Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked primarily on "Annabel Lee" by Edgar Allen Poe. We talked about the repeating words in the poem, as well as the rhyme patterns. The student also has a poem he had to write for class, so we talked about using his chosen vocabulary words as jumping off points where he could make lists and phrases and start to find the topic of his poem. He did great, hard work tonight."
"This time was a bit different than usual because the student needed to study for an AP European History exam, though I did try to incorporate some reading techniques into the process. For studying, he would read a section and take notes on the most important topics, thus practicing filtering through all of the extraneous information usually present in a lot of texts to reach the most important pieces to take away from the text."
"Today the student and I went through the first half of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe in preparation for his quiz this week. He seemed to grasp the plot well and has read the book before. I intend to finish going through the book with him tomorrow."
