Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This afternoon, I sent the student the Linguistics landscapes/data project proposals that she and I discussed. I wrote a brief for each proposal and then specified the points she would need to touch on before she determines which proposal she would like to present her professor. The rubric and chapter notes for this project are detailed in the outline I provided. She will be accessing this information after the data collection is complete."
"We worked on formatting and lengthening the student's media report paper. We brainstormed ideas for her next paper and worked on the formatting for that paper, as well. We then worked on a thesis statement for her second paper and discussed how she could go about proving that thesis."
"The student and I worked on her reading packet, reading through two short stories and answering questions to check for reading comprehension and grammar/ punctuation knowledge. Afterwards we practiced reading aloud in her favorite chapter book. She did an excellent job today!"
"The student had written a brief book report on his Bill Gates biography. We went back over the book and outlined enough info to rewrite his report and write another one he'd been assigned. Then, he worked on half of a worksheet he had to complete for homework."
"The student and I went over the reading material for an essay prompt. We then discussed his observations of the text and worked out an outline for his essay. He will write this essay sometime between now and the next couple of sessions we have so we can workshop it. He has shown himself to be a very perceptive reader, and I look forward to working with him on a writing assignment."
"This was the first session, so we mainly did introductory things. I had the student read a book to me. I helped her out with sounding out words sometimes. We also went over her math homework. We then played some reading and math games on my laptop to give her extra practice. The student was pretty positive throughout the session."
