Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We began by discussing a worksheet called "Compensation Culture," which presented various lawsuits that can occur in a litigious society. The student had to say whether the lawsuit was legitimate and if not, how the situation could be dealt with alternatively. We then reviewed his recent vocabulary by doing a few matching and reading exercises with them. We finished with a writing exercise in which the student had to compare the points made in an article and a lecture. He put a lot of effort into this essay, and since we ran out of time, his homework is to finish it. I explained to the student that his English 1301 class will probably involve a lot of writing, so we'll focus on this in the future."
"I gave the student a homework for our next session on Thursday. Student asked to work on grammar and use of tenses. We did a lot of ESL and TOEFL tests as well. The student needs to improve expressions."
"Today, we covered past tense verb ending pronunciation, -ing word ending pronunciation, and th word pair pronunciation. We used voice recording and teach back methods and these two techniques were successful. He is doing great and next time we will continue where we left off, with an emphasis on the pronunciation of "th", "oo" an "ll" word pairs."
