1)You will fill out the student learning profile (included in syllabus) on each student you tutor. All journal entries pertaining to this student will be located BEHIND this profile in the section of your notebook, “Log of Tutoring”.If you tutor more than one child you will have a profile sheet and journal entries for child #1, profile/journal entries for child #2, etc.2)You will write a journal entry for each tutoring session. The journal entry should contain the following information:a)Date of session, time of session: beginning and ending (i.e., 9:00-10:00AM); grade and subject in which you are tutoring.b)Host teacher’s name and school in which you are tutoringc)Instead of a name, you will refer to your student by a number (Student #1, Student #2, etc.). Confidentiality of the students must be protected at all times. NEVER refer to your student(s) throughout this assignment by name!d)Session Objective: What is the objective of the tutoring session? Are you reviewing previously taught information, using a different strategy to reinforce information, assisting the student in completing an assignment, etc?e)Give a detailed, play-by-play account of the tutoring session. Think about the following: How did you approach the task? How did you develop a working relationship with the student? What barriers did you/student have to overcome? How did you reinforce learning?, etc. There is no specific length to the journal entries, but you need to give a very detailed description of each session. f)After each tutoring session, write a short “note home” to the caregiver that indicates how the student responded to the tutoring session. It would be helpful for you to also indicate how this student can 9/6/15
continue to work on the skill at home. This will be a good time to use a little creativity. For example, card games that reinforce numbers (Uno, various forms of Concentration, etc.), activities that reinforce visual discrimination, patterns, etc. (such as jig saw puzzles), games that reinforce money skills (Monopoly), are fun ways of practicing particular skills that aren’t worksheet oriented. This activity is designed to provide you practice in home/school communication. Each note may be included at the bottom of each journal entry.III.
