Session Summaries by English Tutors

Melrose Park, IL English tutoring
We first worked on the student's school spelling words of this week. He did well on the first five and we practiced pronunciation on the others. Then, we did exercises in the same state exam prep workbook as in the previous session. I have started reading and working through the questions with him. When he gets input on unfamiliar words or literary terms, he does well in assimilating the passage content and interpreting the questions. He's interested in the material and doesn't lose heart, but he has a long way to go to do well on the state exam this spring. In terms of his prep for the state exam, we will continue to use the workbooks, focusing on making sure he know the literary terms and question formats to expect. For example, he couldn't understand a question that asked what something "referenced" in the passage. Once we discussed it, he could, and did, answer correctly.

Today we discussed the student's homework. We named the mixed upper and lower case letters 4 times. She does these very well with the exception of lower case "b." She still gets this confused with lower case "d." I wrote a line of lower case "b" and "d" all mixed up and had her go through them twice to see if she could see the difference between them side by side. This did seem to help. We then worked on letter recognition by pictures. She does this very well. I had her take a water break, and I decided to read her a story to give her a break, which she loved! After the story, we went through her sight words twice and read 3 of her sentences. She did much better on focusing and getting words on her own. I was so proud of her...she read "little" on her own!

The student's mother informed me that the student had increased her reading fluency to the point she needed to be at for her grade. I decided to give a little more focus to reading comprehension and I'll continue to do so for the rest of our sessions. After teaching her a bit of phonics concepts and reviewing old phonics lessons I had taught her, we went into reading one of her favorite books. While reading, I asked her to tell me more about the characters, focus on the pictures, and respond to the story. At the end, I focused on asking her some specific questions about the reading content.
