Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on revising her final draft of the Berlin Wall paper. The student made huge improvements. She had great logic and flow in her intro paragraph."
"The student and I had a great English session reviewing a paper that he will be turning in for his English class next week. He has done a fantastic job honing his writing and analysis skills on this assignment. His teacher had reviewed this paper and remarked that it was a very good first draft! He and I continued to work on strengthening the paper and by the end of the session, he was very close to a final draft. He is definitely taking ownership of the concepts we are talking about together, and is doing a great job applying the concepts we discuss to his own writing. As a result, his relationship to his writing is becoming much stronger and he is now constantly reading his writing with an eye to revisions. It will be important to keep practicing and solidifying the skills that he is learning. He has made great strides and seems rightly proud of his progress."
"The student and I spent our entire session working on his speech for communications, which was a 5-8 minute presentation that taught the audience a procedure. He wrote the introductory and conclusion paragraphs and sketched out the other material. He also practiced the draft of the speech and prepared his visual aids for the presentation on Friday, and I expect that it will go well. He has a strong presentation style and appears to be comfortable with the nature of his content."
