Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I spent most of this session talking about a reading that I asked him to look over. It is Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous "Letter From the Birmingham Jail." Basically, I wanted to show him that there were three or four separate claims that King was making, and I wanted him to see the rhetorical devices King used to get his ideas across. In addition, I wanted him to find one memorable sentence that he can use as a source in a response to just about any argumentative prompt. We also talked about the Synthesis essay. We read his most recent one, and we critiqued it."
"During this meeting, the student and I continued to review the English AP exam, but focused primarily on the essays."
"Student and I discussed the essay section of the AP test and went over some techniques for writing these types of essays."
