Session Summaries by English Grammar and Syntax Tutors

Joliet, IL English Grammar and Syntax tutoring
Today was the first session with this student. We spent some time discussing what he has been working on previously in order to find out what we need to work on and accomplish. We worked on developing an essay. My student has a positive attitude.

In this session, I helped the student to lengthen and edit her journal entries for the assignment for her English class. She had them written, but her word count was too low, so we generated ideas and put them together to make them flow in the context of the writing. The concept that was emphasized was writing topic sentences and supporting details for a paragraph. Also, we talked a little about transitions and fluency in writing. Her attitude is great. She is very capable, and I believe she will become more and more confident over time.

We covered topics for the student's upcoming science project - a blog on 'designer babies' or inheritable gene modification. She is tasked with writing blog posts on how this process works, what it is, ethical considerations, whether the government should allow it, etc., in hopes of writing a personal take on what this genetic process is and what her opinion is. We covered ways to present information effectively and good arguments to use for both sides, and she is now more confident in completing this and doing the research for it. Next time, we'll go through all of the posts (which she will do this week) and see what else needs fixing. The project is due the second week back from break, so she has a great head start on it .

We covered clauses, learning the differences among simple, compound and complex sentences. The students first had difficulty picking up the new material, particularly the different types of sentences, but after practice and memorization drills they demonstrated knowledge. They were both active, but still eager and able to learn. As homework they were assigned to each write two simple sentences, two compound sentences, and two complex sentences.

We covered the basics of precalculus including the unit circle, inverse sin, cos, and tan, and the "ambiguous problem." The student has been focusing his efforts in English and precalculus, and he still has a good deal of material on which to catch up for math. I mentioned a few (clever) ways to memorize the unit circle, how to approach homework, quizzes, and tests, and how studying in different environments can assist the brain in memorization. I believe that the session went well and that I was able to improve his understanding of both the basics and of specific problems. I'm looking forward to next week.

Today, we went over a few of the student's English assignments, focusing on the structure and elements of a persuasive essay. We also went over a study guide on A Christmas Carol to help prepare her for her test this week.
