Phonics Tutoring review by Ulyssia in Westmont, IL
Today, I gave the student some tips on essay writing and the overall writing process. He has great ideas; however, his spelling is a bit off. We will work on that.

Phonics Tutoring review by Lisa in Westmont, IL
Today I introduced the idea of proofreading and editing. Each student read the other two's Compare and Contrast and Narrative essays. The exercises consisted of reading with a critical eye, organizing one's thoughts, and making notes on the hardcopy for the writer to receive. We discussed how to read with a critical eye, and how to accept constructive criticism. I showed them what to look for when proofreading, and how to separate comments about content from comments about style and formatting. We then discussed the opinions, and I helped each writer to listen to the opinions of the others, and then decide which to incorporate and which to ignore. The emphasis was placed on objectivity. Because they're siblings, they were comfortable with each other's style of communications. For next week, they are to re-write both essays for clarity, incorporating suggested changes. They must be prepared to explain/defend why they did or did not incorporate the suggested changes from the "proofreaders." I told them the next step is that I will read and edit their essays for yet a third rewrite. We will continue working on proofreading and editing essays through the end of this semester.

Phonics Tutoring review by Kathy in Westmont, IL
The student needed help with summer reading for PCA. We read the first 3 chapters of "The Time Machine," by H.G Wells. She was very engaged during the session. We annotated the text and worked on a review of the journal assignment for the reading. The novel has 12 chapters, so we decided to try to get through 3 chapters during each session.

Phonics Tutoring review by Amanda in Westmont, IL
The student needs more practice with the words with the suffixes with the -tion and -sion. I made a list of some of the words with that spelling pattern. She mastered all but two of the third grade sight words that I quizzed her on, so she made flashcards for those. All in all, she has made progress and increased her confidence with reading. Reading the rest of the Anna Banana book is a be goal for before school starts. Then, she can bring more of the series to school for silent reading times. It has been a pleasure to work with her.

Phonics Tutoring review by Evan in Westmont, IL
The student performed at an average level today. We practiced several sentences that included compound words (backpack, butterfly, etc.). While he was reading most of the sentences presented to him with relative fluency, I wondered if he was simply recognizing many of the words. For example, at one point he said "book bag" when he saw "backpack," signaling that he had memorized what the word had looked like, and what it related to. This is a good thing in many respects, but at the same time it makes it difficult to gauge whether our session time is being used in the most productive manner possible. I would much rather he read independently than read words he has already memorized.
