Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We started off the session by going over the vocab sentences the student had created using last week's words, and then she took the matching quiz. After reviewing this weeks words (#60-80) and creating mnemonics, we focused the rest of the lesson on the essay. We went over my handout on common errors that students make while composing the essay. We then did a few exercises to brainstorm examples she could use from literature/current events/personal experiences in response to sample essay prompts. We will continue working on creating thesis statements, topic sentences, and supporting examples during our next few sessions."
