Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"First meeting with the student today. Spoke with mom for 15 minutes at beginning and end of session, regarding goals and progression. Primary goal is completing 12th grade online English. My focus is in the writing sections, which are submitted in 4 'Portfolios' worth 50% of the overall grade. Today we worked 3 portions of on Portfolio #1: Verbal Snapshot (Lesson 1), Personal Resume (Lesson 2), and Opinnionare (Lesson 3). The resume was essentially complete, containing all the required components but needing more elaboration. I corrected some minor grammar and formatting issues, and we moved on, The opinionare was where I began to see some of his talent. As he became aware of the flaws in his own arguments, he began adding depth and flesh to his arguments. His ability to put together concepts and words was notably improved over our work in Verbal Snapshot. I left him to complete the remaining 7 opinionare questions before our meeting tomorrow, asking him to challenge his own thinking or to ask friends. I am confident that his essays are improved for having been reviewed, and that we will be able to work more efficiently now that we have some sense of how the other works."
"We worked on getting the student ready for his English final exam. There is a lot to cover, and I will be going back tomorrow."
"This session focused on two specific areas. The student and I began this session with the construction and ended with development."
