Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I reviewed several essays that the student wrote this year and last. We discussed tightening her writing and avoiding overly complex sentences. We also discussed the importance of having a very strong thesis statement and a strong conclusion since these are the first and last impressions that a reader takes away. She shared a writing prompt that she had gotten in school. We discussed potential pitfalls with her thesis as stated and talked through the structure of the essay."
"The student did all the work for his research paper that I asked him to do. So we put it all together and wrote his research paper. It took him awhile to organize the research and put it into a paper. He should finish the paper and hand it in this week for review."
"During my session with the student, we continued working on her research paper for English class. We worked on correcting her works cited page and minimizing the quotes she has chosen for her paper. She struggled somewhat in whittling the citations down to the most relevant information for the paper. For extra practice, she is to continue editing her research paper down in length and send the edits back to me for review. I did note the grades she has received on her research paper tasks, and she has been doing very well! I do not have any concerns from this session."
