My goal for each student is to tailor instruction to fit his or her individual needs. The quickest way for me to determine those needs is for students to bring writing samples or standardized test results to our first meeting.
TEN USEFUL ITEMS, good for all sessions:
1) a 1-inch binder
2) paper to write on
3) pen or pencil
5) school writing assignments
6) book for ELA and list of future required books
7) any standardized test prep books you own
8) any handouts or homework your tutor has assigned
9) index cards
10) a desire to learn
If you are well-prepared and eager to broaden your knowledge, each and every session will be a success. Good luck!
