Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on her current assignment for Macbeth - argue for or against including a scene her classmates wrote in the original play. She wanted to argue against, so we talked through her claims and came up with a structure for her discussion. We also talked in depth about the witches, and their role within the play. I would like to see her immerse herself in the material a little more. Finding something interesting in the material will make her care more about it, which will make it much easier to remember and to think critically about. We talked about the importance of layering when studying, rather than cramming."
"The student and I spent the session finishing her history term paper. We continued fixing the edits her teacher had in her rough draft. When all of these were completed, we went through the document for a final edit."
"I guided the student on how to put the finishing touches on his 750 word minimum wage essay. He initially struggled with finding more to write about, but after searching for a few more articles online, he was able to use that information to formulate some counter claims to the main points of his essay. Since English is currently his lowest grade, he has been very focused and determined on getting these large assignments completed."
