Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We read the student's new chapter book, discussed comprehension questions, and finished her reading homework."
"We continued our reading plan. The student is getting better at identifying words. We are continuing our "word attack" skills, and also sight vocabulary building."
"Today, I went over the student's reading homework and he completed his reading and worksheet. We also went over vocabulary words and concepts being covered in class. He learned two new words from his book as well: noxious and devour. He did really well today. On Thursday, I will review each of the words and concepts covered today as well as prepare him for his test on Friday."
"We took turns reading chapter 2 of The Outsiders. The student wrote a summary of chapters 1 and 2 that we went over together. I gave her some grammar exercises that I corrected after she completed them. I left her with questions on chapter 2 for homework. She was very willing to read chapter 3 and engage in work that we did."
"The student and I were able to accomplish a lot today. We wrote and submitted an application for a position about which he was very excited, talked about strategies for interview preparation, and also discussed the scheduling for people viewing his apartment. In addition, we worked on adding meetings into his google calendar so that he will get reminders on his phone. We will meet next week, but at a later time and I look forward to hearing how the interviews are going and sending out more applications."
"We reviewed the student's teacher's comments from the short stories essay that she worked on in our previous session and discussed possible ways of expanding ideas. We also discussed and she drafted responses to Odyssey short-answer questions."
