Session Summaries by Essay Editing Tutors

Highlands Ranch, CO Essay Editing tutoring
For this session, the student and I worked together on his spelling words (he got 100% when I gave him a test) and then he read to me from "The Magic Treehouse" book #1. We did a comprehension check at the end of each chapter and he was able to sufficiently tell me what happened in the book. After reading 3 chapters aloud, he and I went over the words I'd written down where he had struggled with pronunciation. I had written them on flashcards and we started to go through them with him looking up the meanings he did not know and giving me contextually sound sentences with that word in them. On the flashcards were also similar words that, when he read them aloud, he pronounced one when the other should have been used (i.e. harried and hurried). He did very well.

We read two different books today. The student showed me a new book he's reading about a detective fly, which is very interesting, clever, and full of advanced vocabulary, so I allowed him to continue reading from it to me even though it's a comic book. As he read, I stopped him to correct his pronunciation of new vocabulary when necessary and occasionally to define a word for him. After we'd spent most of our time doing that, he read another chapter of "The Three Musketeers" to me.

The first thing he student did tonight was express concern to me that he has a big spelling assessment coming up tomorrow and that he feels he may do poorly on it. He felt that he was not as confident as he would have liked to be. We made flashcards of potential words that he could be quizzed on to try to prepare him as much as possible tonight. He put a lot of energy into memorization of the words; one concern of mine, however, is that it was hard for him to retain the spelling of them. I speculated that this may be because the spelling of some words is not logical to him. For example, he kept spelling the word "special" as "spashul", because it made sense phonetically, and it is hard for him to retain a spelling with letters that don't make sense to him. This is one of the biggest reasons he struggles, I believe. The best way that I have found to counter this is to come up with certain ways to help him remember such words (such as: "there's no "SH" but there's a "C" in special. These types of memory tricks create a cognitive association between a certain thing/letter/word. I told him to just do his best on his test, remember what we've worked on, and spell the words the way they best make sense.

We read a book about baseball (a topic he enjoys) with a focus on building confidence and fluency. The story was rather short, and we focused on relating sounds of letters and syntax. The student focused well and seemed to build confidence from the book. We next read an on-grade-level text that seemed to be a challenge. I used echo reading to keep his confidence going with the more challenging text. We finished the session with a 5-6 sentence summary of the reading. I continued to show him how to use the text to find the spelling of difficult words.

The student was in a better mood this session, and we continued reading The Twits, by Roald Dahl. Before we started, I asked him what he remembered, and he was able to give a fairly good run-down. He seemed to be enjoying the story--he laughed and made predictions about what would happen and exclaimed "I knew it!" when he was correct. We took turns reading pages, as per usual, but I made sure this time that he was following along with me when it was my turn. I think he is doing better. He is not skipping as many words as he was (still a few articles here and there, but nothing major), and is sounding things out more confidently. I still have to guide him when he sounds it out, but he is no longer just shooting random guesses until he gets the word right.

Today we looked at an essay that the student wrote for his P.E. class. He did a much better job of supporting his ideas in this essay than he was doing when we started working together. We also looked at an assignment for his essay class in which he has to write a personal narrative using a vignette in the assigned book to mirror his topic or the style in which he is choosing to write. We went over what he had starting writing to see if it aligned with the assignment. We discussed how he might add to what he already had so that it would mirror the chosen vignette as per the assignment.
