Session Summaries by Writing Tutors

Mission Viejo, CA Writing tutoring
We had an excellent session. The student's reading went really well, and he's nearly done with his Level 3 book. When we began the book, it was a bit over his level, but when he focuses well and gets on a good roll, he is beginning to be able to read it-- not just accurately, but quickly. He is also beginning to ask questions and make connections that involve more advanced aspects of reading than just putting letters and sounds together.

Returning to a topic I introduced a few weeks ago, we reviewed some basic rhetorical devices (ethos, logos, pathos) used in making persuasive arguments, looked at some examples, and then read a couple of editorials and tried to spot them in use. I encouraged the student to look for more examples in TV, print, radio, or online advertising, in political speeches, other editorial pieces, and even in his own debates and arguments with friends. We spent the rest of the session continuing our ongoing grammar review - covering subject/ object/ possessive cases of nouns and pronouns, prepositional phrases, and basic subject/ verb agreement.

Today the student showed me his homework from last session where he identified a dozen literary devices. He got all of them right. Then we worked on a book hook for school. His ideas were good, but he needed more context and style. Finally I had him work on an essay about illegal immigration, which he wrote a draft about. He needs more objective supporting arguments, but otherwise he was fine.

The student and I talked about the book she is reading in English, Chains. We did some background and historical learning, so that she could have a larger basis for understanding this novel about an African American slave in New York. Then, she wrote an essay on why the novel is written in the first person. At the end, we also had gathered together 21 vocabulary words that she is supposed to define and write a sentence with. Also, she is to type out the essay, so that we can refine it.
