Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I finished the bulk of the writing on her history assignment today. It was a short writing assignment (1-2 pages) but required a different type of writing than she is accustomed to doing. As she finished outlining and researching the ideas, she became more excited about the newspaper article. This type of assignment, which is more creative, tends to keep her attention much better. I saw a marked improvement with her sentence structure from her last writing assignment. She is getting much better at writing clean sentences on a first go-around. She still has a few comma issues, but she is able to spot the issue and correct it if I simply tell her sentence needs or doesn't need a comma. She believes she'll have a few weeks without papers due in English, so we're going to work on some comma worksheets so that she continues to improve."
"We discussed the student's midterm paper. I received feedback from the student that her teacher reviewed the work previously done and complimented it."
