Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Tonight the student and I reviewed his class work. He is beginning a unit on classical civilizations (Greece and Rome), and we reviewed the work, and he completed the short homework questions. I then presented him with some material I brought to help with his writing skills. We reviewed them, and he began a short, 1 paragraph writing assignment. We reviewed his work together, and are in agreement that his focus to improve his essay writing skills should be on being less concise and more detailed and analytical. We practiced those skills, and he produced a paragraph that fully explained the influence of Ancient Greek direct democracy on modern democracies. I left him with work to do to reinforce his essay writing skills."
"We went over the end of the essay he has been writing for "The Odyssey", including reviewing the body paragraphs and writing a conclusion paragraph. The student also did edits of spelling and grammar throughout the essay. He turned in the paper before I left. He has also been reading "Their Eyes Were Watching God", so we will be talking about that in our next session."
"We reviewed some writing assignments, and also some more advanced grammar and comprehension assignments. The student was outstanding throughout all of this. Our next session will include "how to write on introduction paragraph," as we are taking a section by section look into writing a great paper. I have confidence that she will do well."
