Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had even more of draft finished today. I gave feedback and editing tips on the existing partial draft. We then continued working on completing the final draft of the paper."
"Began our session with a quiz on what we covered last time. Created a fill-in-the-blank style format that has worked well for the student in the past. She did an amazing job - 10/10 - which demonstrated that consistent reading and studying between sessions is really paying off. Finished our session by finishing Chapter 7 and then 8 in the Amelia Bedelia book. Took notes on some more advanced vocabulary."
"The student and I worked on his goals for the Socratic seminar. We brainstormed ways to improve in the areas of: creating questions, listening closely to others, involving others in the discussion. He was very tuned in to this and did a good job. We then started editing a writing assignment for his math class. I edited the 1/3 he had completed and had him send me the rest to edit that evening. His writing has greatly improved."
"The student and I continued working on her essay about a Hawthorne short story. Her essay is in much better shape now. She is going to write some new paragraphs and refine her work."
"We went through her short story together and pulled out specific quotes and details that she will use to support her argument in her character analysis essay. We also talked about how to structure her essay and got the first paragraph done. I left her with getting the rest of the body paragraphs done for me to edit/revise next time we meet."
"The student and I continued work on the paper assignment from last time. He seems quick to realize when a sentence has composition errors. We looked at grammar issues as well as composition strategies for next time."
