Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Monday the student and I worked again on blending nonsense words, as well as the reading fluency packets from the Dibbles package. He is making progress every session he only had 8 errors out of 240 words. I also reviewed adverbs and verbs. We read two books titled " Shoo, Fly Guy!" and " Henry and Mudge.""
"My first session with the student went very well! She was a bit shy at first but by the end we were talking and working together comfortably. She stayed very focused and the apartment was nice and quiet for our whole session. We went over her homework that she had already completed (I helped her with some editing) and did two practice reading exercises from a supplemental book. I told the student she did an awesome job and I will see her again in two weeks!"
"We went over speed reading and reading fluency with parts of words. We finished reading the book we've been working on. She did great, much faster and much better with fluency."
"Today we started the session with a little test for his multiplication numbers 6 and 7. He still needs to practice, because he forgot a few of them. I gave him homework to review those numbers again as well as 8. We did math questions dealing with two-digit multiplication problems. We then reviewed an ELA reading passage together."
"Today we started with 10 minutes of reading out loud followed by her English homework. Then I tested her on the spelling words I gave her to study. She got one wrong. I checked her sentences for the ten words, commented on each one, and tested her on her 3 and 4 times tables. For Tuesday, I gave her 10 more words, the 6 times table, and 10 sentences. She's doing really well."
"Today we used this session to practice our speaking. We had various discussions ranging from the history of Thanksgiving to the results of the elections. It was a great session. I love my students and I hope to have the opportunity to teach them again soon."
