Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I completed his essay outline; specifically, we spent our time researching and writing about the economic motivations and impacts of the Olympics. Due to our research, we concluded that we couldn't support the economic motivations for the 1896 Olympics, but we could support that athletes were not compensated as they are today. Also, we found research stating that the Olympics did not become financially profitable until 1984. We even found a quote by the comedian, Jerry Seinfeld, and he will ask his teacher tomorrow if he can use it. He is submitting his outline tomorrow, and we will meet on Wednesday and/or Saturday to work on his first draft. Specifically, we'll work on adding analysis and paraphrasing (this sometimes gives him trouble)."

He then used quotes from the play to back up his opinions and explained how they were relevant. We did this all in the document editor."
