Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We studied the textbook and went over exam corrections. We discussed test taking strategies. The student is doing well."
"The student had an exam the following day. It covered material about nationalism and the unification of various European countries. We spent a lot of time talking about specific people and how they were involved in the struggle for unification. I made the student rewrite the important facts and names to help him memorize the information."
"At the beginning of our session the student shared some very exciting news: She received a 100% on the most recent assignment we worked on together! We were both thrilled with her stellar work. Today we outlined two essays centered around urban development in the late 19th century. The first asked about causes and effects of the declining birthrate in Europe. The second asked about the economic class structure in the same period and if it accurately reflected Marx's theory of class revolution. We have settled into a nice pattern while working on these outlines. I help her find relevant details in her textbook and supplement that with my own historical knowledge. We then talk through a structure for the essay and at the end I asked her to create a thesis for the paper. She told me she is much more comfortable writing a thesis now than she used to be and I think she has had fantastic progress as a historical scholar! We came up with two strong outlines that demonstrate the complexity of history."
