Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I supervised the student with completing a screenplay for BIS 470, and his essay on elements of poverty and society's response."
"I read the student's three college essays carefully and thought about feedback for two hours. Then we discussed the edits, suggestions, and additions for an hour online."
"I had my first lesson with the student today. He is in the process of trying to submit application essays for various schools, probably about 12 to 15 in total. Deadlines vary. I suggested he use a website to share his existing essay draft with me. His version was only 250 words and was fairly general. I asked him many questions about his background and motivations for wanting to study business economics. Since it's important for the app essay writing to stand out, I wanted him to infuse more of his personal background and its flavor into the essay. He has a unique background. We made major progress on the app essay and arranged to meet the following day (Friday) again to review it."
"The student and I looked at the first draft of her essay on the actuality of the American Dream. We examined the essay on both organizational and syntactical levels, rearranging her ideas to best suit the presentation, and reworking sentences to make them more fluid."
"The student and I met and we worked on main ideas and supporting details on a writing related to the electoral college. He did a graphic organizer and then did a writing, emphasizing structuring a paragraph with main idea and supporting details."
"The student and I met at the library to edit her English paper. It took us a few hours to complete editing her essay and to edit her journals. Overall, I found that she needs the most work in sentence structure and grammar, but her analysis is sound and accurate."
