Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We practiced close reading Beowulf and discussed important themes the poem covers. We covered the section of the text the teacher should be addressing next in class."
"We developed a study guide for the student's cumulative English exam. He began drafting essay one of the four prompts given to his class. He seemed to have grasped the essay prompt surrounding the question of whether we can assign Macbeth as a tragic hero."
"She went over three of the poems which will be on her midterm next week for English class. We studied and discussed the main themes, as well as details in the poems. This way, she will be able to write something specific in the short-essay question format. She also wrote some practice paragraphs, focusing on the main idea of the poem, specificity in defining the main theme, and bringing in at least one line of the poem. She made a lot of progress in understanding and writing about the poems."
"The student finished the literary essay. We started brainstorming the next essay. Next session we will work on reading comprehension."
"Today the student worked on his grammar worksheet. Then we studied The Count of Monte Cristo and worked on vocabulary."
"We worked primarily on her states exam and most of her writing help pertained to help with her book report. She needed to fill out some extra sheets that she had for class and we also touched on organization and efficiency."
