Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We devoted all of today's energy to the English section. We took the time to identify parts of speech in sentences that asked questions about grammar. We also looked at all potential responses to have a better understanding of what sentence errors are created with incorrect answers. Our work was slow but I think very helpful. I plan to do a bit more of this next weekend."
"Today, we reviewed a critical reading passage I assigned the student for homework yesterday morning. I had the student complete two more critical reading passages, and spent the rest of the time learning new vocabulary."
"We read, scored and analyzed example expository essays. I introduced some new vocab. We dissected what prompts are asking and how to beef up paragraphs. The student wrote an essay based on the prompt we analyzed the entire session - we edited his essay together; when the student was stuck on editing or needed help moving forward, I modeled how he should proceed."
