Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We started off our session today reviewing the social studies homework. It was a passage online followed by multiple choice questions, as well as a written response. I went over previous spelling words with him. There were some he was still having trouble spelling correctly, so I left him the words to review for next week. Then we worked on practicing for the ELA. This included him listening to a passage twice and completing the written responses."
"We looked at descriptions of several classic novels to choose a book for one of the students (War of the Worlds). Then, we continued reading aloud in both girls' books, taking great care to take notes throughout of any questions we had on vocabulary or plot."
"Tonight's session was predominantly on preparing for a reading test on a textbook passage. We identified main ideas and then outlined the chapter, paragraph by paragraph. I instructed the student to re-read his outline again after the session ended, yet again right before he went to sleep, and a third time tomorrow before school. We concluded by revising a written assignment, specifically working on improving his topic sentences and figurative language."
