Reading and Writing - A Review of Experience and Reflection

***** paper reflects on my experiences tutoring two 6th grade students for 10 sessions. Half needed reading comprehension help and half needed help with writing skills. Overall the experience tutoring others was positive. One of the *****, Jessica, was an exceptional reader, but experienced difficulty when trying to put her thoughts to paper to provide adequate ***** samples. Nathan had difficulty with both reading and writing. The course taken introduced principles of learning that enabled me to tutor these students **********.
