Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I discussed the results of her last test. The results showed a marked improvement in her grade and her performance in the course. We discussed her upcoming test and final to decide how to proceed to best prepare her for the tests. We still have left to cover: 1) the interwar period, 2) WWII, and, 3) the post-war period. We decided to break down those sections into three sessions to cover the concepts, with one extra session to cover any remaining issues related to the material."
"Mostly the student was simply going through sources, and I occasionally provided some commentary. I did help her understand some background information, such as why eunuchs became so prominent in historical China. When she realized she wasn't able to find enough information on one of her proposed topics, I helped her hunt around until she found some information on a rather separate subject and then helped her reconfigure her topics and outlines to make sure her paper still worked. She reported she got an A- on the last essay we worked on together. We will meet again on Monday for as long as necessary to hammer out her final essay."
"The student and I worked together to clean up some grammar, vocab, and paper organization questions. He has good, clear ideas about what he wants to talk about in the essay, and he has the data to back it up - we worked on using more advanced vocab to make his writing stronger and broke down some of the larger paragraphs in his essay to help with flow. As long as he adds more citations to the paper, I'm sure the rough draft will go really well!"
