Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This session was heavily focused on reading skills, writing skills and drawing personal connections to further comprehend the work. We first began by writing a news report and then we acted it out. After that, we read a short story about estimation which incorporated an element of mathematics to reading and then a quick assessment that included multiple choice questions and short response questions, I also created a writing response which asked him if he ever used estimation in his personal life. Lastly, we read another short story that involved a cliffhanger in which he was supposed to write an alternate ending and complete an assessment."
"Both students and I continue to work on their critical reading skills. They have difficulty understanding motivations of characters and understanding questions that require them to explain the "why" of the story. We will continue to work on these reading skills. Both students have extra practice."
"The first student is in the middle of a few large projects. He is working on a project where he needs to make a box full of "artifacts," which are derived from a book he read. In this case, he is in the middle of reading "The Witches." He wrote the descriptions of one of his artifacts during this session, and we also brainstormed what two of the other artifacts could be. We also went over some of his math homework. I worked with both the students to practice their spelling words, as their school is having a spelling bee a few weeks from now. They both did well."
