Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student doesn't have a ton of work but he does have a project for the end of the year - the class is working on group projects of the more recent decades. He was assigned the 1970's, so we went through a historical timeline and I explained post-Vietnam American politics and the economy. According to him, the class mostly ended at the end of Vietnam, so I talked a little about the revolutions in the Middle East and the takeover of the embassy in Tehran."
"The student has a voluminous summer reading and response assignment for this class. Today, we covered the Spanish conquest of the Americas and passages on Bartolome de Las Casas, the priest who spoke out against the treatment of the Native Americans. The student is very bright and once she does the reading, we can discuss her essays and her interpretation of the material. We completed several of the short essay questions, and she will complete some more before we meet again at the end of the week."
"The student and I spent this session working on a short answer assignment for AP US History. He worked on creating a thesis statement for each question, and answering them in a concise and correct way."
