Session Summaries by Essay Editing Tutors

Long Beach, CA Essay Editing tutoring
We reviewed for the student's final in language arts by working through some practice questions. She did a great job with slowing down and being careful about what the question is asking. She also worked on process of elimination. We worked together on an essay question. She did a good job of answering it but needs to be careful about including specific details from the reading in her answer. Then we talked about her reading project; she has to create multiple-choice questions for a section of the book she's reading, so we talked about strategies for drafting the questions.

We covered basic vocabulary and prepped for a history exam. While the student was good at memorization, he could use some practice on verbal communication and abstraction. For instance, he had some difficulty putting words into sentences for vocabulary, but was very good at memorizing their definitions - almost verbatim. We will address this in future sessions.

The student is beginning to read "To Kill A Mockingbird" by Harper Lee. We started with chapter one, looking at the significance of Lee's diction, and then made a character chart. We followed this by reading chapter two together. Additionally, we worked on some organization and study skills. We then looked at a calendar of due dates and started planning for future projects. This weekend, the student is going to find three books and two websites to aid him in a research project on the Economic Concerns of the 1930's. We will peruse through his sources on Monday, and begin to draw out important information.

In this first session, I helped to get the student ready for his English final exam next week. We began by organizing his notes and old tests into piles for the different topics-- Julius Caesar, Oedipus Rex, mythology, grammar, and vocabulary. Then, we started to go over mythology with special attention to the questions he had gotten wrong on previous tests. We realized that almost all of the questions he had gotten wrong on the first mythology test were about the same concept--sociological versus humanistic functions of myth; thus, we focused on understanding that concept. We realized that he was able to get the concept more when he pictured explaining it to a young child, and he began to get those questions right more consistently. Next, we went over the Perseus myth and figured out a way to map the most important parts on paper since he is a visual learner. Lastly, we spent time going over the first 3 vocabulary sections and tried to come up with fun, creative ways to remember the hardest words. At the end of the session, we decided that he will read over the other myths and vocabulary before our session next week.

The student's mother sent me a copy of his English final exam study guide. After looking over it, the student and I came up with a study plan. Today, we focused on reviewing the elements of short stories. The student and I first went through and defined all the terms for short stories. At times, I gave or clarified a definition or the student defined the term. Afterwards, I asked the student to identify the Theme, Exposition, Conflict, Characters, Point of View, Climax, and Resolution in three short stories that he had read. Afterwards, I created a quiz so that he could learn and study the words. He reviewed flashcards with the words, did a learning activity, played a matching game which he completed in 33 seconds, and took a test in which he scored a 89%. Finally, the student and I looked over the elements of short stories for Langston Hughes's "Thank You Ma'am." We completed this chart together. His assignment for our next meeting is to complete the elements of short stories for the other 5 stories that will be covered on the test.

The student continued working on her upcoming research paper. She focused on developing strong evidence against a potential counterargument. This has been a challenge with this paper, because a very promising idea ended up having no valid evidence to support it. She made a difficult decision for any researcher and writer, and decided it was better to delete incorrect and unsupported ideas rather than try to make them say something to support her views. This led to her going back into the articles to find more conclusive reasons to argue against the counterargument. While she didn't complete the rough draft today, I'm very proud of her for sticking with the evidence and working hard to develop her ideas based on what is true rather than on what seemed easy.
