Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During our session, the student and I worked on identifying tone as well as techniques used by writers to create a flow within their work. We discussed how this could assist reading comprehension and speed. He and I also went over his project for his long-term school project."
"We covered topics in social studies, spelling, and reading. In social studies, we studied the lower four states (Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma) and their capitals. In spelling, we studied for his spelling test on Friday. Overall he did very well on our practice test. In reading, I helped him complete a sequencing/summarizing activity."
"The student read a story from Sherlock Holmes and did a tree map on it. She also wrote a division story problem."
"The student appears to be rapidly improving on his reading and sentence mechanics passages, as shown by the clear rise in his scores on practice sets. This seems to have given him confidence as we move towards more of the pure reading comprehension, with which he definitely seems to need further work. However, he seems very eager to expand his skills in the coming weeks via further practice."
"The student began the session by putting her spelling words in alphabetical order. Without a doubt she did it on her own and as she wrote them down she spelled them all correctly. She was so proud of herself and so was I. Then we moved on to math. She has improved tremendously in math when it comes to adding and subtracting double digit numbers. She also knows the keywords to add in addition to the key words to subtract. She's definitely a successful student."
"The student brought a writing assignment from the beginning of the year and we worked together on improving it. She also rewrote a piece describing Pokemon GO and we talked about making outlines. We ended the session doing a little bit of work of inferences."
