Session Summaries by Writing Tutors

Newport News, VA Writing tutoring
Today we started with reviewing 20 new vocabulary words. The student will identify the correct word in filling in a sentence, and this will be assessed next session. Following this, I gave her an editorial from a newspaper and reviewed it with her. The subject was about women being trained for combat and she read a number of opinions. She will write a 3-4 paragraph essay on her opinion for next week. Then, I reviewed and critiqued her 4 paragraph essay from last week, making grammatical and some diction changes.

At the student's request, we spent our session today identifying mechanical and usage errors from a series of sample paragraphs. It was a good exercise, featuring both obscure and fairly obvious problems designed to expand proofreading and writing abilities. This kind of knowledge is sure to serve her well as she works on content for the web and marketing materials she'll need for her business. We'll continue working on these problems and evaluating other writing as we continue our sessions.

We went through general editing tips for her paper, discussed her conclusion, and went through her film sections in more detail. She found a suitable source to use for the Caravaggio painting she is using in her paper and we discussed some of the prior editing comments.

The student and I worked on setting up for an essay on liberal arts education. We determined his argument and thesis statement, and set up his organization for the rest of his essay. We also set up resources for him to use for transition words and phrases and APA-style formatting. He was receptive and active during the work, and had great questions. Lastly we worked on organizing an oral presentation he had next week, and set him up to make and practice his presentation next week.

We went over the edited essay I sent to the student. We talked about the changes and read the revision appreciating the differences. She told me that they are reading Flowers for Algernon in school. She wrote a short essay explaining why the first person point of view in the story is so important for what the story conveys. Once she was done with her paragraph, I explained to her how to write a longer, more in depth essay by expanding on each step. For two weeks from now when we meet, she has two items of homework: 1) Copy the new list of vocabulary, writing each word spelled properly. 2) Write a new essay, this time on the novel she read, Dreamsleeves. She should send me a copy by email a couple days before next session.

The student and I went over the next essay she wrote for me of the prompts I gave her. I focused on seeing if her sentences add onto one another or if they are presenting a new topic/ fact. If they are adding onto one another, they could potentially be put as a single or two sentences to summarize and make the essay more concise. I also taught her how to see if the sentence elaborates, or if she is just making a statement and assuming the reader will just accept the statement instead of her providing further information to justify it. Lastly, I briefly taught her a second step when referring to quotes, to try to incorporate commentary on the quote within the sentence it is presented in, and if unable, to refer to the individual who is credited for that quote by last name, as opposed to referring to the quote itself in ways such as..."this says..". Great session! I think I helped her a great deal!
