Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We discussed what author the student should write a paper on for her American Novelists class. She can write two 7 page papers for her final project. We did not land on a final author, but brainstormed on Nathaniel Hawthorne and others."
"The student and I reviewed his paper for his poetry class. Prior to the session, I gave him feedback suggesting that he add an introduction and more clearly answer the prompt's request for a resolution to an aesthetic dilemma. During the session, we went through and fixed grammatical errors, and the student also retooled his theory of the first poem. For homework, he is going to complete an outline for his upcoming essay."
"The first thing the student did during this lesson was to practice doing a full ACT practice writing prompt, and help him to restore his confidence for the ACT test. He did complete the essay in the standard allotted time of 35 minutes, and then we reviewed it together. The student had excellent grammar in his essay, but he needed to take a clear "yes" or "no" answer, as well as provide a few more examples. We will continue to practice ACT writing in future sessions. Then we had some fun, and talked about his other essay again. He finished up the first body paragraph over Pride, and then crafted his transition into his second body paragraph about Greed. He did an excellent job with the Pride paragraph, and I know that he will do just as wonderful in his Greed paragraph! He should have that paragraph complete by the start of our next session."
