Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This was a great session. The student and I discussed his next assignment on Saving Private Ryan, and I helped him formulate his topic sentence. We went on to discuss the mid-term assignment, which covers the 6 themes of the course and all of the text studied so far. This was a really positive, breakthrough conversation. Talking about all the texts and themes of the course allowed us to get into a broader, deeper conversation, and allowed him to explore some of the ideas in more detail, having already dealt with the material. He expressed happiness with how the meeting had gone. We scheduled a meeting for Thursday at 11:30."
"The student and I reviewed 11 pages of grammar dealing with nouns from a special grammar book, which included multiple worksheets and quizzes. With 30 minutes remaining, I critiqued a lengthy paragraph he wrote, which included all 4 types of sentences (declarative, interrogative, exclamatory and imperative)."
"In this session with the student, he showed me whatever he had completed of his paper. It has started to take shape quite well. I went through his work, made the necessary changes, advised him how to handle similar projects, and tackle the rest of the paper. We bounced ideas off each other and I also gave him ideas as to how the entire packet of the paper will be. Presentation for papers such as these is very important. So far, we are heading in the right direction."
