Session Summaries by Writing Tutors

Whittier, CA Writing tutoring
Today we reviewed the student's essay on Steve Jobs. The form and the sentences were good. He will receive a new essay assignment on Wednesday. We then worked on his vocabulary words. We reviewed his old group of words first and then went over a new group of words. I will write a vocabulary exercise for him and a test for Monday. Then, we discussed the first two paragraphs of Nabokov's "Symbols and Signs"--a short story that is all about foreshadowing but in a different culture--the Russian culture. We will challenge our observations of the numbers and symbols in the story. We will continue slowly with the story. The point is to think in different dimensions about narrative and interpretation.

The student and I spent almost all of the session on his essay again. He came prepared with his rough draft of the essay, and we went through it with the proverbial fine-toothed comb, finding all the ways that he could improve it. After going through it, I had him rewrite the essay from the start using the notes that we had put together. We went over the final product, and I think he had written a really solid essay. We finished our time by going over what he was doing in each of his classes in school.

The student and I did some writing practice with adding vivid verbs and specific pronouns to his writing. The exercises we did came from his grammar book. I advised him to begin reading the next chapter, which is on connotation and denotation.

Today the student and I reviewed two essays he was previously assigned. We reviewed the points that are to be written in the introduction and conclusion (thesis statement, cause, and summarizing the effects). We went over the importance of writing in the second or third person when writing an expository essay. We reviewed the body (second, third, and fourth paragraphs) of the essays. He still needs to work on summarizing his paragraphs. Overall, I feel that he has gained a better understanding of the structure of essay writing, and gained tools to incorporate into his writing.

We did four different worksheets where the student had to use reading comprehension, matching, and writing skills to identify the correct words to fill in the blanks. He also wrote 13 sentences, which is the most he has written in a single session. We used the colored paper sentence starters at the beginning, but he transitioned to writing longer sentences on his own. I help him with grammar and spelling issues. I can see him making more and more progress each time.

We are still working with Tom Sawyer. In this session, we read chapter two and worked on some reading comprehension questions. We need to make sure that when we "read" we're not having our eyes simply glaze over the page. We spent a lot of time going back into the text and finding the support for our answers, which is good! He remembered plenty from our last session as well, which is very encouraging.
