Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on drafting and organization for a history paper. We also brainstormed ideas for content and form for a language arts paper."
"Today the student and I reviewed a practice test she took, focusing primarily on the answers she got wrong and the questions she got right but had a difficult time with. We discussed some strategies for checking over her work and doing scratch work neatly and efficiently. We also did some additional practice problems related to those she struggled with, particularly fractions and percents. We spent the remainder of the session discussing the structure of a 5 paragraph essay. We talked about the format of a basic paragraph (topic sentence, 3 supporting details, concluding sentence) and talked about how to expand each of the three supporting details into body paragraphs. We reviewed basic mechanics such as indentation and punctuation, as well as the importance of using word variety, transition words, and clear, straight-forward language."
"We worked on researching fundraising opportunities and scientific research methodologies to include in assignment."
