Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we worked on pg. 6 of a grammar sentence writing worksheet. We discussed and defined prepositions, and the student did the exercises on pgs. 67-70. We then briefly discussed modifiers, and then he did a modifier diagnostic text. Today's focus was on sentence structure, prepositions, and modifiers for clear and concise sentences."
"The student and I went over one of her previous LA essays. We worked on tense consistency, appositive comma use, general comma use. The student has a good grasp of writing, and we will work on grammar and practice writing prompts for our next class."
"For this session, we worked on the creation of introductions and conclusions for persuasive essays. In particular, we focuses on maintaining a professional style with writing. I have noticed that the student likes to directly address the reader, or use a more conversational tone with his writing, and while that type of writing has its place, it's not really "proper" English. I have also noticed the student struggles with making and defending arguments, particularly in comparison to his skills with drafting essays that are purely informative or narrative in nature. Overall, in our time together, we have made great improvements in his writing style and essay composition."
