Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During today's session, the student and I began our timed essay-writing practice for the AP English Language and Composition exam. Using one of his practice texts for the course, we began working through the process of appropriately setting up the format/ structure of a typical AP exam essay, spending approximately half the session on brainstorming and selecting appropriate pieces of the sources to quote in the essay and the other half on actually practicing the writing itself. He isn't really struggling with any aspect of essay writing in particular, but just needs a little practice integrating quotes into the text as he writes. We will finish our practice on the current essay during our next session."
"This was my first meeting with the student who is taking the assessment Literature and the Language and Composition tests. She is well prepared and learns quickly. She performs well in anything that she has learned and she is already a very good writer. She needs to familiarize herself more with certain technical terms."
"We worked on both the multiple choice section and the prose analysis essay. We went through 2 multiple choice sections that she had already completed, and then read a passage and did one together. She is improving. She made flashcards for the sentence types and is going to finish making them for the devices this week. We also went through her prose analysis essay."
