Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I met with the student again yesterday to help with her essays. She got the first batch finished up, and will move on to the next set next week."
"We went over the essay that I had assigned before. He had a new concept for writing it and chose to start over. He wrote a much more solid intro and body."
"Today was our first session, and we went over the material that we will be doing over the next few months. First, we discussed the student's goals. She wants to gain confidence and proficiency in the areas of reading and writing. All of this is very important to her, especially since she lost some confidence when she went from Advanced English to regular English in 7th grade. She maintains good grades in school, but she wants to gain an edge with her academic goals. We are going to take a comprehensive approach in which we will work to improve English grammar and mechanics, reading comprehension, and vocabulary. We will work on learning Greek and Latin roots and will devise strategies to improve reading comprehension. She says sometimes loses concentration in her reading, and she doesn't read much on her own. I provided her a list of books for her to look over and pick one of her own to read. We discussed the difference between literature and formula fiction, and she seems excited to read quality literature."
