Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I had another good session today. He's almost finished with his rough draft of his essay which is due on Thursday. Today, we completed a body paragraph and a half including evidence, analysis, and connections to outside information. He is improving with his sentences of analysis! I was impressed. He struggles with finding the right transitional words and phrases to use, so I'm going to email him a list that I use with my students in my classes. It's a pleasure to work with this student, and I hope to continue to work with him in the future."
"The student and I worked on outlining and the reformation of his thesis statement. In the course of doing that, we expanded the scope of his paper. We discussed the function of the thesis and conclusions as well. I think it was a good first session"
"Student has an in-class history essay due tomorrow. She was able to come up with some good ideas. She's gotten better at organizing essays when she really knows the subject. I reminded her to make sure she pays attention to the grammar, and reviews her writing before handing it in."
