Session Summaries by Phonics Tutors

Peoria, AZ Phonics tutoring
We used this session to review rhetorical devices for her exam on Friday. She scored between 85 - 100% on the quizzes. For each one she scored below 95, I had her take it a second time. Usually she was able to score 100 on the second try. I asked her to keep doing these all week in preparation for the exam.

The student said he has been making steady progress in class, but wanted to work on literary devices, general organization and idea extraction methods when writing his essays. We read through an article he was given as an assignment, identified literary devices, defined them and noted their use in the article, then critiqued the article as a whole with reference to the author's intent and his use of emotion and logic. Next, we discussed broad details on his teacher's assignments and expectations, and went over the student's strengths and weaknesses when performing said assignments. Finally, we read through another article and I had him give me a verbal analysis and his opinion on the piece. We went through his analysis, bullet point by bullet point, discussed those literary devices he found and those he missed. I also pointed out that it is important to be aware of the time period and place in which the author existed, and other clues background information might help with when analyzing or critiquing a piece. It was a good first session.

The student's class is presently learning about the American philosophical and literary movement known as 'transcendentalism' and in today's session we focused on understanding the details of transcendentalist philosophy. I suggested an outside resource online, to help the student better understand both the philosophical content and the historical context of transcendentalism. The student arrived at today's session prepared with a PowerPoint presentation that her teacher had used to introduce the subject to her class. Although we spent some time on a worksheet about transcendentalism, I primarily focused on helping her get as clear as possible about the claims that characterize transcendentalism. Finally, I introduced the student to an online, free resource, composed of articles written by professional philosophers from universities around the world--which contains an excellent entry on transcendentalism, and I suggested that the student study the article, in order to learn more about the philosophical and historical context of transcendentalism.

The student worked on reading, writing, and math today. We started by writing in her book about dogs, and adding pictures that matched the narrative. We also played a numbers game together: we each picked two cards from a fish-themed deck, and added the number of fish from each card to calculate the total for each hand. The student tends to count with her fingers rather than add in her head, but this is very normal among children her age (I'm not concerned about it at this point, just making a mental note to observe it over time.). I gave her a book about reading clocks to take home and read with her parents.

The student completed a worksheet covering four pronunciations of "ea," read up to the last paragraph of a passage about robots, and answered questions about the passage. Afterwards, he practiced spelling words with "ea" and other words with letter tiles. He is still showing satisfactory effort and reading excellently. On Monday we will continue studying vowel combinations, start a new spelling list, finish the passage about robots, and read a new passage. I want to be sure that he keeps up his sharpness as the semester continues, so we will discuss the meaning of his reading and work on writing paragraphs.

The student and I reviewed vocabulary flashcards, and we replaced words she knows with new ones she has not mastered. She is making good progress using the flashcards to increase reading vocabulary. We worked on reading mechanics and comprehension from a book of her choice. We also practiced multiplication facts. She seems to remember the multiplication facts better when she writes them down, rather than just through oral review.
