Session Summaries by Essay Editing Tutors

Austin, TX Essay Editing tutoring
We focused on SAT prep. I gave the student a couple of minutes to poke around the SAT prep book and flip through one of the practice tests to re-familiarize herself with the set-up (she took the PSAT this past academic year). I asked her how she'd prefer to kick things off: by taking a timed practice test (standard procedure for establishing a starting point, a baseline -- determining strengths and weaknesses) or going through some test-taking strategies. She opted for the former, but agreed reading through the chapters which speak to test grading and how to approach select problems is something she needs to take time with, on her own time. We began with the essay section of the test since the remainder of the test is multiple choice, which includes an answer key. With this, she set a timer and tackled her first essay prompt. The prompt asked if it is important to question the ideas and decisions of authority figures. She was able to complete the essay in approximately 15 minutes. Upon completion, I did a recap of the expectations set forth by the SAT as far as key ingredients to include in one's essay, what the graders are looking for/assessing, etc. We talked a fair amount about the importance of essay set-up -- that without directly addressing the prompt at hand, without setting forth a clear thesis ("This is ... because of x, y, and z"), it is much less likely one's essay is going to include all aspects of the prompt and include well-developed examples, neatly tied to the thesis and one another. She agreed that it would be worthwhile to rewrite or retry the essay in question (again, within the 25-minute time limit) next week following the formatting/steps discussed.

The student and I discussed the short story I had assigned her, The Yellow Wallpaper, and talked at length about how to connect actual words and quotes from the story in order to understand where our thematic and philosophical impressions of the test come from. To practice this, we did several things, but one of the main things we did was practice making prompts. I told her that the process of making prompts is sort of like thinking ahead of the text and the teacher, and that if you can think up your own prompts, you can learn how to be thinking critically throughout all of your readings. We then moved on and spent significant time editing a short essay she wrote about the story. I analyzed her diction and organization, which were both quite good. Overall I think it was an effective lesson.
