Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on one of the student's major projects. He has done some excellent research on his topic (the Polio Vaccine). We worked on putting together his proposal, particularly on the 'research section' of the required form. In writing the paragraph, we discussed how to avoid using linking verbs, the difference between passive and active voice, and ways to connect ideas without being repetitive."
"We worked on prompts for her test. She needs to be ready to write a claim. I will bring samples of claims for her next time and an article to pull from. She did great with the question she was given."
"I worked with three students. With the first student I attempted a couple of writing exercises, then asked her to write on 2 prompts from a webpage I found for critiquing next Monday. I had the other two students write some sentences using adjectives, verbs and nouns in various tenses."
