Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over her last homework assignment. I had her create a superhero and write a story in which her superhero saved the day. Her superhero was called Plasticman. He had many interesting powers and an arch nemesis. She wrote about why she is excited to go back to school. She was accepted into the gifted/talented program at her school. We discussed what new challenges the program will bring. For homework, she is compiling a list of resolutions for the coming year. This session was really productive and I'm looking forward to next week."
"Today we reviewed the student's rough and final draft 6 paragraph essays, one on Polar Bears and one on penguins. I encouraged him to always make sure to pay careful attention to his rough draft so he doesn't make grammatical errors. We also worked on the differences between your and you're, their and they're, etc. His handwriting is improving."
"The student and I discussed his "Dream Room" assignment, and he did a final draft. Very good paragraph! We did a couple of worksheets, one on antonyms and another on vocabulary. I instructed him on adjectives and adverbs, and we brainstormed on a new paragraph about the solar system for next week. I would like to see at least nine sentences, and I want him to use adjectives and adverbs. This was a very good session."
