Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we began with working on touch math addition of 2 digit numbers. The student was able to do several problems with a little reminding of how to make the dots and to carry the ten from an answer in the ones place more than ten. We worked through six problems in this fashion. Then, I began introducing the concept of a number bond and put ten candies in front of the student to illustrate making number bonds of ten. She began practicing with these number bonds and was able to get through six of them before reading. Then, we went on to reading and she listened to a book from the night before and then read two books on her own, before listening to them and taking the quiz on them."
"Sight Words: The student knew all 8 sight words and received 8 more for next week. Sight Word Sentences: The student completed fill-in-the-blank sentences using her new 8 sight words. She really enjoys this activity! Integrated Technology: The student read Pete's Sheep and we reviewed all long vowel patterns for long /a/e/I/o/u. Comprehension/Fluency/Accuracy: Passage titled, Parts of a Fish, a nonfiction text. Her accuracy rates increased with each reading."
"Worked on summer homework and reading comprehension. Student reads at grade level. Going further we will work on reading comprehension at or above grade level."
"The student has a test on word definitions tomorrow. We went through the list of words he needs to know for his test and defined them in a simpler manner. We also constructed sentences using the words so he can get exposed to context clues for his test."
"The student has been making wonderful progress with his reading! Today, we worked together on a few different reading comprehension worksheets. His ability to read fluently is improving. Sometimes he has a bit of difficulty staying focused, but he is always really a pleasure to tutor!"
"The student has been working on his final project for his creative writing class, which I reviewed and provided commentary and critiques for. He does an excellent job of creating atmosphere in his work, especially in his use of cryptic symbolism."
