Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered the reading comprehension multiple choice section of the packet, focusing on two passages. I made sure to follow the times and techniques indicated in the training packet. Overall the two boys I had today did well on the first passage."
"I had three students. We covered reading comprehension, multiple choice from two passages. I saw a HUGE improvement in focus and performance from one student from yesterday to today. The students seem to be more comfortable with me today and more willing to learn."
"Today, the student answered questions about her story on Sherlock Holmes. Then we went over some long division problems and reviewed spelling."
"The student and I worked through the poem in her assignment stanza by stanza. We shared our insights along the way and looked up definitions to words and terms we didn't understand. We then made an outline for her essay and began working on the introduction and first body paragraph. She writes well and mostly needed support in getting her thoughts organized. I believe she has the outline and content she needs to be successful in this assignment. She asked if she could send me her paper before she submits it tonight. I asked her to email me what she has by 9:30 pm so that I can critique it before she finishes. The student remained engaged throughout the entirety of our tutoring session. She was very easy to work with. If she needs help on any writing assignments in the future, I would enjoy working with her again. Thanks!"
"The student and I worked today on editing a writing assignment for her class, talking about and practicing conditionals (especially in the past tense), and then working together on new vocabulary from a reading assignment."
"The student and I worked together on pronunciation. (She sells sea shells by the sea shore). We also spent quite a bit of time learning Excel. The filtering tool, she thinks will be very helpful for her work. We also learned some basic cell functions (adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing)."
