Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student covered his second poetry paper. He focused on fixing the grammar/mechanics of the paper. I am planning to send him some resources on appropriate use of articles in follow up. We will also meet tomorrow."
"The student sent me a new draft of her essay, which I reviewed before we met. We discussed a few stylistic and typo issues relating to the introduction and main paragraphs of the essay. We then discussed possible improvements to paragraphs specific to particular schools, and I gave her general advice about the purpose and structure of a conclusion."
"During today's session, the student and I focused predominantly on spelling out words and practicing the writing of specific letters. The latter activity involved the use of one of his workbooks that teaches the writer to trace letters before practicing free-hand. Although he had a little difficulty staying focused in the second half of the hour, by the end of the session I was able to refocus him and make productive use of our time. Despite this minor issue, he mostly approached the exercises enthusiastically and cooperatively, and seemed to take note of the writing strategies we reviewed. He has his workbooks should he desire continued practice prior to our next session. In order to ensure his progress with writing letters, I will continue to return to the more difficult ones for him in future sessions. From the next session on, I will be spending approximately half the hour practicing reading with him, and the other half covering writing."
