Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student continued working in the workbook practice set 2, task 3. In this task he is writing a short story based on a writing prompt. I continued to encourage him to speed up his writing time and focus his attention on the instructions for each task. I also introduced Steven to the writers' website and asked him to start to familiarize himself with the tools available there. I asked him to begin by studying the "free writing" and "punctuation" sections."
"This session was spent reviewing a test. We went over the questions he got wrong to make sure he understood why they were incorrect. This mostly involved discussing the theme of the book as well as analyzing the key characters. Our lesson was mostly conversation. He has a good understanding of the material but struggles to connect his thoughts logically, so we worked on brainstorming ideas and writing short paragraphs to ties those ideas together into a thesis and supporting details."
"The student and I worked on essay writing today. We first outlined the answer to a prompt and then turned that detailed outline into a clear and cohesive essay. I have assigned her another essay to finish for next week, using the outline that we created during our session."
