Individual Tutoring

It is the clarity of thinking that makes a convincing writer.

We work together on

  • Reading Habits
  • Writing choices
  • Helpful thinking skills

Students learn to ask personal thinking questions

  • How does context effect meaning
  • Which theme is most important

Students are guided and supported to

  • Sustain their argument with a thesis and sub-claims
  • Consider each assertion and test its opposite
  • Check claims against textual evidence
  • Make a hierarchy of ideas
  • Find the best proof for each assertion
  • Explain the evidence to the reader
  • Revise carefully and cite sources
