Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we continued to go over Romeo and Juliet. The student seems to be having a better understanding of the text and was able to point out examples to answer his homework questions."
"The student had to read Act 4 in Romeo and Juliet. We read together and worked on discussing what was happening, and the student completed a worksheet on the act."
"Today, the student and I spent the bulk of our time discussing her essay on "The Tempest". She is to write about the theme of entrapment and how it is conveyed throughout the piece. She already had a rough outline, so we expanded on her ideas and discussed several more, specifically how the metaphor for entrapment can be extended to everyone experiencing some sort of physical, mental, or emotional entrapment. We looked over her thesis statement to make sure that it addresses the question asked. I left the student with the goal to finish the paper before dinner, take a break, and then review/edit the paper. I also told her to review the papers that she has written throughout the year to see where she commonly loses points. She should focus on those items as she reviews her current paper. The student has a great grasp of the ideas and content presented in "The Tempest" and I expect that it will show through her paper. The student and I had great discussion today and I enjoyed her insights into the play. Good work!"
