Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We read about the Plains Indians, read about Lewis and Clark, and we studied the Upper Plains region, all three subjects tying in well together."
"Today the student and I went through chapter 9 of 'A Wrinkle in Time'. Her assignment for this chapter was to read it, come up with three main points from the chapter, and also jot down three questions she had after reading the chapter. We also read through several sections of chapter 9 that were significant to the story. Once we got through chapter 9, we started the first part of chapter 10. I mentioned to her today that her reading fluency has improved since the start of the book."
"I had the student read aloud from a novel. Next I worked on more blends: ir, ng, nk, oi, oo (long and short), ou. He wrote them onto index cards with words that have those blends. I also had him write the list in a journal. Next we completed two pages in his workbook. I had him read a short story aloud then answer comprehension questions. Lastly, we reviewed the letter blends from our last lesson. He is very receptive, and reads with expression and clarity."
