Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session, the student and I focused mainly on 4 major categories. Complications in booking trips for business, using body language and hand gestures while speaking, common questions in the workplace, and creating a situation with conflict/customer service. The student continued to make strides in all of these lessons. He also is becoming much more quick-witted with his answers to questions in English."
"Per student's request, we met at the food market to go over super market vocab and related conversations. We talked about how to ask questions, how to check out, and also talked about vocab in the kitchen and daily shopping. She was much relaxed and enjoyed it."
"During my session with the student, we worked on editing and composing her work emails. She was challenged with the placement of prepositions and definite articles, but she seemed very positive and eager to improve her written English. For extra practice, I gave her some packets on verb tenses which we will review during our next session. I also gave her additional reading material to help her develop a stronger vocabulary."
"We reviewed the student's results from the LLR4 and LLV5. She retook them for a better grade. She was able to successfully answer the questions, even the ones she had previously missed on the retake. We reviewed simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex sentences."
"We reviewed the student's summer writing assignment for his response to reading The Color Purple by Alice Walker. Overall, he has good, solid ideas, but he needs work in his mechanics. We reviewed and edited the whole piece, and the takeaways are as follows: 1. Read your writing out loud. 2. When writing about books, be sure you are in present tense. 3. Use active voice. (Don't say has written, had looked; say wrote, looked.) 4. Read your writing, and wherever you pause, put a comma."
"We reviewed the student's upcoming syllabus, new location for meeting, reviewed homophones and hyperbole. We reviewed the 1000 Fry sight words, the structure for a persuasive outline, and the steps to write a persuasive essay. We then wrote a rough draft essay using those steps."
