Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"For the first 30 minutes, the student read the sample selection I brought for him. After his reading, he answered questions pertaining to the selection. For the remaining 30 minutes, the student completed his writing assignment from the prompt I brought for him. At the end of the session we reviewed his answers to the questions he answered and I had him revise his thesis statement for his writing. I left a writing assignment for the student to complete before we meet next time."
"Today we worked on a paragraph analyzing an aspect of "Of Mice and Men," which the student had been assigned for homework. I helped him find ways to present quotes from the text as well as connect quotes back to the topic sentence/thesis statement. We also worked on transitional sentences."
"* The student had the five vocab words from last week defined and used in a sentence. * We worked on 15 more words from the 7th grade vocab list, defining and memorizing. * The student was able to pick out the incorrectly used vocab word in a sentence and replace it with the correct one. * She matched synonyms and antonyms to the vocab words. * She also chose the right words to fill in the blanks of a sentence."
