Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We read and discussed an article from the Wall St. Journal and tried several new vocabulary building tools, arriving at the one we felt was the best."
"I supervised the student in annotating a large New Yorker article profiling Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The student practiced annotating while reading aloud, and also practiced listening and taking notes while I read aloud. We were working with taking in the material through multiple means. He had thoughtful questions about the text and was very engaged in conversation regarding larger context of global political economics within which Garcia Marquez's work is situated."
"The student and I worked on critical reading and note-taking skills as we completed his health and earth sciences homework. We focused especially on how to outline a chapter of reading to then use as a study tool for later on."
"The student worked on worksheets for test tomorrow about capitals and titles. She had very few concerns in that area, so we worked on 8th grade reading and practice questions."
"The student and I worked on the final edit for his paper. We finished the Appendix and the Works Consulted page. The paper is excellent, in my opinion, and ready to be turned in Friday. It was a pleasure working with such a smart, articulate young man."
"The student and I worked on a story he had to write about the circulatory system. His math grade has gone up from a C to a B!"
