Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I supervised the student as she created an outline for a global paper on the Byzantine empire. She is sometimes not sure how to research information. I showed her tips on how to find information and cite sources. I left her with additional assignments to complete."
"I finally got in touch with the student's teacher this past week and was able to focus our session far more than before. We rounded out and reviewed the notes previously taken, but focused more on the internal and external factors leading to the fall of the USSR, and the common features of those countries involved in the Arab Spring. I also helped her to edit her notes, since her tendency is to write down everything I say."
"We went over the student's history paper that examines how the legend of Robin Hood reflects the values and ideals of Europeans at different points in history. She put together a rough draft based on the outline we put together last week. I read over the draft, edited it, and provided comments. She did an outstanding job. She still needs to clarify a few points to connect them to her thesis statement, but overall the paper is well written and very well organized. I anticipate that she will get a high grade on it. After going over this paper, we quickly discussed an outline for her English paper that compares themes from All Quiet on the Western Front to contemporary portrayals of war. The student's outline is excellent. Now she needs to write a rough draft. Overall, it was a very productive tutoring session."
