Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed some of her grammar worksheets, discussed a semester project for her English class, and did a bit of background discussion on a history semester project."
"During this session, we worked on transitioning between sentences, handwriting, proofreading, and organization. We started by revising and editing a paragraph that the student wrote for his English class. Our editing focused on transitions between sentences, creating flow, and connecting thoughts. Next, we turned to handwriting. The student traced and copied a poem by Robert Frost. He used a pen with a grip, which seemed to make writing more comfortable. Perhaps we can find him some pencil grips as well to ease his writing. While writing, we focused both on spacing between words and forming certain letters. Next, to give the student's hand a break, I had him describe to me, through the voice of a Washington Post Sports reporter, the final play of the Super Bowl. I wrote down everything he said, omitting punctuation and capitalization. He proofread the work, correcting the punctuation, capitalization, and verb tenses. Verb tense is an area that we will need to work on. Lastly, we ended with organizational strategies that will help the student to complete and submit all of his assignments. At the end of the session, the student commented that he thinks he is making good progress!"
"The student and I reviewed the writing prompts for her continued study of "To Kill A Mockingbird" in her English class at school."
