Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on his first two paragraphs of his thesis essay. He came to the session with a well thought out introduction paragraph, which we made stronger by combining sentences and updating word choice to make it more academic. We finished working on the introduction and first body paragraph, and I left him with some pointers as he continues to write his draft."
"We worked on the outline for his paper, specifically on thesis statements and topic sentences. He has a good grasp on the literature involved, we just need to continue to organize his ideas. The student is a sharp student and I look forward to reading his finished essay!"
"The student and I reviewed essay writing. Specifically, we practiced crafting theses. He is a great student and a pleasure to work with. He's very creative, and we need to channel his creativity into academic writing, making sure it's exciting and dynamic for him. When prompted, he's getting better at specifying and challenging his thinking. He is definitely making progress!"
"The student and I covered the topic for a paper she's writing and how to effectively write an outline for said paper. We talked about how to structure it out and I answered the questions that she had about making sure her ideas were clear to the reader."
"We covered the research paper outline and format with a focus on the literature review. The student needed help with her methodology section. As we continued to discuss the student's paper and where she was in the research process, we were able identify some primary steps that she had overlooked. I left her with a visual outline, so as to understand the research's start and end goals, and strategies to complete her literature review. We will meet on Monday to review her work and pursue next steps."
"The student did really well in this session. We continued to read Marco Polo and we are so close to finishing the biography. She wrote her Spanish summary afterwards. She is getting much stronger at reading and writing in Spanish."
