Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session, I looked over the student's homework essay that I assigned him our last session. He did a good job of answering the question. However, he has difficulty remembering to write letters completely, put periods at the ends of sentences, and capitalize words at the beginning of each sentence. He also wrote run on sentences, but when we read through it together he was able to identify some of these mistakes and fix them himself. Therefore, I had us edit his paper and recopy it for the final draft. I decided today to focus on improving his handwriting because his parents let me know that was the only class he received a 'B' in at school. All his other grades were A's. So I had him slowly recopy his essay onto the next page, making him pay attention to each letter he was writing. We finished the session reading a couple chapters from his chapter book."
"Today was my first session with the student. We established goals for tutoring, and worked on his writing skills by reviewing two recent papers for his English Lit and American History courses."
