Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We read chapter 5 of Animal Farm and discussed the symbolism of the events in preparation for an in class-discussion the next day."
"I looked at past writing assignments with her and we discussed how she misses details and character development with her writing and how to fix it."
"We had class on Friday for two hours. We did basically two things: grammar and essay writing. The first hour was dedicated to grammar. The student's mother wanted me to work hard with the student on grammar. I worked with her on nouns. We worked on the difference between common vs. proper nouns. We also looked at collective and compound nouns. We also talked, to a lesser degree, about adjectives and adverbs. The second hour was dedicated to writing a very short persuasive essay. I emphasized the importance of the thesis statement and the sub-thesis statements. I gave the student 15 minutes to write an essay based on Maya Angelou's writing on the importance of traveling. The last minutes of the class were dedicated to proofreading the essay."
