Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked for the rest of the session using the middle level independent school entrance exam as a template, gauging the student's abilities with standardized reading comprehension tests. The student showed high understanding of main idea and narrative structure, though I would like to try with a more rigid time limit to make sure he can make the write multiple-choice answers in the prescribed time. Based on our work so far, the student's most pressing need is to organize and write essays of proper length and structure within a set time limit. Our last few meetings before the student moves will focus on responding to prompts of ascending complexity, outlining, and completing multi-paragraph essays within a set amount of time."
"To start this session the student reviewed his homework and then revised it. Then, we discussed essay topics and the student began brainstorming for the essay."
"We worked on social studies project focusing on expressive language to convey thought and meaning appropriate for the setting."
