Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We discussed the student's assignment for this week. I edited the grammar and use of argumentation in his work. We went through the edits line by line, and discussed the reasoning behind them. I suggested that he write a new concluding sentence, and said I would look it over after the session when he'd finished it."
"We continued discussing the draft of the student's argumentative essay. He came prepared with the next 2 paragraphs of his draft, so we discussed revisions to them. We discussed additional grammar concepts, such as transition words and proper capitalization. I also told him that when he edits his work, he should read it aloud so he can clearly see when it doesn't sound correct. For our next session, he will bring his conclusion paragraph and also come up with a title for the essay."
"We are working on creating a thesis statement. We focused in on how to write/frame a thesis statement in the medical field. The student has a lot of information in her head; she also has a lot of ideas. For next week, the student is required to write a full outline for a thesis statement which she develops."
