Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During today's session, the student completed exercises on finding the main idea and supporting details of passages. By doing so, the student was able to pick out the main point of the text and use the support in her essay. We then worked on an informative essay prompt."
"The student and I read the last chapter of My Daniel and completed his notes for the novel. He has a plot summary and cycles activity to complete this week, as well as a seven-paragraph essay. I told him I would help him with any finishing touches on the essay next Thursday when I meet with him again. The second student and I read from Walk Two Moons. She wrote bullet points summarizing the chapter and we discussed. The final student and I made our own flashcards for upper and lower case letters, as well as picture cards for the sounds of each letter. We concluded the session with games of "Memory" with upper case letters."
"Today we discussed the parent's concerns; then I evaluated the student's reading and comprehension skills. He did 9 exercises in his workbooks, identified the main idea in several passages, and wrote sentences in response. He has one HW assignment, to read an article of his choosing and write down the main idea from each paragraph. The focus of our sessions will be reading comprehension and written expression of knowledge."
