Ok,I think this will be a tricky one! The little reception girl came around today and the parents want me to start tutoring her. She was quite manic jumping on the sofas, wondering around so I am worried about her being able to concentrate much, Hopefully, she will be a bit better when the parents aren't there. I suggested 45 minute sessions but they want an hour so I'll see how she gets on but might have to suggest it again if it's not working out. Anyway, it turns out that they want speech and language tution really, and the dad said talking to her and new vocab. English is her second language and her English is limited, she is not really saying whole sentences and uses jesters to get you to do what she wants eg put something down. Apparently, she is up to the right level with everything else! This is tricky and especially tricky to do for one hour, so I think I will definately mix it in with some maths and threading and pattern and drawing work too. Any suggestions? I was thinking of reading books together, discussing the story, the characters,pictures and what's happening, stickers in sticker books, computer work, re-telling stories, pictures and getting her to describe her picture, making sentences.
