Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During today's session, the student and I spent the entirety of our time practicing his writing skills. Specifically, we worked on (and completed) one of his required writing assignments for class, in which he selects a topic from a sheet of writing topics and produces a short story based on it. He needed a little spelling help here and there, but overall wrote quite well and was mostly able to spell the words correctly. It's my understanding that he has two such assignments to write and turn in every Monday, so his extra practice should presumably consist of writing the second paragraph for this week. He did a good job today and is demonstrating considerable improvement to me."
"The student did a dry run of the PowerPoint presentation he's delivering this Friday. He had good command of the content and delivered it fairly well. We also discussed the interview questions he is preparing for his thesis research. The questions targeted important issues but just needed some rewording to invite detailed responses."
"I helped the student make the final edits on his Old Man and the Sea essay. I also helped him edit the introduction, conclusion, and works cited page for his GMO research essay. His writing has really improved since our first session. For next week, he will bring a draft of his History class book review for us to review and edit. We will also put the finishing touches on his GMO research paper."
