Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student worked on her admissions essay for high school. She continued where we left off last week. This time, her writing skills improved dramatically because she was able to provide concrete examples to support her essay. Together, we worked together to provide even more examples to support her thesis statements. We also worked together on writing the conclusion. Since this was our last session, I spent most of the time giving her tips on how to improve her writing. I think she will do great on her exam!"
"Today we covered the technique of organizing ideas through an outline, a skill useful for both organizing thoughts and for taking notes in class. We also covered writing with a purpose and developing theses. Over the next few sessions, I would like to focus on time management skills while writing, budgeting time for prewriting, and mastering the skills necessary for the student's upcoming standardized tests. The student's grammar and vocabulary are exceptional. In addition to finishing the essay we were working on, I feel he would greatly benefit from keeping a journal organized in outline form to help practice putting his thoughts to paper."
"We walked through the applications for the colleges and completed the essay upload portions. We will meet again tomorrow to work on another college application."
