Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I mainly just worked on finalizing his paper and turning in his final draft. We were able to complete the final draft of his research paper, and he turned it in. We went over everything. We fixed his conclusion and made sure his works cited was complete. We were able to discuss one of his other assignments a little bit - it was just a short discussion question he had to answer about the four readings we analyzed at our last session."
"This morning the student found, but had not yet reviewed, two sources for her English research paper. She is going to search for more sources and have a draft for our next session, so I can help her prepare the final paper for its due date."
"We covered how to write short proposal for a future paper. We mainly discussed going through the content of his writing. He received an A on his last assignment!"
"The student and I reviewed some grammar exercises and his homework that is due Tuesday. We also brainstormed a nonfiction essay he will write for next week. The nonfiction essay is an exercise for him to take his time writing and review basics like capitalization rules, punctuation rules, and spelling."
"We started summarizing stories, per parent request. We also went over the vocabulary words the student misspelled on the test from Monday. Then, we did a preliminary test on the next set of vocabulary words."
"The student and I decided to work on his current event. After looking at and passing on a couple potential articles, he settled on a man from Bangladesh who has grown wart-like lesions on his hands and feet that resemble tree bark. He was interested in this article and was able to complete the summary quickly. I emailed his teacher during our session to see if he could send the pertinent information for the student to do his homework. I received a response after our session and I forwarded the information to the student's mother so she could share it so he could complete his work before class, per his request."
