Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We finished up the chapter 5 essay today, planned the chapter 6 assignment out (she has to do it on her own), and began working on the chapter 7 assignment a bit (planning stage). She has a long to-do list for during the day, but I think she can do it. I also let her know that we're going to need to talk about how to include quotes in an essay. Great job today!"
"Today the student and I worked on outlining some ideas for her final exam. We began by talking about Renee Descartes and his ideas. This is both an extremely broad and important topic when it comes to Descartes and the history of philosophy so we just walked through Descartes's understanding. I think our discussion was very fruitful and put the student in a position to write an excellent final exam. I have no doubt she will do so."
"This was a good session - we went through 3 of the 4 questions and edited them for both content and grammar. The student's response to the fundamentalism/contextualism question was particularly good, and well phrased using her own words. She is going to write a response to the Exodus question, and incorporate the edits to the other questions, and then we will meet again briefly tonight to go over them once more and focus again on making sure they are all appropriately paraphrased in her own words. She is definitely in a good position to have the assignment solidly completed by tomorrow."
