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 he write a new concluding sentence."
"We reviewed the edits the girls did to their allowance essay, continued working on the admission essay and looked over commonly misused terms. For next time, the girls will complete the editing exercise handout and will prepare a (creative) rough draft of their admissions essay."
"Today we looked at the essay draft. It looks like the student was able to organize ideas well and keep a cohesive theme. Although daunting, the assignments are looking good. The instructor has given the class more guidelines to follow, hopefully making the assignments a little easier to start. The key is to continue writing ideas as they come, reflecting, writing an essay, and then editing. I notice the brainstorming is flowing more freely and so too shall the free writing with practice. I've received the email of the essay for me to review and look forward to discussing it next session."
