Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"For our first session, I asked the student to share his goals for our tutoring sessions. I then asked him to complete a series of scaffolded writing assignments, each one paragraph in length, covering description, sequencing and analysis. While he had no problem articulating descriptive and sequence-focused writings, he had difficulty with analysis. To address this, we went over the basic claim/evidence structure along with topic sentences and concluding sentences. We also went over how to more effectively use spell-check and auto-correct so that those functions help him remember the spellings of words rather than serve as a crutch for his misspellings."
"The student finished writing the story he was working on. The rest of the time, we practiced making words using specific lists of letters. Last, we wrote some poetry together."
"We spent the session focusing on the student's Poli Sci assignment, which involved formulating a thesis and topic sentences. Good focus and preparation!"
