Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student continued to work on her admissions essay for high school. She finished the previous essay and began to work on a new essay topic. While brainstorming for this new topic, she seemed to enjoy this topic most because it was about someone important in her life. She will finish the draft of this essay and when we meet for the last time, we will review this draft and the previous essay together in preparation for submission to the admission offices."
"Session was 1 hour. We worked on an essay regarding China's leader and his efforts to combat corruption in recent years. The essay also touched on the benefits of certain free-trade agreements and the opportunity they present for expansion of China's economy outward through resource exploitation."
"Today the student and I prepared for an upcoming 5-paragraph essay on the Odyssey. We helped refine her thesis statement so that it was more precise, and then examined some of the quotes she had chosen to see how they measured up with her thesis statement. We then brainstormed ways to go a little deeper on the quotes. By the end of the session we had prepared a solid strategic outline for the student to refer to in her other studies."
