Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we worked on the student's writing and critical thinking skills. I had him work on some work books problems and then I had him research some articles and write about them."
"During this session, the student and I continued to work on getting content prepared for his paper. I found that getting content written and going back to revise later seemed to work best for him. He wanted me to look at what he had written already. I did, and we spent a while revising what he had written. He was able to write get about half of his paper down during this session. After completing the sections he had already brainstormed for, we moved on to looking at sources on a database we accessed through his school website. He was familiar with this process already, so I just gave him some ideas on how to find and scan through articles efficiently. Once he felt he understood this, he finished this on his own, I created a to-do list for him to complete in the two days before our next session. He needed to finish writing the body of the paper, find more sources, and input the sources and their information into the paper. I also asked him to email this to me when he was done, so I would have time to review and edit it before our next session."
"Concepts: identifying sources, paraphrasing, writing an introduction, creating a response to short answer questions, identifying financial feasibility benefits."
