Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Helped student with mid-term exam in adolescence. Corrected grammar and spelling for discussion posts in two classes."
"We worked on one of the student's prompts for her college applications. We also discussed which colleges she plans on applying to and which one was her top choice. We selected a topic out of the topics available as prompts. She told me the two she would like to choose and what she would write about each. I suggested which one I thought was best, based on what she would write about. Then we went through brainstorming ideas and developed a story/setting to place in the introduction of her paper to grab the reader's attention. I explained to her that it was essential to pique the readers' interest at the outset so they don't skim through and ignore the rest of her paper since they have so many essays to read. Then we discussed, paragraph by paragraph, the structure and content of the essay. As we chose what she should talk about in each paragraph, she wrote each one. I helped by giving ideas when she became stuck. I asked her to write the conclusion of the paper, type it up, and email it to me prior to our next session on Monday."
"The student and I completed a review of a play that she saw and focused mainly on persuasive techniques used in writing!"
