Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I spoke about each of the three personal essays she has been working on. The essay on her interest in neuroscience is off to a great start, with a strong introduction, and we came up with an outline of the remainder of the essay. We also restructured the essay on languages and made a general outline for the essay on her tennis injury. For now she feels that the neuroscience essay is strongest and intends to focus on that for submission to her early-admission schools."
"The student used the writing strategies I suggested in our last session. We reviewed what she had written. We also discussed using Polynesian dance as a vehicle and organizing framework for the essay. To get started with these ideas, she wrote a paragraph about her grandmother dancing and one on the meaning of "aloha"."
"Last night, the student wrapped up her second school admission essay and began answering some of the short questions required by her first choice school. We discussed revisions to her first remaining admission essay and are hoping to put some final touches on it in the next session. We got a lot done in that amount of time, and I asked her to select a topic for the next school essay she must write. In the next session, I hope to essentially finish all the essays."
