Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I used this lesson to look over the student's first draft of one personal statement. After our edits, this is nearly ready to submit. We spent the rest of the time editing her short responses."
"Revised drafts, read selections from James Ellroy, David Ogilvy, and Mike Edison, completed vocabulary exercises, discussed rewriting techniques, assigned work for next session."
"Today, the student decided he would prefer to return to grammar and syntax, as opposed to working on class writing assignments. We began by discussing the four different types of sentence structures, and, in doing so, it became apparent that we needed to revisit independent and dependent clauses. After reviewing clauses and discussing sentence structure, we went over the four sentence types. He picked this up pretty quickly. Next time, we'll begin again at the beginning, reviewing the grammar rules we covered last spring."
