Session Summaries by Summer Tutors

Peoria, AZ Summer tutoring
The student and I read from "Beans on the Roof" for 17 minutes. I then had her reattempt the activity of writing a 3+ sentence paragraph, detailing some of what she'd just read about. I very actively walked her through the process to ensure it did not overwhelm, confuse, intimidate, nor frustrate her. I first asked her to tell me about some of the new things that occurred during today's reading, compared to the last we read from this book. I reminded her of the series of things that took place and the order they occurred in. Then I asked her to write down a few of those "highlights" (explaining to her what that word meant), one sentence at a time, where the sentences make sense together, like the sentences in the paragraphs we read from the book. As she wrote her sentences, I ensured she didn't make them too repetitive either. Upon completion, the student's paragraph turned out very well. I left her with the tasks of writing her ten "ea" phonics words, and wrote 6-7 examples of such words, in case she got stuck. I also reminded her to complete her math homework on the computer, and asked that she start thinking about, discussing with her parents, and writing a few sentences each day towards the Holiday Traditions writing assignment that is due on Friday. Something to note is I have been so very impressed, as of late, with the progression in the student's reading abilities! She does an excellent job getting into character when reading these days. She also has become more conscious about using proper inflection for sentences ending with a question mark or exclamation point. It is really a joy to listen to her read stories aloud. Her vocabulary has steadily expanded, as well, as there tend to be fewer and fewer words that she mispronounces or has a tough time with.

Although the student was a bit uncooperative today, we did manage to quickly work through his reading/phonics homework. We then moved on to some big number addition, adding four- and five-digit numbers using carrying/borrowing. Though he tends to admit defeat easily, when he gets on a roll with these, he has no problem at all, regardless of how big the numbers are. (I'm going to try to continue building his confidence in his math abilities!) We also were able to do a few boat logic puzzles - the classic farmer/wolf/sheep/grain one, as well as the three priests/three cannibals one. Though he didn't care for some of the other logic puzzles I tried with him (e.g. weight comparison puzzle), he really enjoyed these, and they seemed to really exercise his critical thinking skills, so I'd like to continue finding exercises like that going forward! [As a side-note, I'm a little concerned about his behavior recently - he bragged to me about teasing one of classmates, and he's seemed less focused than usual. I talked with him about how he might have hurt his classmate's feelings, and he seemed to understand - but given how sweet he has generally been, this was a little surprising to me. I spoke with her a bit about this and think we both understand where it's coming from (he's recently switched medications), so I'll just plan to monitor it going forward to make sure it continues to improve.]

Today we went over the reading lesson I had sent previously as well as some math games. We worked on identifying math fact families. The student did a great job working through all the assignments. For the reading assignment, we worked on the vocabulary words that were in the text as well as comprehension questions. I had her give me examples of the vocab words to show understanding. I will be sending practice assignments/activities for her to work on this week.

The student revised a paper for AP History and made all of the corrections his teacher asked him to. He will need to turn in the paper at school. He also had to write a blog post for biology to respond to a prompt about drug use. His teacher required that he also reply to two other student comments, which he did. I continued to help him review for his Biology final next week, and we have planned to finish his English study guide on Thursday this week.

We used an online resource to study for her exam on Friday. I quizzed her and we went over some items that she wasn't sure about.

In terms of content, we covered lots of ground. The student told me about the career day she participated in by 'shadowing' and interviewing a local hairstylist. The experience seemed to open her eyes to explore all options career-wise, even though she sees herself going to college to major in audio engineering. We reviewed her grades; they remain the same. Her goal in math is to earn a B for a final grade. Further, we discussed any outstanding assignments and that her math packet is complete. She continues to study nightly for her conversational final exam in Spanish, developing a script with her classmate. She has an additional project due Tuesday that she will be completing tonight: a collage for her humanities class related to the novel 'The Book Thief.' Finally, we reviewed her most recently written academic, home, and social goals along with her intended action steps. She agreed that 'focus and consistency' is the key to reaching these goals. For the first time, she explained that if she earns all B's, her parents will agree to have her apply for a driver's learning permit. Momentum continuing.
