Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this tutoring session, the student practiced TOEFL reading and writing. At the beginning of the lesson, she received the lesson plan and assignment for this week. She has a vocabulary quiz in every lesson and needs to submit a TOEFL essay, which is due by Saturday. The reading she read today is on the topic of The Greek Chorus and the Audience. She did very well on the part of writing the outline and got 2 out three correct in the multiple choice part. After the reading part, she studied all the new vocabulary from the reading then had a vocabulary quiz. She scored 33 out 36. At the end of the lesson, she reviewed the five paragraph structure of TOEFL writing and read the sample writing."
"Session Focus: Reading fluency and comprehension reading fluency was practiced via a chapter reading from a school assigned chapter book. The R.A.C.E. reading response strategy was practiced after reading a nonfiction text."
"I worked half the time with Student 1 and half with Student 2. Going forward, Student 1 and I will work on punctuation, grammar, and sentence structure. Student 2 and I spent our time preparing for his upcoming quiz on American history."
"The student worked on his English assignment that dealt with 40 vocabulary words that matched them to the appropriate definition. We then discussed his marketing project in which I gave him some advice as to various methods and modes of marketing. He had a very good attitude towards participating and completing his assignments and scheduling a plan for the next appointment in which we will be discussing Romeo and Juliet."
"The student and I used Aesop's fable "The Fox and The Crow" to work on his ability to answer "w" questions. He showed the most aptitude with "who" questions. With extra work, I have faith that his ability to memorize the elements of a story can improve greatly. He shows a willingness to learn and a patience that is not usually seen in children with similar circumstances."
"The student and I worked on her reading and writing today. She is more confident with sight words and better with sounding things out. However, she still needs to work on not substituting word she thinks for a sentence and reading what is actually there instead. We went ahead and did some pages in her math book. We are still working on adding and subtracting in her head rather than on her fingers."
