Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed and corrected his last reading comprehension quiz and discussed his new topics, which are Industrialization and Imperialism in the 1800's. Additionally, I had the student complete all of his World History homework."
"The student had a paper on the Haitian Revolution that was due on 2/17. She had her draft and a pdf with the comments from her teacher. Her teacher wanted her to clarify a few sections of her paper, tighten up her thesis statement, and add some more detail. I loaded her paper into the document editor and went through the paper paragraph by paragraph pointing out how to reword certain sentences and what details she could add. I found that the primary problem with the paper was that she just needed to add some more analysis and to link her thesis argument in each of her sections. After the session she felt better about her paper and I told her that most of the revisions were not major. As a college lecturer, I would say that this student is on the right track for success in college and she has a positive attitude towards the revision process. Her writing style is where it needs to be and her research skills are strong."
"I administered a comprehensive written test to the student today. It covered all the material that we have worked together so far on, which was more or less the first half of her text book. She earned a B on her most recent test!"
