Session Summaries by Essay Editing Tutors

Miami, FL Essay Editing tutoring
Today we reviewed the student's English vocabulary, then discussed the plot and themes in "Julius Caesar". He has an in-class essay on "Julius Caesar" for his English final, so we went over the different prompts and I helped him brainstorm ideas and examples. For extra practice, I emailed him some supplemental videos and websites on "Julius Caesar" and its characters. I also emailed him some tutorials on the software Photoshop for his Computer Science class. I advised him to watch the videos, take notes and work on the Photoshop skills at school. For the remaining time in our session, we reviewed his latest biology chapter on respiration and circulation.

The student is a high school sophomore taking Honors English. She has a final exam in that course tomorrow and wanted help reviewing several issues, including factual questions (e.g., pertaining to the "Magic Lens" technique of grammatical analysis, as well as to the distinction between certain grammatical categories) and relevant skills (e.g., the general ability to comprehend prose passages at the level required to answer the sort of multiple choice questions that appear on AP examinations). We began by discussing the "Magic Lens" technique of grammatical analysis, which analyzes the structure of sentences at four levels--the parts of speech (abstract categories), the parts of the sentence (particular instantiations of these categories in a sentence under analysis), phrases (subparts of sentences which lack subject-predicate structure), and clauses (subparts of sentences which have subject-predicate structure). To start, I facilitated the student's studying by sending her a .pdf document which summarizes the various components of "Magic Lens" analysis. Next, we discussed particular aspects of "Magic Lens" analysis that she finds unclear. She was curious, first, about how to evaluate the number of subjects contained in a sentence in which two independent clauses are linked via a conjunction such as "and." I furnished two examples designed to make this question vivid--the sentence "I went to the store, and I bought some milk" and the sentence "I went to the store and bought some milk;" these sentences have the same meaning, but one uses the indexical pronoun "I" twice and the other uses it only once, so the question of how to count subjects arises. On one interpretation of 'subject,' since both sentences describe the actions of only one person, there is only one subject. On an alternative interpretation of 'subject,' since there are two terms referring to a subject (albeit terms referring to the same subject), there are two "grammatical" subjects. The student indicated that when her teacher asks questions about the subject(s) of a sentence, (s)he appears to have the second interpretation in mind. Second, she was not clear on the distinction between linking verbs and helping verbs. I was able to clarify that helping verbs are always followed by either a linking verb or an action verb, and help to supply further information about that verb. For example, in "The student was studying for the test," the action verb 'studying' follows the verb 'was' and supplies further information about the studying (i.e., that it occurred in the past), and hence 'was' is a helping verb. Next, the student and I discussed issues of reading comprehension. To facilitate this part of our session, as well as the student's private studying this evening, I sent her a document which contains practice AP English Literature and Composition exam questions. Since she felt especially in need of guidance in answering questions that deal with rhetorical devices and questions that deal with the meaning of particular words and phrases, we selected several questions along those lines and worked through them carefully. Ultimately, I found that it helped her considerably to rephrase relevant passages in her own words. Since comprehension requires not only understanding the "surface" meaning of a sentence but also the "deeper" meaning, I suggested that, in addition to rephrasing passages in her own words, she try also to picture the author of the passage speaking those words, and his or her face as she does it. For instance, there is an overall difference in meaning between a friend voluntarily saying "I like you" and a boyfriend saying "I like you" after being asked whether he loves you. Comprehending that difference in meaning requires "reading between the lines" in a way that I find is facilitated by actually picturing the author of a passage. Overall, I found the student to be very smart and motivated, and I am confident that with these additional clarifications and "tools" she will do well on tomorrow's exam.
