Session Summaries by English Tutors

English Tutoring review by Amy in Summit, IL
The student did a free write and then he practiced his cursive handwriting with tracing the letters and copying a sentence. We went over the definition of a thesis statement and an exercise comparing thesis statements to topic sentences. Thesis statements are often difficult for students to comprehend. We'll continue to work on thesis statements in preparation for his exam next week.

English Tutoring review by Rebecca in Summit, IL
In this session, we reviewed Greek and Latin root words and a few common prefixes and suffixes. Then, we reviewed the student's work with the first 16 chapters of "The Count of Monte Cristo" in order to trace the development of student-identified themes, such as innocence, justice, and honesty. Then, we discussed how we can stake a claim using the Philosophical Approach of Literature based on our notes about the text so far. The student decided he could not yet make a claim about Dumas' ultimate meaning in the context of the Philosophical Approach since his escape from the prison has just transpired. We decided that in the next session, we would focus on a few short readings to practice inference-making, as well as prepare a thesis statement for the student's ideas thus far. He will use his notes from that session to justify his claim.

English Tutoring review by Erik in Summit, IL
The student and I started by looking over the stories he wrote, that I corrected at home. We went over words which he had trouble spelling. Then, we played a game in which I tested his spelling of those words. Next, we wrote two paragraphs together. For each of them, I gave the student an object (a squishy ball and a picture of an ocean scene), and timed him, challenging him to write sentences within a certain number of minutes. He was enthusiastic about writing. He made a few spelling errors, but mastered those words by the end of the lesson. He could use practice remembering to use capitals only at the beginning of sentences, as well putting periods at the ends of sentences. Then, he read, to me, about three pages from a novel targeted at an elementary school age level. He read quite fluently and with excitement, pausing for some difficult words (for example, "crouch" and "snort", as well as proper names), which we wrote down so that he can practice them later. For the next lesson, the student will read some more pages in the book, and mark words that he has trouble pronouncing or understanding.
