Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student expressed some concern about his assignments, but after we discussed it in detail and created a work plan, the student had a more positive outlook. We will be specifically working on doing primary research in databases specifically on nursing topics. We have agreed to regroup later this evening to discuss the research we found."
"The student and I went over some math problems and test corrections for her math test that she had. We then reviewed her journalism article and ensured that all of her grammar mistakes were taken care of and that her wording was very clear and concise."
"The student got back her first paper on an historic event. We went over areas of critique and discussed how to get specific and expand her ideas. We also planned an outline and began research points to add so she can turn in a second draft next week."
"The student wanted to update his thesis after more research. He wrote a new one and I helped him edit it. He is well ahead of his classmates, which is great, because it will cut down on his stress. His annotated bibliography is complete and ready to turn in Friday. We actually spent most of the session working on strategies for writing his rough draft and then writing a few sections of it. His homework until next Monday is to spend 30 minutes or so every day continuing to write on his rough draft, so that the first few pages are ready for our session on Monday."
"The student has improved greatly and should be ready to take the exam after the next session. We need to work on writing clearly and sentence-level restructuring, but he has the main conceptual approach under his belt. For the upcoming session he will prepare the essay for the example exam."
"The student and I looked over his writing assignment from this past week and spent some time adding a few more edits. He is improving in his ability to proofread his own work. We worked more on some grammar exercises, and I gave him a new writing assignment for this coming week."
