Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent one last session on the student's final paper, mostly making grammatical corrections and improving a couple of transitions. His logic has gotten very sound."
"The student edited one paper and worked out a thesis for the second one. He is going to call me when he is ready to keep working and editing."
"The student continued with her editing of a series of poems. She worked on the grammatically correct phrasing and word usage."
"Today, we covered grammar first (subject/verb agreement, article usage, conjugating verbs, adverbs versus adjectives) with materials I had prepared before coming. Then, we worked on developing research skills by preparing for the student's group assignment. The student located articles to use for her presentation, and we worked on paraphrasing and citing those quotes correctly. Additionally, we covered how to cite information on a references page using APA formatting. The student will email, if necessary, concerning the presentation. I also annotated a grammar book she had brought and tagged 8 lessons for her to work on during the next several days. Her grade has improved greatly over the past 2 weeks."
"Today, we focused almost exclusively on writing, particularly for Animal Farm. That essay is now complete, and tomorrow, I would like to complete the student's last remaining essay along with the rest of his homework. This will free him up to focus completely on his exams."
"Today, we focused on continuing the student's college essays. We were able to rearrange one of the essays to make the word count. It still needs tweaks but is close to being finished now."
