Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had some computer problems, so we started half an hour later than scheduled, but after that, we did some great work. She got a 100% on her last English quiz, and we worked today on some geography, particularly the G8. She has some homework to do for next time so that we can work on a geography essay together."
"Today the student and I spent our time working through his English homework on Antigone, the Greek tragedy play. It was hard for the student to know the plot line but since we started in the middle of the story that made sense. We then worked on his World History homework on British Imperialism in India. He did well going over the IDs by himself."
"Tonight, we went over a practice quote ID quiz on Macbeth, given to the student by her teacher, in which she had to identify the speaker of the quote, to whom the quote is said in the play, and the circumstances surrounding the quote. This discussion led to a deeper discussion of the themes and questions that pervade Shakespeare's works and how those questions reflect Shakespeare's underlying messages. In addition, regarding her Macbeth Explication Paper, we discussed the proper format of a thesis statement and how to formulate a paper so as to have everything in the paper reflect back to the thesis as the "guiding light" of the paper. It was a productive evening."
