Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I finished his long essay and short responses for the university application. We focused on rephrasing and cutting down words, as well as transitions to make the essay flow better. He and I also brainstormed for his next few application essays."
"The student refined the essay, changing order and structure to answer the prompt more immediately. He also wrote a beginning anecdote, focusing more on the theme of exploration. I really enjoy this new anecdote. Finally, we discussed how the essay will end, choosing to finish on the same note as the essay starts."
"The student and I met and reviewed his major English assignment for his Argumentative Writing class, and his papers he has already started and finished, way ahead of time, which is good. He might be adding food issues to his Issue Proposal. We also reviewed his Public Speaking class and his first assignment. I gave him some ideas to lengthen his speech, per the assignment, and some more questions to ask that will give him more material. He has already put his notes together in his first speaking assignment, which will be given on Monday. The student's progress has been wonderful, and his writing skills are very good. We can continue improving his already excellent skills, and keep him focused and organized in both English and Public Speaking. His answers to his Finance class questions were excellent and well thought. I gave him a few ideas, but his assignment was well done."
