Session Summaries by English Tutors

We reworked and finished the medical scholars essay. One important essay remains. I edited the student's rough draft, and we discussed the changes as well as ideas for adding content.

For today's session, I asked the student to please have a final draft of her school of music application ready to go, as well as a draft of one of her college essays. She completed one of the essays. We troubleshot the completed one, and I gave her some questions to think about to complete the other--breaking down the larger questions into their component parts. While I prepared those things, she started on her career goals essay. Because of the slow progress, the number of scholarship essays, and the looming due dates, she agreed to add an extra session at the very beginning of Thanksgiving break. For that meeting, she needs to have finished the final draft of the school of music essay, the full first draft of her career options essay, a full draft of the college diversity essay, and a first draft of the college presidential essay. The first three in this list are not brand new--she has completed each at least partially and we've had conversation about them. The presidential is the only totally new essay assignment.

The student was much more attentive today. We were able to finish a chapter of his school book, and he was able to read or sound out all of the words. Then, we turned to his word search book. I asked him to sound out and spell certain words in the book; each time he spelled a word correctly, he was allowed to find that word in the word search. This exercise worked well because each spelling exercise was punctuated with a fun - but still topical - activity.

We reviewed the student's essay on Sir Lancelot. We discussed grammar issues (inconsistent verb tenses, run-ons, ambiguous pronouns) and we also talked about how to dig deeper in literary analysis and elaborate a claim.

In my 14th session with this student we studied the word suffixes of 'er' and 'est' in their most common uses of comparison and superlative. After a brief explanation of the two suffixes we played a modified game of Concentration. In this version we tried to find 3 card matches: 1) The root word, 2) its 'ed' suffix and 3) the 'est' suffix. Each time we turned a card over we read the word aloud. When a 3 card match was found, we made a sentence using the word on each card. After the game we read from a book titled, "Here Comes Trouble!" He did very well with today's reading and he enjoyed the Concentration game.
