Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Both girls read aloud in their novels. We reviewed vocabulary as we went, and paused throughout to analyze what we were reading and to make predictions about what would happen next in the book."
"We reviewed math - opposites number train homework, reading and writing - subjects (nominative, compound) and predicates, and reading comprehension."
"No homework tonight, just our nightly 30min reading. The student had a few assignments and also nightly reading."
"The students and I worked separately but followed the same prompt. We read first, helping them get more comfortable sounding out longer words. We then did the review section I created from last week's tough patches. We studied nouns, verbs, and adjectives; the -tion ending; long vs. short vowels; and how to make them."
"The students continued to work on paired passages. They summarized and discussed two to three paragraphs at a time, of their individual passages. They compared and contrasted this week passages to last week's passages on a similar topic. They were engaged and very cooperative."
"The students largely worked on their writing skills today. Student 1 refined his organizational method into a working rough draft of what will eventually become a five-paragraph essay. Student 2 took his assessment for his chosen book and received a B- after creating a plot chart by locating and defining the seminal moments of the overarching narrative or story. He also worked on notation skills, specifically, general outline formatting and how to incorporate thoughts under other "main" thoughts through the use of Roman numerals and alphabetized sequences."
