Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Saw progress in school book. Worked on organizational skills, time management, and grammar construction."
"The student and I discussed his current progress. We worked on some reading, writing, and grammar."
"-Preparing for spelling test and meanings. -Help with the homework. -Help with reading assignments."
"The student was great again this week! We did a more challenging reading comprehension that required her to apply characterizations to the main and supportive characters in the selection. She had trouble at first, though some of that may have been a lack of confidence. She said she wasn't understanding the reading, but when I pressed her for details, she summarized it sufficiently. We also started talking about essay structure, and we're starting a packet of work on transition words that will end with her writing her own transition sentences."
"The student was in an extra good mood today. He did very well on two difficult passages. I am very happy that he is taking on questions with a much more analytical frame of mind."
"The student was losing interest in the chapter book we were reading, so we switched to a new book with a different format. His interest definitely increased, and because the pages were shorter, he had longer endurance, since he seems best motivated by finishing pages. We also worked on an activity reading descriptions of objects in his house, and then guessing what they were based on descriptions. This increased his attention to detail, comprehension, and also was fun."
