Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student finished her essay on a play she recently saw and then we edited the essay for ideas and content, verb usage, grammar and style."
"The student had emailed me her essay she completed so I reviewed it prior to arriving at the session and suggested changes with track changes of a few grammatical things. Then I showed her how a conclusion could be developed to tie in all of her ideas she expressed throughout the essay. I believe the essay was of great quality. It was direct and concise. She addressed the topic at hand and ensured that she included examples to tie in with her thoughts and bring the paper together like we discussed in our first session. I went over the suggestions and changes to the essay with her. She stated that that was the only essay she needed to complete due to the fact the other colleges she is applying to do not require an essay. I suggested to her that when she continues to write essays in college she may look into a style book as a reference guide because it helps show you ways to take your formulated ideas and sentences and format them in different stylistic ways which can grab your target audience's attention."
"The student and I finished up his personal essay for the common app. We just need to proofread it and cut it down. He should give the essay to his mom and whoever he wants to proofread it (a school counselor, English teacher, etc.)."
