Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent the first part of the session working on some verbal practicing for 15 minutes. We then proceeded onto writing. I noticed some improvement, but then decided to shift gears toward subject verb agreement. The rule is if you subject is plural then your verb is singular, and vice versa."
"This 90 minute session was supplemented by 30 minutes of off-site review for performance review materials. We worked on the student's performance review, having extensive discussion of structure, content, and grammar."
"The student turned it his final copy of his essay of Dr. Seuss, which was very good! There were only a few logic/clarity errors. Mostly his errors were related to mechanics/punctuation, so beginning next session we will dedicate a portion of the time to understanding when and where to use certain punctuation, as well as capitalization. He also worked on a worksheet that helped him to understand the differences between passive and active voice, and he got every question correct. We then moved onto his next essay prompt, which was another compare/contrast, but this time between two depictions of Napoleon. He then worked on his creative map, and before the session ended he had completed his outline. He worked very hard and did an excellent job!"
"This week, we worked on a dramaturgy paper the student had to write for English class, creating a fully developed proposal for a production of Titus Andronicus. He had already done a lot of his brainstorming and some of the writing, so I helped him with several of the more complicated sections, doing some proofreading while also suggesting extra topics to think about or refinements to make."
"The student finalized her Greek Mythology project, compiling images, editing descriptions, and tweaking citations. She feels confident in her project and seems happy with the final outcome. We finished well ahead of schedule! For next week we will be working on a write-up and analysis of the movie Troy."
"Session was great. The student has covered a lot of ground with his main essay. He has about 1/4 of the essay left to cover, and so will finish up and then proceed to editing."
