, interrogative, exclamatory, and imperative sentences. He did really well at using context to determine the appropriate punctuation of sentences. He had more trouble understanding the difference between the object and the predicate of a sentence, so I gave him extra practice before our next session."
"We covered topics for his ELA midterm. I quizzed the student over literary terms and we learned different POVs. He did well on learning the terminology. He made a good effort today to get ready for his exam."
"Student 1 and I read Frozen and wrote some reading comprehension paragraphs about the motivations of characters in the book and the major themes of the story. Student 2 and I read Judy Moody and continued to work on long division."
"The student worked on identifying and interpreting concepts (figurative language) used in the novel, Peak, that is being read in class. She completed her worksheet assignment by instructor. We also practiced using figurative language."
"Today the student did a great job with being engaged. We wrapped up our unit on diagramming sentences, using prepositions (which he has also been working on in school). We also identified a new list of vocabulary words, and began a new vocabulary technique (word mapping, and identifying words in context)."
