Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today was our initial meeting. I reviewed notes from the student's teacher and asked the student to identify the areas he needs help on. He showed me his most recent essay from his history class. We worked on developing a way to organize his thoughts using a writing planning grid. He needs assistance with being more detailed and ensuring all of his points connect to his thesis and claims. His attitude was positive, and he was receptive to the idea of organizing his thoughts in a different/more detailed way. After the session we discussed that he will finish creating evidence statements that support his claim for the three remaining areas we didn't finish under his first claim."
"Although we were supposed to finish the admission essay, the student's mother discovered he had not completed homework, so we read passages, answered questions relating to the passage and wrote short answer essays to the prompts. He has a great deal of homework to complete over spring break."
"We reviewed his homework assignment, comparing and contrasting three different versions of Act 3 Scene 1 in Romeo and Juliet. We then reviewed what happened in Act 2 of Romeo and Juliet, and finished by beginning a lesson on Shakespeare's language, which is intended to help the student understand the script"
