Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I discussed his compare and contrast essay on health care. He will use his outline to form the basis of both body paragraphs and an introduction."
"I helped the student prepare for an essay in modern and past culture. We reviewed a compare and contrast exercise on sitcoms from the 70s and modern time."
"Today we finalized question 1 from the transfer application and made sure grammar was correct as well as edited it to meet the word limit."
"We talked about how to organize and format a paragraph. The student has many ideas and expresses his thoughts with a lot of detail. We are working on summary skills and putting sentences in a logical order. He was full of energy and did great with direction. His homework is to write about another movie and follow the same format covered in class. I am really looking forward to seeing what he writes for our next class."
"We talked about paper structure, paraphrasing, citation, and formatting an outline and paper. The student had gotten feedback from the professor to formulate a thesis differently, so we talked about strategies for doing that. Before leaving the session, we developed a plan for next steps and future sessions. We are going to meet again today to review his assignment before he turns it in."
"We talked about the predictions she made about Chapter 5 and then realized it was incorrect once she read it. She shared with me the summary orally. She did read the chapter at home. She wrote about it. I made several corrections on spelling and we talked about words with -tion endings. We also talked about words with multiple meanings and/or words with the same pronunciation but different spellings. We also read some of Chapter 6 together. In addition, I reviewed the way to write the date: January 1, 2016 or 1/1/16. I also showed her the poem about which months have which number of days and sent it home for her to write and practice."
