Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Phonics Tutoring review by Casey in Worcester, MA
We continued to work on persuasive writing, with a focus on identifying and explaining themes. The student did an analysis of a Shakespearean sonnet and compared its themes of love to those in Romeo and Juliet. We also reviewed roots and affixes to help expand the student's writing vocabulary and practiced using more active, engaging verbs when writing.

Phonics Tutoring review by Connie in Worcester, MA
I had my first session with the student on Wednesday evening. His mother updated me on his current class situation and areas of improvement she hopes to target. The student and I worked on his language/grammar worksheet with "subordinate" and "independent" clauses and simple/compound/compound-complex sentence structures. We used his love and knowledge of all things related to comic books and integrated those characters into simple, compound, and compound-complex sentences about ice cream. He excelled at identifying the difference between subordinate and independent clauses. That came fairly naturally to him. We also reviewed his "classwork" sheet which included a vocabulary word such as "adversary," and he used Batman/Joker, Magneto/X-Men, and Optimus Prime/Megatron examples. Spelling is an area we will continue to work on. When I had him spell a word out slowly, he could come up with the correct spelling when prompted. I gave him some mnemonic device tricks to remember ways to spell certain words. I also reviewed the function of the apostrophe with him, telling him that the apostrophe essentially replaces a letter (o) in doesn't/does not.

Phonics Tutoring review by Jordan in Worcester, MA
The student and I worked on his writing. Primarily, we ended up working on grammatical issues that I believe are foundational to making him more comfortable with expressing himself with writing.

Phonics Tutoring review by Lindsey in Worcester, MA
We began the session with reading the nonfiction book "Puppies," and the student did well with the reading and needed few prompts with retelling and comprehension. Next was the word ladder, and she struggled with the -oo and short u sound, but she did well otherwise. We completed pages 5, 12-13, and 14-15 in Smart Alec; page 5 was a crossword puzzle for sight words. She had to pick the appropriate missing sight word to complete a sentence. For the short stories, she did a great job! We worked on finding evidence in the text to answer the multiple choice questions if we didn't remember a part in the story. Then we reviewed r-controlled vowels and vowel digraphs. We finished with reading aloud "Annie and Snowball."

Phonics Tutoring review by Tenzin in Worcester, MA
During our session, we reviewed the student's homework (sight words and math). We used manipulatives to add numbers to 8. He also practiced using his fingers. We also studied number words (1-8). He did an excellent job. We also worked on scissor cutting skills. We will continue to work on these skills in our future sessions.
