Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Much more progress has been made today (close to 7 pages double-spaced had been written). The student also reported that he had started to format some summaries into the needed annotated bibliography entries. I gave feedback and editing on the existing partial draft. Again, we reviewed organization strategy based on "media control methods/techniques" and discussed whether a few more concepts would fit into this framework as new items or sub-items. I verified with the student that the final due date would in fact be on Friday. We scheduled one additional extended session on Thursday. We will continue working on the complete final draft of the whole paper."
"We finished the editing and completion of the student's paper on the American Dream. We needed to shore up a few of his main paragraphs with some more detail that backed up his main theme, and in addition, had to firm up his conclusion paragraph. He had great reference quotes, but added one more that helped improve his thoughts on rising healthcare costs. His idea for this paper was good, and his outline was done well, as was sticking to his original plan of how to construct the paper. Again, he showed some more improvement, which is a real positive."
"This week the student and I worked especially hard on remembering which words ending in "s" require an apostrophe. We did some handwriting practice as well, and the student has showed a lot of improvement in this area! She's more conscious of starting the letters on the line!"
