Session Summaries by English Grammar and Syntax Tutors

Hendersonville, TN English Grammar and Syntax tutoring
Session Focus: Reading Fluency and Vocabulary Development The student practiced reading fluency through repeated readings of a grade level fluency passage. The vocabulary skill focus was context clues. The concept was introduced via a game, through which she practiced using given strategies to determine the appropriate word to use in a question based on context clues. In our next session, we will continue our study of context clues in sentences and then within a longer text.

I gave the student two stories to read, and had her highlight the important points of each paragraph and answer the questions. I helped her sound out the words she found difficult to pronounce that vowel blends. We discussed the stories after she read them, and she did a good job answering the questions. I also gave her homework on reading comprehension.

The student and I worked on her story again, and are coming close to finishing our edits and are beginning to write new material. I am pleased with how she is applying what she has learned to her writing, including things like grammar and changing sentences to emphasize different things. We worked primarily on expanding certain points to produce greater emotion so that the story has more highs and lows rather than a simple series of events.

We began this session by proofreading an essay the student had to write for her internship. Most of our work consisted of reiterating the points we've long been working on -- abstract versus concrete language, avoiding the passive voice, and choosing strong verbs. After about half an hour, we switched to her research paper, issued in her senior project class. She spent the remaining hour sketching out each paragraph (it's a five page paper) and doing internet research. She didn't finish the paper, of course, but she looked interested in the topic and fairly well prepared.

We discussed the student's reading comprehension exercises, specifically regarding the opening chapters of Huckleberry Finn. We discussed how to approach the novel and what to look for in order to answer the assigned questions successfully. He seemed to be having some trouble in his approach to interpreting such a complex novel, but was very attentive and had a good attitude. Thinking about complex questions and engaging in serious discussions should help him develop his critical reading skills and his appreciation for literature.

Today I had the student practice writing an expository essay. I had him write, and I stopped him to explain sentence structure, grammar, or idea management as he went. He did well with thinking of three solid arguments to talk about in his essay. There were some typos and convoluted long sentences, but I pointed them out to him. I suggested he write simpler sentences, but avoid fragments, which he tends to write. I helped him steer his arguments towards answering the prompt; which was difficult for him to do at first, but he caught on. As for the conclusion, I helped him structure the summary and tie-in the ending reflections with the prompt. Then we worked on an outline for a second essay, which he was enthusiastic about, and structured well. Then I wrote comments for his science fair project, guiding him with structure and filler sentences that aren't needed. The project is interesting but needs a better focus, and more concision which can be achieved through creating paragraphs and clarifying a few sentences.
