Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered grammar and sentence structure. We then got into reading paragraphs and answering the questions associated with each passage. The student is improving in his understanding of how sentences should flow, but we do still need to work on practicing more and more. We will continue to work on this."
"We began the session discussing what has been happening in school this past week. The student showed me some things he has been working on. He is developing a slide presentation on the Greek goddess Artemis for LA class, has collected notes for a class presentation on weather fronts for Science, and has made an outline for an essay on immigration for Social Studies class. I shared some insights, and he was receptive. As two of these assignments involve oral presentations we did some work on oration skills. He practiced presenting with a writing assignment I assigned last week."
"The student continues to work on his research paper. He has a rough draft due today. I believe that he is on his way to a good final product."
"The student and I covered interview questions for her upcoming interview. I provided her with some advice on making interview responses concrete. She told stories which is a plus for the interview model."
"The student and I focused on research techniques and note-taking skills today. We practiced using the library and different online journals as resources. We also talked about how to decide what information is important in answering research questions."
"The student worked on finishing her proposal rough draft. She is continuing to work on writing topic and supporting sentences, and using organization to write her papers. On Wednesday, we will edit the paper and hopefully finish this course."
