More About Our Austin English & LanguAge arts Tutoring
If the student needs the tutor to bring supplementary study materials, please let Jaclyn know in advance! We are happy to provide these items, but we need to know ahead of time so the tutor can plan accordingly.
To begin the session, the tutor will ask the student what he or she has been learning in class (ie. Literary Devices, Persuasive Essays, Research Project, Novel, etc.) and how comfortable he or she feels with that concept or book. The tutor will let the student tell them about what he or she has been working on in English class and what assignment they will be focusing on in the session.
If the student requires assistance with a persuasive or argumentative essay, the tutor will first lay out an effective format or structure for the paper. Then, the tutor and student can work on developing an outline for the essay.
For example, the essay should follow a predictable, academic format which consists of an introductory paragraph, 2-3 body paragraphs, and a conclusion paragraph. The tutor will closely and carefully walk through each of these sections with the student and ensure the student fully grasps how to craft an interesting, effective, and well-written paper.
The goal of this process is to create independence and confidence within the student so that he or she can write academic pieces with ease. It is important for students to remember that first drafts are NOT final drafts. A student should ALWAYS leave time to revise their work and check the piece for grammatical and spelling errors.
