Session Summaries by Phonics Tutors

Phonics Tutoring review by Karen in Akron, OH
First, the student had to write out ten sentences on his new vocabulary words for me. He recalled all but one sufficiently. I have copied and pasted his sentences to a file. Today we covered more aspects of the traditional fairy tale, and then we read an Indian fairy tale on the wisdom of taking advice. He confessed that he did not understand it after he had read it. So I asked him what the son of the raja had to do after his father died, and where he went to gain wisdom. I asked him what the plowman in the field told him. I asked him to characterize the three pieces of wisdom which the son paid for, and the one piece of wisdom he was given for free. He was able to repeat three of the four, but had difficulty explaining the one about being asked to follow the will of the crowd. We examined the wisdom in taking advice when asked to pass judgment in a strange neighborhood. We took the whole concept apart. Then we discussed the ending and made some possible interpretations. We discussed the power of repetition in a tale and I pointed out four other versions of the tale from other countries. I asked the student to read the others and reflect on what this particular tale has to share with the listener/reader. We then reviewed the requirements of the new essay assignment. I am going to keep on testing his perceptions and interpretations like this on the spot with these simple stories. I believe that this is the way to helping build the ability to interpret the world of narrative. Following that, we reviewed the elements of parallel structure, which is familiar to the student, but then I gave him an exercise sheet with truly messy examples of faulty parallelism that he has to fix. I want him to rewrite all these sentences for next Wednesday. I have also sent his mother copies of the assignment, words, and exercises.

Phonics Tutoring review by Olga in Akron, OH
The student and I reviewed reading and math material during the session. We began with reading comprehension paragraphs and questions and the student had no trouble identifying the main idea within each paragraph. We then transitioned to some multiplication and introduction to fraction multiplication, which she also was excited about and interested in. We ended the session by reading one of the student's favorite books, The Twelfth Night. The student was able to retain information and understand what was happening in the story. She could retell the events in her own words and draw inferences based on the facts provided.

Phonics Tutoring review by Michael in Akron, OH
During the session, the student continued working on an essay about Animal Farm. During this time, we analyzed the role of literacy in the novel and discussed whether that message holds true in real life.
