Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, we focused mainly on reading comprehension. We began with reviewing the concept of main idea in reading passage. We also went over summarizing so that she can not only synthesize her thinking, but also read carefully enough to support accurate comprehension. She has great fluency, but sometimes is not retaining what she is reading. We took notes while she was reading and is something that we will continue to practice. We also went over rereading especially on passages that she didn't understand completely. She had great effort today and improved on her summarizing by the end of our session! We also did a review of math practice. She is doing a much better job at checking her answers before she gives her final answer."
"Today the student worked on reading and comprehending a level X, non-fiction book. He was able to make some strong predictions using a picture walk and determine if those predictions were correct or incorrect. He does a good job using pictures and graphs to help support his understanding."
"The student and I reviewed his writing on the Magic Treehouse book. We also read a portion of The Loser, which he is currently reading for school. We then spent time on vocabulary building, working on identifying antonyms and creating sentence to learn the new words."
