Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I continued the lesson on basic sentence parts, discussing direct and indirect objects. We then moved on to talking about sentence types, clauses, subordination, and coordination. After that, we began reviewing word roots, using the list from her anatomy book as a starting place. I explained the meanings of the prefixes, suffixes, and word parts, and then asked her to come up with examples of these in everyday speech."
"Student 1 made a big list of ways he could describe a painting. He was excited to do some free reading. He chose a level 3 book from the library and read it silently to himself. Â He had great focus during silent reading. Student 2 seemed eager to describe the painting. After drawing a couple monsters, he wrote a paragraph explaining why he prefers monster drawing to the painting. He also wrote a short paragraph on a comic book. His spelling was particularly good today, and as usual, whenever he was asked to sound out a word, he did so with a pretty high accuracy rate."
"We finished work on the final essay. We reviewed how to bring in multiple sources to one paragraph and to incorporate experiences into the essay. I ensured that the Works Cited page and in-text citations were congruent with MLA style. I encouraged the student to review the essay as a whole then write a conclusion on her own."
"During this tutoring session, we reviewed over pre and primer sight word. The student read sight word reading books. He did an excellent job on this task. He also completed task related sight word recognition. We also reviewed over number recognition 1-20. We did several activities to help him practice number recognition. He did ok with this activity. This session went very well."
"He was a lot of fun to work with...lots of energy. We focused on letters and sound recognition. He did very well; he was very familiar with his letters, and he knew most of the sounds. I advised his mom to continue to focus on letters and sounds until our next session."
"I read several books to the student. His picture recognition and ability to tell what is going on in the book and his comprehension is excellent! I would like to work on letter and number recognition and writing his name, so we will need a notebook and pencils."
