Tutoring Lesson Plan: Session 1


Basic Information:
9/21/2015
Tutor: Monica Izzo
Tutees/Grade/s: Second Grade

Session #: 1

Date:

Support for ELs: As I read my personal book, I will speak slowly and clearly.
I will clarify the meaning of words I believe my ELs might not understand. For
example, I will point out on a map the location of New York.
RICA connection: p.xvii Introduction; Common Strategies for Meeting the
Needs of All Learners; (B)English Learners and Speakers of Nonstandard
English; (5) Modeling
Support for Learning Challenged Student: (ADHD): As I walk my tutees
to my assigned tutoring room, I will ask them if they need to get a drink or
go to the bathroom. I will give tutees clear and concise directions and
behavior expectations for each activity so they understand what is expected
of them. I will compliment tutees when they are on task and using
appropriate behavior. I will allow students to sit on the floor to do the
independent activity while I assess the tutees individually. This will allow for
some movement and variety of location and activity to help the tutees stay
more focused throughout the session.
RICA connection: p.7 Competency 1, (5) Engaging and Motivating
Students; (A) A Stimulating Learning Environment That Promotes Success
Introduction:
1 Hi, I am Ms. Izzo and I get to be your tutor! I am so excited to start this
adventure with you, its going to be a great one so lets get started!
2 Today we will start off by getting to know each other, Ill start with
reading a book All about me and I will be asking you questions all
about you as we turn each page! Then I would like for us to brainstorm
some group rules for each tutoring session that way we stay on track
and learn as much as we possibly can! We will then move on to talking
about what you like about reading and writing, in order to provide me
with what I need to know about you for when I plan my lessons for
each torturing session! I will then give you each a survey about reading
and writing, be honest there is no right or wrong answer and I will not
be grading this, I just want to know each of you. I would like to move
on by asking you individually some questions to see where you are at
with your reading (kind of like your AR level) so I can provide you books
to read and understand. Then we will move on to work on words, I will

talk to you individually so again I can provide material that you can
work with in future sessions! Our last task is to write on your individual
notepads our group rules, that way we wont forget for next time.
