Questions

Subject: Writing

TutorMe
Question:

When writing an argumentative essay, how do you know what you should write about?

Inactive
Meilani A.
Answer:

Of course, you want to start by jotting down things that relate to the prompt. Then you want to eliminate topics that are "easy grabbers" or simple enough that many people would write about it (if possible). Worst case scenario, if all of your simple jots are "easy grabbers" go with the best three that you have the most knowledge about.

Subject: Music Theory

Question:

How do you remember which note goes where, and what rules to follow?

Answer:

Each piece of music, while different, typically follows similar patterns that can help one to identify what is what. In regards to note placement, if we are talking about voice leading it is important to lead with the bass line first and follow the rules of the book. Never be afraid to check the book for guidance because Music theory books are pretty good about giving an in-depth explanation of what should go where, and if it seems vague, I can help you understand what the book is telling you to do.

Subject: English

Question:

How would you get a student to become engaged in English if they feel it is repetitive and a waste of time?

Answer:

I would let them know that I relate to them and that they are not alone in feeling that way. As a student, I recall feeling that the English Course was a waste of time and repetitive so I began to slack off. I will also let them know, from experience, that all that happens is you fall even more behind and eventually English becomes confusing, rather than repetitive. I will suggest that maybe they are not challenging themselves enough which is causing them to feel bored from stagnancy. I will also do my best to see how to get them more engaged through stimulating their mind with more fun yet challenging English activities.
