Session Summaries by English Grammar and Syntax Tutors

English Grammar and Syntax Tutoring review by Laura in Lawrence, MA
Today, we worked on To Kill a Mockingbird Chapters 4-8. We reviewed these chapters by answering comprehension questions. I asked her some comprehension questions from each of the chapters from the curriculum. She remembered about 60% of them before looking back in the text. I noticed she has a difficult time looking back in a book to retrieve information. We talked about key words and what to look for based on when an event occurred. Overall, she is comprehending this story. After answering these questions, I sent her a quiz on Chapters 4-8. It was multiple choice and covered much of what we talked about. She missed one question and understood why she missed that. Until we meet again, she is to read Chapter 9 and 10, and I sent her the questions for those chapters so she knows what to focus on while she writes her sticky notes. I think the comprehension questions are easier while she reads rather than reading a large section and having to go back to answer the questions.

English Grammar and Syntax Tutoring review by Terence in Lawrence, MA
Tonight we worked on some final worksheets given to the student by his teacher for over the spring break period. We completed a worksheet regarding the state. It was a sheet where he had to distinguish geographical items for the most part. We went over some of the geography vocabulary words so he would have a better understanding of what he was doing. He had to identify direction, rivers and border areas of the state. Next we worked on phonics. First we reviewed the previous letter blends we handled in previous sessions, ee, ai, ay, oo. Tonight we worked on the blends of au and aw and how they sounded the same. He had to pronounce and remember the sound for the example words, and then match them with pictures. He wrote out the words and sounded out the sounds as he did. We also worked on changing singular nouns into plural nouns by adding either an s or es to the end of words depending on how the word ended. It took a few tries for him to understand what we were doing, and I had to explain how the addition of the s or es changed it to a plural noun. I gave him extra work on this to take home. Finally we worked on a story where there were blanks and the student had to choose from a variety of words for that specific blank line. In this way he was able to make the story his own and quite entertaining. We did not complete this exercise and will continue to work on it next week. In addition to the plural noun transformation I also gave him a sheet to complete on common and proper nouns. So he has something to work with during his last few days off of school. We continue to work on sounding out words and breaking down the sounds and syllables of longer words. On several longer words, we had to go slow and pronounce each syllable before he was able to put the sounds together and say the word. But over all it was a good session and he focused fairly well on the work at hand. I was pleased and surprised he did as well as he did on some of those longer and more complicated words I mentioned earlier.

English Grammar and Syntax Tutoring review by Sharon in Lawrence, MA
* We worked on another set of phonetic blends; she knew most of them. * I introduced her to a synopsis of Helen Keller's biography; she was awed. Then we talked a little of what it might be like and how to do an experiment in a completely dark room. * I familiarized her with the definitions of 15 new vocab words on which we will be working. * We read part of the next chapter of the book.

English Grammar and Syntax Tutoring review by Sari in Lawrence, MA
Today we focused on preparing for the ACT. We completed questions that covered: hyphens, semi-colons, parallel structure, conjunctions, comparatives and superlatives, preposition errors, verb-tense errors, subjective and objective pronouns, and dangling modifiers. We discussed why a response was right or wrong and what the student should look out for in the future.

English Grammar and Syntax Tutoring review by Ramya in Lawrence, MA
Reading: We have begun to focus on vocabulary - both school-based and tutoring-based. We have devised strategies to practice the vocabulary. We reviewed THIEVES for a final time and will begin practicing "during reading" strategies next time. Science: We focused on science vocabulary by extracting key words, drawing pictures to remind us of meanings and using the definition in a sentence. Next time: We will come up with a study incentive plan.

English Grammar and Syntax Tutoring review by Myles in Lawrence, MA
In this session, the student and I began with some warm-up writing exercises, then moved on to covering figurative language, an important topic covered on exams. We did a number of exercises related to identifying different kinds of figurative language (simile, metaphor, hyperbole, alliteration, personification, etc.). He continues to impress me with his retention of information and his fast learning. Next week we will finish our work on figurative language.
