Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we worked on the student's final essay for her English class. The essay consists of a re-write and an analysis of the changes. We made edits to the original essay, and tomorrow we will write the analysis of the changes."
"I helped the student prepare for his upcoming English final. The student worked on the essay outline for Romeo and Juliet. The student is expected to have this outline with him when he takes his final for English next week. The student and tutor reviewed the hook, thesis statement, and 2 topics for analysis. The student also sought out and investigated quotations that pertain to the student's chosen essay topic. The student chose the cause of Romeo and Juliet's as a result of the pressure put upon Romeo and Juliet by their respective families. The student was able to create an entire outline during the session."
"We opened the session with sentence writing. I asked the student what he did over the weekend and he wrote down simple sentences and we went over any spelling mistakes. Then I made up some verb conjugation exercises for him to fill out on his own, and we went over those, too. Next, we looked at his homework. His exercise on lumping common sounding vowel sounds was perfect: not a thing to correct. We spent quite a bit of time on -ed and -ing endings. Things seem to be progressing quite smoothly. We ended with an exercise on proper nouns, and I gave him a small bit of homework of more of the same."
