Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student began with a summary of his reading, The Epic of Gilgamesh, to show that he had not only completed the reading, but that he understood the fundamental themes. We then reviewed the details of his writing assignment."
"During this session, I had the student start writing an essay on his favorite pet. I wanted to give him more practice on writing an essay with an intro, body, and conclusion. I gave him 15 minutes to write everything he wanted to on a piece of paper about his cat. After reading his first rough draft, we began to edit it. This time we got through half of it. I really feel that he has improved a great deal when it comes to organizing his thoughts and heeding my corrections. We worked the entire session on this paper. Overall, he did a very good job!"
"After we went through our introductions, we worked through an e-mail and discussed circumstances, then I had him do two writing practices."
"The student and I worked on addition, subtraction, and multiplication. We also practiced reading with expression and correct pronunciation. In addition, he and I reviewed writing proper sentences and penmanship skills."
"The student and I worked on completing his spelling homework. We finished up the last few sections, so he's totally done for the week. We also worked on reading his social studies section and completing the questions along the way."
"The student and I worked on finding the main idea with two longer passages. We discussed the passages paragraph by paragraph and then as a whole. I've definitely seen an improvement in the way she navigates and processes her reading."
