Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"* We reviewed 40 of the 120 vocab words that are slated for 6th graders. * The student knew definitions for 21 of the 40. * I assigned him 4 words to memorize, and know how to use them in a sentence for next session. * I gave him a "reading slide". By using his peripheral vision and the slide, he will learn to read quicker and smoother along with increased comprehension."
"I worked with the first student to prepare for a vocab test, and for the second hour with her sister (4th grade) on a writing assignment for school. The vocabulary review went well - we went over the pronunciation, meaning, and part of speech of each word, then the student wrote her own sentences using each of the vocabulary words. The second student and I looked through a writing assignment, which also went well. We focused on expressing ideas clearly and concisely."
"We began the hour by looking at a small homework assignment he had for school. After this, we spent the end of the hour reviewing and grading the reading exercises he had done for me over the break."
