Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had a fair amount of homework last night, so we spent the session completing and getting her ahead of her assignments. This included math, her binder organization, and a writing assignment. She's been doing a great job! She has mentioned feeling a little overwhelmed with the pace of her advanced math class, but seems to be keeping up."
"The student had a good attitude toward reading. Although she was uncomfortable reading aloud, she did it anyway. During our session, I asked her comprehension as well as vocabulary questions. We chose a book that was turned into a movie she had seen so that she could use her prior knowledge to help her with comprehension. I sent her home with some comprehension strategies for reading."
"The student had a great session tonight. He had a lot of practice with subject/verb agreement. He practiced some with literary elements and answering writing prompts. We also did some reading and comprehension exercises. I see tremendous improvement from the first sessions to now in his comprehensions with the use of the strategies he has learned through our sessions together and he states that he has more confidence in his college courses as well."
"The student had a great session. He was focused, engaged, spoke of the things he did during the week, worked on phonics, reviewed K sight word list, practiced writing N & L, and finished work sent from school."
"The student had a lot of homework today, and it took a while to finish. The reading homework was fairly easy for her. Math was much more difficult today - partly because the homework sheet was handwritten and difficult to read. The addition and subtraction were easy in and of themselves, but understanding what should be added and subtracted was hard to determine because of how some questions were worded. We will keep working at it."
"The student had a spelling activity today, and we did pyramid spelling in order for him to remember how the word is spelled. Also, with the spelling words, I had him to look for the patterns, such as "-ie," "-ight," and so forth. This helped him to see how the words relate, and he discovered the rhyming pattern. We read some library books that he had checked out from school and we did a few short stories that included comprehension questions."
