Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I went over clauses and sentence classes with the student today. We did an interactive lesson reviewing independent clauses, dependent clauses, subordinating conjunctions, and coordinating conjunctions. Then we completed some exercises on the material together. We also read over some of her previous writing samples looking for examples of the four sentence classes."
"The student had two writing assignments based on Flannery O'Conner's story "The Life You Save May Be Your Own." She had a short Q&A homework due 12/19, followed by an essay due on 12/13. The student and I worked on identifying three quotations and describing their importance; while she wrote about them, I found and emailed her references on the theme of heroism underlying the assignment. I also emailed her a link to several style manual sources for methods of incorporating citations of web sites and online material into her bibliography/endnotes."
"We focused primarily on handwriting and homework. The student was very attentive for most of the session. He is doing very well overall."
