Session Summaries by Summer Tutors

Lauderhill, FL Summer tutoring
The student, his dad, and I met at the library. We first discussed his scholastic history and what his teachers said he needed help with, specifically organization skills to keep track of his papers, organization for gathering ideas and presentations, organization in writing, math help, and prioritization for homework time. The father left, and the student explained that he's always turning in late work and pulling out the wrong papers or he can't find his papers. We first worked on his biology binder and organized it into different sections according to his labeling system using Post-it notes as a temporary tab/divider. We determined he needed different colored tabs/dividers for this binder. In organizing this binder, he pulled out papers from math, chorus, health, and history in addition to his science papers. We set those papers aside and moved onto his World Studies binder and organized in the same fashion with Post-it notes while setting papers from other subjects aside. He described his nightly homework routine which included making a list and a time frame for what he needed to work on that night. I suggested he put the date received and the deadline on each paper he received every time he receives a paper or to put "no deadline" if there isn't one so he can place order of importance on homework. I also advised him to prioritize his work by the highest number of points or percentage that the work is worth along with due dates. The father returned, and we reviewed what the student and I worked on for the session and suggestions for homework time. I also suggested that the student organize his math binder as he did with the biology and history binders. He actively took part in organizing his binders and discussing what he thought he needed help with first, which shows a good work ethic and accountability.

Today's session was more of an introduction/Q&A than anything else. The student has just completed a six-week period and will start a new six-week period on Monday. His parents and I will be working with his teachers to gain access to textbooks and other resources that will help me provide a more in-depth and personalized tutoring program. I have been given access to his student account, which I plan to reference in combination with the resources provided through his teachers and school. Of primary interest and importance are the skills of note-taking, information-processing, critical thinking, and the setting and actualizing of personal academic goals. I foresee the first couple of sessions being highly mechanical as we work to establish proper study habits (making flashcards, taking notes, etc.) and methods of processing information (scanning texts, active listening, etc.). He is definitely bright and intelligent, and I look forward to next week's sessions.

The student already has a great grip on organizing himself. He says that he turned his focus to improving his grades a couple of weeks ago and recognized that he would need to have himself "more together" to achieve better grades in all his classes. Currently he is using a large binder with pocketed dividers to house all his notes and classwork. The binder is very well done. He has class "laps" on the front and completed homework on the back pocket of each divider. He says he has found using a paper calendar tedious and usually procrastinates about doing it. We set up a google calendar and synced it to his phone. He was impressed with how easy it is and how he can share calendar events with his parents. Calendaring showed how we can better use post dinner time for reading. We also found time on the weekends for reviewing material from the beginning of the semester which will be important since finals are in 3 weeks. He has a paper due on 11/25, so we made a plan that his 2nd draft will be due at our next session 11/23. Overall, I'm super impressed with his organization level and his dedication to improving his grades. My goal will be to tweak what he already has and to keep him motivated to keep it up.

Today, the student had found a sample standardized test online that she requested we make use of during our session, to begin preparing for the test that will take place next month. We worked through a large number of the sample multiple choice problems, most of which were focused on math. She got every single answer correctly and would many times figure the answer out very quickly without even making use of scratch paper. Shortly before our session concluded, we arrived at the Writing Sample portion of the practice test. This section required that she evaluate a random photo then type a story of any length centered around the image. Prior to my leaving, she managed to type two sentences, and I assigned her the homework of finishing typing her story. As the story could be of any length, I informed her that her story could be as few as three sentences (a short paragraph) to as long as fourteen sentences (two long paragraphs), encouraging her to focus on one solid paragraph.

The student and I worked through spelling, metric conversions, and decimal homework. She still struggles most with the metric system, but she is still eager to learn and improve. I taught her basic "times 10" principles to help her with the metric system that she quickly picked up. I didn't leave her with extra practice problems and she needs to focus on spellings and unit conversions. She is reading more quickly and we began a chapter book!

We did some brain break activities this session. We continued with his math practice because this is an area of need. We worked with base ten and other math concepts such as money and addition flash cards. I left a set of flash cards with him so he can continue to practice between sessions (numbers 1-20). We also will be focusing on spelling words since his mom requested this as an area of study. Each Wednesday when we meet we will have a spelling "test" and a new list of ten words will be introduced. These words are from the list of second grade sight and always words that each student should be able to spell and use by fourth grade. We will also include time to review any homework that he is assigned to complete.
