Session Summaries by Essay Editing Tutors

Cincinnati, OH Essay Editing tutoring
The student is a bright, eager, and engaged student. I really enjoyed meeting her this evening. We talked in depth about her coursework and concerns. Because she is making good grades and seems in control of her own academic progress, I think that she and I will take a long view towards improving her vocabulary, grammar, and sentence structure. In our first session, we analyzed one of her US AP DBQs. We will focus on developing a broad but descriptive thesis and on tightening her sentence structure. I have suggested that she read a New York Time op-ed each week and analyze its structure. It might also be a fun way for her to pick up some new vocabulary. I am really looking forward to reviewing some more of her writing and to beginning next week with grammar rules and vocabulary roots.

The focus of the tutoring session followed up on the focus of the last session: how to develop a strong thesis. We reviewed a handout with information on how to write a thesis that was relevant, to the point and significant enough to write an essay about. I showed her an example of a specific thesis that had been improved upon. Then, I asked her to complete an activity in which she identified strong/weak theses and revised the weak ones. Lastly, we took a look at her essay from last week and revised the thesis further. For her assignment, I asked her to complete the one that I gave last time (she did not have time to complete it). I also provided her with another article to help her support her argument against video games.

The student and I began the session by going over how to edit a rough draft. I had her first read the essay over again, making sure that her response fit the prompt and stuck with its thesis. Then, I had her read it again, this time adding in content that would make her argument stronger. I then had her read it one last time, looking for grammatical errors or phrasing issues. Then, I read the essay and edited it, and then reviewed my comments with her. Her essay was very well-organized, but she needed to elaborate on some points of analysis and avoid passive voice. I talked about how to avoid passive voice in writing by rearranging ideas and using better, more specific, active verbs. I also suggested writing with the assumption that the reader either is not understanding your point or actively disagrees with your point--it's her job to convince them that her argument is correct, and part of that process is being really detailed/specific. Then, I had her write her second draft of the essay. With the remaining time, we worked on note-taking from a history text that she brought in. I asked her how she would approach the text--she remembered some good skills that we'd discussed previously, like looking for the author's argument and looking at images in the text. I then modeled for her how I would approach the text, by looking at the introduction as she mentioned, and then looking at the conclusion, highlighting the text and taking notes in the margins along the way. We also discussed how she's assessed in school, and I talked with her about how that should influence her note-taking style. We talked over the benefits of that process and how it will help her in class. She's progressing nicely with a lot of the skills that we've worked, on and she understands that these sessions help her build better writing habits.
