Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We continued reading in each of the girls' assigned books for school: "Fahrenheit 451" for the first student, and "The War of the Worlds" for the second."
"For the first 30 minutes, the student practiced his phonics by completing assignments from his workbook. For the last 30 minutes, he completed exercises that reinforced his phonics."
"The student worked on his social studies, completing a worksheet on the chapter. He also worked on his book report."
"The students reviewed letter recognition and letter sounds. They seem to know all the letter names! The letter sounds they need to work on are all of the vowel sounds (a, e, i, o, and u), w, r, m, h, q, y, n, and l. I had them name beginning sounds of words that I said to them. They did very well. They are like sponges and will be reading in no time!"
"The students reviewed their strengths and weaknesses in reading and writing. The students reviewed the parts of speech with my guidance. I conducted a discussion on how to gather evidence from text to create a constructed response answer."
"The students worked on developing a research paper on a topic of their choice. I assisted them in completing outlines on their topics, and using graphic organizers. They wrote the introductions to their papers. I discussed types of resources to be used in gathering factual information (newspapers, magazines, books, viable internet site). They also recorded resources used, including title, author, date, and type of resource used. They were enthusiastic during the session."
