Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on his two writing assignments. I supplied many reading/research resources for his research paper. He received a lot of work from me today because Wednesday's research paper deadline is approaching. The student has great energy and is very respectful."
"Today we covered basic research methods and different types of evidence. We discovered the student's school's library database and discussed some of the various scholarly databases and the best practices for navigating through them and eventually using them. He continues to impress with his intellect, creativity, and ability assimilate new concepts quickly."
"The student started the session by showing me her critical book review. We discussed some ways she can improve the structure and her argument. Her thesis should include more of her reasoning or argument, the information about the book should be more specific, and when working with a book she should use direct quotations to support her argument. We also discussed literary terms she can use when writing about literature. We did more work on correct pronoun usage, reviewing an exercise she'd completed and talking about how different roles pronouns can play in a sentence (subject, direct object, indirect object, object of preposition, or appositive). I provided her with some extra practice sentences to review during our session and gave her some sentences to label and diagram. For our next session, she will write another draft of her book review and label and diagram the sentences."
