Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Final session. The student wrote an essay on John Steinbeck's story "How Mr. Hogan Robbed a Bank."ù His writing is greatly improved, both on its technical merits and narrative development. One area in which he can gain the most is in content, where adding a sentence or two here and there to provide the reader additional context and information will strengthen the points he is making in his essay. He has shown great motivation, and says he is excited about beginning the new school year. I gave him a handout on writing and metaphors and we discussed them. We also had a continuing discussion of how he is developing his calendar and time management practices for the coming school year. It's been a delight working with him!"
"Tonight we reviewed the student's extra practice test. She was then assigned a writing prompt and we worked out an online together. I left her with the outline so that she can continue to write on her own."
"Continued to work on his college essay, focusing on organization and adding interesting evidence to support his statements."
