Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent most of today's session working on the students poetry analysis essay. His energy has remained high and he seems to really be getting into his poetry analysis. He has also spent a lot of time outside of our session working on this piece."
"Today we continued our tutorial on scholarly research. We went over different types of sources and discussed how and when to use them in a paper. We also tackled methods of source analysis, how to illustrate relationships and correlations with different sources, and how to draw out pros and cons of an argument in order to strengthen the main claims of a paper. He has made great strides with research. Now it's time to start extrapolating (from a vast body of sources) and focusing on what's going to go into the paper, so he can get out a working draft as soon as possible."
"Tonight I worked with the student to brainstorm ideas and outline his essay on the Aeneid. We focused primarily on the structure of the essay: how to identify and outline and subsequently insert supporting arguments from the text."
