Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We selected a topic for the student's next essay and crafted an outline for him to complete as he works on the assignment. The assignment is to summarize and analyze a poem of his choice. While the assignment is to be completed during school hours, he is permitted to develop an outline prior to class. He was motivated to complete the essay and the topic was of particular interest to him."
"The student finished her first research paper today. She has shown very good instincts in writing. She has creative thought which mixed well with her good research. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading her work. For next week, we will choose not a scientific analysis, but a literary or historical one."
"The student has completed her English research paper. Today we debriefed the paper, focusing on the introduction and conclusion. I gave her some advice on how to write an introduction and tried to give her an example of how she could make the introduction work better for her paper. We also discussed her conclusion, which needs a little more specificity. She did very well on this paper overall. For next time we meet, she is going to attempt to rewrite the introduction and conclusion of this paper, keeping my advice in mind."
