Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I worked on adding details to her sentences so they are more complex, and also worked to see how she doesn't have to add every word from the list."
"I evaluated the students' mastery of their vocabulary words, then gave them each ten more to memorize. I helped the first student with her writing assignment about Edison and Graham Bell, and started on the second science ACT with the second student."
"The student had a very good session after a nice spring break. She was eager to play a word pattern game and was initiating some additional word options. She had a writing prompt assignment for school and worked very diligently to complete the front and back of the blank page. She worked independently to sound out the words and used punctuation quite effectively. When she finished she proudly read it to her grandmother. We finished the session with initial blends and she continued to be focused and cooperative!"
"We focused on reviewing some geometry concepts that the student is learning in school. He does a good job knowing names of polygons and the attributes of triangles. He does struggle with matching the attributes of the triangles to the mathematical name like isosceles, scalene, or equilateral. We will continue to work on this."
"It was a pleasure meeting the student and his mom today. An assessment was done to test his letter recognition, letter sound recognition, blending abilities, learning style, parts of a book, and willingness to learn. The student did a great job and is a joy to work with. He is a visual and auditory learner, enjoys math, but not books or reading. He is aware of his letters and sounds of the letters. He had issues recognizing lower case letters "l" and "I." However, he was able to remember it and recall both letters after being shown and explained the difference. He is ready for blending and making words. It was recommended for his mom to purchase a Pre-Kindergarten workbook. After working with and explaining to the student about the wonderful things one can learn from reading a book and reading "Numbers," he was excited to read and wanted his mom to continue to read the book to him. I am looking forward to the next session."
"The student and I first worked on some definitions for geometry that will be on the standardized test. Then we worked on the difference between similes and metaphors. Finally, we read a book. The student did a great job and has a great attitude about learning."
