Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today's session was a good one. The student displayed a vast improvement in his comprehension skills and applications and was able to achieve a perfect score on his individual assessment."
"Today, the student and I continued our plan to finish the semester strong. Specifically, we worked on a biographical essay interview for English and did some research in order to write a history paper."
"We spent time in conversation practice, talking about: introductions, sports, and domestic pets. We also talked about his education, world travels, and interests. He is well articulated with little correction on pronunciation of words."
"We practiced reading short books and reviewed phonics for the alphabet. The student continues to build confidence with reading and sounding out words."
"We reviewed the student's sight words (2nd grade). We used magnet letters to review phonics: /th/ and /th/; r-controlled (/ar/ /er/ /or/ /ur/). We worked on rhyming/word families (-ar and -are) and the Orton-Gillingham alphabet placement. We reviewed spelling with sight word flashcards (long, was, its, more)."
"We started the session by finishing the Mad Libs we had started on Tuesday with a careful review of nouns, adjectives, verbs, and adverbs. We then reviewed the newest phonic sounds introduced in the past two weeks: ou, au/aw, ti, si ci, and ch. I introduced ee. The first student then played an online game (reviewing 2 - 5s out of order and 6 - 9s in order) while the second student and I read "Grain of Sand." We then switched. Both boys are getting most of the tables correct when done in order; when tables are done "out of order," the percentage of correct answers drops to 50%. While I was preparing the game, I had them both review skip counting 2s, 3s, and 4s by pointing and saying the sequences aloud individually. We finished our time by playing two rounds of Three Dice Addition and one round of Flip It for more addition review."
