Session Summaries by English Grammar and Syntax Tutors

Bellevue, WA English Grammar and Syntax tutoring
During today's session, the student and I spent the entirety of our time practicing his writing skills. Specifically, we worked on (and he completed) one of his required writing assignments for class, in which he selects a topic from a sheet of writing topics and produces a short story based on it. It's my understanding that he has two such assignments to write and turn in every Monday, so his extra practice will consist of writing the second paragraph for this week. He did a good job today and is demonstrating considerable improvement to me.

The student and I worked on finalizing the content of essay #3. This included development of ideas, giving those ideas structure in the form of paragraphs, and writing a robust conclusion needed to meet the goals of the rubric. We were able to use essay #2 comments from his teaching assistant to understand what was getting stronger (content) and where he still had an issue (citation). His writing in essay #2 showed a substantial increased score vs. essay #1. We continue to refine the content and improve the accuracy of APA formatting for in-text citation and references. We are meeting the goals of consistently improving his writing from essay to essay, week to week and topic to topic!

The student gave me the final draft of her essay on "The Story of an Hour," and we reviewed it together. She still had a few issues with tenses, proofreading, and organization, but it was a lot more polished than the previous version. Then, we looked over the sentences she made using the next set of vocabulary words. For the most part, she was able to use the words to form logical sentences that demonstrated the meaning of the words--there were just a few corrections I needed to make. Next, I gave her a vocabulary test with bonus questions about commas, proofreading, and thesis statements. She did very well and demonstrated her understanding of what we have covered so far. Lastly, I gave her a handout on all the different English tenses and their usage, and then we completed a tenses worksheet together. She seems to find the grammar difficult but not impossible; she was able to answer a few of the worksheet questions by herself but struggled with the others. Tenses seem to be something we need to work on, and I will find some more practice regarding it for our next lesson. For homework, I told her to study her next set of vocabulary words. She also needs to find something she enjoys reading, read it, underline and look up unfamiliar words, and write a paragraph about what she read.

This session, the student finished researching and outlining his response, which we reviewed together. This response will focus on women's basketball and the recent expansion in feminist programs offered, the community created. We researched women's basketball programs such as Junior Journalists and Beyond the Baseline which help mentor strong women. He wrote half of the essay and we edited this. For next time, he will continue writing along the lines of the outline we worked on, summarizing the details of each program and emphasizing the time component. The essay already inherently considers increased viewership and the game of basketball itself as reasons for this recent increase in awareness. Next session, he will finish the response, working further on relating programs to these causes and speculating about future programs.

We reviewed an essay that he wrote for one of his classes. We reviewed some errors that he had made and talked about how he could correct them. In addition to reviewing and discussing his essay, we also reviewed some SAT passage reading questions. We discussed some test-taking strategies, like reading the question first, reading the content close to highlighted phrases, and process of elimination. We also discussed how, unless it is asked for, one shouldn't embark on long trains of inferences when answering questions. One should instead stick to what is explicitly stated in the passage. I also assigned him an essay for our next session.

In this session, the student and I continued to discuss his English term paper. We added examples and expanded on content regarding the author's use of imagery and irony in the short story. He began sharing more of his ideas and changing wording based on his preference. We spent a little more time on quotes during this session, but we still added about 1.5 pages of writing. We will also add more outside sources to the imagery and irony sections in upcoming sessions. At the moment, we're trying to get the main ideas and examples down for each section so that we can apply outside sources based on the student's ideas rather than change his ideas to fit sources.
