Session Summaries by Essay Editing Tutors

Evanston, IL Essay Editing tutoring
I reviewed previously learned concepts before she began reading -- chunk, word families, what makes sense -- and also reiterated the need to slow down a bit to avoid needless, unnecessary mistakes on the "easy" words. I put a strong focus tonight on reading with expression, and also had the student re-read several times. She breezed through the first book. After the B-M-E (beginning, middle, end), I introduced two other comprehension exercises. These are reflection (What part of the story did you like best? Why?) and interpretation (What do you think was the mot important part of the story? Why do you think this was the most important part?). She's persistent in implementing her strategies, but she needs to be prompted to use them first. I'm going to see if I can cut down on verbal prompts and get her to apply the strategies independently.

Today the student and I worked a lot on the book Pete the Cat plays Baseball. He read the whole book to me with only a little help needed. We then wrote the words from the book onto note cards for him to practice them as sight words. We went through them, and I told him to practice them until I come back on Wednesday. We played the rhyming bingo game. He likes to do the same things repetitively. I read him two books that I had brought last week that he enjoyed listening to. I will look for a few more games and books that we keep his interest and excite him.

The student is an excellent reader. First she read me some books that she had made herself in school projects or on her own. She seems to love books! Then we read through a couple books that she already knew and discussed how taking knowledge you already have about the book can make you a better reader. For example, looking at a book title and cover can help you predict the story, which helps your brain comprehend the words on the pages. We practiced visualizing the characters and their actions, which she liked doing. The two books we read were a bit easy for her grade level, which was great, because we could really slow down and dissect the sentences. We stopped after each page to recap what happened and to ask questions about the characters. She did great! She is a strong reader, and she wants to learn. She seemed to comprehend the material, which makes me wonder if the main issue is in her test taking. However, I did mention that she was already familiar with these books. We discussed picking up a more difficult book the next time, one that she hasn't read before. She seemed excited about it. I would also like to see some examples of the tests she will be taking to pass second grade, which is the ultimate goal. We went through the KWL strategy, where we map out "what I know," "what I want to know" before we read the book, and "what I learned" after. This helps her ask questions before she even starts reading. It seemed to be effective, so I would like to keep doing this as we work through each lesson. She is a great student and a hard worker. I believe that if we keep at these reading techniques, she will naturally use them on her own in no time, and will be able to pass the second grade.

The student was able to finish two books on vacation. He only brought one back with him for this session. He was able to tell me everything he had read and read the whole book silent reading. This is a significant improvement. We worked on some of the student's homework this session. He had a bible verse to memorize and spelling words. We then did his math homework. Most of the problems were word problems. He did really well with this and was able to do all the word problems on his own. We then worked on the nonfiction book and he read several sections. He was able to answer all the questions over what he read. He will be working on finishing the Taekwondo book before Sunday. We also picked out a new book and he read the first chapter. He was able to read out loud fluidly with very little help.

On the seventh session, we played a word identification game using the word flash cards. We divided the word cards evenly between the two of us and placed them face down on the table. Then we took turns turning a card over, saying the word on the card, and using it in a sentence. She did very well with this. She correctly identified all words and used them all in a sentence correctly. After the word game, she read several pages from a second grade-level book. I have her read each page 3 times. The first time she gets familiar with any new words. The second and third reads are to reinforce the new words and help her to get better with reading at an even flow with proper voice inflection. She is very good at reading words from the flash cards. She is quick to identify the words and say them aloud when practicing with the word cards. Her challenge is reading a sentence or paragraph smoothly. Reading the passage repeatedly helps with this problem.

On Wednesday, the student and I worked on several different assignments for multiple classes. For Phil 110, we had to watch a 20 minute video on the week's material, look at the key terms from the content, and then review the material that will be part of the next online quiz. There were also 10 homework questions that required the breaking down of arguments to determine if they were sound or unsound. For Linguistics, we had 2 papers to read- one was 34 pages and the other 7- and they each had five homework questions to answer. There also was an online not-for-credit survey for her Linguistics class that we completed as well.
