Session Summaries by Writing Tutors

Norfolk, VA Writing tutoring
We worked on the student's essay for his World Cultures class. He had made an outline already. We worked on incorporating the information his teacher had provided and some Internet research into the essay. He completed a draft. I advised that he do some more editing before turning it in, but we left it in pretty good shape.

For this session, we switched from ISEE-related subject matter to strictly that of writing. The student is applying to a school and is required to write an essay, in addition to the other essay-type questions, with his application. He and I brainstormed and utilized information from the school's website to develop a strategy and outline for his essay. We will continue to refine and evolve this essay next session.

The student and I worked through the first two paragraphs of his essay that is due next week. He had a very good start to the paragraphs. We worked on using stronger language, fixing grammatical issues, and making the sentences flow more smoothly. We also discussed using the technique of reading a sentence out loud to hear how it sounds and identify problem areas.

The student and I worked on a volunteer application for the Boys and Girls Club. He was asked to write short answers to a few questions describing his experience and motivation behind applying for a volunteer position. I was impressed with his ability to create straightforward topic sentences with little prompting. As our last session is coming up, I pushed him to evaluate his own writing, as his tendency is to ask me if something is "good." My hope is that he'll be able to ask himself the same questions about his work that I have been asking during our sessions.

The student and I focused on descriptive detail, doing exercises to focus on descriptions of objects and consider all five senses when describing an object. We compared mundane and evocative descriptions and I gave him the assignment of finishing the draft of his horror story, starting a journal to record the sensory details he encounters daily, and to record interesting descriptors he encounters in his reading.

The student and I had a fantastic session. We put the finishing touches on the final two paragraphs of the first draft of his college application essay. I told him that the conclusion of the statement would be the most difficult portion to write, as it required him to synthesize the entire body of work thus far, while also including his reflections regarding the experience that he chose to write about. As such, I also told him that I would be challenging him to write a truly great conclusion, as a weak conclusion can significantly dampen the efficacy of one's personal statement. He responded by thinking and writing enthusiastically throughout our session and showing a desire to truly craft two fantastic paragraphs. We concluded the session by beginning to discuss our goals for the revision process.
