Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we covered world geography and reading. We went over an assignment I had created for the student to do over the week. We spent a significant amount of time taking notes and helping him organize his thinking as he reads."
"We read chapters 9 and 10 of Lord of the Flies. These are the chapters the student will he reading in class this week so we made sure she understood the reading to be able to successfully do her work in class."
"The student wrote his freewrite and practiced his cursive. We went through the ten syllabication rules again with sample words for each rule. We went through a reading passage on penguins and completed the comprehension questions that went with it. We discussed his progress since we began tutoring and I gave him his work to give to his new tutor, as well as practice for himself."
"He and I had a great session! We worked on an assignment he had for school. He had written an essay about a memorable weekend he had. The essay was well written, but had a few grammatical, spelling, etc. errors which we went back and fixed together. Afterwards, I had him work on a proofreading assignment. He did well, but he struggled a little bit. We will definitely be doing more proofreading in the future to further develop this skill. We also did a reading comprehension exercise about sharks, which he really enjoyed. A great session!"
"He and I prepared for the PSAT he is taking on Wednesday, reviewing the verbal and reading sections. I helped clear up some points of confusion, and he showed some good abilities in identifying answers. He will finish the practice test we worked on before Wednesday's test."
"He and I read and discussed a News ELA nonfiction article that was about a companion robot in Japan. He made a great connection about a program on CNN that was about this same robot. He thinks it is okay for people to use these as companions even though the article says that people should be around people. We also worked on two workbook pages that involved "Regular and Irregular Plural Nouns." He did a great job on these. He was in a much better and energetic mood tonight. The tutoring session went quite well. "
