Session Summaries by English Tutors

Connecticut, CT English tutoring
I reviewed the student's most recent essay on the Aeneid. I helped her revise her thesis and also edited her paper for grammar and stylistic issues. We finished it and she felt comfortable submitting it today. I did not leave her with practice and did not see any grades.

The student and I drilled vocabulary lessons today. We practiced using context clues for fill in the blank style questions and I linked this to her SAT next year as a way to teach those skills. We practiced ways to think about synonyms and antonyms as well.

Today we spent most of the time finishing up and polishing the presentation that the student is doing for English. We talked about literary elements, proofreading the presentation, and speech skills. She has a tendency to speed through and look at the slides, but through our practice both her speed and eye contact improved greatly.

The student and I spent the entire 90 minutes pre-writing, drafting, and revising parts of a one-paragraph assignment he has about how diction affects mood in a "To Kill A Mockingbird" passage. One thing I stressed to him is that reading a literary passage 2-3 times helps him notice specific word choices, images, and so on that create meaning. He even did some annotation of the passage by underlining key words and phrases that stood out to him. Once he underlined the words, I had him make a list of them on a separate sheet. I then had him group the words based on the meaning they stressed about Dill's curiosity and the Radley house's sense of mystery. From there, he worked on the opening 2-3 sentences of his paragraph. As with many high- and middle-school students, he does better when he slows down, reads and then rereads his assignment, and thinks about his ideas before putting the words on the page.

Started our formal grammar review (parts of speech; possessive, interrogative, and reflexive pronouns; who versus whom; possessive adjectives). We reached the Civil War in Social Studies, discussing sectionalism and states' rights. The student did not have her writing assignment from last week completed. She will finish it and complete two more ACT vocab sheets for our Friday meeting.
