Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the first term of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and then reviewed Chapter 12 and the effects of the Great Depression, in preparation of the test. I quizzed the student on the concepts, to which he did very well, and we covered vocabulary words that were giving him trouble."
"I think that the student keeps growing with his engagement and his writing. When we first got started in our initial session, he did everything I asked him to do, but he wasn't very vocal about what he did and did not understand about the course material he was using in class. Today when we worked on a DBQ for his class, he had an argument prepared ,and he stay focused even during the parts of the essay development that he didn't see as a strength like the introduction of his paper. We were able to create a bare bones outline for him to fill in with the rest of his supporting arguments and information to finish the paper."
"After brief discussion of her continuing essay, the student and I focused on domestic and global challenges, and changes in the early Cold War (roughly 1945-1964), including the importance of the third world, post colonialism, the new suburbs and changes to American ways of life, methods for interrogating and understanding historical imagery, the importance of domino theory in geopolitics, and the military-industrial complex."
