Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student worked on her math homework, which was about polynomials. She did well with it. She also wrote a story for English."
"We reviewed old writing assignments during today's sessions. I gave feedback on writing style, as well as grammar; we also reviewed important habits for proofreading. We identified comma use as an area that may need specific attention. During today's session, he also set up the homework app on his tablet. This is a specific way to address his goal of being more organized with his assignments."
"One Tuesday, we found the next book assigned to the student, a travel narrative. We uncovered some information about its composition and came up with some possible arguments were he to write about it."
"The student practiced making sentences with various vocabulary and high frequency words that he had reviewed recently. Then we did an activity where the student identified what part of speech each word was--noun, pronoun, verb, adverb, adjective, preposition, etc. This was something fairly new for him, but as we went through it together he became good at identifying nouns and verbs--which is really good!"
"Today the student worked on two of her upcoming writing assignments. The first one was a literacy narrative, so she took some time to brainstorm and write out a rough plan for her paper. The next one was comparing/contrasting a social norm. We did the same process. I think she has some good material to work from!"
"We covered reading comprehension questions on the book he read during the break. We also reviewed the notices he had written based on the chapters. We reviewed possessive nouns. I gave him some homework on the grammar section along with the comprehensions questions."
