Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student completed his freewrite and we discussed his upcoming science test on Friday. We spent much of the session covering what we thought would be on the exam: elements, atoms, molecules, compounds, valence electrons, and chemical equations."
"In this session, we studied for the student's upcoming exam on verbal phrases. We defined and identified participial phrases, infinitive phrases, and gerund phrases, and then identified whether each was used as a subjective complement, direct object, subject, or appositive. Then we reviewed the students' inferences about Dante's aliases in chapters 16-19 of "The Count of Monte Cristo.""
"We started with a warm-up reading on honeybees to practice with main ideas. I used this reading to discuss with him how to read transitions and to use detail paragraphs to find the main idea. For the rest of the session we finished the Monkey's Paw reading and discussed language, tone, and motive."
